Burton, Ohio Wedding: Tim + Kayla

 

I don’t think I even have the write words to describe this couple and do them justice.  Each time I’ve been around them, I’ve been completely at ease.  They are so lovely together. There is something about their love that is simply peaceful.  Besides being incredibly laid-back and down-to-earth, they are generous and incredibly kind.  It was such a joy to be a part of their day and to be surrounded by so many of their wonderful family and friends.  Tim and Kayla, I wish you all the best in your life together.  Congratulations! ~Jen

Stow Ohio Wedding: Jeremy + Michelle

 

He started saving for the Michelle Esterle fund.  His sister invited friends over to their house for a party and after meeting Michelle that night, he knew he wanted to take her on a date, so he started saving up.  Jeremy and his sister had a deal that they would not date each other’s friends, but years later when he and Michelle reconnected, I think his sister was pretty excited to be bringing a friend into the family and to now call her sister.

They had a beautiful day, surrounded by family and friends and declared their vows to one another at Christ Community Chapel-Stow campus.  Then they were off to Guys Party Center in Akron for their reception, with a little stop at Firestone Metro Park for a photo-op beforehand.  Jeremy and Michelle, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your fun celebration and share in your love story:)  Contrats!  ~ Jen

Wadsworth, Ohio Wedding: Bethany+Nate

This was the first time I have cried at a wedding I shot professionally.  The music was beautiful and when those doors to the sanctuary opened up to the bride and her father…well, I got choked up!  And turning around to see the beaming and tearful groom witnessing his bride for the first time did not help me one bit.  So many stories were shared about this couple and I felt like I knew their story so well when I was finished that day.  Bethany and Nate are beautiful people inside and out and I have no doubt that together they will be amazing.  I wish them all the best in this lifetime together:)

St. John Vianney Wedding (Mentor, Ohio): Michael+Kimberly

From getting her hair done, to the father-daughter dance, this bride was full of emotions and taking in every moment of her wedding day.  Every detail was in place and the day was just stunning.  It was really fun to watch Mike and Kim’s wedding day jitters melt away after they said, “I do.”  They definitely make each other happy and as we moved onto pictures and then into the reception, they were able to completely relax and enjoy their celebration with family friends.  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Shannon!

Hudson, Ohio Wedding: Jonathan+Alyssa

Somehow a month flew by since Alyssa and Jonathan got married, so I figured it was finally time to blog their wedding photos.  They were one of the cutest couple’s ever.  During the reveal time, their smiles were contagious and it was so fun to watch the joy they shared.  Such a fun day!  If they are any bit as happy as they were on their wedding day, then they are off to a great start.  Congratulations, Jonathan and Alyssa!  (And happy 1-month anniversary too;)

Alliance, Ohio Wedding: Charlie and Molly

A couple weekends ago I had the priviledge of photographing Charlie and Molly’s wedding. Everything was low key and simple and it was a refreshing change of pace from weddings these days.  Charlie and Molly are already a pretty laid-back couple, but I was still blown away by how incredibly calm they were.  They kept the focus on the most important thing – eachother.  The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was intimate.  Congratulations to the new couple and thank you for allowing me to capture some unforgettable memories for you as you start your life together.

Blossom Hill Farm Wedding: Michael+Lindsay

The morning of the wedding the forecast was not looking very pleasant.  It rained off and on for quite awhile, but not long after we arrived to Blossom Hill Farm, the rain let up and things were looking good.  Mike and Lindsay were as calm as could be.  It was obvious they were ready to get married and were going to enjoy whatever the day may bring.  Despite a house full of people rushing around getting ready, the whole day had a very peaceful feeling to it and I would attribute that to the amazing couple.  

The setting was beautiful with rolling hills, apple trees, and cattle roaming in the distance.  In fact, the whole day was just beautiful and I have had such a hard time narrowing down my favorite pictures, so be prepared for a bunch!
