Alissa and Mike found the perfect location for their outdoor ceremony. When we met a few months before their wedding day, they were so excited they found the perfect venue. I couldn’t wait to see it!
Just south of Akron, Springlake Party Center is located in Lakemore, Ohio. Springlake provides a lovely backdrop with beautiful lakeside views. Along with the gazebo for the ceremony, the venue has landscaped grounds for portraits. (Definitely a big plus for the wedding photographer!)
Alissa got ready with her bridesmaids at the Marriott in downtown Akron. First, I started to document all the beautiful details. The glittery shoes. The sparkling bridal jewelry. And that bridal veil. It was extra special. Alissa’s mom had the veil made from her wedding dress. After we finished photos, I headed to ceremony. I caught up with the groom getting ready for the ceremony with his family.
With clouds overhead getting darker as the ceremony ended, we squeezed in the last portraits before the down pour. The rain didn’t matter. Even with the storm threatening overhead, Alissa’s sweet personality and Mike’s good sense of humor, they had the perfect wedding day.
It was a pleasure to document their moments and watch the day unfold.
