Schafer/Drawve – 6.9.18

There’s a magical, little place tucked away in the city of Milan called The Culinary Vegetable Institute. If you’ve never been, do yourself a favor and make sure you experience it at least once in your lifetime. The property is gorgeous and the food is delicious!! Now throw in one of the happiest couples that you’ve ever met, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a beautiful wedding day.

Nathan and Adam live in NYC but chose to celebrate their day in Nathan’s hometown. And by day, we actually mean entire weekend. With guests flying in from all over the country, they really wanted to treat them to the best the area has to offer. From a trip to the islands to the rehearsal dinner at a chic loft downtown Sandusky, guests got a peek at what makes our area so special. 

All you have to do is take a look at these photos to see that these two were meant for each other. We’re giving them the award for “Best First Look” to date! We are so in love with their whole album, but really, how could we not be? It was a beautiful summer day and we had two handsome and extremely photogenic grooms. 

You’ll see from the reception photos how much love and support was surrounding Nathan and Adam – both in person and in spirit. There were tears, there was laughter, and a heck of a lot of dancing all underneath that big white tent.

Congrats you two. We can’t wait to see what life has in store for you both!
