Ruth – 7.20.19

Erica and Zack’s wedding day was straight out of a fairytale… a very very warm fairytale, but a fairytale nonetheless!

Their gorgeous day began with final touch-ups and a first look at The Winerie – the perfect setting for this beautiful, bohemian bride. Perhaps our favorite first look in 1826 history! When Zack got his first glimpse of his future bride to be, we all started to melt, and not just because of the humidity (it was pushing 90° that day)! Pro tip ladies: get yourself a man that looks at you the way Zack looks at Erica 😉

Erica and Zack professed their love in front of all of their closest family and friends in the serene back lawn of The Winerie. They exchanged tearful vows, sweet glances, and symbolized their love with rings and a hydrangea tree planting ceremony.

We then went downtown Sandusky to some of our favorite spots for some couple and wedding party portraits. They hopped on The Cleveland Browns themed bus – their favorite team – and got the party started! After sometime downtown, we came back to cool off and get ready for the dance-filled night that was to come!

We could go on and on about how much we loved this day. Erica and Zack were truly one of our favorite couples to work with! They trusted us to capture their love in the best light, and we think we did just that. Enjoy scrolling through some of our favorite images we captured that day. You’re bound to fall in love with these to the same way we have!
