Portage Country Club Wedding, Akron, Ohio | Katie + Blaine!

WELP, round two from my 2019 of “capturing work friends from that high-school era of mine”.

Thank you for indulging me in that intro – haha – here is a better one:

This girl, good golly, is a light to all humanity.
Her soul is pure, through and through and yes she found a match in Blaine, who equally exudes in the light she gives! Plus, if that isn’t enough, I’m fairly certain I knew Katie was my kind of bride when she chuckled at my response to her and Blaine running late to our venue meeting: “Good, I had to pee anyway!” 🙂

But for their wedding, gosh darn did we have a grand ole time. We had a little bit of everything involved:
with an old fashioned car, driven by her brother,
a gorgeous downtown Akron skyline,
Bubbles, Beer and  Swenson’s,
a beautiful church ceremony,
a tip top notch bridal group,
some (DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!) country club wedding decor, and

I really can’t put these two into words that would work best. Watching them interact was an honor, and being able to capture the happiness they share is an insane blessing.

If Fall could have an anthem, I know it would have these two in it – full of bar hopping, soccer playing, and some crazy dancing with family.

Just go on and scroll my friends. Scroll 🙂 // xo Mariss
