The colors down by where I live in Wooster haven’t quite popped yet, but as I was driving up to Medina I just keep seeing more and more colors! I was getting excited to have the fall colors ready for Julia and James’s wedding! I arrived to one of my favorite venues in Medina, The Lodge at Allardale. Let me tell you what it never disappoints. I would love to be here all day and have sessions.
I arrived to Julia and her girls doing some final touches before getting dressed up! Ya’ll these ladies are gorgeous and so much fun! Once the final details were taken and finished we got Julia into her beautiful dress, we made our way down to the pond for Julia and James’s first look! He smiles so big. He was so ready to see her and his face lit up! I usually do traditional route, most of my couples want this, but ya’ll I’m starting to warm up to it! I love that it gives an intimate time for you to chat and see each other before the ceremony. I think I may have my couples think about this more. We got bridal portraits, bridal party photos, and some family done in like 40 mins! The ceremony was beautiful and so sweet! These two sealed the vows with a perfect kiss and celebrated the night away!
I’m so glad I got to know this couple and I just love that a couple focused on family and friends and just celebrating with them is the most important things! Congrats you two on becoming Husband and Wife! Here are some sneak peeks before they get their gallery in full in just a couple more days!

“The photos that stand out to me most are the ones of my husband and I dancing the polka at our reception with my 93-year-old grandparents. I feel so fortunate to have had both of them in person at our wedding, let alone up dancing on the dance floor with us, even for a brief time. I still cry when I look at them. They will be so special to us in years to come.”
“Heather knew getting photos with my grandparents
was very important to me, and she delivered!“
- OKSANA F.
“However, what won me and my husband over was our first meeting with her. She was the most bubbly, pleasant, friendly, loving human being. We appreciated her warmth and her attention to detail. She was well-established, a wonderful planner, and she truly wanted us to have the greatest memories.”
“I loved her pictures. It was like love at first sight!”
- OLIVIA B.
“She has such a passion for her couples and capturing their true love story! It shows completely when she is snapping away. Her facial expressions and the gasps she makes when she takes a picture that she loves are just the best! We never had someone get as excited as her when taking pictures! And we love it!”
“Heather truly makes you feel like you are her
favorite couple ever to work with!”
