Shawshank Woodshop Wedding | Upper Sandusky, Ohio

Small hometown weddings are some of my favorites. I love when couples pick a location that has meaning for them for their big day! When I met with Joey and Jennifer, they spoke excitedly about their wedding plans in Upper Sandusky. Being a photographer from Cleveland, I didn’t know much about Jennifer’s hometown. Upper Sandusky is small town with a lot of character. It was one of several film locations for the movie, The Shawshank Redemption. When they revealed that the Shawshank Woodshop was the location for the reception, I knew this wedding would be a blast!

Getting married at  Jennifer’s childhood church, we started the day at Trinity United Church of Christ. Jennifer and Joey both choose to get ready there with family and close friends. The church was intimate and the perfect size for the ceremony.

The brooch with her grandmother’s initials was added to the bridal bouquet as the something “old” and something “borrowed”.

Detail of the wedding rings placed on the embroidered handkerchief. Jennifer carried it with her bouquet.

Mother of the bride was so happy to help Jennifer get ready.

Father of the bride was so excited to see his daughter in her dress for the first time.

Beautiful view of the back of the bride’s dress from the choir loft.

Old Stained glass on the interior of the choir loft of the church was perfect for a wedding portrait.

A pocket of nice light in the stairwell from the choir loft created spot for a candid portrait.

Located next to the Sandusky River, Indian Mill Museum was a gorgeous backdrop for portraits after the ceremony.

Shawshank Woodshop and Museum was perfect for an intimate wedding reception.

Designed by Jennifer, the botanical details on the seating cards greeted the guests.

Bride and groom hung out with a few wedding crashers.

With the glow from the reception inside, Jennifer and Joey enjoyed a moment alone and the last photo of the night.


Cleveland Ritz Carlton Wedding | Moran + Eric

Cleveland in December. You never know what weather you are going to get on a wedding day. Photographing in downtown Cleveland in the winter can be dreary, but Moran and Eric wedding day was bright and cheerful. Eric and Moran met overseas and planned to have wedding celebrations for both families. Because they were having a wedding ceremony in March in Moran’s native Israel, they choose to have an intimate wedding with family and close friends here in Cleveland.

The bride and groom got ready for their day at the Ritz Carlton downtown. The Ritz was the perfect venue for their intimate ceremony and reception. The hotel has gone through amazing renovations, including the lobby. It was great spot for their quick first look. With the sun on our side, we ventured outside of the Ritz for portraits on Public Square. Even after the leaves and flowers are gone, Public Square is an inviting space to take photographs.

Moran and Eric had a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Ceremony began surrounded by family the signing of a Ketubah, their marriage agreement.  Friends held up their lovely Chuppah, a canopy beneath which Moran and Eric said their vows. 

After the ceremony, a private dinner reception held for their wedding guests.  To kick off the evening, family and friends enjoyed a few cocktails before Eric and Moran’s parents and siblings shared hear-felt words for the bride and groom. Documenting their wedding story was truly a pleasure.

Ariel International Wedding | Alison + Matt

There is nothing like getting married in your hometown. Alison and Matt came home to Cleveland have their wedding ceremony and reception at the Ariel International Center. With panoramic views of the Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline, Ariel International was the perfect choice in venue.

Their wedding day began at Alison’s parent home where Alison and Matt decided to do a first look in the backyard. Even though it is less traditional, a first look is a great idea for couples who want to do portraits before the ceremony. And Matt was all smiles when seeing his bride for the first time.

Rain was in the forecast, but held off long enough for some outdoor photos. From Alison’s parents’ home, we headed to the Cleveland Museum of Art and Wade Oval. The museum with its wonderful architecture and landscaped grounds is a natural spot for great wedding portraits.

The ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. Beautiful white draped background was hung in the ceremony space. The reception room glittered with gold tablecloths with pink hydrangea and rose centerpieces. The Cleveland skies cleared in the evening so we went up to the roof deck to catch the those 360 degree views.

Cleveland Wedding | Lindsey + Stephen

I was excited to photograph Lindsey and Stephen’s wedding story. They are the cutest match! They have a shared love for the Cleveland Indians, Ohio State Buckeyes and their two fur babies, Buckeye and Brutus.

Lindsey arrived with her bridesmaids at her parish, St. Anthony of Padua Church in Parma. She shared moments with her dad before the ceremony while Stephen spend time with his groomsmen. They had a traditional Catholic wedding ceremony, with family and friends all smiles. Afterwards, we headed to the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland Botanical Gardens for wedding portraits and time with the bridal party. The wedding reception that evening was held at Saint Clarence Pavilion in North Olmsted, complete with a sparkler exit at the end of the night.

Ballroom at Park Lane Wedding | Cleveland, Ohio

Blue skies were in the forecast for Christine and Brad’s spectacular day. I was so excited for the opportunity to photograph their wedding. Christine got ready for her day at the same location as their reception later that evening, The Ballroom at Park Lane. Built in 1923 as a luxury hotel and speakeasy, Park Lane now serves as a unique venue for wedding and events in Cleveland. The venue also has a large bridal suite and a lovely outdoor courtyard for portraits so it was perfect location to start the day.

Brad began his day with going over the vows for the ceremony at  St. Paschal’s Baylon Catholic Church. With a wall of windows, the ceremony had beautiful light!

Christine and Brad love Cleveland. We took the bridal party downtown after the ceremony for some portrait fun at the Rock Hall. And photos by Lake Erie always says “This is the Land”.

Cleveland Museum of Art lagoon served as a perfect backdrop for some drop-dead gorgeous wedding portraits.

The custom designed wedding cake from A Cookie and A Cupcake was a stunner.

Alissa + Mike | Springlake Wedding, Lakemore, Ohio

Alissa and Mike found the perfect location for their outdoor ceremony. When we met a few months before their wedding day, they were so excited they found the perfect venue. I couldn’t wait to see it!

Just south of Akron, Springlake Party Center is located in Lakemore, Ohio. Springlake provides a lovely backdrop with beautiful lakeside views.  Along with the gazebo for the ceremony, the venue has landscaped grounds for portraits. (Definitely a big plus for the wedding photographer!)

Alissa got ready with her bridesmaids at the Marriott in downtown Akron. First, I started to document all the beautiful details. The glittery shoes. The sparkling bridal jewelry. And that  bridal veil. It was extra special. Alissa’s mom had the veil made from her wedding dress. After we finished photos, I headed to ceremony. I caught up with the groom getting ready for the ceremony with his family.

With clouds overhead getting darker as the ceremony ended, we squeezed in the last portraits before the down pour. The rain didn’t matter. Even with the storm threatening overhead, Alissa’s sweet personality and Mike’s good sense of humor, they had the perfect wedding day.

It was a pleasure to document their moments and watch the day unfold.

Amy + Taryn | Mapleside Farm Wedding Brunswick, Ohio

Amy and Taryn selected a wedding venue with the most fantastic countryside view in Ohio. Mapleside Farm is a small apple farm located just south of Cleveland. With a picturesque views of the orchards in the valley below, the ceremony took place on the sunny hilltop next to the barn. Mapleside Farm wedding_cleveland ohio_Glorioso Photography196
