Laura and Matt had such a fun wedding day at The Vineyards at Pine Lake, and it was the perfect way to kick off Memorial Day weekend! I met Laura and Matt through their friends Heather and Luke, whose wedding I also photographed a few years back. Laura and Matt just bought a new home in Medina, but Laura's mother lives near Youngstown, thus how they discovered this fantastic new venue! Claire joined me for the day so that we could photograph both Laura and Matt equally as they got ready and capture a variety of viewpoints throughout the festivities.
The Vineyards at Pine Lake made for a gorgeous backdrop for every event throughout the day, with its expansive lakefront view, rolling vineyards, a swing (!), and so much more. Laura and Matt did their first look in the vineyard itself, and we took advantage of the gorgeous rows of vines for the rest of their bridal party portraits as well. After that, Laura and Matt's ceremony took place next to the lake. As cocktail hour began indoors, we couldn't resist the beautiful golden hour light, and did a few more portraits outside. Following cocktail hour, Laura and Matt's reception began with a delicious buffet dinner, two incredible and hilarious toasts, and lots of dancing! I had an absolute blast shooting Laura and Matt's wedding, and their family and friends had a great time celebrating with them as well. Below are a few favorite images from their day!
