We started a beautiful Friday wedding with Richard and Noelle at the villas at Gervasi Vineyard. After everyone was ready, it was time for a gorgeous ceremony at St. Peter's Church in Canton. Once the bride and groom had tied the knot, it was back to Gervassi for photos in the vineyard and also along the lake. Gervassi has to be one of the most beautiful locations for wedding photography in our area, and it didn't dissappoint! The pavilion on the lake was gorgeous, with everyone have a blast into the evening. Thanks to Richard and Noelle for having us as their wedding photographers!
Becky and Jenn chose the Exploration Gateway at Sippo Lake for their summer wedding, and it's an awesome location! Sippo Lake creates a beautiful backdrop, and the staircase made for quite a grand entrance. After the ceremony, we took advantage of the grounds around the park for portraits. Once we wrapped up the portraits, it was time to move inside for the party. It's always fun to see how happy our couples are on their wedidng day, but these two ladies kicked it up a notch! Congratulations and thank you for having us as your wedding photographers.
Drew and Brittany's Lakewood United Methodist, Columbia Ballroom Wedding | Cleveland Wedding Photographer
It was a perfect Friday for a Cleveland wedding. We started the day at Lakewood United Methodist church with the ladies getting ready. After some beautiful photos of the wedding dress, it was time for the wedding ceremony. The church is a gorgeous Cleveland Wedding location. We even shot a photo of all of the guests who attended the wedding! From there, it was off to the Cultural Gardens in University Circle (another Cleveland Wedding classic) for portraits of the bride and groom with the wedding party. It's one of our favorite Cleveland wedding photography locations, and it didn't disappoint. Once the portraits were finished, it was time for the party at the Columbia Ballroom. We even managed to time up some sunset photos perfectly. Thanks so much to Drew and Brittany for having us as their wedding photographers!
We spent the most beautiful day with Dan and Sarah this week and couldn't get enough of the views at Allardale Lodge! Our day started with the bride and her ladies getting ready at her parent's house. From there, we headed out to Allardale Lodge. The ceremony took place at the top of a hill with one of the best views I can think of for an Akron Wedding. Once these two were hitched, we took advantage of the grounds around the lodge for some awesome wedding photography. There are so many great spots, and the sunset was perfect. After the portraits, it was time to head inside for the wedding reception. Everyone had a blast, including these two akron wedding photographers. Congratulations and thank you for having us as your wedding photographers!
We had another great wedding Saturday at a few of our favorite Akron Wedding venues. We started the day at First United Methodist Church in Cuyahoga Falls with the ladies getting ready. The parlor is a wonderful place for photographs! Once all the finishing touches were put on, we headed to the sanctuary for the wedding ceremony. After the I Do's it was time for the wedding photography. We absolutely love the third floor of Greystone Hall as a location for wedding portraits, it's so classic! Something New Entertainment really got the party going, with all of the guests partying into the night. Thanks so much to one of the nicest couples for having us as your wedding photographers!
We had an awesome Memorial Day weekend, and hope everyone else had fun spending time with family. Before we got to the grill and parades, we had a fantastic day photographing Jake and Kristin's Akron Wedding. The ladies got ready at Greystone Hall (Greystone is one of our favorite Akron Wedding locations, hit the link to check it out), before Jake and Kristin did their first look in the parlor. After some portraits at the hall, we walked up the street to Zion Lutheran Church for the ceremony. It's such a classic church, the photos look beautiful. After a few quick photos outside (it was hot!), it was back to Greystone for the reception. Beach Boyz DJ service kept the dance floor rocking into the night! Thanks so much to a really fun Bride and Groom for having us as their wedding photographers!

The rain held off for us this past Saturday and we had a great day photographing Scott and Marla's wedding. The wedding ceremony was at the Chapel at Walsh University. It's a gorgeous location and it shows in the portraits. After a tradition wedding ceremony, we headed outside to the courtyard for wedding photographs. The grounds of Walsh University are wonderful for wedding photography, there's plenty of fantastic locations for photos near the chapel and the weather co-operated with us for some awesome wedding photos! Then it was on the to the Barrette Center on campus for the reception. It's pretty cool, most of the wedding guests actually walked over the the wedding reception from the wedding ceremony. Everyone had a great time at the party, including these two wedding photographers! Thank you and congratulations to Greg and Marla!
