As a Northeast Ohio wedding photographer, I’ve documented weddings as many gorgeous venues. But when Vivian and Steven told me they were planning to say “I do” at the Metro at the 9’s rooftop 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, Metro at the 9 was glamorous, sensational, and sophisticated.
As the bride was doing her touch ups surrounded by her bridesmaids, I couldn’t help but marvel at how bright the getting ready space was! With its sheer curtains and cool chandelier, it was perfect for taking photos! And the groom’s prep room was equally great! I always advise couples to find a space with lots of windows and Metro at the 9 absolutely delivered.
When we arrived for the ceremony, I was thinking this is gonna be beautiful! Not only did it perfectly suit the dream of a blush inspired rooftop wedding day Vivian and Steven had described to me from day one, but it also surprised me with the most amazing back drop of cityscape.
There was definitely no shortage of incredible spots for portraits at the Cultural Gardens, that’s for sure! From the photos we took in the Hungarian gardens to the ones on the rooftop after the ceremony, Vivian and Steven 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 into high gear and the guests hit the dance floor, the reception space felt party hearty! Vivian and Steven’s wedding celebration was fun, beautiful, and full of love! Congratulations, you two on your marriage, and I wish you both the 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!”
