Anthony and Stacey took their time meticulously planning a full day of celebration for their wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and all of their hard work definitely paid off! The morning began in the Villas of the always gorgeous Gervasi Vineyards in Canton. After the wedding party and family were dressed, we headed over to St. Peters Catholic Church in downtown Canton, a grand historic building which is dear to Stacey’s heart as she teaches in the school there and attended as a child. As the church filled up, the girls stayed cool in the limo outside making sure the bride was hidden until the perfect moment when she walked down that long beautiful aisle. After Anthony and Stacey officially became Mr. and Mrs., the whole group headed back over to Gervasi for some great group shots. One of our favorite parts of a wedding day is when we get the bride and groom separated from the group so that we can capture them enjoying some quiet moments together in the midst of their very busy, exciting day. Anthony and Stacey were no exception and we hope these are images they can cherish for years to come.
In the midst of all this, guests were making their way to the dinner reception held at La Pizzaria in North Canton. Upon entering they were greeted by delicious appetizers and a live saxophonist setting the mood for a great night. It’s always fun to see the special couple, family, and wedding party relax at this point of the day knowing that they are surrounded by love ones who can’t wait to celebrate and get the party going. After dinner, cutting the cake, and first dances were over, another very special moment took place–and it was definitely one of my favorites. Stacey’s grandma turned 93 the day of the wedding and of course the thoughtful bride planned a little surprise for her. I think her grandma was trying to figure out why people had started to gather around but you can tell by the look on her face that she was not suspecting a cake and singing in her honor! What a sweet moment for everyone to be a part of. As the night went on, we had a great time capturing all of the fun everyone was having on & off the dance floor. It was a great day filled with memorable details and most importantly, a couple who is well loved.
Anthony and Stacey, you have such fun, joyful, supportive people in your lives and we really enjoyed being a part of the big celebration of your marriage! We wish you all the best in the years to come as you grow in love together.
