This wedding was elegant, classy and FUN! Ben and Lisa were married recently at St. Augustine Church in Minster, Ohio. As you drive to and through small towns in Ohio, you know which one you are approaching by the steeple in the distance. This was my first time at St. Augustine and I saw not one, but two steeples from a distance as I approached the church.
When I arrived at the church there were 2 charter buses outside. I knew that Ben and Lisa had a huge wedding party but thought the buses seemed like a massive way to be transported. As it turned out there was a Catholic Church tour happening on their wedding day and it had stopped at the church. Thus the buses. Ben and Lisa did have a bus, but not chartered. 🙂
As I mentioned, Ben and Lisa had a big wedding party. I have to give them kudos for being so cooperative and easy to work with. They were just terrific all day long. And I’m just putting this out there; the garter toss photos are hands down the most fun garter toss pics ever. Maybe I should re-phrase that – it was garter catch that was so funny. I have a photo below. The toasts, the dances and the love made the day such a beautiful day to be part of.
Thank you Ben and Lisa. I loved working with you from our first meeting last year. All the best to you as you begin your new life together.
