Violet and Jeremiah’s September wedding at Avalon Manor set a number of records - shortest distance for the photographer as the girls got ready a half block away and more importantly, most tears at a wedding ceremony, I’m not kidding, the entire place was crying happy tears for sure.
I first noticed the tears as Violet showed her mom her “something old” locket. Our flower girl and daughter of the bride got us laughing by jumping into the dress. After a robe shot outside, it was onto bridesmaid photos and then the first look at Lake County Fairgrounds.
When Violet arrived at Lake County Fairgrounds, Jeremiah was waiting for her at the old covered bridge. The bride took a long walk through the dark and emerged into the light as the happy couple embraced.
After our wedding party group pictures I walked along the Lake County Fairgrounds with Violet and Jeremiah taking romantic photos beneath the tall trees.
The wedding ceremony took place outside at the gazebo at Avalon Manor. Tears were on display from the bride and groom, the speakers, the audience and father of the bride as well.
After family pictures we headed inside where a donut wall was set up for treats and each table was determined by year and accompanied by a picture of the bride and groom from that time period.
