Wedding Date: June 21, 2019
Their wedding day story, by Kathy Simindinger ~ Lima Ohio Wedding Photographer
Ellie and Taren are each well-known and admired in our community. Individually they are amazing people and together they make an incredible couple. You do not have to spend too much time with them to discover that they definitely have something very special going on. Seeing the look in their eyes for each other is proof of their special connection. They share so much joy!
Ellie decided to do a “first look” with her dad and then with Taren. I am a big fan of “first looks” for lots of reasons but being able to capture beautiful outdoor wedding photos before the ceremony is one of the best reasons. It also allows the bride to share private intimate moments with her dad and her groom before the craziness of the day takes over.
When you are planning an outdoor wedding, you hope and pray that the weather will be sunny! Having no rain or wind are always a plus. Ellie and Taren had the best weather of the season for their amazing day. They were blessed with sun, warmth and no wind!
They had gorgeous weather, a beautiful ceremony and a perfect wedding day!
