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

September 16, 2020

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!
