I have a huge soft spot in my heart for this family.
They are some of the most kind and genuine souls to come out of the Akron area – and I’m sooo thankful that they continuously think of me to capture special moments!
So my dear dear Shannon – I cannot thank you enough for welcoming me into your love story with Jeff! I am forever grateful!
And yesss ma’am onto the details from this love story, because it was nothing short of spectacular!
It’s funny though because when most people think of an October wedding, you would think of Fall (tons of orange and yellow and red). BUT as you can see from these photos – Ohio decided to give us a little bit more of that gorgeous lush green! That coupled with the gorgeous lawns of Portage Country Club, set a perfect backdrop for this Akron wedding!
The people made this wedding truly perfect though!
And Samoa (their adorable pup!).
Shannon’s sisters and and mother helped her put on that simply elegant dress.
The gifts Jeff sent Shannon sent her into a million tears, while the gifts Shannon sent Jeff were a beautiful testament to their relationship (and growing-pup-loving family!).
The speeches were unique and filled with all the humor and love.
And this party?
GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY!
It was rockkkkkkin’!
People on the dance floor, taking pictures in the photo booth, or just anyone chatting it up by the bar were filled with so much joy and happiness!
It was an evening I never wanted to stop capturing.
Sooo basically I’m ecstatic that they moved back to town because I definitely lovee having a yoga and vino date!!
