Cuyahoga Valley National Park
When I found out Caitlin and Wesley’s wedding was in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park I got so excited! This park is SO big and so beautiful I knew no matter where it was we were going to have perfect backdrops for portraits. It wasn’t until I arrived at the Hines Hill Conference Center that I realized just how perfect it was- trees, ponds, old beautiful stone buildings, the list goes on, GAH just perfect!
How it happened
I only had the pleasure of photographing Caitlin and Wesley’s wedding because of Caitlin’s mom, an amazing co-worker of mine who passed my information onto to them. Peg is just the kindest person and I knew working with Caitlin was going to be a breeze. The entire day just seemed so laid back and wasn’t filled with any pre wedding stress or worries. Caitlin and Wesley are very much go with the flow type people and it made the day so relaxed, they even saw each other BEFORE the first look! Which you’d think would kind of take the moment away but I assure you it did not! It was just as surprising and emotional as if they hadn’t seen each other. A wedding dress and suit just adds something to your emotions <3
Odds and Ends
I was so worried about the weather, all week it was cold and rain and it
When it comes down to your wedding day being stressless, joyful and taking in all the little moments that FLY by is the best way to celebrate the day. In just 12’ish short hours it is all over and all you have are your memories ( and photos of course 😉 ) So be sure to take it all in and truly relish it.
Congratulations Caitlin and Wesley, it was truly a pleasure to capture your Wedding Day <3
