Heather and David were married on May 12 at Mentor Plains United Methodist Church. The weather was absolutely perfect for a wedding. Nate and I arrived at Heather’s place for getting-ready shots. Heather looked stunning, as did her bridesmaids. The ceremony was short and sweet, which left a lot of time for photos. Our creative session took place at the Italian and Hungarian Cultural Gardens, both of which are beautiful and offer a ton of options.
The reception was at The Ballroom at Park Lane, formerly known as Park Lane Villa in University Circle. It’s really an amazing venue and one of my favorites to shoot at. Heather and David had blue up-lighting, which made the space look even more incredible than usual.
Working with Heather, Dave and their bridal party was incredible fun. There were definitely some nerves and butterflies before the ceremony, but as soon as it was over, Heather and Dave were ready to celebrate and enjoy the day. Everything went off without a hitch and fell into place perfectly.
I was really happy to work with so many amazing professionals. Heidi Baumgart and Leigh Perrino of Heidzillas did the wedding planning and made sure everything was in place and on time, as well as so much more. John of Selective Sound did a great job with the up-lighting, MC duties and most importantly, music. The Ballroom at Park Lane was great to work with as well. The food was amazing. Heather Lily provided the beautiful bouquets and centerpieces for the tables.
Below are a some of my favorite moments from Heather and Dave’s fantastic wedding.
I often ask someone in the bridal party to draw attention to themselves and make whoever I’m photographing laugh. It’s interesting to see what some people do. The groomsman below obviously has at least one child. It worked though. Nate took this shot.
Below is a great shot by Nate.
The rooms and uplighting looked spectacular.
