University of Akron Wedding with Chelsea and Adam

Summer wedding portrait at Infocsion Stadium at the University of Akron.

Last June I met back up with Chelsea and Adam on a sunny day in Akron. Thankfully their wedding day was a lot warmer than their engagement session!

I always love when my couples are able to incorporate their love story into their wedding day. Chelsea and Adam met at InfoCision Stadium at the University of Akron so it was a perfect spot to celebrate their wedding! I love how it tied it all together.

I don’t know that I’ve ever had a groom smile as much as Adam did every time he saw Chelsea. I DO know that I’ve NEVER had a Groom and his Dad breakdance at the reception together. That was an amazing first and I hope not the last!

Thank you both so much for trusting me with your wedding day!

I started out with Chelsea and her ladies at the beautiful new Courtyard by Marriott in Downtown Akron. I hadn’t been to the hotel yet and was wowed by how pretty it is! Highly recommend it for those looking for a place to stay/get ready for their wedding when in Akron!

I am in love with these beautiful pew decorations that Pink Petals Florist made for their wedding ceremony to decorate the pews. The vases are SO neat!

Where else would you go with a bunch of football players? I’m so glad we were able to utilize the field at InfoCision Stadium at the University of Akron!

Gotta have the “walk and talk” with the guys. I have a feeling they’ve done this a few times on this field.

I don’t know what it is about these two photos but they are some of my favorites from the day. I love both this color and the black and white of it.

I also need to give a shout out to the amazing florist, Pink Petals. They did a beautiful job with all of the flowers, especially on Chelsea’s gorgeous rose and peony bouquet!

The cake cutting was a wee bit messy!
After Chelsea cleaned up from the cake cutting they had their first dance at their wedding reception at InfoCision Stadium.
