St. Bede's the Venerable Church & Historic Route 20 Event Center: Amy & Andy
I met Amy at the We Said Yes! bridal show in Madison, OH in March and their wedding wound up being my last wedding of 2021! It was partly sunny and chilly out but there was no snow or rain - decent weather for a late November wedding! I started out by meeting the girls to get a few detail shots and images of Amy getting ready. Then we headed over to the church. Amy got into her dress there and had a first look with her dad and her brother. I also got a few pictures of Andy before the ceremony.
It was a full, traditional Catholic ceremony. You could see the love Andy has for Amy in his expression as he saw her walk down the aisle! She was a beautiful bride! Following the Processional, the Opening Prayer, Readings, Gospel, and Homily (Father Tim delivered an engaging speech!) took place. Then it was time for the Rite of Marriage, Exchange of Vows and Rings. The Sign of Peace, Communion, and Recessional followed. Outside the church, the guests cheered as Amy & Andy walked out of the building! We went back into the church after a bit for family pictures. We also took a few wedding party and bride & groom pictures.
After arriving at the reception venue, the bridal party went out back into the field and took a few wedding party pictures and a couple more of the Amy & Andy during the pretty "blue hour" - the time after sunset when the sky is a pretty blue color. I love long veils... so getting a few pictures with that beautiful veil flowing was a must! After Amy & Andy were introduced into the venue, they immediately did their first dance followed by the cake cutting. Toasts and a pray were followed by a delicious meal! Father/daughter & mother/son dances were done after dinner. A group picture of all the guests and the bouquet toss also were done amid the partying and dancing.
I enjoyed working with Amy & Andy. I wish them all the best as they go through their lives together. Here are just a few of the many images they will receive!
