Kara & Chris | Varian Orchards East Canton Ohio

Kara and Chris are two of the sweetest, cutest and adoring people I've ever met. This is going to a looong blog post because I wanted to share every. single. image. from their whole wedding!  It was a breath taking day. Varian Orchards is always a favorite venue to work at. 

Kara and Chris opted for a first look, but they also decided to read each other their vows before the ceremony and OMG! one of the most sentimental and gorgeous things I've ever witnessed. They also took dirt from both of their homesteads and combined them in the foundation for a small tree that will represent them becoming one... such a neat idea. 

Instead of a cake they had donuts from Peace Love and Little Donuts (if you haven't have them, you need to!!) the guest were practically drooling waiting for them, the aroma in the tent was over whelming, so so good! Enjoy this over share from this perfect day!

Jennifer & David | Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens

Jennifer and David had their wedding at the gorgeous Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens in Akron. This was my first wedding at Stan Hywet and it didn't disappoint. It was absolutely stunning! Jennifer and David had a early wedding and no reception so the day was short and sweet. With a small wedding party and only close family and friends it was intimate and romantic in every way. From her wedding dress that was not only fit for a princess but it also had pockets! to the string quartet that played while she walked down the aisle. The whole day was amazing. 

The small touched of insane quirkiness they both added to the day was my favorite part. The guys being big Star Wars fans had cuff links, and socks devoted to the light and the dark side. And Jen has one of the biggest personalities of anyone I've ever met! she is loud, insane, adorable and just plain awesome! 

Hayley & Mark | Snodes Barn

When I photographed Hayley and Mark at their engagement session I was blown away at how easy and how well they photographed. It was very easy to tell just how much Mark adored Hayley and she has one of those smiles that make you smile too. She has a very bubbly personality and I knew their wedding was going to be soo much fun! 

They had their ceremony and reception at Snodes Barn in Minerva, Hayley added so many details that added to the country feel, Their ring box especially was very cute and very them. Probably one of my favorite parts of the night was when both when Hayley danced with her father while a slideshow played showing photos of her and her dad and when Mark danced with his mother who has trouble standing un assisted. There was no dry eye in the house during the parent dances <3 

Enjoy some highlights from Hayley and Mark's big day and make sure to leave them some love at the bottom!

Kaele contacted me a week before their wedding. They had a date picked out in the spring but decided they couldn't wait so they bumped it up to the weekend they I happen to have that date open so <3 They had a small ceremony with only close friends and family including a family member who Skyped in from hundreds of miles away :) One of my favorites this year it was simple and stunning.... 

Megan & Andrew at Peacock Ridge | Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Megan and Andrew had a fairy tale wedding in every sense of the word. Megan's dress would have made Cinderella's jaw drop, their vows left no dry eyes and their first dance was a waltz! The wedding party clearly adored the couple greatly and their speeches were some of the most heartfelt ones I've ever heard.  Enjoy some favorits from this wedding to remember <3

Anyssa and Dylan at Country Cottage and Gardens | Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Anyssa and Dylan have been one of those couples I have become super attached to. I have been photographing them since Anyssa was pregnant <3 Their wedding day has been one I was looking forward to for a long long time. The weather had us ALL on our toes it would pour one second then the sun would come out the next. At one point we thought we would have to adjust the ceremony time! But right before the ceremony the sun came out and the rest of the day went perfect. I enjoyed all the time they put into their details and the bridal party was super fun to work with. Enjoy an over share of images from their special day :) <3

The George Family | Northeast Ohio Family Photographer

The George family <3 I love these four! They started as clients and have become great friends! Aaron even spent the night at my house for my little ones birthday. I don't know what I would do with out this family in my life. They are always a blast to work with and they were troopers on this freezing morning. Their was minimal bitching about how cold they were lol <3
