Every wedding day is uniquely beautiful, but as a wedding 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 Lorenda Howell Events planned for Kristin and Paul. Bringing their vision to life. But there are some wedding days that I’ll never forget. Because of the couple chose vendors that turned a wedding day into a classic celebration. And that was certainly the case with Kristin and Paul’s Stambaugh Auditorium and Waypoint 4180 wedding day!
Where to begin! The bride was radiant from the moment she arrived. But the way Icon Studio worked their magic made her downright jaw-dropping. I especially loved the way her hair was pulled up it gave that classic look that was iconic! And when Kristin slipped into her Paloma Blanca Bridal gown to complete the look, her bridesmaids loved on her with so much joy. Moments like this are what make the pre-ceremony time some of my favorites on a wedding day!
And the groom and his groomsmen in their Rondinelli Tuxedo tuxes looked exactly the classic and timeless look. It tied it all together.
As the celebrations began we headed to the primary ceremony venue. It would be impossible not to notice the epic floral arrangements created by Greens Floral Shop. From the greenery to the white roses the artistry on display was incredible.
How could I possibly forget to mention the mouthwatering food from Waypoint 4180! Believe me, it looked - and tasted - downright incredible. And don't get me started on the amazing cake from Dutch Haus! But this Youngstown wedding day wouldn’t have been complete without music. The vibes that got the couple, their family, and the guest out on the dance floor! And how awesome, to have a lit up dance floor provided by D and R Audio and Entertainment. Literally amazing! When the DJ did his thing, the guests couldn’t resist getting up to dance. The laughter in the air was irresistible. And I couldn’t help but laugh (and dance a little, too!) with them as I clicked away on my camera.
The work of the talented vendors can turn a heartfelt celebration into one that’s impossible to forget. That's definitely what happened on Kristin and Paul’s wedding day. I am so impressed that they were able to find so many amazing artists. The ones to bring their Stambaugh Auditorium and Waypoint 4180 wedding day vision to life. And I’m beyond grateful I was invited to document it all! Congratulations, Kristin and Paul, 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!”

“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!”
