kacee + haden // defiance ohio wedding photographer [ st. johns catholic church + knights of columbus ]

This year I have been blessed with many couples that have included me in most of their wedding planning. I’ve helped plan timelines, suggested wedding vendors to create the vendor team, and became really great friends with a lot of my Brides. We’ve shared a lot of laughter, bonded over wedding planning, and spent one of their best days of their lives together.

Let’s fast forward to the wedding day when things get crazy and you find yourself with a rainy wedding day. You’re sipping a mimosa while hair and makeup is happening and stressing about where you will do portraits, etc. What do you do? In Kacee and Haden’s case, they trusted their vendor team to make it work.

With hundreds of weddings under our belts, most us vendors have created a “wedding day process” that ensures that you’ll have the photos/video/cake/dress/music/ect. that you love — much like what drew you to us in the first place. To be given the opportunity to carry out my wedding day process while also being given creative control on a rainy day.. magic.

Kacee and Haden’s wedding day started out at Second Story in Defiance, Ohio where the girls had spent the night. Second Story is in downtown and one of the coolest apartment/getting ready venues.. ever. After the girls finished getting ready we headed over to the church for the biggest part of the day, the ceremony! Haden’s sweet smile never left his face as the doors swung open and Kacee and her dad walked down the aisle. All the heart eyes for that! Fast forwarding to portraits — we started out at Haden’s grandparents farm in Oakwood, Ohio where videographer extraordinaire, Daniel Alecio threw up his drone and captured some fun content! After the farm we drove back into Defiance for a downtown scene. The reception kicked off at the Knights of Columbus which was decorated to the nines! Kacee and Haden wrapped up their wedding celebration with 2 full weeks in Hawaii — living the dream!

Kacee and Haden, congratulations!! Thanks for such a fun day! Can we relive it all over again?!
