Wedding Day in Akron // Akron Wedding Photographers

For Drew and Jackie’s wedding day in Akron, good planning and logistics was essential. And they had plenty of that. A great, well thought out timeline , they had plenty of time to let their day unfold. I feel that your wedding day should reflect all that is important to you as a couple. For Drew and Jackie, family was a huge part.

Getting Ready for the Wedding Day

They both chose to get ready for their wedding day at their parent’s house. I LOVE decisions like this. Getting ready at home or at your parent’s house makes your pictures more special and intimate. It is a much more comfortable and a unique environment. Further, it’s ideal for pictures since that ambiance can be somewhat controlled.

Now this doesn’t come without challenges. Jackie got ready at her parent’s house in Parma and Drew at his parent’s house in Hudson. But this was easily handled. Since I have her at every wedding, I had my assistant, Kim, start with Jackie while she was getting her hair and make-up done while I documented Drew’s morning. Drew was a true champ in that he had to endure his wedding prep photos very early. But we are now more close to equity in the wedding day coverage. I discuss groom coverage -HERE-. Once I was finished with Drew, I headed to Parma to help Kim document Jackie getting ready. Putting on her dress and such.

A Wedding Day First Look

Jackie and Drew decided to see each other before the wedding ceremony. I’ve discussed having a wedding day first look many times. For them, it was a way to have an exceptional moment to themselves, and reduce the nerves a little bit. This was done right before their wedding ceremony and done at the church. Their first look had me getting emotional. Such a beautiful moment.

Wedding Pictures in Akron

After their wedding ceremony and some important family pictures at the church, we started off towards two of the locations that we designated for creative wedding pictures before their wedding reception at Greystone Hall. We first stopped at The O’Neil House in Akron. This was SUCH a great decision. Drew and Jackie had to check in before their reception anyway, and it fit right into the aesthetic of Greystone. We arrived at O’Neil House a little late, as is not unusual for a wedding day, and only had, literally, 15 minutes for wedding pictures before O’Neil House had another event. We did the best that we could and I’m very happy with the end result. I will post these images tomorrow when I post pictures from their wedding ceremony and their wedding reception at Greystone Hall.

Here are just a few of my favorites from the first half of their wedding day in Akron. I had so many favorites that it was extremely difficult for me to pick just a few. This is a testament to how great Jackie and Drew were all day.
