Last Saturday was the epitome of a perfect fall day and I was so excited for Kim and Kevin and their Perrysburg wedding! The day started out at St. Rose Church in Perrysburg for the ceremony and ended in Walbridge, Ohio. Their wedding was fall themed with wooden branches and gold accents. The colors for the wedding party were navy and wine and it went perfectly with the fall colors that were popping up outside. Although it was busy, we did the portraits and wedding party photos at Sidecut Park in Maumee.
The couple originally met in high school but never really hung out with each other or talked much while in school. After they graduated, they had a mutual friend that they would hang out with that got them chatting together. The pair “talked” for about a year of just on the phone/texting or hanging out without being “official”. Kim said, “I’m not sure the exact moment I knew Kevin was the one, I just know that multiple times I kept thinking or saying “I can’t imagine my life without Kevin”. I do remember after a year of officially dating the first “I love you’s” were after Kevin’s 21st birthday.”
After 8 years together. Kevin proposed downtown in front of Mudhens baseball stadium in January 2018. After a few years of dating Kevin would always get picked on by friends or family of his asking “when are you going to propose” and I’d get the “Are you ever getting married”. We both knew one day we would. There was no rush because we knew we loved each other and nothing would change. Kim said, “We all were having a good time and decided to leave [another Toledo bar] to go to Fricker’s around the corner, as we were crossing the street I turned back to yell at my friends to hurry and catch up, and when I turned around I was completely surprised seeing Kevin down on one knee! He even took off his hat! I cried and we hugged and celebrated the rest of the night! Our families and friends were ecstatic and of course, would say “it’s about time!”
Along with perfect weather after the ceremony for portraits, we snuck away for some sunset photos and then the couple danced the night away. It really was such a perfect day – congratulations Kim and Kevin!
