If you know me, you know that Stillwater Place at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has my heart because it's where Pete and I got second married (thanks to Covid), so it stands to reason that couples also getting married there have my heart, as well. And boy, is that true! Emily and Joe are just fantastic and have such a great group of friends and family. My second shooter Tori and I just had the best day hanging out with them and capturing their amazing zoo wedding magic on film (aka memory cards, but film sounds more cute and nostalgic, so just go with it). A presumptuous wedding guest name Quilbert the Porcupine (see below) tried very hard to upstage the bride with his adorableness, but to no avail, because Emily just absolutely stunned (I got goosebumps when she put the veil on, I'm not even kidding). And the dance floor, don't even get me started. This group knew how to MOVE! The wonderful day ended with a sparkler exit sending Joe and Emily on their way to a honeymoon in Mexico. Emily and Joe, congrats. I hope you felt the love that surrounded you on that day, because I know I did. You are two very special people.
