Kassandra and Cornelius were wed this past July in their current hometown of Brooklyn, NY, witnessed by their closest family members. After reading their wedding website, viewing images from their marriage day and talking with the couple for the past few months, I felt like I already knew them when I was finally able to meet them this past weekend on the day of their marriage celebration! When Kassandra and I first spoke, she described the theme to this celebratory event as being "Funky Brooklyn meets a Sandusky Sunset"- the stage was set! I spent months visualizing what kind of images I'd capture for these two. Held in the bride's childhood hometown of Sandusky, the locations were meaningful as the thrones of people who came to celebrate alongside them.
The bride and groom prepared for the event at Kassandra's parents home. Her gorgeous sunshine yellow Jenny Yoo gown paired perfectly with her gold jewelry accents and Cornelius' J. Crew attire and Etsy-found necktie.
One of the most classic women I've photographed, this makes my favorite image of the day.
The reception celebration was held at the family owned Woussickett Golf Course, where Kassandra spent most of her childhood. Tina B. Florals created the colorful ambiance of the space with bright fabric, lit paper lanterns and stunning floral creations.
That's right, folks! There were fireworks for their celebration!
