A Fall Wedding at ThornCreek Winery near Cleveland with Lauren & Danny

Hi, first thing’s first. Lauren makes delicious pies, like the best pies I’ve ever had. Go eat some.

Okay! Lauren & Danny got married at the always gorgeous ThornCreek Winery. Last year, I was there the exact same weekend and we had very different weather. We’re talking 80 degrees vs. 40. We managed and Lauren stole some warmth from Danny’s pockets occasionally. The sun peaked out towards the end of the ceremony and it was much appreciated. After the ceremony we headed into the heated tent for some super entertaining speeches and a super packed dance floor.

My favorite parts of the day were the Zumba class Lauren’s sister taught to kick off the dancing, the bridesmaids cracking jokes all day, and the unity candle not lighting for a good five minutes. I think it’s important to laugh at the silly things that can go wrong on a wedding day and Lauren & Danny definitely did just that. Oh, bonus – Lauren walking down the aisle to “The Circle of Life”. These two made their wedding their own and it was so fun to photograph.

L&D – Cheers to pie and laughter 🙂
