Matt and Claire’s wedding at the Akron Hilton West

by James ~ December 1st, 2009. Filed under: Akron Weddings.

As the winter season approaches, I’m reminded of just how different late fall and winter weddings look and feel from summer weddings. Winter sunlight takes on a whole different character as the sun scrapes across the horizon and cuts through the humidity free atmosphere. Last Saturday was a perfect example for Matt and Claire’s wedding. a beautifully clear day with just enough chill in the air to remind you what time of year it is. We got to make the most of the short amount of daylight we have this time of year then we headed to one of my favorite photo locations ever; the Akron Civic Theater. We got to squeeze in between performances of The Nutcracker and had free reign of the place for almost an hour. The historic and magnificently maintained theater provided a dramatic backdrop for photos. We then headed over to the Akron Hilton West’s Grand Ballroom for a fantastic reception with both a DJ and a live funk band.

Here are James’ favorite photos from the day:
