[av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='']The cool autumn air rustled amongst the colorful leaves as everyone started to arrive for the wedding rehearsal. Jessica and Nicholas walked up to the meeting house, which is a beautiful white chapel building located within Hale Farm and Village to begin the practice run of what was sure to be an amazing outdoor ceremony.
After a few run-throughs of the ceremony, it was obvious that we were going to have some fun the next day.
I met up with Jessica at the Off Main Street Salon in Downtown Hudson to capture the start of the day. It’s always fun to see everyone getting ready and all of the preparation that has to happen before walking down the aisle.
Sarah and Lauren from the salon did a wonderful job with Jessica, her mom, and the flower girl. After the salon, we headed over to Hale Farm and Village located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to finish up preparations before the wedding. I spent some time gathering a variety of detail shots which was really fun to create given the rustic outdoor setting available.
The weather was gorgeous, not too warm, not too cold, and some amazing directional light to give everyone that sun-kissed glow.
Everything from the string quartet, pumpkins lining the aisle, to the music-inspired confetti congratulating the newlyweds, gave this wedding a particular fall charm that was unique and special for Jessica and Nicholas.
We followed the ceremony with some formal portraits and some one-on-one time with our new bride and groom. The reception was so much fun to capture. Jessica and Nicholas had a bonfire and smores bar which was a huge hit!
The evening ended was some beautiful long-exposure sparkler writing that their friends helped to make possible. An amazing day with an awesome couple.
Congratulations Jessica and Nicholas! [/av_textblock]
