Jewish Wedding Celebration in Akron

Jewish Wedding Celebration in Akron

Taylor and Carly had their Jewish wedding celebration on Sunday. They had a perfectly planned timeline with the help of Eileen Benson and Bridal Consulting by Eileen and most of the day was scheduled to take place in the home of Carly’s parents, the home where Carly grew up. This was a masterstroke. Having most of the wedding day take place there siginficantly increased the intimacy of all of the wedding photos. It was not lost on me as their wedding photographer that the same rooms where she was preparing for her wedding day, and walking around in her wedding dress were the same rooms that she ran around in as a child.  It was such an honor to document this day.

Carly’s day started with her, her family and bridesmaids just hanging out. Because my wedding coverage is always all day, no time limits,  I could be there to document these important moments. One of my favorite Cleveland make-up artists, Lindsay London, showed up a little later to beautify all of the ladies. Carly was able to stay completely relaxed all morning because there was no rushing around and she was completely comfortable hanging out with her friends and family. When Lindsay arrived, Carly just had to sit down and get pampered.

Taylor arrived a bit later and finished up getting ready in the lower lever of the house. His parents and sister joined him for this. I absolutely loved this. Including his family increased the special nature of every moment for him. His father was able to help him out with details while his mother and sister looked on. Again, these pictures become more special to everyone because of this.

Carly and Taylor wanted to have a “first look”. I explain having a first look -HERE-.  We wanted to do the majority of the pictures outside, but it was oppressively hot and humid outside (Fire is symbolic of “Love” as discussed by Rabbi Sasonkin so we will chalk it up to all the love that was present on this day 🙂 ).  We decided to do the bare minimum of wedding pictures outdoors, some of which were the first look. This is always a powerful moment for the bride and groom and I’m glad that Taylor and Carly chose to do it. They also decided to have a first look with Carly and her father as well as Carly, Taylor and the bridal party. You can see these moments below.

After some traditional family photos it was off to the ceremony at the Revere Road Synagogue and their wedding reception at the Akron Fairlawn Hilton, and the second half of their day. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the morning and first half of their wedding day.
