If you've been following this blog for a while, you might remember Susy and Shane from their adorable engagement session at a fire station earlier this year! I can't say enough about these two -- they truly have the warmest, kindest souls, and seeing how two such wonderful people have found each other is the best. Needless to say, I have been so excited for this wedding day!
Susy and Shane's ceremony took place at the historic church of St. Thomas Aquinas in Zanesville, Ohio. Susy and her bridesmaids started off the morning getting pampered at a nearby salon while relaxing in their floral robes, and then they came to the church for the final touches of getting ready. Susy's bridal details coordinated so beautifully with her elegant color scheme of champagne and blush, and I love how she honored the memory of her late father with his picture attached to her bouquet. Susy and Shane sent each other gifts before the ceremony, and Susy's sisters and mother helped her put on her stunning, strapless lace bridal gown. She looked like a princess straight out of a fairy tale!
As the ceremony began and Susy's brother walked her down the aisle toward Shane, I definitely saw a tear as he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time. The love that these two share is so sweet! Their traditional ceremony was very beautiful and meaningful. Shane is a firefighter for the New Concord fire department, and ALL of his groomsmen are firefighters too, so not only did they wear their Class A uniforms for the wedding, but Susy and Shane got to ride off from their ceremony on the back of a firetruck! Talk about a send off! Everyone headed to the reception at Scale Haus Banquet Barn to celebrate the newlyweds with lots of good food, dancing, and merriment. We even got a sunset for golden hour pictures and sparklers to end out the night! It was such a perfect day.
Susy and Shane, I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through these pictures as much as I have! I feel so blessed to have been your photographer, and I'm rather sad our time together is over! However, I'm so excited for all that marriage has in store for you, and all the good years to come! Congratulations you two!!
