Kaitlyn & Kevin on the Marquee at the Akron Civic Theater

In complete contrast to our first wedding of the 2022 season and the weather that was thrown our way, Kaitlyn and Kevin’s stunning spring wedding at St. Bernard Parish in Akron was as beautiful and perfect as anyone could have possibly dreamed of. Ideal temperatures, sunny skies, cherry blossom petals and love in the air…

Kaitlyn & Kevin's Stunning Spring Wedding at St. Bernard Parish - Premiere Gallery

Moments Before the Ceremony

Walking into the St. Bernard Parish in downtown Akron on a sunny midday in late April is something that is hard to forget. The interior is unbelievably breathtaking, with ornate statues, murals, stained glass and other stunning features. It truly is something to behold. There are old stairwells and woodwork throughout the church as well, and they all add to the richness of the overall space – and what better space for our beautiful bride Kaitlyn to get ready and to have her sister and mother help her?

While the bride was getting her finishing touches applied, Kevin was patiently waiting on the other side of the church, preparing to marry the love of his life. He got to share a tender moment with his mother just before the ceremony.

Simply Stunning

After a beautiful ceremony and mass, we couldn’t wait to capture some shots of the new Mr. & Mrs. in this unbelievable space. The lighting, the personality, and the intricacies of the church all are represented in these shots of our gorgeous couple.

A Marquee Couple

When it’s your wedding day, you pull out all the stops, and you want to tell the world – maybe even shout it from the rooftops.

What if you could just put it on the marquee of the Akron Civic Theater?

That’s exactly what Kaitlyn and Kevin did. We also managed to snag a really cool shot of the grand staircase inside. We were in and out in a few minutes. These two were awesome and were all about running around Akron for some awesome wedding photos.

The Beauty of A Spring Wedding Day

The colors of spring were beginning to show themselves around downtown Akron, so we took our couple to a gorgeous little outdoor spot to capture the essence of their day. The blossoms of the trees were a perfect backdrop for a beaming new bride and her new husband, and they even matched the bridesmaids dresses too!

Before the Reception Kicks Off...

After making several stops around Akron for a nice variety of photos of Kaitlyn and Kevin and the bridal party, we headed on over to the place where the party would continue.

Before cocktail hour began, we took a few moments to grab some shots of the details of the space which was decorated beautifully. We even slipped the bride and groom in for a quick photo on the dancefloor before all the guests were allowed to enter.

Guy’s Party Center and their staff did a wonderful job all evening long.

Dreamy First Dance as Man & Wife

When a husband and wife have a real connection, you can see it and sense it. They share a body language, an energy. The glances they steal last a little longer. The touches are a little gentler. These two have an unmistakable connection, and it’s written all over their faces.

Just look at how these two are looking at each other. They are lost in each other, and it’s wonderful.

These are the little moments between two other human beings that are so relative to us all, and it’s such a beautiful thing to witness. We never take these moments that we capture for granted. That’s how special each and every moment like these are.
