Mikayla & Chris: Serenity Winery

On a beautiful late September day this wonderful couple got married at the gorgeous Serenity Winery in Huntsburg, OH. The day started with getting ready pictures of the bride and groom. The couple had a first touch (where they don't see each other but have the opportunity to hold hands and talk to each other for a few minutes) before the girls took their group pictures. Their ceremony took place next to the pond. After the ceremony, we took the family, wedding party, and then the bride & groom pictures.

The bridal party was announced into the reception which was immediately followed by the first dance and the parent dances. Speeches were given by the maid of honor and best man and then it was time to eat a delicious dinner! After dinner was the cake cutting. There was a beautiful sunset so I pulled the couple outside for a few pictures. When we came back inside, the groomsmen grabbed Chris and chained a bowling ball to his leg! It was a fun moment. The bouquet and garter toss took place during a break in the dancing. Towards the end of the evening, they did a sparkler exit! The couple shared a last dance with each other at the end of the night.

It was a fun day and I enjoyed photographing Chris & Mikayla's wedding! I hope their life together will be filled with incredible moments and memories! Here are just a few of the many pictures they received!

Joetta & Austin: The Harper Event Venue

It was a beautiful sunny day for this wonderful couple's wedding in Meadville, PA. The venue they choose was amazing with a nice bridal suite and a beautiful, landscaped property with many different places for pictures! The day started with photos of the bride and her girls getting ready. After Joetta was ready she did a first look with Austin while some of her bridesmaids and her mom looked on. Then we did the bridesmaid, groomsmen, and wedding party photos.

The ceremony was an emotional one with laughs and tears. That was followed by family pictures. We started by taking them outside but due to the heat we went inside to finish (for the AC!). While the guests enjoyed cocktail hour, I took the couple around and photographed them at several areas of the property. After their grand entrance, the bride's mom gave a welcome speech before dinner. The remaining speeches took place after dinner and then the dancing began starting with the first dance and parent dances. The cake cutting followed... I loved that they weren't afraid to smash it! The evening ended with a few pictures under the lights at twilight.

It was wonderful to meet both of you! I enjoyed photographing your wedding and I wish you both a life full of happiness and love! Here are just a few of the many images they received!

Jennifer & Matthew: Elegant Backyard Wedding

I don't think this couple could've asked for a more beautiful day for their backyard wedding! It was truly the perfect summer day complete with a gorgeous sunset! They did an amazing job preparing their backyard for the event. When I arrived we started by taking pictures of the couple followed by a few family images. The ceremony was next with the bride and groom walking up the aisle together. 

After the ceremony, Jennifer & Matthew spent some time greeting their guests. Then we finished the family pictures and the bride and her family had a special, emotional toast in honor of her late father. Other toasts followed and then it was time for a delicious meal! As dinner ended, the cakes and pastries were brought out - all made by the bride's sisters, mother, and sister-in-laws. The cake cutting was next - the couple actually did about 3 cake cuttings together since there were so many cakes available! Sunset pictures were next and then they did their first dance together while their family & friends gathered around the dancefloor to watch. 

It was wonderful to meet both of you and photograph your special day! I wish you both a lifetime full of joy and happiness!
Here are just a few of the many images they received!

Alexis & Noah: Lake Farmpark

It was a beautiful day for a wedding! I met up with this wonderful couple at their venue, Lake Farmpark. They started their day with a first touch where they held hands while standing around the corner from each other and privately recited their vows. For the ceremony, Alexis and her dad rode up in a beautiful horse drawn carriage! It was such a magical moment! After the ceremony, we took pictures with the families, the wedding party, and the couple themselves.

Then it was time for the reception fun to begin! After the announcements, they did the cake cutting and had emotional first and father/daughter dances. The best man and maid of honor did the toasts which was followed by a fantastic meal. Then everyone went on to enjoy the festive event for the rest of the evening.

Congratulations Alexis & Noah! I enjoyed photographing your beautiful wedding and wish you both all the best in your lives together!

Alexandra & Luke: The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake https://www.sarafossphotography.com/blog/2023/10/alexandra-luke-geneva-on-the-lake-lodge August 25, 2023

Alexandra & Luke: The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake

The night before their wedding had some strong storms that resulted in a few tornados touching down throughout NE Ohio. The venue lost power for a few hours but it, luckily, came back on in the early morning. The day itself was predominantly overcast but they did have a sliver of color in the sky and some amazing clouds for sunset!

The day started with getting ready pictures with the bride and groom. Then Alex had a first look with her father, followed by one with Luke. After the first look, the couple read their private vows to one another. This was followed by couple, wedding party, and some family pictures. 

Their ceremony was officiated by Alex's grandfather and was very personal and emotional. There was a moment when Luke fought off a bee that had been flying around that led to some laughter but for the most part the ceremony resulted with many people in tears. After the ceremony, the couple did a few more family and couple pictures and then went inside to enjoy the rest of cocktail hour and mingle with their guests.

After being announced into the reception, Alex and Luke had their first dance. This was followed by the mother-son dance, the father-daughter dance (which was an amazing, choreographed dance to bits of several songs), the cake cutting, several wonderful toasts, and dinner. After dinner, the couple and wedding party came outside for a few sunset & gazebo pictures. Then it was time to go back inside and dance for the rest of the evening!

Congratulations Alex & Luke! It was my pleasure to photograph your wonderful wedding! May your life together be filled with incredible moments and memories! Here are a few of the images they will receive.

Amber & William: The Mecca Barn

It was a beautiful summer day for Amber & William's wedding - warm and sunny! I met Amber & William a couple years ago while photographing her sister's wedding. Their day started with getting ready pictures at The Mecca Barn (bride and girls) and at a private residence (groom & guys). In the early afternoon the bride and groom did a first look followed by pictures with the wedding party and a few of just the couple. Then it was time for the ceremony which was in a separate building on the property. Afterwards, we took all the family pictures along with a few more of just the bride and groom.

Following the grand entrance into the main barn to kick off the reception, they immediately did their first dance. That was followed by toasts by the maid of honor and best man. Then it was time for dinner - which was delicious! The cake cutting, bouquet toss, and garter toss were next. Around sunset, I pulled the couple aside for a few sunset pictures. The rest of the evening was filled with fun, laughter, and a lot of dancing!

Congratulations Amber & William! It was my pleasure to photograph your wedding day! I'm so happy for both of you and wish you and your family nothing but happiness and love throughout your lives together! Here are just a few of the many images they will receive.

Emily & Ben: St. Luke's Catholic Church & Georgetown Vosh

It was a beautiful sunny day for Emily & Ben's wedding! I met Emily when I photographed her sister's wedding in 2020. I'm always pleased and honored to be chosen to photograph another wedding in the family! The day started at the church where I took a few getting ready pictures of Ben & Emily before they did a first touch & prayer. Emily then did a first look with her father (and had one earlier with her bridesmaids). 

The ceremony was in the beautiful St. Luke's Catholic Church. You could see the emotions on both of their faces as Emily walked down the aisle! After the mass was over, they stepped outside to the cheers of their guests, kissed, and talk briefly with a few people before we took family pictures in the church.

I was very pleased they allotted a good amount of time for pictures before the reception! That allowed us to stop at Upper Edgewater Park to photograph a few by the Cleveland sign, Lower Edgewater Park near the large willow tree, and at a couple locations at Lakewood Park!

The reception started around 6:30pm with the bridal party being introduced, toasts, and prayer by Ben. There was an amazing array of food (all the fixings for tacos, 2 types of pasta, sandwiches, and more!) - and it was delicious! After dinner, they cut the cake and did the dances - Emily & her grandfather, Ben & his mother, Emily & her father, saving the first dance for last. Then they did the anniversary dance with Ben's parents holding the distinction of being married the longest! The DJ coaxed everyone onto the dancefloor for a fun group picture and then, with most of the formalities done, it was time to party! A bit later, the bouquet and garter toss were done.

Congratulations Emily & Ben! I enjoyed photographing your wonderful wedding and wish both of you a marriage filled with love, happiness, and blessings. Here are just a few images they will receive.

Alexandria & Samuel: Vell's Event Center

It was a beautiful day for this wonderful couple's vow renewal and wedding celebration! The day started at a nearby hotel for getting ready pictures and the first look. After that we drove over to Whipps Ledges in Hinckley Reservation for pictures in front of the large stones. They brought along their beautiful 3-week-old daughter as getting pictures with her was important to them. Before leaving the area, we took a few pictures with Alexandria's cathedral veil on in the field near the parking lot (I absolutely love the longer veils!). 

At the ceremony location, Alexandria did a first look with her parents before hiding away to freshen up. The ceremony was just outside the wonderful gazebo at the event center. There a few tears shed during the ceremony! Afterwards, we did all the family pictures along with a few more pictures of the bride and groom since the lighting was so nice. Following the grand entrance, toasts were given, and then table by table everyone enjoyed a delicious meal. After dinner, they did the cake cutting, first dance, father daughter dance, and the brides' parents danced to a special song. Lastly, they had the bouquet toss before the floor was opened for dancing!

Congratulations again Alexandria & Samuel! It was my pleasure to meet both of you and capture all your wedding memories. May your life together be filled with incredible memories! Here are just a few images they will receive.

Rachel & Jason: Coe Lake & The Belarusan Event Center

I first met this wonderful couple in February 2020. Due to the uncertainty in the world in the following months, they cancelled their big wedding plans and got married privately. We did an amazing 2hr couples photo session at Coe Lake in October 2020. I was pleased to hear from Rachel last year about their plans to have a vow renewal and celebration with their family & friends and excited to photograph it for them.

We all met at Coe Lake for their emotional first look and then went to a few areas of the park to take pictures. The rest of the wedding party joined us later (they were such a fun group!) and we took the remaining pictures. Once at the venue, Rachel did a first look with her father and then it was time for the ceremony! After the ceremony we took the family pictures. The grand entrance was next followed by the toasts, prayer, and a game of running around to get pictures with each table before 1-2 songs was up (this was really fun and produced some great images!). After a delicious dinner, they did the cake cutting followed by the first dance, parent dances and anniversary dance. The rest of the night was spent dancing and having fun!

Congratulations Rachel & Jason! It was a pleasure getting to know both of you. I wish you both all the best in your future together! Here are a few of the images they will receive.

Allyson & Nate: St. Adalbert Catholic Church & St. Demetrios Cultural Center

Although the day started out with rain (for good luck!) it did stop at just the right times - as the couple emerged from the church after the ceremony and right as we started taking the pictures at the park! I loved that they were prepared with umbrellas just in case!

The day started with getting ready pictures. After Allyson was ready, she did a first look with her stepfather prior to leaving the hotel. Once at the church, her and Nate had a very emotional first touch in a private corner of the church and briefly talked without seeing each other for a few minutes just before the ceremony. The ceremony was a full, traditional Catholic mass. You could see the love Nate has for Allyson as he watched her walk down the aisle! Immediately following the ceremony, we took family pictures inside the church along with a few bridal party and couple pictures before heading over to David Fortier River Park for more pictures with the covered bridge, river and bridge. It was the perfect location as they both enjoy being outdoors in nature. We even found a few remaining cherry blossoms on a tree!

After Allyson & Nate were introduced into the reception venue, they had the MOH, a good friend of the bride, and the best man give the toasts. Then it was time to enjoy a delicious meal! After dinner, they did the first dance and the parent dances. Then it was time to dance, have fun, and enjoy the party! The Postponements, a band Allyson is in, came on and sang a few songs. As a surprise to everyone, Allyson joined them on stage and sang "I Will Survive". She is an amazing singer! The guests loved listening to her and the band.

Congratulations Allyson & Nate! I'm so happy both of you had such a happy and fun wedding day! I wish you both all the best!

Here is just a sampling of the images they will be receiving!

Laura & Matt: Immaculate Conception Catholic Church & Historic Rt 20 Event Center

This was a fun wedding - in part because it was for family (Laura is my husband's cousin)! They also had an amazingly warm day for November - just a bit windy during pictures! I started the day at the Historic Rt 20 Event Center with Laura for getting ready pictures. Then we all left to go to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church where I was able to get a couple pictures of Matt prior to the ceremony. The ceremony was emotional and joyful! After the ceremony, we took family pictures and a few pictures of the couple at the altar.

They decided to take their wedding party and couples portraits in the field behind the Historic Rt 20 Event Center which is really nice and it saved them time allowing us to take more pictures during this period. It was a really fun group to photograph!

They were announced into the reception around 5pm. This was followed by dinner, a brief welcome/thank you speech by Matt, and the cake cutting. A delicious dinner followed. After dinner, they did the toasts, dances, and the bouquet toss! Then it was time to party and enjoy the rest of the evening!

Congratulations Laura & Matt! It was my pleasure to photograph your beautiful wedding. I wish you both nothing but happiness and love throughout your lives together! Here are just a few of the images they will receive.

Rachel & Ian: Ravenwood Castle https://www.sarafossphotography.com/blog/2022/12/rachel-ian-ravenwood-castle October 16, 2022

Rachel & Ian: Ravenwood Castle

It was a gorgeous fall day for this wonderful couple's wedding at the amazing Ravenwood Castle! I met the couple at the venue and we started with a few getting ready pictures. An emotional first look followed in the back of the castle by the hedge maze. This was followed by pictures with the wedding party (which including the brief appearance of a dragon)! Portraits of the couple began at the chess set where they started a game but, unfortunately, there wasn't enough time for them to complete it.

The ceremony took place in front of the castle. It was a beautiful pagan handfasting ceremony and the majority of the guests came dressed in medieval garb for the occasion. Family pictures took place immediately following the ceremony.

The bride changed into a new outfit prior to their grand entrance into the reception. Toasts followed and then a delicious dinner was served. After dinner the couple did the shoe game and cut one of several cakes available. The dancing was held outside on the back patio. Rachel & Ian did a wonderful choreographed dance. This was followed by the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance which led right into everyone dancing!

Congratulations Ian & Rachel! Thank you for choosing me to photograph your amazing wedding! I wish both of you all the best in your lives together! Here are just a few of the images they will receive.

Michelle & Michael: The Gish Barn https://www.sarafossphotography.com/blog/2022/11/michelle-michael-the-gish-barn September 24, 2022

Michelle & Michael: The Gish Barn

It was a beautiful early fall day for the wedding of this wonderful couple! Tim met up with the guys at the groom's house for a few getting ready pictures and to capture the group enjoying a few drinks and playing a few games of cornhole while I met up with the girls for their hair & makeup pictures at The Gish Barn. 

Unbeknownst to the Michael, Michelle had planned for a "fake" first look with her brother in a wedding dress! His surprise, confusion, and laughter made for some great pictures and I think it also helped him to relax a bit. After Michelle was ready, she did a first look with her bridesmaids and her father. Then it was finally time for the real first look between Michael & Michelle! After that we took all the group wedding pictures, some of the bride & groom, and some family pictures.  

The ceremony was outdoors in a beautiful section of the property surrounded by trees. The officiant was a good friend of Michelle's and he elicited laughs and tears from those in attendance. After the ceremony, we finished the family pictures and then took a few more of the bride and groom.

They were introduced into the reception shortly after where they went right into their first dance immediately followed by the cake cutting, toasts, and a prayer. A delicious dinner followed. It had been cloudy most of the day, so I wasn't expecting a sunset but lo and behold they had a beautiful one! After a few sunset pictures, it was time for the father daughter & mother son dance. The bouquet and garter toss followed. The rest of the night was spent dancing and having fun!

Congratulations Michelle & Michael! I had so much fun photographing your engagement and amazing wedding! I wish you both a lifetime full of happiness and love! Here are just a few of the images they will receive.

Patricia & Michael: Our Lady of Angels & Avon Oaks Country Club

Outside of a few raindrops right after the ceremony (for good luck!) it was a wonderful day for a wedding! The day started with getting ready pictures before driving to the church for the ceremony at the beautiful Our Lady of Angels. The ceremony had tears and smiles... and ended with the newlywed couple being led out of the church by a bagpiper! After a fun bubble exit, we took family pictures in the church.

Wedding party and couples' pictures were taken primarily at the lagoon area behind the Cleveland Art Museum and at Lakewood Park... both had amazing spots for photos! 

After the grand entrance into the reception, Patricia & Michael cut the cake and then went right into their first dance. The toasts by the bride's father, the maid of honor, and the best man followed. Then it was time for some delicious food! After dinner, the father/daughter, mother/son, and anniversary dances took place. The rest of the evening was spent dancing and having fun!

Congratulations Patricia & Michael! I enjoyed meeting this amazing couple and photographing their engagement and wedding images! I wish them both all the best in their lives together. Here are just a few of the images they will be receive.

Kelsey & Lonnie: The Shipyards

It was a beautiful sunny and hot day for this wonderful couples wedding in Lorain, Ohio! The day started out with a few getting ready pictures with the Kelsey. Then it was time for the first look (I love these)! After their first look, the couple read their personalized vows to each other in front of the wedding party and some family members. It was very emotional! Then we went outside for pictures with the wedding party and the couple.

The ceremony followed. It was fun to see one of their groomsmen tossing goodies to a few guests as he walked down the aisle!  Another fun moment was when Lonnie got into a football-type huddle with all the groomsmen before saying "I do"! All in all, it was a beautiful ceremony! Following the ceremony, they had all the guests go outside for a bubble exit. While the guests went back inside to find their seats and get a drink, we took the family portraits. 

After the grand entrance, the toasts were given by the best man and maid of honor. This was followed by dinner and then all the special dances. Cake cutting, bouquet toss, and garter toss happened later in the night. When all the formalities were done it was time for a lot of dancing and having fun!

Congratulations Kelsey & Lonnie! It was a pleasure to be a part of your special day. I wish you all the best as you continue on your journey in life together! Here are just a few of the many images they will receive.
