This past September I had the opportunity to photograph the Wedding of Tim and Brittany in Westlake, Ohio. I have known Brittany for many many years from riding the same school bus together in High School to going to the same youth group at church. I was very honored and grateful to be able to capture her big day.
As with most weddings, the preparation is one of the most important pieces to kick off the big day. Even in a crowded hotel room, there were some great moments captured and some nice set ups for those every special detail shots.
The weather ended up being absolutely perfect and we were able to have their first look take place at the place they had their first date - Starbucks. This particular Starbucks is very busy and constantly bustling with people going in and out throughout the outdoor shopping plaza. My wife was able to shuttle over to the Starbucks with Tim while I rode over with Brittany. We were able to discreetly set the whole thing up, and while there were a lot of people watching the whole scene play out, Tim and Brittany were taking the moment for themselves.
The ceremony and reception took place at Wagner's of Westlake, a venue well suited for both weddings and receptions alike. The hall was beautifully decorated and set for the big event.
After the big "I do," it was time to party with the reception in full swing. Music, food and dancing followed as a great day came to a close and the newly weds ended their night with one last photo.
