Silver Lake Country Club in Stow Ohio

Saturday night we just missed the rain at Silver Lake country Club and were able to capture some great images of Leslie and James. The reception hall was well lit by a wall of windows so I was able to photograph the first dances with just available light. I enjoyed seeing the range of emotions from Leslie and her father as they walked down the aisle and on the father daughter dance. I know she will be missed after she moves to Atlanta. Her sisters toast and her sorority sister's dance really got the tears flowing!

St. George Greek Orthodox Church

Saturday I had the pleasure of working in a very beautiful and ornate church, St. George Greek Orthodox Church. Cara and Nick are very involved in their church so the ceremony meant a lot to them and it included some very unique traditions. The church photographs very well and the priest allowed me very close to the altar so I was able to capture everything as it happened. The reception was very lively and had many traditional dances that got everyone involved. It was a great chance for families from all over to come together.

St. Bernards and Guys Party Center in Akron Ohio

Friday night Megan and Brandon were married in St. Bernard's Cathedral in Akron and I had the pleasure of capturing the whirl of emotions surrounding the day. The church is a pleasure to work in and the families and friends were fun too. After the ceremony we went to Buchtel fountains and then on to Guys Party Center for some food and fun.

Spring Lake Party Center Lakemore Ohio

Spring Lake Party Center was the perfect location for Sarah and Neal's wedding Saturday Evening. The gazebo and lake made a beautiful background for an outdoor wedding. I was capturing images of the ceremony from behind a purple bush to create depth and drama when a butterfly landed right in front of me! It made a great image and a lasting memory for them. Shortly after the ceremony the party started inside and continued into the night. A beautiful sunset finished the night for me!

Guys Party Center Akron Ohio

Friday's wedding with Andrea and Dave went perfectly. We started at Salon Kisha and watched as Andrea became a radiant bride to be!
After picking up the dress at Andrea's parents house we stopped at Rockne's for lunch with all the bridesmaids. The ceremony was beautiful and they had the longest line of guests throwing rose petals I've ever seen. Afterwards we went to Buchtel Fountains for some fun and got some great images of them and their party. The reception hall at Guys Party Center was packed with all their friends and family and they danced the night away!

St. Matthews Ellet Ohio

Last Saturday was beautiful but really hot and humid....especially if you were in a wedding gown! Rachael and David got married Saturday and fortunately no one passed out or melted from the weather. They had a beautiful ceremony at St. Matthews in Ellet. Rachael's mother made the pew decorations which included hanging lanterns that looked amazing! The decorations she made for the tables at Occasions were so nice, another bride from an upcoming wedding wanted to buy them for her wedding.
I get to spend this weekend with my family again so we'll see you in two weeks!
