I’m so excited to gush on these top 5 venues of 2019! They are not only beautiful, but the owners are awesome! There was so many venues in 2019 that were beautiful, but here are my top 5 that I had the luxury of photographing at and would love to meet and photograph more couples at these locations. Brides wouldn’t you want someone that knows your venues ins and outs of the perfect spots to take your photos.

1. Rivercrest Farm in Dover, Ohio is a drop dead gorgeous venue. It didn’t matter any area you were in it was still gorgeous. The lighting is perfect, so your photographer will drool and have ease finding places for your bridal party, family portraits, and bridal portraits. This place has a bridal suite for brides and for mens den for the groomsmen. Different layouts for your ceremony and the most beautiful barn for your reception lets you customize your perfect unique wedding to how YOU want it. It relatively stayed cool even in late August. It has openings in the barn that lets the most perfect breeze come in.

2. Buchwalter Greenhouse in Wooster, OH is a great venue to hold your ceremony and reception! This place lets so much light in and is the perfect winter location with the greenery of spring. Did you know they provide the plants? This location has a tiny room to get ready in. So keep in mind that a different off site location would be ideal for makeup and hair. But the room is doable! There are no rooms for the groomsmen. As you can see above, this location is sooo pretty and I truly enjoyed photographing here. The staff was pretty awesome!

Malabar Farm.jpg

3. Malabar Farms in Lucas, Ohio has so many gorgeous areas and the barn itself was jaw dropping. This venue features a pond, a white farmhouse, a stagecoach garage, a corncrib, and rolling hills. The corncrib was utilized where your caterer can serve food, but could easily have your caterer right inside the barn to the left.

4. Patterson Fruit Farm in Chesterland, OH features an awesome location for your ceremony. An overlook of a beautiful park field with a rustic elegant feel of reception location with a small porch overlook as well. This location also has an orchard of apples that would make another location for portraits. The owner is soo great! The coordinator is on top of things to make your day run smoothly.

Lodge at Allardale.jpg

5. The Lodge at Allardale in Medina, OH has another beautiful area for a ceremony location and that’s another overlook of trees which would be awesome in the fall. This place is perfect for smaller weddings. All the natural lighting in this place is sooo perfect! This place is like a canvas for your wedding!

Choosing your venue can be nerve wracking since it is a huge expense and will set the tone for your whole wedding. But once you find the perfect one your date is set and will feel so surreal! So excited that you’re taking this next step in both of your lives! I hope you find this info helpful in finding your perfect venue! Happy Planning!!

I couldn't recommend Heather any more highly! She has a true passion for what she does and it comes out in her photography session and end result. Communication is the best I've had with any service, and her turn-around time was even faster than expected. Her services are very reasonably-priced and she made the session really fun. Can't wait to see her again for the wedding day!

Heather was a great photographer and really made taking our pictures fun. You can tell she really loves taking photographs and doing what she does. She is very quick with getting the photographs back which is amazing. We had her do our engagement photos and our wedding day photos and it really was great. She helped us figure what poses to do because we did not know and they all turned out great. We focused on fall for both our engagement shoot and the day of the wedding and all the colors in the photos look amazing. She did a great job on staying with the schedule, and was willing to add photos we hadn't previously picked out. We had a list of photos we knew we needed and she let us take quite a few extras that weren't on the planned list. Heather really was amazing and everyone had a great time taking the photos.

I can’t say enough good things about Heather! She did an amazing job capturing our day. The pictures look absolutely beautiful and she had them to me in less than a week. I got so many compliments from family and friends about how great she was during the wedding. My husband and I really didn’t want to miss a lot of our wedding for taking photos and Heather was able to capture everything so quickly and totally painlessly! She also was incredible in getting back to with any questions throughout the whole wedding planning process. Thank you again Heather!
