Gervasi Vineyard Conservatory Wedding with Molina and Shawn

Gervasi Vineyard Wedding in June

Since the pandemic I’ve picked up more and more of the small intimate weddings at Gervasi Vineyard and I just loooove them.  I had photographed a few before 2020 but with the uncertainty of everything more people have decided to have smaller weddings and Gervasi has a wonderful setup for a small wedding.  I do partially love working here because it’s nice to be home in a few minutes – it’s a wonderful perk!  However, I just really love working here, it’s just so pretty.  The setting inside the conservatory is just picture perfect (of course, the grounds are too)!  I’ve been there in all seasons and times of day and it’s never not beautiful.  It’s by far the best option in Stark County if you’re looking to have a small intimate wedding.

I love white/off-white dresses but give me a dress in any shade that isn’t white adjacent and I simply swoon.  Molina’s dress was SO swoon worthy.  A year later and I’m still looking at it with heart eyes.  I loved Molina’s baby’s breath bouquet too – it just set everything off perfectly.

It’s always fun when a wedding brings me a six degrees of Kevin Bacon moment and this wedding did!  Before the wedding Shawn’s Dad asked where I was from and I told him.  Turns out he grew up near our house and was good friends with my Aunt and spent many hours hanging out in our basement as it was the kids hangout in the neighborhood!  Small world!

Congratulations to you both!

Peacock Ridge Wedding with Lori and Bill

Summer wedding at Peacock Ridge

On a sunny and bright June afternoon I met up with Lori and Bill at Peacock Ridge in North Lawrence, OH for their wedding.  I hadn’t been here before so I was pretty excited to work here and it did not disappoint!  I looooved the soft pinks and purples that Lori chose for her colors.  The bridesmaid dresses were so romantic!

The ceremony area that Peacock Ridge has set up is so pretty – I love the flowers around the lake and arch.  The sun was a bit brutal but luckily it was a short ceremony!  The peacocks made sure to cry a few times at just the right moment to make sure everyone knew why this was called Peacock Ridge!

Thank you both for trusting me to document your wedding day – congratulations

Wilkshire Banquet Center with Amanda and Matt

wilkshire banquet wedding

I had never been to Wilkshire Banquet Center but it’s a cute little gem of a venue in Bolivar right off I77.  Amanda and Matt said I Do outside in their ceremony space and then continued over to their interior space for their wedding reception.  It was a scorching hot day so everyone was thankful for the shade in the ceremony space.

Someone forgot the rings in the car so that was a fun little interlude during the ceremony that made everyone stop the happy tears and laugh.  The reception continued with the same method of smiles and happy tears.  We all cracked up when one of Matthew’s friends filled in as the bride for the garter removal!

Congratulations to you both!
