Michelle and Cory’s Park Inn wedding was so beautiful and had so many fun touches throughout the day! The couple had a formal wedding with midnight blue, silver/grey and mint. They had calligraphy geode place cards for all guests as well as a large geode centerpiece at the head table.
Michelle and Cory started their day with getting ready photos including the wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses hanging, rings, and special details. They exchanged gifts and opted to not see each other before the ceremony began. After the short and sweet ceremony at the Park Inn (rescheduled to indoors because of the rain), the sun came out and we were able to travel to the Toledo Museum of Art as well as Middle Grounds Park (and even stopped at Mutt’s for some bar photos!) before arriving at the reception.
Michelle had a unique vision for her wedding photography because she wanted us to capture some night photos including the moon from the balcony of the Presidential Suite of the Park Inn. We were able to get some neat shots later on during the reception as well as some photos with the downtown Toledo cityscape in the background! Michelle knew the moon was going to be close to full and it looked so pretty in the background of their nighttime photos.
The couple met on Tinder, like many of our couples seem to find their match! for the proposal, Michelle said, “On Christmas Eve morning I had been cleaning and planning out the shopping list and getting ready for the holiday festivities and Cory asked if I could do him a favor, when I turned to look to see what he was needing he had the ring and asked if I’d marry him… I said that was easy, yes.” Gotta love those holiday proposals!
Congrats you guys! Good luck with everything!
