Alexandra & Luke: The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake
The night before their wedding had some strong storms that resulted in a few tornados touching down throughout NE Ohio. The venue lost power for a few hours but it, luckily, came back on in the early morning. The day itself was predominantly overcast but they did have a sliver of color in the sky and some amazing clouds for sunset!
The day started with getting ready pictures with the bride and groom. Then Alex had a first look with her father, followed by one with Luke. After the first look, the couple read their private vows to one another. This was followed by couple, wedding party, and some family pictures.
Their ceremony was officiated by Alex's grandfather and was very personal and emotional. There was a moment when Luke fought off a bee that had been flying around that led to some laughter but for the most part the ceremony resulted with many people in tears. After the ceremony, the couple did a few more family and couple pictures and then went inside to enjoy the rest of cocktail hour and mingle with their guests.
After being announced into the reception, Alex and Luke had their first dance. This was followed by the mother-son dance, the father-daughter dance (which was an amazing, choreographed dance to bits of several songs), the cake cutting, several wonderful toasts, and dinner. After dinner, the couple and wedding party came outside for a few sunset & gazebo pictures. Then it was time to go back inside and dance for the rest of the evening!
Congratulations Alex & Luke! It was my pleasure to photograph your wonderful wedding! May your life together be filled with incredible moments and memories! Here are a few of the images they will receive.
