Nichole & Dan | Miami University Formal Gardens Wedding08.22.13

Miami University Wedding

More than nine years later, Nichole and Dan returned to the spot where it all began. They became Miami Mergers just a stone’s throw away from the dorm where they met as freshman. At the time, they were new to Oxford, new to the big campus and new to each other. Neither had any idea that less than 10 years later, they would be married.

“Dan was the first boy I met on campus on freshman move-in day,” Nichole said. “I lived in the room above Dan and needed some ideas on how to make all the furniture fit.”

Dan was dating someone else at the time but as the two got to know each other, he realized how great Nichole was. Her caring nature tops his list of favorite things about his new wife.

“Our first summer of dating, she did a study abroad program in Russia,” he said. “I found myself missing her so much during that time that I had to call just to hear her voice. Even though I racked up a $700 phone bill it was worth it.”

Nichole and Dan are so loved and respected by their family and friends, and it was fun to see how much fun everyone had celebrating these two. Thank you so much for asking Nathan and I to be a part of your day, guys. It was such a meaningful wedding for both of us, and we wish you all the happiness in the world!

Nicole & Chris | Outdoor Warren Ohio Wedding Sneak Peek08.20.13

Once in awhile, I don’t get to meet my couples in person until their wedding day. That was the case with Nicole and Chris, but it really didn’t matter because they were so friendly and welcoming and ready for anything. What a blessing it is to work with mature, kind couples who are 100% ready to get married. It was so heartwarming to see these two so wrapped up in each other. You’ll see that soon enough in their pictures, but for now, a little sneak peek …

Hailee & Stefan | Elegant Rustic Nolan Barn Wedding08.15.13

Wakeman, Ohio Nolan Barn Wedding

It’s the classic cheerleader meets football player story. Hailee and Stefan are high school sweethearts, and they credit a powderpuff football game for really bringing them together.

“Stefan was very respectful,” Hailee said. “I always knew he truly valued my beliefs and me as a person. He has always treated me the way every lady deserves to be treated.”

It’s true that Stefan is a gentleman 100 percent, and when asked what he loves most about Hailee? Well, his answer was too sweet to leave out. :)

“She is the most loving human being in the world and she cares for everyone no matter what their background,” he said. “If we go somewhere in public and she sees someone eating by themselves, she get legitimately conceded for their happiness. Even though I hate to see her sad, I love to see her react to those situations because her heart is so big.”

It’s completely obvious how loved these two are themselves. I’ve never seen a closer knit group of friends or family at a wedding before, and having followed Hailee on Instagram for awhile now, I know how much her students love her, as well (she’s going to be a teacher, y’all!). You guys, it was a pleasure for me to document your day! I’m so excited for all that lays ahead for you, and you know I’ll be keeping up with you two. :)

Nichole & Dan | Miami University Formal Gardens Wedding Sneak Peek08.12.13

Last weekend was so fun for Nathan and me. We got to visit our old stomping grounds of THE Miami University for a Miami Merger wedding! I did gymnastics with Nichole while a student at Miami, and it was so surreal to be photographing her wedding! She and Dan were a dream to work with, and reminiscing was exactly what I needed!

For now, a little peek …

Chelsea & Drew | Cleveland Ballroom at Park Lane Wedding08.08.13

Cleveland Ballroom at Park Lane Wedding

They weren’t exactly chummy after their first meeting. Chelsea and Drew worked the same summer job on their break from college, and in Drew’s own words: “For some reason I was totally dedicated to my summer job. I am such a perfectionist.” That was the problem.┬áChelsea describes Drew’s dedication as “enthusiasm” and it totally overwhelmed her.

“He acted like he knew everything and his way was the best way to do whatever task,” she said. “He will tell you he was the manager but really he was a cafe associate just like me.”

Something changed, however, because after that first summer of working together, the two stayed in touch when they went back to their respective schools. Chelsea realized that Drew is just super warm and friendly and cares extra about everything he does.

It took a couple more years before they would even start dating, but there was no looking back once they started. Their relationship even survived long distance after Drew graduated from college before Chelsea.

“I love Drew’s smile,” Chelsea said. “It is irresistible and makes it so hard to get mad at him. I also love his sense of humor. He knows how to make me laugh and can brighten any mood.”

Chelsea and Drew are the type of people that feel like your friends 10 minutes after meeting them. They’re both so friendly, and I’ve loved getting to know them this past year! Thank you for always being so awesome, you two. I can’t wait to see where life takes you (and what kind of dog you settle on)!

Amanda & Justin | Vintage Edinboro, Pennsylvania Garden Wedding08.02.13

Goodell Gardens Edinboro Pennsylvania Wedding

Amanda and Justin are the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. They have the biggest hearts and their family and friends look up to them so much. I want to be like Amanda and Justin when I grow up. :)

These two have made it through thick and thin. Justin’s a military man and has been all over the world in the last few years. And through it all, their relationship has not faltered. It’s such a testament to their characters to hear their story and realize that though they’re only in their early 20s, they have the maturity and commitment and compassion of people twice their age.

I could go on and on about these two, but I will let Nora, Amanda’s maid of honor and best friend of nearly 10 years, tell you what is true and real about this bride. She gave the best and most sincere toast I’ve ever heard at a wedding:

“Amanda, you possess an inward, as well as an outward, beauty that is completely inignorable. You have the kindest heart of anybody that I know, and I love how you always stay true to yourself and your values. I have always and will always look up to you for that. Amanda makes all of those around her better.”

And Nora couldn’t forget about Justin:

“One of my favorite memories (of Justin) is when he came up to me one time when I was working and he was talking about Amanda. He looked me right in the eye and he said, ‘Nora, I love her so much.’”

Seriously. Pull at my heart strings.

Amanda and Justin, I feel so blessed to have met you two. It really is true that you make those around you better, including me. I’m so looking forward to following your journey as a married couple, and I wish you all the best in North Carolina!

Katie & Tim | Hyatt Regency Cleveland Arcade Wedding07.26.13

Cleveland Hyatt Regency at the Arcade Wedding

I’m really excited to end my week on a high note! This wedding is one of my favorites (hence the reason it’s a mile long!), and that’s partly because Katie and Tim have the sweetest story.

During their ceremony, the priest started his homily by sharing that these two were baptized as babies at St. Raphael’s not too long after one another. Pretty amazing, huh? Katie says that she and Tim met in elementary school, but I really love the fact that their story can be traced back to baptism in the church. How incredibly poignant that these two got married in that same church years later.

As if I couldn’t like these two enough already, they’re also both Miami grads … making them Miami Mergers now! :) … and you know how I feel about Miami. :)

Katie and Tim are truly the kindest, patient and most considerate people you will ever meet. I feel so lucky that I got to meet them and work with them. Thank you guys for having me along on your big day. It was an honor to document each piece! Sending lots of hugs your way as you start your new life together!

There’s no denying photobooths are fun, right? Right. That’s why we’ve started a LBP live photobooth for clients (weddings and otherwise!). A HUGE thank you to Chelsea and Drew who asked us to debut our photobooth at their wedding. We had a ridiculous amount of fun … your friends and family know how to photobooth like pros (yes, “photobooth” is now a verb).

We are now officially booking photobooths, and they are all run by my talented hubby, Nathan. E-mail info@lanebaldwinphotography.com for more info! :)

Aimee & Brian | Outdoor Cleveland Wedding07.23.13

Outdoor Cleveland Ohio Wedding

Brian fully admits that he chased Aimee for the better part of a year before she agreed to a date. Her side of the story is a little different though.

“I knew I found my husband pretty quickly after I met him,” she said, “which is why I wouldn’t date him for eight months. I knew he’d be the last guy I dated.”

Both Aimee and Brian are teachers and it’s evident in the way they treat others. They’re both so caring and really work to make sure that everyone else is happy. Their wedding day was so selfless, and I love that about them. I’m pretty sure this wedding contained the most laughing out of any wedding I’ve ever photographed. You’ll see it in the pictures below :)

Aimee and Brian, thank you for inviting me into your lives and making me laugh all day. :) I know you two will have a happy, happy life together!
