Today we got to be a part of Ashley & John’s wedding day and it was a cold one! We started off at the Hilton Garden Inn near Akron-Canton Airport where Ashley and her bridesmaids prepped for the day. After several detail shots and the most adorable flowergirl, Eva, had her grand debut, we headed to The Hair Shoppe and Spa to finalize hair and makeup. At Gervasi Vineyard Ashley and her bridesmaids did final prep for the ceremony and reception. The Bridal room was quite cozy and we were tight on time, but we were able to capture several images of the absolutely stunning bride-to-be before the fellas arrived.
The wedding and reception both took place in the pavilion. It was such a special ceremony as Ashley walked down the aisle with her mother, smiling the entire way. Ashley requested an image in front of the door of the Gervasi Vineyard Italian Bistro (which has since become one of my favorite images!) We decided that this would be best at night, so we broke away from the reception and grabbed a few images before the closing of the night. It turned out perfectly as twinkle lights lit the paths and the trees. This is one of the many benefits of having unlimited time allotted for photography the day of the wedding (which is included for all my bridal clients)! The best images are almost always at the end of the night as everything starts to wind down.
