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!
