Exactly one year after Alex surprised Sarah with a mountain-top proposal while hiking in Arizona, they stood in front of their family and friends in Ohio and began their marriage adventure! After hanging out with Sarah and Alex for their Cleveland engagement session this summer, I just knew that they were going to have the most stress-free, laid-back kinda wedding day. Because that’s just how they are! Planning a wedding in Ohio while living on the other side of the country is no easy feat, but these two did it. As musicians, music was obviously an important element of their day, and I absolutely loved how incredible music was woven throughout the festivities! Steel drums serenaded guests as they arrived at Waters Edge Vineyard for the nuptials, and continued as Sarah’s dad escorted her down the aisle (think Phoebe’s wedding from Friends!). The party started immediately after Sarah and Alex said I Do, and the Bluewater Kings Band had the guests to their feet and on the dance floor in no time! From portraits out in the beautiful fall leaves with their bridal party to Handel’s Ice Cream after dinner, this was the best day ever!
Congratulations Sarah and Alex, your #bigfraggreekwedding was a dream! Such an honor to be a part of the fun and to join your families in celebrating your beautiful love story!

Ceremony time! With the incredible steel drums!
That moment when the flower girl regrets agreeing to all the duties associated with her role…
She still made it down the aisle though!
It was bound to happen eventually…
