When planning your wedding, it’s never a bad idea to stick with a classic and timeless vibe, and that’s exactly what Krissy and Chuck’s friends and families got to enjoy at their wedding reception at The Toledo Club. Before dancing the night away at the spectacular evening of celebration, the couple said “I do” at the Historic Church of Saint Patrick, the very same church that Krissy’s parents were married in. Derk’s Works captured some truly breathtaking photos of the couple on their big day, from their private first look to the sparkler send-off.
Krissy and Chuck
The Toledo Club, Toledo, Ohio
My wedding dress was custom designed by Tony Ward. I absolutely loved the illusion neckline. However, my favorite thing about my dress was the removable tulle train. Between the cathedral veil and the extra train, my ceremony look was dramatic and elegant. And then for the reception I removed the train and veil and was ready to dance. Then even later, when the real dancing began, I changed into an all gold sequin party dress, and was ready to hit the dance floor.
Our photographer was the absolute best! Everyone raved about him! He captured every single important moment. He was fearless and flexible, and he was ready to work around any obstacles. My favorite part was that he managed to keep all guests and wedding party members away from our first look. Our first look was so natural and comfortable, and the pictures turned out just wonderful.
I let my bridesmaids pick their own dresses, and I encouraged sparkle gold looks. My sisters wore white to stand out as maids of honor. I just wanted everyone to look and feel like movie stars.
