We recently photographed the Courtyard Marriott wedding of Doc Norton and Diane Zajac. Married on July 5th, 2019 at the Courtyard by Marriott Erie Bayfront hotel, the wedding was an intimate event that marked a new beginning for two families.
A Beautifully Blended Family
Doc and Diane’s wedding was the second wedding for each of them. Because this marriage means they join their two families into one, they celebrated their new union with their closest family and friends.
Doc and Diane’s wedding was simple, elegant, and full of special moments that I was fortunate to capture.
The Courtyard Marriott Wedding
Doc and Diane held their wedding in the Niagara Room at the Courtyard Marriott . Since the Courtyard by Marriott sits on the Sassafras Pier, the waters of Presque Isle Bay and soft morning light provided a stunning backdrop for the ceremony.
After the wedding, Doc and Diane celebrated by enjoying a delicious brunch with their friends and family.
Early Morning Bridal Portraits
It is not often I get the opportunity to shoot a wedding in the morning. Because of that, we were able to take advantage of cooler temperatures and take the bridal portraits outdoors.
We took a lot of photos outside, on the bayfront. It was the perfect morning for bridal portraits; the cool air and sparkling bay added to the beauty of the day. Then, we took some photos at the Bayfront Convention Center, another venue that offered breathtaking views. During our time there, we found an alcove to photograph that perfectly framed Doc and Diane, with the historic Bicentennial Tower in the background.
It was fun getting to know Doc and Diane better while we explored the different areas around their Courtyard Marriott wedding. The multiple locations allowed me to showcase their personalities, as well as the genuine love they share.
Doc and Diane’s love is a testament to what it truly means to be a family. We enjoyed capturing the simplicity and intimacy of the special day.
