It’s always so helpful when you can work with wedding couples who make your job easy! Estephan and Lydia’s summer wedding in Tiffin, Ohio started at their community church and then to a local venue for the reception. I have known Lydia since she was in high school, so it makes shooting this wedding more special! They had so many family and friends there to help celebrate their love!
I have known Lydia’s family for a long time! Her brother Austin was in my class all through high school, and we have been friends throughout the years. Estephan and Lydia like to say that they met through their parish, Grace Community Church. However, they first met over Instagram and then realized they both attended the same church. Lydia has graduated with a degree in early childhood/intervention and will be teaching 4th grade in the fall. Estephan is currently a marketing business development consultant for a financial group in Columbus.
They had a beautiful non-denominational ceremony at Grace Community Church, where they’re both members. You could tell that Lydia and Estephan have a great support system from those who attend church with them. Before their reception and after family formals at the church, the entire bridal party went with me to downtown Tiffin! From Cherry Alley and old buildings, there are so many great spots to shoot in this pretty town! The ladies were such troopers, walking all around wearing heels.
Estephan and Lydia’s reception was held at Camden Falls. They had a lovely first dance and a great time celebrating with lots of dancing and family members catching up! It has been amazing to watch Lydia grow up. She has grown from the little girl I remember on the sidelines watching me cheer into a beautiful young lady. Lydia, I wish you and Estephan only the best for years to come. You two have a love that is unconditional and it was obvious on your wedding day in Tiffin. Thank you both for choosing me as your wedding photographer!
