Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens Wedding with Jennifer and Aaron

Last May I met back up with Jennifer and Aaron at the beautiful Stan Hwyet Hall and Gardens for their wedding in Akron.  It was a beautiful day – perfect for an outdoor ceremony at the Tea Houses.

Jennifer and Aaron were such a dream to work with – super easy going and just full of smiles and love after their ceremony!  The day could not have been any more perfect and we were able to bop around Stan Hywet after the ceremony for lots of photos before heading out to Guy’s Party Center for their celebration.  Their family and friends were so excited to celebrate their wedding and the dance floor was packed thanks to One T!  It was a great night!  Thank you both for trusting me to capture your day.

Special shout out to their wonderful families who were so lovely to work with!

I started with the ladies who got ready at the carriage house at Stan Hywet.

Jennifer’s dress was GORGEOUS and I’m still obsessed with the straps which criss-crossed across the back.

Before we knew it it was time to walk down the aisle!  Aaron was anxiously awaiting his bride.

If you’ve ever been to Stan Hywet in May you may know just how busy it is.  There were multiple weddings, proms and regular visitors everywhere but these two were super easy going about trying to get photos where we could while making it seem it wasn’t so busy.

How amazing is this cake??  I loved all of the floral details from the wedding and Jennifer’s AMAZING Mom did it all!  Isn’t she so talented?!

The wine theme at the reception was perfect and so beautiful.

At the head table they had two wine barrels for the bridesmaids bouquets and I really loved the look vs. the usual vase for the bouquets.  SO pretty!

The guys were a hoot, every time I looked over they were up to no good.  LOL

Eventually it was time for toasts and they started out with a lot of giggles.

There were lots of giggles during the garter removal.

Everyone has their own method of madness for what happens after the garter and bouquet have been caught.  One T Entertainment had a new twist on things by switching out a groomsman for the lady who caught the bouquet and it was HILARIOUS.

Once the formalities were over with the dance floor opened and it was PACKED!!

When the bride and groom get on the floor for “Shout” you know it’s a good party (and a great couple)!

Of course I had to play with the grapes and the rings before leaving!
