The Encore Hall - Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Mr. & Mrs. Webster – The Encore Hall – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Sam & Dillon may have had some rain on their wedding day, but that did not spoil a thing. It was perfection! They did have two ceremonies, and first for me. The first being a full Catholic mass at a little church in Amish country, Ohio, with just their bridal party and immediate family. The second ceremony was for all of their guests, where they read their personal vows to each other at The Encore Hall.

I cannot say enough good things about The Encore Hall. Designed by a wedding planner, it has everything you need for your perfect day, all in one place. The bride and groom started their day upstairs from the main hall, in private and beautiful suites, designed for brides and grooms. The ceremony space is gorgeous, Sam was escorted down the grand staircase for the ceremony. After the ceremony, the guests indulged on local cheeses, and even a popcorn bar in the atrium, while the staff transformed the ceremony space in to the spectacular reception hall.

Let’s talk about their details! From the custom made board introducing the bridal party, to the cornhole boards, the cookie spread, and even the popcorn bar..It was all so perfect and unique! Did you see the florals and greenery?? SO gorgeous!!

Now stop reading, and start looking at this beautiful wedding day!!

Stacy & David’s Intimate Sunset Wedding – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

I first met Stacy & David in Fairport Harbor, Ohio, for the engagement session they had won. I had a contest on my Facebook business page, asking couples to tell me their proposal stories, and this lucky couple won! I knew from the moment that I met them, I would love them! They are so sweet, hilarious, and just generally fun to be around. It also helped that we share a love for tattoos. During their session, they told me about the backyard/elopement style wedding they had planned on a Tuesday in August. I loved hearing how they planned the timing of the ceremony. They sat on their porch one day, and waited for the most perfect sunset light, and that is when they knew the exact time they wanted to be married! Not long after putting up sneak peeks of their engagement session, Stacy reached out about how they had to have as their wedding photographer, and I am so glad they did!!

When I drove the hour south to get to their families property in West Farmington, it was storming bad. I was so worried! But, as I got closer, the skies opened up and even a rainbow appeared as I was pulling down the driveway! Did I mention I got to ride on the back of a 4-wheeler at this wedding? YES!! I had to check out the beautiful ceremony site before the wedding, and that was the quickest way there! The ceremony was set along side a beautiful pond, and just under a gorgeous willow tree. Now, remember how I told you about those earlier storms? They gave us the most amazing sunset skies!!

Just before the ceremony, Stacy’s mom talked about how different life was just a year prior. You see, a little over a year ago, they all lost just about everything in a house fire. Lighting struck their porch, and burned the house almost completely down. So, to see this amazing couple and family rise from the ashes and build a new life together, and plan the most beautiful wedding, well it is inspiring. Good hearted, down to earth, amazing people.

Now it was time for the wedding! Stacy’s dad drove her over in style, in his restored old Jeep(it is so cool!!). A friend sang and played the guitar. The weather was perfect, and even gave us enough time before dark to get some amazing images of the couple. An amazing elopement feel from this wedding evening. After the ceremony, everyone gathered back at the house(rebuilt since the fire), for some hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and cake. I wish I could say that I photographed their reception as well, but they had that about a month later and I was already booked with another wedding. SO grateful to have met this amazing couple, and capture their beautiful wedding day for them!!
