Laura and Matt – St. Peters / Marriott, Canton Ohio

The difference:  Florida in May and Ohio in January.  The similarities:  sisters and weddings and great families and a lot of fun and on and on.

The lovely Amy Carruthers and I headed north on a Friday for Saturday’s wedding and spent a side-splitting evening with Amy’s parents, noshing and trading movie quotes and loving on Amy’s dog who reminds me exactly of the Thurber dog.

On Saturday morning, we were greeted at Laura’s Canton Marriott hotel room by Sara, Laura’s sister whose wedding I photographed on Pompano Beach three years ago now.  Let me stop right here and say I love this family!  Each and every one of them is so warm and friendly and I’m so honored to have been invited to photograph two of the three daughters’ weddings (and hope to shoot sister Amy’s too when the time comes!).

So, the family all share those wonderful similarities, but the weddings themselves couldn’t be more different:  35 people on the beach for Sara and 200-some in a cathedral for Laura.  The cathedral was beautiful, with gorgeous natural light, ornate architecture and decorations from Christmas.

After the ceremony, we headed to Glamorgan Castle in Alliance for portraits, then it was back to the Marriott for the party.

Have a look.
