Mary and Patrick were surrounded by close friends and family as they exchanged vows at one of the loveliest ceremony locations we’ve had the opportunity to photograph. They opted to see each other before the ceremony which allowed us to take full advantage of the beautiful grounds at Stan Hywet Gardens in Akron, Ohio (one of the most helpful, organized staff we’ve worked with). Patrick’s reaction is exactly why we love first-looks — it’s such a sweet time for the bride and groom to share, to have a moment alone and really relish in the day. Such a classy couple — and how adorable is that flower girl?! Thank you for inviting us to celebrate with you, Mary and Patrick!
