We need more winter weddings in this world. Initially, I could list a slew of phrases that make you know it’s a winter wedding, but I’ll save your sanity. Instead let’s dive right into Morgan and Mike’s Club at Hillbrook Wedding. Christmas theme with a cozy as efffffff vibe. Then, add in some reds, greens, a few “it’s a wonderful life sayings”, canadians, homemade beer, a boozy hot cocoa and cider bar, candle lit dinner spaces, a vinyl / record guest book, bottles of wine and pomegranates as table decor, and you have this evening. Also, I may or may not have been very very pregnant while captu ..read more

Ever wanted to attend a Stan Hywet Wedding ceremony? Envision this: you are surrounded by the most serene Fall foliage, stone backdrops, calming water ponds, and the mansion itself. You walk in, find your seat and a string quartet plays the most delightful, peaceful music. As the couple walks down the aisle, around a pond, you sit and wonder at this majestic sight. Almost as if it is straight from a romantic fairytale. My heart soared with this one friends. Anna and Dan combined their Stan Hywet wedding with a reception at the Akron Art Museum. I could embellish how it made me feel to watch on ..read more

If you ever wanted to have a wedding in Downtown Cleveland look no further than the Westin. Just to name a few reasons: there are the gorgeous ballrooms (that need little to no decor), the beautiful two story suites to get ready, plus the proximity to downtown Cleveland. You can’t beat it! Over my years of photographing wedding in multiple downtown cities, this one takes the cake. Read on for Mike and Erin’s Westin Cleveland Downtown wedding below! As if wedding weren’t full of emotion already, I grew up knowing Erin as the big sister to my best friend. Over the years, I heard about her accomp ..read more

Hilton Fairlawn Wedding, Ohio | Lexi & Nick

To me, hotel weddings are the equivalent to a blank canvas. You can take any ballroom and splash all the fun to make it your own. Lexi and Nick’s Hilton Fairlawn Wedding did just that. They took this big empty space and filled it full of gold, white and purple accents. Their florals had hints of deep Fall violets and those wild greens that make my heart soar. (Definitely helps that Lexi’s mom is one of the top florists here in Akron. Check out Pink Petals – She even made my own wedding bouquets!). Nevertheless – it was the perfect way to take a blank slate and hit it out of the park! Lexi and ..read more

Lake Club Wedding, Poland, Ohio | Toni & Creighton

Idyllic defines Toni and Creighton’s Lake Club Wedding to a tee. September weddings bring in a fall breeze which cannot be replicated any other time of year. The magical summer sun still hangs around. And by evening you feel the winds changing to crisp and cool. It reminds me of a Mary Poppins wind, as if mother nature is intending to show off at it’s flexibility in the Midwest. But the word idyllic cannot just be about weather. Combine this day with a church straight out of European architecture, a backyard vineyard and pizza oven, a vast lake with manicured lawns, gold, pale pink, and green ..read more

Lakewood Country Club Wedding, Lakewood, OH | Nikki & Kevin

First and foremost, Nikki and Kevin’s Lakewood Country Club wedding transported everyone to the beautiful Italian coast. Italy is one of my favorite countries to visit! My family is from a small town by the heel of the boot, and I studied abroad there during college, taking multiple Italian courses. I still dream about the people, cobblestone streets, and the food! To walk into their wedding day felt as if I walked to Positano. Their florist incorporated real fruit into all of their centerpieces. Yes you read that correctly: real fruit, specifically lemons. Then add in a few brilliant Spode Bl ..read more

Nickajack Farms Wedding, Ohio | Andrea & Eric

Summer celebrations, mid-July, are the epitome of wedding season. There is something about the sunshine and the excitement that just hits a tad differently than a cozy winter wedding or a brisk fall soiree. Tie in a root beer stand, farm animals, and the most beautiful purple sunset Ohio has ever seen, and you have this Nickajack Farms Wedding with Andrea and Eric! First of all, I know you think I’m joking, but I’m not. In the heart of Canton is Woody’s Root Beer Stand! Typically when the distance from the ceremony to the reception is a long one I highly suggest a few stops to divvy up your bu ..read more

Country Club Wedding, Fairlawn, Ohio | Katie & Ryan

Even though this post is titled a Country Club Wedding in Fairlawn, so much happened before we even made it to the reception. Firstly, Katie and Ryan tied the knot in the middle of July. Their traditional wedding day didn’t stop them from scheduling a first look! And yes, it took place where Katie played hide and go seek as a child First looks give so many of my couples a sense of calm on their wedding day. It’s one large reason I love them. I fully respect those that chose not to have one. I will say though, for those of us (yes I lump myself into this group) that need a little anxiety reduc ..read more

Friday weddings should receive a bit more of the spotlight in the wedding circuit. Just because it happens on a day of the week doesn’t mean it’s any less full of energy and love. Take this Portage Country Club Wedding for example. It took place on a Friday afternoon. Erin and Elliot had a Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception (all the same Saturday wedding routine) all still insanely filled with love. Then guess what? They had Saturday AND Sunday to recover. Genius? Absolutely. This summer wedding held nothing back. They had passed-down handkerchiefs and bowties, heartfelt speeches that could ..read more
