Maddie and Justin were married on July 27, 2019 in Newton Falls, Ohio.
Maddie and her mom started their morning of by getting their hair styled by her maid of honor, Miranda. Then the ladies finished getting ready at the General Assembly Church of God in Newton Falls. Justin also got ready at the church. Here are a few photos from their morning preparations.
Once they were ready, they decided to see each other for the first time on the lawn near the church’s pavilion. After their first look, it was time for portraits with their bridal party. While taking portraits, I noticed the Army tank in front of the American Legion next door to the church. This was fitting, of course, as Justin serves in the armed forces. Here are a few of their portraits.
After their portraits, it was time for their ceremony. Their ceremony was led by the bride’s grandfather and was the first event in the church’s beautiful brand new sanctuary. The bride’s father brought everybody in attendance to tears when giving his daughter away. Their ceremony included a unity candle and a special musical performance by the bride’s uncle and a close family friend. Here are a few photos from the ceremony.
Right after the ceremony, everybody went to the old sanctuary, which had been transformed into a reception hall for the night. Following dinner it was time for the bouquet toss, garter toss, and cake cutting. The bride’s first attempt at tossing the bouquet ended somewhat unexpectedly, and required a second attempt. The newlyweds spent the remainder of their reception socializing with their guests.
We had such a great time celebrating with Madeline, Justin, their families, and their friends. We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.
