Aurora civil wedding ceremony at Barrington Golf Club | Maria and Dale

a civil wedding ceremony and reception at barrington golf club in Aurora, Ohio


It is not easy to put into words how we feel when we think of Maria and Dale and their wedding day at Barrington Golf Club in Aurora, Ohio.  Immediately the words, kind, friendly, fun-loving, and selfless come to mind, but those words just don’t seem like enough.  This couple cares so much about the well-being of others it could make the hardest heart melt.  From the moment we entered their rooms in the morning until we said our good-byes that night, they were asking us how WE were doing on THEIR wedding day.  Oh my goodness! It is this level of genuine caring for others that makes them such a dynamic pair and what will create a solid foundation for their beautiful marriage.

It has been such a pleasure getting to know Maria and Dale over the past year and a half.  We shot their first engagement session in the fall of last year, and their second and third in the summer of this year.  Yes, you heard me right.  THREE engagement sessions, but it really is so refreshing to work with people who honestly value what you do. It makes all the long days and nights worthwhile. Being able to deliver an outstanding and diverse portfolio of images for a couple that truly appreciates your craft is just the icing on the cake, and speaking of cake…

There were so many gorgeous details throughout Barrington that you could tell were very lovingly selected by our bride and groom, but our most favorite out of all of these details was hands down the cake/donut table adorned with Funko Pop versions of the Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert characters from “Parks and Recreation”.  Between this and ‘breakfast for dinner’ you got a great feel for their quirky personalities, and can I say that we love quirky. It is the best!

a special message to our bride and groom:

Maria and Dale, we cannot thank you enough for choosing us to capture these timeless memories for you. It was absolutely wonderful watching the two of you being showered with so much love and affection. You deserve every moment of it.  We have never worked with such a kind and generous couple, and we appreciate the compassion and humanity that you give to others. You are both so amazing, and you have officially set the bar very high for others. Thank you so much for being you! We love you guys.
