Summer Rooftop Wedding at Hensville in Downtown Toledo

We’ve got another memorable weekend of weddings in the books! Last week, we had the opportunity to be a part of two fun, unique, beautiful and sweet weddings. Our weekend started with Jessica & Eric at the Top of Nine at Hensville!

Right from the beginning, we couldn't help but notice a certain energy in Jessica and Eric. A contagious excitement, joy and love they have for not only each other, but for the people around them. Jessica's maid of honor said it right when, in describing Jessica, she said,”Jessica taught me how to be excited".

There was no hiding the enthusiasm the first time we met with them. That energy continued on every time we talked about their unique engagement session on the ice at The Huntington Center, their soft pastel color scheme, the vision for the wedding day and the stunning cathedral veil. They're the kind of couple you want to be around, with contagious smiles that shine through their eyes and their genuine excitement for just about anything. 

The wedding day reflected just about every emotion you could imagine. Jessica adorably trying to contain her excitement at the Park Inn while patiently waiting to get into her dress. The inevitable tears overflowing as Jessica stepped into her dress and reality set in. Her dad joining in with the overflow of emotions as he saw his daughter for the first time. 

The day continued with fun and excitement as the bridal party explored downtown Toledo. The summer sun shining down on the rooftop of Nine at Hensville as guests took their seats awaiting the sweet ceremony and anticipating what was sure to be a fun celebration. 

After the vows, we made our way inside to our tables named for different locations that Jessica & Eric spend their time. We love fun little details like these that truly reflect who our couples are! Following dinner, Jessica & Eric showed off their moves with a beautifully choreographed performance to a song from La La Land. It is clear that Jessica’s years of dance have rubbed off on Eric! 

Thankfully, the dancing didn’t stop there. It was a night of twists, shakes and even some Beyonce-level moves! 

Another amazing night of watching the sun set on this beautiful city :)
