Julie & Chad: Canfield Casino

Wow! Wedding number forty-two is here! This is the final wedding of the 2011 season! As I write this one I feel a sense of relief that I can officially call 2011 a wrap! This was probably our longest season in a while. Its funny to look back at the weddings we shot in January this year, seems like a decade ago to me. Anyway I’ve blogged every wedding from 2011 and I thank you all for coming back week after week and supporting my blog. I probably don’t say it enough but thank you to you all!! More I look forward to doing it again in 2012! Now, let’s get into Julie and Chad’s blog post!

What can I say about December 10, 2011? Well for starters it was not your typical December day. Sure earlier that week we got some snow but come Saturday it was close to forty degrees and super sunny! In the bridal suite was our smiling and happy bride, Julie. She was in the Make Me Fabulous chair getting her pretty on. Our friend and wedding coordinator Katie O‘ was on the scene. Thank god for wedding coordinators. I wish I could make it mediatory for my clients to use them! It’s just great because I can be creative and do my thing while making pretty pics! I’ll leave that rant for another blog though. Anyway once Julie was dressed we then headed to Congress Park, met up with videographer Al Woodard and had some fun. It was chilly but we did our thing and worked quick. I had Julie come out the front door of the Historic Canfield Casino for the first look and I loved it. That building is so photogenic inside and out! After the first look and other group shots it was time for a ceremony. The parlor was beautifully decorated by Experience and Creative Design and was filling up fast with guests arriving by the busload. Once they tied the knot a wonderful Mansion Catering cocktail hour began. After cocktails City Rhythm set it off and the floor was packed per usual all night. I must say this was a great one to end our 2011 wedding season with. Julie and Chad are awesome people and I wouldn’t have had 12.10.11 any other way! Thank you guys so much for choosing us for the big day! I know that honeymoon is treating you well!!
