I literally squealed with excitement when Audra & Jason asked me to capture their Toledo Zoo Wedding!!!! (I’m serious, just ask my hubby about my embarrassing middle school girl moment in our living room.) Their wedding was all I could hope for and more – I only wish the day could have been even longer!

Audra and Jason’s story is proof of love that is truly meant to be and that fairytales can come true. Fate brought the two of them to a Starfarm performance (an 80s cover band), Jason was dressed as Marty McFly from Back to the Future, and the rest is history. The two quickly bonded over their mutual interests of fantasies, fairytales, performance arts, comic con, cosplay, Reese’s and cake!

Jason truly took their fairytale love story to a new level when he proposed to Audra in front of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany (that’s the castle Disney used as the inspiration for the Cinderella castle)! He had redesigned her great grandma’s engagement ring and had her best friend record it all. (I can’t tell you how much I would’ve loved to be a part of that Destination Engagement)!

Audra and Jason didn’t choose The Toledo Zoo as their wedding venue for the reason you might think…it wasn’t because of the animals! They saw what many visitors to the zoo might overlook, the truly beautiful architecture. Audra and Jason wanted a wedding that felt like a fairytale; their ceremony in the Rose Garden, reception in the Museum of Science, navy, dusty blue and rose gold color scheme, and beautiful details absolutely brought that vision to life. 

Audra and Jason, it was an absolute privilege to be a part of your wedding day; to capture your once-in-a-lifetime memories, and to meet and celebrate with your family and friends. I am honored to be your Wedding Photographer and your Forever Photographer – I can’t wait to capture all the memories to come!
