Lake Erie Bluffs - Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Lake Erie Bluffs Wedding – Mr. & Mrs. Hruska – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Amanda & Derek had originally planned for a summer 2019 wedding, but a last minute decision had them move the date to December 2018. They had a beautiful, intimate ceremony, at one of my favorite wedding spots, Lake Erie Bluffs. The Bluffs is a part of the Lake MetroParks, sitting along the cliffs of Lake Erie in Perry, Ohio. There is a beautiful building on site, with glass doors making up two of the walls, and a fireplace taking up a third. So perfect for a small intimate wedding like theres!

Amanda planned the cutest holiday themed wedding, with a hot chocolate bar & cozy blanket station even! Did it rain a little? Yes. But, did we let it spoil the day? Absolutely not!! I grabbed my cute umbrella and we headed outside for some formal photos after the ceremony! Check out there beautiful December wedding, and the vendors listed below!

Old Stone Church - Cleveland - Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Mr. & Mrs. Tichar – The Old Stone Church & Nuevo -Cleveland – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Christy and John Mark’s wedding day was nothing short of a dream wedding. Fall came very late this past year, but with that it made their wedding day a fall dream with it being the peak weekend for the amazing colors!

It was a bit windy and chilly, so we had to get creative with the first look, since Christy had a cathedral length veil. SO worth it!!! Her veil even took flight shortly after, luckily caught by her bridesmaids LOL! What better place to take formal photos than Wade Park, in front of the Cleveland Museum of Art?! It made for such a stunning backdrop!!!

The Old Stone Church, just across from Wade Park, is stunning!! Their ceremony was dreamy!! With all of the groom’s nephews as the ring bearers, it made for quite the introduction for the bride…SO CUTE!! With the help of my amazingly talented second shooter, Dana(see her info below), we were able to capture images from the balcony and from the very front of the church. AMAZING!

Their reception was in the most perfect spot, Nuevo, overlooking downtown Cleveland and even the Lake Erie sunset. Amazing food, gorgeous views, and the DJ kept the dance floor packed all night. Did you see the cigar bar? Check it out!!! And find all the amazing vendors below!

Liz & Matt’s Woodsy Wedding at The Grand Barn of the Mohicans – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

I have known Liz and Matt for years, all having met each other while working together at the Redhawk Grille in Concord. I love that I got to watch their love story unfold! When Matt finally popped the question (in a sunflower field no less!) and they asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was over the moon excited. The planning began immediately, Liz knowing the exact theme she wanted: woody and jewel toned. She nailed it!!

The Grand Barn of the Mohicans was the perfect venue for their wedding theme. Set in the heart of Mohican State Park, surrounded by tree houses, with rooms for the bride and groom to get ready in, and all the feels of an elegant woodsy wedding.

Not only did they choose the perfect venue, but they also had the dream team of vendors(see full list below). Wondering if you should hire a wedding planner? DO IT!!! This was my first wedding working along side a wedding planner, and Meredith from Rain Wedding and Event Planning was AMAZING! She anticipated everything before it even happened, and the day could not have run more smoothly. Burning River Entertainment was just about the most awesome DJ I have ever worked with, dancing along side the guests and keeping the party going strong. Did you see the flowers and greenery? Four Seasons Florist did a spectacular job!! SO beautiful!!!

OK, enough with my rambling…Check out this gorgeous wedding!!!!
