Christina and Sam’s Akron Art Museum Wedding Reception is here! If you missed their Akron Art Museum Ceremony from last year, click the link to catch up and see their doodle pups!
This short event was still every part grandiose and elegant! I adore this space, especially for how clean the look is. From a photographer’s perspective, it’s such a fun vibe and the windows helped make the reception flood with natural light. Plus there are so many vantage points you can capture images. The multiple-story foyer looking down at the reception space allowed me to tap into a multitude of creativity! And finally, the rainbow wall surrounding the dance floor I’ve fallen in love with before (see here for how Nicole + Tyler also used it!).
Eileen, the wedding planner, made the space feel formal and light. From their linens to the cake topper to even that beautiful mirror rental! All the rentals blew me away and tied together so nicely I wanted to cry with happiness looking back.
Leaf grew these unique, perfectly colored florals! Even though they were amazing for Fall, their color scheme is year-round magic! The bouquets on the tables were stylish and classic and the draped greenery throughout made it feel like an enchanting fairytale!
Christina and Sam had two incredible wedding celebrations. The first although intimate shed so much light on who they were as a couple, and what they love. Their reception a year later did the same but on a larger scale. Those invited had nothing but love and happiness for these two. Their generosity whether chatting with family, guests, or even a vendor is unmatched.
My favorite part? How it felt like a reunion. I rarely get to capture couples multiple years in a row, and it was such an honor to be a part of this beautiful love, twice! // xo
