Grand Pacific Hotel Wedding | Olmsted Falls, Ohio

Kristy and Dave’s love story began at work in Ohio, although it was an a hour apart. Even with Dave living in the country and Kristy living in Lakewood, they made the commute work for 4 years. Dave proposed to Kristy on a family trip in Sodus Point,NY. While on the trip, Kristy was skipping some rocks on the water and Dave got on down on one knee. Kristy turned around and was so shocked she accidentally pushed him over!

Everything about their wedding was uniquely them! Dave and Kristy selected Grand Pacific Wedding Gardens in Olmsted Falls to hold their outdoor ceremony with the reception following at the Grand Pacific Hotel. The ceremony site over looks a stream with two charming cottages for the bride and groom to await their guests. Built in the 1830’s, the Grand Pacific Hotel is the one of the oldest historic structures in Olmsted Township. The hotel was perfect from their intimate wedding.

Every wedding detail was personalized. Kristy had her creative hand designing wedding invitations. She even created the logo with their faces on the invite and the match box covers. Wedding florals by were both playful and elegant ( Helen from A New Leaf Florist knocked it out of the park!) A backdrop of colorful ribbon and pompoms blew in the breeze behind Dave and Kristy at the ceremony. Handmade name cards with ninjas and cars greeted the guests at the reception. The wedding day was uniquely them!

Kelsey + Robert | Farm Wedding Newbury, Ohio

I was very excited when Kelsey and Robert contacted me about their farm wedding. Spending the day documenting their wedding at the family’s horse property was a photographer’s dream.  Grassy fields, split-rail wood fences, a century farm house, golden hour sunlit portraits- what is not to love?

Anna and Tim | Cleveland Cultural Garden Engagement Session

I am looking forward to photographing Anna and Tim’s spring wedding in April, but it was also a lot fun to get some early fall photos outside in the Cleveland sunshine. I was excited that they selected the Cleveland Cultural Gardens for their engagement photo session. It is one of Cleveland’s true gems.

Olmsted Falls Wedding | Brittany + Bill

With vintage style in mind, the historical downtown of Olmsted Falls was the perfect location for Brittany and Bill’s wedding. The Grand Pacific Chapel, built in 1851 as Methodist Episcopal Church, now serves as a non-denominational ceremony site for Cleveland weddings.

The attending wedding guests signed a Jenga piece for the newlyweds for them to remember all who celebrated with them at the reception.

Kristen + Tad’s Cleveland Wedding

Rain didn’t dampen the joy on Kristen and Tad’s autumn wedding day.  After the ceremony at Grace Church in Middleburg Heights, we headed to Wallace Lake in Berea, where Kristen and Tad had their first date and Tad had proposed.  I think that the drizzle stopped just for Kristen.

High school sweethearts, Jourdan and Jake are soul mates. The love of each other’s lives. From their son Jace with Jake on the alter to Grandpa giving Jourdan a last kiss before going down the aisle, the love of family and friends also shined throughout their wedding day.

Mike’s Cleveland 9th Pier Proposal

I enjoy photographing engagement sessions for couples. When Mike was ready to propose to his beautiful girlfriend, Erica, he wanted me to photograph them getting engaged. How exciting is that to be asked to capture the moment when someone asks the love of their life, “Will you marry me?”
