Jon and Taylor tied the knot at Sun Valley in late September, and their day embodied so many of my favorite things: a beautiful venue, perfect early fall weather, a fun wedding party, and most importantly, an incredibly sincere and kind couple.
My assistant Allison began the day with Jon and his groomsmen as they got ready at The Bertram Inn in Aurora, while I started the day at Sun Valley in Chagrin Falls with Taylor as she got ready with her mother and bridesmaids. Jon and Taylor did portraits with their respective sides of the wedding party separately before their ceremony to save time later. They also each took a few emotional moments to read handwritten letters they had written for each other. Jon and Taylor's ceremony took place in the late afternoon next to Sun Valley's lake, and it was full of tears, emotion, and so much love. Cocktail hour began shortly afterward, and we finished family and couple portraits under the trees and next to the lake.
Jon and Taylor's reception kicked off with their entrances, first dance, and cake cutting, followed by toasts and a blessing by Jon's mother. After dinner, the dance floor was packed to celebrate these two! I snuck Jon and Taylor outside for a few last night shots in the gazebo, featuring the full moon in the background, before finishing up for the night.
Jon and Taylor were such a joy to work with, and I am so happy for them both. A few favorites from their day are below!
