ThornCreek Winery –

ThornCreek Winery is a beautiful winery & garden located in Aurora, Ohio. We photographed Katja & Evan’s Wedding there in August. Katja and Evan’s cocktail hour took place in the ballroom and their wedding reception was a tented elegant set up close by. Later that year David Thorn, owner of ThornCreek, invited us back for a vendor appreciation dinner. Their wine so good! Be sure to try the ‘Red Blend” that was our favorite!

White Rose Barn

The White Rose Barn is located in North Lawrence, Ohio. It is SUCH A DREAM venue!

Parker Wedding Barn – Copley, Ohio

One of my favorite venues! Norma (the owner) is one of the sweetest ladies I know. She invests 110% into making this venue a dream come true for every bride. She is passionate about making a personal and wonderful experience for her couples. This venue comes with bride & groom getting ready suits, several ceremony locations, portrait locations, and of course reception hall. This property has an overload of stunning photo spots! You will LOVE this venue once you meet Norma, and see how beautiful the property is. Check out Jessica & Neil’s Wedding blog post at the Parker Wedding Barn.

Gervasi Vineyard – Canton,Ohio

This location never disappoints! If you want to feel like you are getting married in Italy, this is the place for you! It is such an AMAZING location! The wedding and engagement sessions I have done here are all top favorites. They even have places to stay over night so you and your families can all be together.

Weymouth Country Club – Medina, Ohio

This country club is a perfect for the elegant bride! There is an amazing view of the golf course right outside the resection hall. We had great spots for photos all day long. A wedding here is dreamy.

Acacia Clubhouse – Lyndhurst, Ohio

A great venue if you need seating for 300 people. This venue is seated on a BEAUTIFUL park. There are endless spot for great photos! Such an elegant and stunning venue!

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens – Akron, Ohio

This venue is a timeless classic! Not only do they have a mansion on the property but also have tons of gorgeous gardens everywhere you look. The whole property is around 70 acres. If you are worried about rain on your wedding day, they have a spectacular green house to take pictures in.

Kingwood Center Gardens in Mansfield Ohio

Kingwood Center Gardens is another luxurious wedding venue in Northeast Ohio. There are so many gorgeous places for photos. My favorite part of this venue is their different reception options. They have the standard classic indoor dining and they also have an adorable outdoor patio! This patio is stringed with lights over head for that perfect intimate summer wedding.
