Stan Hywet Estate Wedding, Akron, Ohio: Vanessa + Zack

They braved the torrential downpour. Still in love, still happy, still with smiles on their faces, even though it didn’t look like what they envisioned.

Stan Hywet is a 1911-built estate and it served as the backdrop for Vanessa and Zack’s Akron, Ohio wedding. I’m not sure if I’ve seen a happier, more radiant couple, and Stan Hywet was the dreamiest place I’ve ever photographed!

I flew to Ohio from Birmingham, Alabama and didn’t expect it to be a very interesting place. But I stepped onto the estate and was immediately proven wrong! I could’ve spent hours photographing the scenery and flowers across the grounds and am thankful to have spent some time there.

Vanessa and Zack, I hope beginning your marriage in the Big Apple is full of fun, joy and adventure — just like you two!
