Matt and Maria’s December wedding was one of the most well thought out, beautiful weddings. We started the day at Julie’s Friends in Boardman.
Then we headed off to The makeup boutique in canfield for professional airbrush makeup. They did an INCREDIBLE job! They had such a lovely makeup studio in Canfield Ohio for getting bridal makeup done! Matt and Maria have a sweet little one named Emma. She had her own matching princess dress. I loved how they included her in their big day! From the daddy daughter first look to the coloring table at the reception there were cute touches that spoke to their love for her. I loved their flowers! Greens Florist did an incredible job. Then it was time to get ready! Maria thought of every detail, and her bridesmaids had the cutest matching flannels! We also loved Maria’s dad. He was so happy during the entire day. The daddy daughter dance had me bawling like a baby.
Matt is such a cool guy. He’s one of those people who you feel like you can be safe with and also have tons of fun with. He’s the perfect fit for Maria. Matt’s groomsmen were my favorite kind of people, witty and sarcastic and ready to party!
Matt and Emma had a daddy daughter first look! Emma is the light of my life! She made this whole wedding 10 times cuter, and her daddy made the wedding so beautiful with how much he loves her mommy. After a beautiful ceremony at Westminster Presbyterian Church, it was time for some portraits and the party! Their wedding reception was at the vineyards at pine lake. What a beautiful venue!
The dances at this wedding got me. I cried like a baby and I guarantee there were no dry eyes in the room after the daddy daughter dance. After the cake cutting it was time to party! I love weddings that take the time during the day to enjoy the tradition and beauty of a wedding and then letting loose to party afterwards and enjoying the evening with your favorite friends and family! After we said our goodbyes, the DJ announced that there would be just one last special dance. I was so thankful to be able to stick around for this “step-daddy daughter dance.” What a beautiful moment.
Matt and Maria, you two are amazing parents, and will be an amazing husband and wife to each other. Thank you so much for including us in your day!
