For our final wedding of 2017, we had the pleasure of photographing the celebration of Justin and Emily. The day began with a beautiful ceremony if front of family and friends that was held at St. Sebastian Church in Akron. After the ceremony, the wedding party headed to the Cascade Valley Park for some outdoor shots. While it was a chilly November 11th afternoon, the sun was out and the happy couple and their attendants were great sports about dealing with the cold weather in exchange for some great photo opportunities. Throughout the afternoon, Emily and her girls carried beautiful floral arrangement by Becca Abbot from Beloved Floral Design.
After the outdoor photographs, the party moved to a cocktail hour and reception at the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls. Throughout the evening, Scott Hall from Capture This! Entertainment could be seen drawing caricature portraits for any guest who wanted a sketch. The reception hall also featured more of the wonderful arrangements and décor from Becca Abbott. Guests were also greeted at each place setting by a personalized mini wine bottle as a party favor – the labels on the bottles featured a cute photo from Emily and Justin’s engagement session – cheers!
After a great meal, guests were treated to a gorgeous wedding cake prepared by Buehlers. There was also a fun opportunity to partake in a build-your-own trail mix bar, and as if that wasn’t enough – there was a cookie table as well! Hats Off Entertainment provided DJ services for the evening, and kept family and friends dancing and celebrating long into the evening. Throughout the preparations and on the day of their wedding itself, Justin and Emily were a true pleasure to work with, and we wish them great happiness in their new life together as husband and wife!
