Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls Ohio Wedding

Amber and Nick had been best friends for a long time before he popped the question, so it was easy to feel like both sides of the family were already part of one big happy family throughout the wedding day. When they opened each other’s gift to one another, or the moment Amber began to walk down the aisle, the tears of joy were flowing from Amber AND Nick! Their ceremony was filled with laughter and warm familiarity with one another, and the celebrating that began as soon as cocktail hour started lasted long into the evening when Swensens, an Akron tradition, and family favorite, stopped by for an after-tizer.

Amber was probably one of the most organized brides we have ever worked with! She knew exactly what she wanted (complete with lists) and she rocked every last detail! Amber and Nick’s wedding was all at Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls, so it was much easier to accomplish a list of shots when there was time to photograph them! Not having to run from ceremony venue, to portrait location, to reception venue can save time on a wedding day and also helps the coordination of the day run smoothly without a wedding planner. We loved all of Amber and Nick’s Kate Spade inspired bright color choices!  On a side note: the staff at the Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls is wonderful!

The warm mid-day sun made Amber’s colors just pop during outdoor portraits, and the Sheraton property provided lots of modern backdrops for more formal shots inside. Photography in an around such a large venue meant that we could enjoy a relaxed pace for portraits while still capturing everything on Amber’s list. The stunning crystal chandeliers and uplighting really illuminated the reception in such an elegant way. At the end of the evening, we snuck out of the reception for some last-minute portraits with the sun setting. It is so fun to take little breaks throughout the day for pictures because the light is truly different outside as the day progresses and it’s possible to have such a lovely variety of portraits (if the schedule permits)!

Thank you both for such a gorgeous wedding and for giving us the privilege of capturing your special day!
