Lauren and Michael planned an amazing wedding celebration at Gervasi Winery with the ceremony taking place at St Vincent to incorporate both of the cities where they grew up. While Lauren is from Canton and Michael is from Akron, it took a fortuitous encounter some 400 miles away at an airport in New York for them to build a connection. Sadly it took yet another year before Michael finally picked up the phone to reconnect but the two have been inseparable ever since.
Interesting side story is that I’ve know Lauren’s mom, Deb, for over a decade from working at Williams-Sonoma. At the time I was dabbling in photography and enjoyed working along side other foodies like myself. I was thrilled when Deb called asking us to photograph this festive occasion for the family. James and I had an amazing time capturing the day and all the significant people and moments that played a part in it! Thanks for having us.
Some of James’ favorites:
The day was peppered with sweet family moments
A little urban in Akron
Stopped by an Akron staple for some quick pizza at Luigi’s
Then on to some nature in Canton at the vineyard
Michael’s brother and his fiance performed an amazing set. Those two are quite the musicians!

Here is a snippet of the vintage inspired custom stationery. Some lovely work on the day of stationery by Baci Designer.
The cake by White Flower looks almost too pretty to eat doesn’t it?
Congrats Lauren and Michael! You were such a fun couple to hang out with and we look forward to sharing the rest of the images.
