As a Northeast Ohio wedding photographer, I’ve documented weddings at many amazing venues. But when Kate told me they were planning to say “I do” at Brookside Farms I knew this was going to be a celebration to remember! From the moment we arrived until the newlyweds raced off into their happily ever after, Brookside farm was just breath taking.
As the bride had her hair and makeup done surrounded by her bridesmaids, I couldn’t help but marvel at how open the getting ready space was! With its neutral walls it was perfect for taking photos! It even had a salon chair. And the groom’s prep room was equally great! I always advise couples to find a venue where you will be able to get ready at or be able to hide in and Brookside Farm absolutely delivered.
When we arrived for the ceremony, I was in awe and just loved the arch! Not only did it perfectly suite the dream wedding day Kate and Mike had, but it also surprised me with the natural light and perfect layout the chapel was.
There was definitely no shortage of incredible spots for portraits, that’s for sure! From the photos we took by the bridge to the ones on the driveway to the venue are going to have a crazy hard time choosing which ones to print and hang in their home!
Then, off to the reception we headed! Once the party kicked in to high gear (thanks to Russell Sound Lab) and the guests hit the dance floor, the reception space felt so upbeat after everything we have been going through with the pandemic. It felt wonderful to see that again with social distancing! Kate and Mike’s wedding celebration was amazing, perfect, and downright fun. Congratulations, you two on your marriage, and I wish you the absolute best!

“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!”
