Cleveland Art Museum Engagement Session with Jessica and John

Whew!  I made it to this engagement session!!!  Why am I so excited? Because these two are saying I Do tomorrow and I wanted to get it up beforehand!

On what may be one of the most glorious days we had last October, I met up with Jessica and John outside the Cleveland Art Museum for their engagement session.  They brought a change of clothes and I love how they went from dressy to SUPER casual.  Both looks were fantastic on them and I love how in the casual look they were really able to snuggle a bit.

I’m super excited to be working with them both tomorrow – make sure to keep an eye on Instagram!  Not only will I be posting their sneak peeks but maybe some stories from the day!

See you guys tomorrow!

Stan Hywet Wedding with Brooke and Chase

Summer Wedding at Stan Hywet in Akron

Holy cow, I accidentally skipped a wedding when trying to get this blog back up to (somewhat) date!  I don’t know how I skipped the gorgeous wedding of Brooke and Chase but I did.  They are skipped no longer!!

Brooke and Chase got married at the lovely Tea Houses at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens.  If you don’t already know, this spot includes one of my favorite aisles in the world (well, that I’ve photographed anyway) with the Birch Tree Allée.  It’s one of their most popular spots for a reason and I always do a happy dance when I’ve booked a wedding here.  This is a gorgeous venue no matter what the weather (and I’ve shot here in almost all of it!) but Brooke and Chase lucked out and got a gorgeous day with not a drop of rain.

Brooke has the best smile ever.  It lights up the room whenever she walks in and the amps are just turned up whenever she sees Chase.  They were such a fun couple to work with because their hearts are always on their sleeves – which I already knew from their fun engagement session that previous February.  Even when there was a bit of a disaster on their wedding day with the transportation’s bus breaking down, Brooke just shrugged it off, got some alternative transportation and headed to Stan Hywet without a tear.

Thank you both so much for trusting me to photograph your day!  It was a joy working with you both.

Springlake Party Center Wedding with Angela and Frank

Springlake Party Center Wedding

You may remember this couple from their ADORABLE engagement session with their sweet dog at the Canton Garden Center.  If you can’t guess, I was super excited to work with them again after the fun we had during the engagement session.

I was also excited to return to Springlake Party Center for another wedding.  It had been a while since I had been there before.  If you want a spectacular place for sunsets, definitely look into this venue for your wedding!  Also, their food is amaaaazing.  Every time I’ve been here I’ve been blown away.  It’s definitely a hidden gem!

Now onto Angela and Frank.  What a fun couple they were!!!!  Angela is all about the sparkle and Frank is all about anything that brings the sparkle to Angela’s eyes.  The grins were massive all day long!  I loved how when they saw each other during the ceremony you could almost hear the click of their becoming one and all being right in the world.  Through the whole day they would seek each others eyes and even if they weren’t together, they weren’t ever apart from one another’s mind.

Thank you both for trusting me with your wedding day!  It was a joy to work with you both!

PS: For you leaf peepers – their wedding date was September 30th.  Everyone’s always asking me for dates of leaves that start to change in photos so I wanted to put this here in case anyone in the future searches out “when do leaves start to change in Ohio” for their wedding date choice!
