I said it before and I'll say it again: Congratulations John & Kelsey!




What a great day we had at Chandler Hill Vineyards! Kelsey and her bridesmaids stayed at a nearby hotel the night before, hair and make-up were done at the hotel. Kelsey arrived at Chandler Hill shortly after and got into her dress and jewelry in the gorgeous bridal suite on site. .



John and the groomsmen got into their attire on site in the grooms suite as well.





The wedding went off without a hitch, partly in thanks to the amazing coordinator Megan at Chandler Hill for keeping everything running smoothly! She is one of the best wedding coordinators in Defiance.




The reception was gorgeous! Everyone loved the food catered by Chandler Hill. The desert bar was amazing and adorable!!




John and Kelsey danced their first dance to Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran,




The whole day was amazing. Join me in wishing John & Kelsey many happy years together.

Without further adieu, Mr. and Mrs. McCutchen!
