Nikole and Jon

I had fun working with Nikole's family and it was great to be with Jon's family again as I had photographed both his sisters weddings years ago. The church was Trinity Lutheran in Kent where Nikole had a beautiful cloth aisle runner with their names and dates painted on it. They are a very family oriented couple and you could tell they loved sharing the day with all their close family and friends!

St. Haralambo's Hall Canton

Ashley and Joe were married Saturday at Little Flower Catholic church in Canton. It rained all morning and all during the ceremony but when it came time to walk out through some bubbles, the rained stopped! It stayed clear long enough to spend some time with them and their bridal party at the park. The reception was at St. Haralambo's hall. The hall was decorated beautifully with some curtains and nice accent lighting that made great backgrounds. The band "Jimmy and the Soulblazers" provided he entertainment for the evening. Joe's father played guitar in the band and that made the music even more special.

Spring Lake Party Center

There must have been a lot of people praying Friday about the weather for Jenifer and Fernando's wedding because it rained all morning then cleared up for the wedding and then started raining again as they lined up to be introduced at the reception. They were married at Spring Lake Party center at the gazebo right in front of the lake. It is a beautiful spot for a wedding and it's nice because everything is right there. Since it was a Friday wedding they wanted to do most of the photography before the wedding so they could spend the rest of the time with their guests.

Roses Run Country Club

What a great ending to the summer wedding season! Michael and Victoria were so great to work with. The weather was perfect and they picked a great location for an outdoor wedding. The ceremony was at the Hines Hills Conference Center in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It is a beautiful place with an old stone cottage, a pond, and several other buildings. Victoria was very emotional before and during the wedding. You could just see how much this day meant to her just by looking in her eyes. When Michael wiped away her tears during the ceremony I knew it was going to be a great day! The reception was at Roses Run Country Club where they partied and danced with all their closest friends.

Occasions Party Center

Saturday's wedding turned out to be another great one! Laura and Dean were a very sweet couple and Dean really impressed me when he told me this was the proudest day of his life that he could do all of this for Laura! We started the day at the salon where Laura's mother did all the girls hair. Their ceremony was at the Hartville Brethren Church and the reception was at Occasions Party Center. We were able to sneak out right after dinner and have some fun in the fading glow of the late summer sun.
