Water’s Edge Vineyard Wedding

We are so lucky in Ohio to have so many beautiful wedding venues…and Water’s Edge in Louisville is definitely one of them.  The Great Hall and Ballroom are surrounded by the beautiful grounds that offer gorgeous vignettes all over the property.  Guests can choose to stroll through the vineyard, sit by the lake or enjoy the covered pavilion.  The Hall and Ballroom both provide a modern and simple backdrop that would compliment almost any wedding decor and colors.   And the best part (for me anyway) is the venue photographs beautifully!

Just to prove it to you….here are some of my favorites areas on the grounds and hall taken from Matt & Becka’s wedding.

Kelly & Terren’s Beautiful Stan Hywet and Backyard Wedding

I feel so lucky to have celebrated yet another special day, with another beautiful couple. Kelly and Terren held their wedding ceremony in the Rose Garden of Stan Hywet grounds on a warm and sunny day in Akron. The wedding was full of beauty, character, love for each other, and for Star Wars! The couple walked down the aisle to the theme song and the rings were carried by a Darth Vader pez dispenser. The day could have not been more perfect, as you can see from the pictures and smiles.

After capturing some precious moments, we traveled to Terren’s parent’s house for a fun backyard reception. The beautiful centerpieces and bouquets, of pink and gold, were made by the bride, Terren, and added such a special touch to the decor. The remainder of the day was filled with wonderful food, gorgeous scenery, and bright smiles. Family and friends shared smiles, laughter, dancing, and love, with the newlyweds. I am truly glad I got to be a part of and witness this very special day.

Congratulations Kelly & Terren!  I hope all your years together will be as happy as this day.

Bryan & Jen’s Family Session in the Studio

This family is very dear to me.  I have enjoyed being able to photograph so many of their milestones–Bryan & Jen’s wedding, their son as he’s grown and continues to grow, and now these adorable twins.  As I was looking through all the photos after the session, I kept catching myself grinning.  So much cuteness at one time!  I can’t believe how time flies and in just a few short years how this family has grown to what it is today.

The session was filled with balls bouncing, lots of giggling, a little crying, and lots and lots of love.  I have a feeling that is a small taste of their busy days everyday.  Bryan & Jen, thank you for sharing these moments and these sweet children.

 

Pretty Summer Wedding in Akron | Mike & Jerri

You may recall seeing Mike and Jerri’s photographs from their engagement session at Millcreek Park and Riverside Gardens.  It was hard to beat that beautiful day…but they succeeded!  The weather was amazing and their wedding was just as wonderful.  Jerri and Mike were married at St. Matthew’s Church in Akron.  We photographed their touching ceremony and then traveled to the beautiful Chenoweth Golf Course for the reception where the newlyweds and their guests celebrated and danced the night away.

Throughout the entire day, Jerri’s laugh was contagious!  She smiled and truly beamed at Mike and all of their family and friends.  You can see their happiness in their photos and I love it.  Mike & Jerri, I wish you both the best.  May you always be filled with the joy you felt that day!
