Blue Heron Event Center Wedding, Medina, Ohio | Kristen + Stephen

If you need a hidden wedding venue in Medina, look no further than Blue Heron. This old golf course turned event center is cradled in some gorgeous grounds. With a perfect view of the sun setting, Kristen and Stephen said their vows alongside their family and friends and then partied the entire night away.

First and foremost, I’ve known Kristen’s family for around 10 years. Apart from capturing occasions, I even enjoyed roaming Cleveland during a few bar crawls with them back in the day. So when Kristen was engaged, I may or may not have yelped a little louder than normal with excitement! After meeting Stephen, and watching them interact together, you could feel the joy that surrounds their love. Their mothers actually take full credit for this love match, and by golly did they nail it!

Of course then, family would play a huge part on their wedding day. Kristen’s brother sang, her aunt baked, her other brother designed the paper products, and all of her uncles brought Polish music to the dance floor. Scroll down to see this band, and feel the absolute bliss of the polka!

Additionally, I must also note Kristens love for ranch dressing. Here is your friendly reminder (bride or groom) to eat what you want on your wedding day. This bride enjoyed a personal pizza with ranch dressing. Snaps for her! // xo
