He stood in front of their guests and told stories. Stories of his once curly-headed blonde daughter that wanted a new look the day before school pictures. He talked about an eight-year-old racing a golf cart around their farm and getting stuck. It was clear how much he loved the little girl she once was. But what was even more clear was how much he trusted his baby girls heart in the hands of her new husband.
Jim gave one of the most heartfelt father of the bride speeches I have witnessed in a long time. By the end of the speech, every guest sitting at the Grand Barn in Glenmont Ohio learned something new about Megan and Tyler. I, for one, learned that Tyler is a huge Star Wars fan, which I can totally get behind!!
But I also learned how special their love is! I saw a glimpse of that love last September when we met for their engagement session at OARDC in Wooster, but spending all day together on Saturday was such an honor.
Both were nervous in the morning when I arrived, but you can see that anxiety lift away the moment they saw each other during their first look. They were together. Holding onto each other. Actually spending their wedding day together. Instead of apart.
What a joy it was photographing these two on their wedding day at the Grand Barn at the Mohicans. If you’ve been following along for a while now, you know this Ohio wedding venue holds a special place in my heart. Josh and I said our vows in the exact same spot that Megan and Tyler said theirs. We took photos in similar places. And even spent the night of our wedding in the same treehouse!
Mr. and Mrs. Kraker – from the bottom of my heart, thank you! Thank you for trusting me with this precious day and providing you with everlasting photos to help you remember how perfect the wedding day was! Even with our rain delay!
