Brookside Farm Wedding – Mr. & Mrs. Kudley – Northeast Ohio Wedding & Destination Wedding Photographer

 

Jenna & Stephen could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day at Brookside Farms. The weather man was calling for possible rain, but we ended up with picture perfect weather…literally. Even though the venue is a bit of a drive for me, I can’t wait to photograph another wedding there! Why? Here are a few reasons:

  1. Everything a bridal party and guests need is all on the farm. Everything! There is a cottage for the guys to get ready in, and a decked out basement room for the girls to get ready in(vanities, fridge, places for HMUA to work, etc).
  2. The gorgeous chapel for the ceremony is about 25 feet from the reception barn. Yup, after the ceremony the guests can just walk on over for cocktail hour!
  3. SO many amazing places to take the formal photos! There is a covered bridge, an historic inn, and acres and acres of beautiful farmland.
  4. The receptions bard is huge. A great beautiful area for all of the guests tables, separate huge area for the dance floor. And another great space for a photo booth over by the massive bar.

I loved everything about Jenna & Stephen’s wedding. The color scheme of wine & navy is a favorite of mine, and photographs so beautifully. One of the bridesmaids used to be a florist, and mans she did not disappoint with the flowers. They were so gorgeous!! A talented cousin of the bride even made the amazing wedding cake! Now let’s talk about Jenna’s gorgeous gown…Obsessed!! The couple’s families and friends made me feel like one of them for the day, and I could not be more grateful. Now, stop listening to me and check out all the pretties!

Centerville Mills Wedding – Mr. & Mrs. Teel – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

Two families, one from Alabama and the other from Ohio, came together here in Northeast Ohio to celebrate the love story of Alex & Nathan and watch them become wed. It was so beautiful!!!

Watching the guys get ready was entertaining, as it usually is with them LOL. They even had fun showing me their funky socks. The ladies got ready in style with shirts the bride had made specifically for each of her girls. Mom had a hankie embroidered with a quote from a book she used to ready to Alex…tears!!! And talk about a first look! Alex had one with her Dad, followed by one with her groom, bring on the tears again!!

Now I know you want to see more of this gorgeous Northeast Ohio wedding! Check out the highlights below!

I love all of my weddings, I really do. But, I REALLY love my small and intimate weddings, like Liz & Kirks! I always bond with my couples throughout their wedding day, but when it just a small gathering of just family, I end the day feeling like a part of their whole family.

Liz & Kirk had an intimate wedding in front of the Gazebo at The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake, right in front of Lake Erie. It was a very sunny, and very hot day, but you wouldn’t know it by their smiles! The only guests were immediate family, and after all of the formal photos were taken, they had an intimate dinner in one of the small party rooms at the lodge. There was one surprise though! In the lounge, outside of their party room, a jazz singer was playing and invited the couple to come out and have a first dance. Not planned, but so perfect!!

Check out their beautiful wedding day!!!

Mike & Leigh did not let a little rain spoil their wedding day. It turned out AMAZING!! The setting was nothing short of breathtaking. A little shuffling of guests to move the ceremony in to the reception area, but the view behind them as they said I DO was so beautiful as the rain fell!! And talk about romantic, Mike even got down on one knee to place the ring on his bride’s finger. He then topped that by sweeping her off of her feet for the most amazing first kiss I have seen yet.

Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Mike & Leigh became married. From the beautiful blush & navy tones, to the gorgeous cake and flowers, this Northeast Ohio wedding was one of my favorites!
