I could talk all day about Abby & Dan’s wedding and the love they share for each other. These two had a very intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family at the Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens’ Tea Houses. Then they joined the rest of their loved ones at the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls.
I had so much fun with the girls while Abby was getting ready. Her bridesmaids were hilarious and kept Abby laughing while she was anxiously waiting to see her groom. She got a little sneak peek when Dan and his groomsmen came in from the parking lot and someone spotted them in the window upstairs. 🙂
The ceremony was short and sweet which was perfect for them because they were so excited to finally be married! Throughout the rest of the day Abby kept saying to Dan “We’re married!” It was the cutest thing.
The bridal party and I wandered around Stan Hywet for some gorgeous portraits in the English Garden. This group was so much fun to work with! And those fantastic sparkly bridesmaids dresses were something else.
We headed to Sheraton Suites for the reception. I was so excited to work there, not just because it’s an awesome space but because it holds so much meaning for Abby & Dan. The room their reception was held was the same room that Abby & Dan met a few years earlier at another wedding and down by the falls where we took sunset photos is where Dan proposed to Abby. So special!
Even though I was so spoiled with the beautiful locations and details, it was Abby & Dan that made the day perfect. They were so comfortable in front of the camera, so completely head over heels in love with each other. You can truly see the love in their eyes. They made my job so easy and it was such a pleasure to work with them. I knew from my first meeting with Abby that we were a great fit for one another but they exceeded my expectations and I’m proud to call them my friends. It wasn’t only Abby & Dan that were super warm and friendly to me but their families as well. Such sweet people!
Last fun fact before the photos- Abby’s father officiated a wedding I second shot a few years ago and the back of his head is in my portfolio! When Abby showed her parents my work after meeting with me Abby’s mom pointed it out. 🙂
Seeing Dan from the window!
