Alison and Bryan met at Ashland university. They spent their first date sitting on a bench talking all night in the beautiful park-like setting. They wanted to meet for the first time on their wedding day and spend some time walking around campus before the ceremony. We met at the bench where they had their fist date and they exchanged gifts and Bryan gave Alison a necklace that complemented her gown perfectly. After the ceremony they walked through their crowd of friends and managed not to get burned by all the flaming sparklers! The reception was in the campus convocation center.

Saturday turned out to be another perfect day for a wedding. The trees were in prime color and the temperature was comfortable. Seth and Valerie met at Princeton where they both attend. The day was really cool because we celebrated two ceremonies. The first ceremony was at Immaculate Conception in Ravenna and the Jewish ceremony was at NEOUCOM medical college in Rootstown. The reception was in the main ballroom which was decorated beautifully and had really romantic accent lighting.

I am way behind on my postings! The leaves have been beautiful and it seems like everyone wants their photographs in the fall leaves so I have been super busy. Marsha and Gary were married on the 11th at St. Matthews church. It was great to work with the Holcomb family again as I had photographed Gary's brothers wedding a few years ago. It's always nice to see familiar-friendly faces. After the wedding we stopped at a park and then stopped by their house to capture a few images of them in their "new" Belvedere convertible.
The reception hall was decorated beautifully and since they were engaged at a lighthouse, the decorations reflected that theme. They even had a ice sculpture that looked just like it!

Jen and Scott were married Saturday and had the reception at St. Georges Fellowship Centre in Fairlawn. Their first dance was a samba and they looked fantastic! It ended with a low dip and a kiss and cheers from the large crowd. St. Georges is a great place for a party as the family run business makes their lasagna from scratch and it was tasty! The long walkway down the side of the building has a row of arches that makes a great spot for photographs. We went out to the arches right before sunset and later when it was completely dark and created some really cool images!

It was a another great weekend for weddings! The weather cleared up and turned out beautiful. Friday night Brittany and Craig were married at NEOUCOM medical college in Rootstown. Since the ground was still wet and it was a little chilly the ceremony was held in the atrium. Their first dance started out with some traditional music and then they started a "dance revolution" that included about every dance craze that I have seen over the last 20 years. It ended with a dip and a kiss and rousing applause from all the guests! They really cut loose with some moves and you could tell they were having a great time. They were very playful and a lot of fun to work with!
