Shannon and Giovanni were married at Sacred Heart Church in Wadsworth. Nate and I shot some prep shots in the basement of the church. Following their ceremony, we went to the Canton Garden Center. Unfortunately, it began to rain when we got there. We found a nice area where the tree cover was keeping us dry. As I was setting up my first group shot, bridal party members started getting stung by yellow jackets, so we decided to leave. The only indoor place that was near us was Belden Village Mall. A mall might seem like an odd place to shoot, but I was getting ideas for some really unique shots. However, we go booted by a mall cop right away. We did manage to get some really great stuff in one of the stores in the mall, but the manager asked that I don’t put the photos online because of something to do with their lease agreement. Some B&Gs wold loose their cool with all the adversities we were facing, but Shannon and Giovanni had an awesome attitude made the best of the situation. The entire bridal party was hilarious really helped me get some fantastic shots. I was very thankful.
The reception was at La Pizzaria in Canton. It is a large beautiful venue with a giant dance floor. The food was amazing. Shannon and Giovanni’s guests came ready to party. The floor was packed and everybody was having an awesome time, myself included.
