I have been SO excited to share Liesl and Blake’s gorgeous June wedding all Summer!! They got married at their family’s beautiful orchard in Canton, Ohio at Varian Orchards.

The weather was less than ideal (68 and rainy) but that did not stop the bride and groom, or anyone else from having an amazing time. Blake and Liesl are the epitome of what matters in a wedding. What matters is the marriage, rain on your wedding day will not ruin the beautiful life you are building, and so many of us could take note of their amazing positive attitudes. They were so excited and so fun and refreshing to be around.

The wedding details were perfect. I absolutely LOVED their flowers by Reily’s Originals. The décor and planning done by the amazing Maria from Elegant Events by Maria. They had a group of wonderful vendors making the day run so smoothly (even with the unexpected rain!) Then, we had the most beautiful sunset! And the sky lanterns were the perfect ending to the night.

I am so proud of these images, and honored I could be a part of their day.

Congrats to you Liesl and Blake!! Hope married life is treating you so well!

I love Meggie and Matt!!

Aren’t they just the cutest!? We hit it off immediately when we shared beer at their consult in German Village. And again at their adorable E session. And of course had an amazing time on their wedding day.

Meggie and I have similar styles, and I was so excited to see we had such similar decor at our weddings too! She is an adorable little thing and Matt is her perfect compliment.

Their day was so much fun, and I just LOVE the images that came from it.

Lindsey and Eric are just gorgeous! I absolutely loved photographing their day just a week before my own wedding! I literally died over her dress, the neutral colors, their pup with a flower crown, barn/outdoor setting… my dream wedding!

Lindsey and Eric got married at Polen Farm in Dayton, Ohio. This was my first time shooting at the venue and I hope it’s not my last! Truly so beautiful.

Congrats to you both!

This is Kelly and Chris!

We had so much fun running around one of my favorite towns, Granville! Such a quaint little place, and we shot at Bryn Du Mansion which was absolutely gorgeous! The leaves in this session just make me ache for Fall… So beautiful!

Can’t wait for Chris and Kelly’s wedding September 2015!! Such a sweet couple, it is so clear how much fun they have together!

Congrats to you two!!
