Manatees, Dogs, & Costumes?! My Kind of Wedding!! – Kristen & David – White Birch Barn Wedding in Medina, Ohio – Cleveland Wedding Photographer

I knew from the moment I met Kristen & David at their engagement session that they were going to have an awesome wedding, and boy did they! Totally in love with their color scheme, so unique and beautiful. They had their wedding at the gorgeous White Birch Barn in Medina. It was my first time at this venue, and I already can’t wait to go back next month for another wedding! It has everything, including a bridal suite for the girls to get ready in, a cabin for the guys, a cozy fire pit and outdoor bar, beautiful outdoor ceremony site surrounded by amazing photos spots, and the warm and cozy barn for the reception.

It was a little chilly for the ceremony, being November, but the venue provided some heaters for the guests and the couple provided some cozy blankets as well. What is a wedding without some dogs, right? David walked their two pups down the aisle, so they could see mommy coming down to marry daddy. So cute!!! After the ceremony, there were so many picturesque spots on the property to take formal photos. Was it cold? Yes, lol, but the ladies luckily had some adorable scarves to keep warm under that matched the color scheme perfectly.

What is a reception without the bridal party entering in costumes?! Yup, they did that! Finished up with the groom in a giant shark suit even! And then there was the manatees on top of the cake..Loved it!!! Kristen and David had the cutest “Dog treat bar” for their guests to treat their own fur babies, and instead of guest favors, they opted to donate the funds to a local animal shelter. LOVE!! Now, go check out their gorgeous wedding!!

Mr. Mrs. Kilcher - Landerhaven Wedding - Lindsay Dawn Photography

Emerald & Navy Wedding – Landerhaven – Mr. & Mrs. Kilcher – Lindsay Dawn Photography – Cleveland Wedding Photographer

Amanda and Sean had the most perfect wedding day this past fall! It was my second trip back to the beautiful Landerhaven Events center, and I was so happy to be back. They were married under a heated tent, which was attached to the grand ballroom that their reception was held in. I absolutely loved all of the emerald green and navy touches, as well as the subtle gold.

Amanda and Sean have the most amazing chemistry, and are just naturals in front of the camera. Candids are my favorite, and they nailed those along with the formal poses. Their family and bridal party were such a blast too!! We did a first look with Amanda’s grandma, and their smiles brought me to tears! Her and Sean wrote letters to each other, and watching her read his letter was also a tearjerking moment.

Amanda is a school teacher, and her family even surprised her with having her whole class and their parents at the ceremony. They were the first thing she saw when she entered the ceremony tent, and it was nothing but smiles and tears down the aisle. Sean and Amanda had a sand ceremony, which brought a lot of laughs, and some beautiful art to keep forever.

The reception was insane! I haven’t seen a dance floor that packed all night in years! The crowd was non stop dancing, and their was even a Spanish coffee bar! Did I mention the ice cream canoe? Yup! Landerhaven staff impressed everyone with a giant canoe filled with ice cream and all the toppings for guests to build their own sundaes. Such a hit!

Check out all the fun and pretties below!! Also check out the list of all of the awesome vendors from this day at the bottom of the page!

Mr. & Mrs. Tortora – Meadow Ridge Events – Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographer

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!

These two were hands down one of my most fun engagement sessions to date. They never stop smiling and laughing together, such natural fits together, it is inspiring. My husband John & I went a little early to Fairport Harbor, a small town along Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio, to grab some dinner before the engagement session. While eating we kept looking outside and noticing, after living just 20 minutes away our whole lives, what a cute little town it is. I am SO glad that we chose this for Stacy & David’s session! And even more happy that we had such beautiful weather and a gorgeous sunset!

Now throw in the beautiful artwork on their bodies, and it is even more perfect! If you know me at all, I LOVE tattoos! And these two have some amazing work on themselves!!

Michelle & Matt -Northeast Ohio & Western Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer

Back in March, I had the honor of capturing Matt and Michelle’s gorgeous wedding ceremony inside the beautiful First Presbyterian Church in Sharon, PA. Both of their beautiful children were in the wedding party, their son even helping his little sister with her flower girl duties. The cutest!! And check out the fun bubble exit from the church! After the ceremony, and after family and bridal party photos, the couple and I moved on to the gorgeous Buhl Park.  This park has it all, from a gorgeous mansion to even a small lake. Perfect spot for Western PA wedding photos! The reception was just over the border in to Northeast Ohio, at Tiffany’s Banquet Center . Michelle and Matt had a delicious buffet for their guest, and even the most amazing cookie spread. I mean it, check out all of the choices of homemade cookies and treats for their friends and family..and me! DJ Mark Lawrence kept the party going all night, including some amazing dance moves from the couple’s own children and bridal party! And how amazing did Michelle look in her gorgeous gown from Bling Bridal Boutique?!

The newlyweds received their wedding gallery this week, and now I get to share their day with you! I am a Northeast Ohio wedding photographer, but as you can see I am also a destination wedding photographer. So if you are planning a wedding in Western Pennsylvania, Yosemite, Fiji, or anywhere in the world, I would love to chat! I have my passport ready!
