Every wedding day is uniquely beautiful, but as a Northeast Ohio photographer, there are just some celebrations that stick out in my memory in a special way. Sometimes it’s because of the breathtaking venue and other times because of the personality-packed celebration the bride and groom planned. But there are some weddings days that I’ll never forget because the couple chose vendors that turned a wedding day into a magical dream. And that was certainly the case with Renee and Bryan’s Gish Barn Fall wedding day!
Where to begin! The bride was radiant from the moment she arrived, but the way the stylist and makeup artist worked their magic made her downright jaw dropping. I especially loved the eyeshadow complimented her eyes and the lip color was just on key! And when she slipped into her gorgeous lace gown to complete the loop, her bridesmaids ‘awwww’ed’. Moments like this are what make the pre-ceremony moments some of my favorites on a wedding day!
And the groom and his groomsmen in their Men’s Wearhouse attire looked so spiffy!
As the celebrations began, it would be impossible not to notice the gorgeous floral arrangements created by Nikki’s Perfect Petals Design. From the centerpieces to the arch at the alter the artistry on display was incredible. And the smells!
And speaking of amazing scents, how could I possibly forget to mention the amazing food from Village Catering and the mouthwatering cake by Buehlers! Believe me, they looked – and tasted – downright incredible.
But no reception would be complete without music that gets the couple, their family, and the guests out on the dance floor! When His ‘N’ Hers DJ Service did what they do best, the guests couldn’t resist getting up to dance. The laughter in the air was irresistible and I couldn’t help but laugh with them as I clicked away on my camera.
The work of talented vendors can turn a heartfelt celebration into one that’s impossible to forget, and that’s definitely what happened on Renee and Bryan’s wedding day. I am so impressed that they were able to find so many amazing artists to bring their wedding day vision to life, and I’m beyond grateful I was invited to document it all! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Lamp, and I know your marriage will be just as beautiful as the day it began!

“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!“

“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!”
