Claire and AJ's amazing wedding at Pine View Acres in Massillon Ohio was truly spectacular. When Claire and AJ first locked their eyes, I bet they never could have imaged the beautiful adventure they were about to begin together. On top of that, certainly wouldn't have guesed that someday they'd be saying "I do" during a stunning Pine View Acres wedding celebration! But on a wonderful April day, Claire and AJ's family and friends gathered together. They gathered to celebrate the beginning of their new life together as husband and wife. And this northeast Ohio wedding photographer is beyond thrilled she landed an invite to document it all!
The morning was downright bursting with joy and laughter. Decked out in robes and fuzzy slippers, the bride and her bridesmaids, jammed to the best songs and sipping on mimosas. Meanwhile the groom and his groomsmen, hung out laughed and just having plain amazing fun. And when the boutonniere was pinned and the last curl was sprayed, we all headed off to the ceremony. As the stunning bride walked down to her forever best friend she had a glow about her along with the best first look. The look on AJ's face said it all when he saw her, it was unforgettable!
I was so amazed by the beautiful scene all the vendors painted with their talented work! From the stunning bouquet and boutonniere created by Nikki's Perfect Petal Design. To the amazing Youngstown cookie table the friends and family baked and brought to celebrate the newlyweds, it was all amazing. I couldn't help but photograph every last detail! One of the things I love the most about weddings is documenting the delicate details a couple has hidden throughout the day. At Claire and AJ's wedding day, I loved the way they picked out each others wedding band as a surprise and fed each other the zippy cookies since they graduated from Akron University.
But the uniqueness of their celebration didn't end there! The way the friends and family cheered these two was unlike anything!
And when Premium Entertainment cranked up the music and the guests flooded the dance floor, I couldn't help but capture every dance move!
I am so grateful I was able to document this Pine View Acres wedding day in all its magnificence, and it's a celebration I'm never going to forget! Congratulations, Claire and AJ, on the first day of your new life together! I can't wait to see you two again soon!

“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!”
