Seiberling Naturealm

Stash and Lisa have traveled extensively and wanted their wedding day to reflect some of that. Instead of the unity candle they poured sand from their travels from two containers into one. At the reception, each table was named for a different country and had a photograph of them on it. The wedding favors were bottle openers from Orval Abbey in Belgium and corkscrews made by the monks at the Moselle vineyard. These two loved to dance and spent the entire evening on the dance floor with all their close friends and family.

Akron City Centre Hotel

Kelley and Barney met at a softball game at Harrington field in Cuyahoga Falls and have been together ever since! After their ceremony we went to the ballfield for some photographs of the place where it all began for them. They held the reception at the Radisson in Akron where all their close friends helped them celebrate. After a few hilarious toasts the party got under way. All the big windows overlooking downtown allowed me to create the first dance and cake cutting photographs in natural light.

North Canton Civic Center

Friday the 13th turned out to be Jennifer and Todd's lucky day! They were married in a candlelit ceremony Friday night at Christ United Methodist Church in Louisville. After the ceremony they made their way through a gauntlet of friends and were pelted with huge amounts of rose petals. The reception was at the North Canton Civic Center and we were lucky to have just enough time to take some photographs of them and the party outside right before a big thunderstorm hit. A couple of their friends that I had photographed over the last couple of years were there and it was great to see them again!

Firestone Country Club

Another beautiful day for a wedding! Although it was a little warm the weather was great this past weekend. We started at Sheri's house and her nieces and nephew were there as they were part of the wedding party. They were so cute and cooperative and made my day even more interesting. We continued on to Saint Mary's in Massillon. I love the old Catholic Churches with the fantastic architecture and old stone work. The high ceilings and pillars make dramatic images. After a ride in a huge Hummer with convertible seating in the back we made it to Firestone Country Club. The room was completely decorated in their colors and it looked awesome!

Natatorium in Cuyahoga Falls

I had photographed Heidi as a bridesmaid in two of her friends weddings and now it's her turn! It was great to see Kelly and Katie again and all their friends. Someone said I was like part of the family now and that really meant a lot to me. Thank you for that! Jon and Heidi were married in Trinity Church in Springfield and had the reception at the Natatorium in Cuyahoga Falls. They had a 1937 Rolls Royce to chauffeur them around in and we stopped at the Riverfront Park for some photographs.
