Wow! Time has certainly been just passing me by this fall! It seems like only yesterday I shot this fabulous wedding–but it’s been a month and a half!
Mr. and Mrs. DeMay, you are wonderful! I am so honored to have captured your joyful day and I have loved seeing you happily married since that day!
Here’s a rundown on the fabulous day.
I was sick.
Like–I took off three days from my full-time job that week. Went to the doctor’s office twice that week.
By the time the wedding day came around, I had finally figured out the perfect mixture of meds to keep me going. I believe I was on about three or four different medications and, of course, adrenaline. I always bring tissues with me to weddings for the brides, but this time I had extra for me.
But seriously, this wedding kicks boo-tay!
Be on the lookout for the details.
The guys had a blast before the ceremony.
Kim was such a happy bride. Seriously. All she did was smile.
These girls were fun! And beautiful!
I like the nice touches this couple put together for their wedding party.
The bride and groom decided to forgo the first look (which I LOVE). They had a prayer together before the ceremony.
Ray was so nervous before Kim arrived.
These two love birds were married at Rustic Hills Country Club in Medina, Ohio. This gazebo is so cute!
This guy gets the award for best reaction to seeing his bride! #winning!
And for good reason.
The wedding was precious. And there may or may not have been a quote or two from The Princess Bride. I happen to be partial toward the man in the suit. The one who is clearly in charge here. ;)
They chose a sand ceremony to symbolize their love and commitment to one another.
I love the exchange of rings. The bride and groom are always so giddy since they are formalizing their commitment to one another.
And they’re married!
Obviously, Ray is delighted!
Seriously, didn’t even stage the groomsmen’s reaction to Ray’s ring.
But seriously, my favorite moment of the day right after the bride and groom have left the wedding location. Usually I get at least a second with them before the craziness resumes. They usually chat a bit and sometimes I sneak in a pose or two. This is the moment I look forward to all day long.
What an epic bridal party! You guys rocked! Thanks for being up for all of my crazy ideas!
Here are the many faces of Rayberly. Love these two!
Seriously, Kim. Your. Shoes. Stole. The. Show.
Aw, the bride and groom were actually nice to each other when they cut the cake. My mother would be proud of them.
First dance. This time deserves to be frozen for ever. In love with these moments.
I have a soft spot for father/daughter dances. Love how he looks at Kim.
Seriously. There are no words for how awesome these faces are.
And BAM. They’re married!
I can’t believe you are finally married! Thanks for letting me peek inside your day and capture the memories to preserve for your forever love!

PS: I got to dance with the preacher man. He’s a hunk.
PSS: Remember how I was sick the week leading up the wedding? This girl–she seriously saved my life. Thanks, Jess, for helping me out!
