It’s already the end of June and I feel like Spring came and went. What a quick but wonderful season it was! Today I’m sharing Madison + Eric’s gorgeous Spring wedding at Stambaugh Auditorium. Their wedding was breathtaking and the day could not have been more gorgeous. Stambaugh has all kinds of nooks and crannies to take great pictures. One of my favorite spots to get the bride by herself is right by the elevator. There is this enormous, decorative window that just makes her stand out so perfectly (as she should!). Madison’s dress had just the right amount of sparkle and if you look close, the tulle had this amazing sheen/sparkle to it. I looooved it.
Trish (my assistant) and I went to high school with Eric. He is still that goofy, handsome, life of the party but you could tell Madison was meant to be with him. He just lights up with her in the room and shows affection like no one’s watching. It’s always fun to see people you grew up with and how much life has changed. Makes the world small. The first session I did with them I had no idea who Madison’s boyfriend was. When they showed up for their pictures, Eric and I were like, “whahhhhtt??” I’ll never forget that. It’s just odd to run into Riverside grads in Youngstown haha!
Another few favs from this day: Eric’s niece is ADORABLE!!! I loved the carriage she came down the aisle in. The jumping pics are super fun and show this party’s personality fo sho! Eric’s Best Man speech was hilarious, hands down. Madison’s dad had some of the sweetest words for his daughter before their dance together. It was presh. Erin (Eric’s sister) and her husband did an awesome flip as their intro into the reception!! And Eric and his mom did the best Mother/Son dance EVER. I wish I had a video!
Enjoy this beautiful May wedding gallery!! Congrats Mr & Mrs Clayton!
