A couple weeks ago I wrote this post about my best friend Julia’s wedding back in our hometown of Toledo, OH. Being the forgetful girl that I am, I totally forgot to pack my camera to capture some photos of the big day.
Well, this week Julia posted some shots her photographer Jan Hudson took and they’re too beautiful not to share! I’ve pulled out some of my favorites that I think really capture the feeling of the day.
Julia gave all her bridesmaid these super cute tote bags to carry all the essentials we’d need for the day.
Her flowers were soo pretty and really popped against the black bridesmaid dresses.
Julia was a little nervous before walking down the aisle, so being the amazing bridesmaid that I am, I loosened her up a little. haha.
Jake and Julia are both really laid back, fun-loving people, so it was really funny when Jake said “You Bet! errr I do!”
Their reception was at Toledo Country Club, which is a beautiful venue. It’s set right against the Maumee River and is lush with trees and flowers.
To kick off the cocktail hour, they had cornhole set up for their guest to play. It helped set the tone for a fun evening!
The inside of the country club, where dinner was served, has a really cool green paneling on the walls. Julia and her mom added the white lantern balls and some amazing centerpieces.
After dinner, we moved outside to where there is a dance floor and a balcony where guest can watch the action.
The little touches Julia and her mom incorporated really add a level of elegance and intimacy to the reception you don’t see very often.
Since Jake and Julia met at Ohio University and many of their guest are alumni (including me!) we gathered together to show our Bobcat pride.
Luke and I had so much fun at Julia’s wedding. Everyone was in the best mood, the weather was perfect, the food was delicious and the dance floor was packed!
Thanks for letting me share your beautiful wedding on my blog Julia! You were a breath-taking bride. I’m so happy you found your prince charming!
