I was super excited that Charlie and Sherilyn were having preparations for their wedding day at the Bertram Inn in Aurora, Ohio. Its a fantastic facility that really knows how to help a bride and groom have a great day.
Bertram Inn Suites
Charlie and his groomsmen, which consisted of his son’s Noah and Easton, and Sherilyn’s son, Drake, prepared for the day in a suite. The suites are attached to the conference rooms and ballroom at the Bertram. This enabled them to eliminate any logistical challenges when the day started. I really love how Sherilyn and Charlie incorporated the whole family. This make their pictures even more intimate and special.
Cottage at The Bertram
Sherilyn had her own cottage to prep for the wedding. This is an awesome benefit of getting ready for your wedding at the Bertram. The bride and bridesmaids always need more room so having an entire cottage is super convenient for them. After everyone was ready, and after just a couple for creative pictures of Sherilyn, we did some photos with each bridesmaid (Gabrielle, Charlie’s daughter, Livia, Sherilyn’s niece and Sadie, Sherilyn’s daughter). Again, incorporating the immediate family in the bridal party is so awesome.
It was then on to their wedding ceremony and reception at the Thorncreek winery. Here are just a few favorites from the start of Charlie and Sherilyn’s wedding day at the Bertram Inn.
