Hi! This blog is a great place to see highlights from weddings, which I think is more helpful than viewing a portfolio comprised of random favorites from a million different weddings. Please keep in mind that I deliver around 1,000 edited photos per wedding, so these posts are just 50-ish photos I liked from these weddings. Let me know if you'd like to see an entire wedding gallery—I'm happy to send you a link!
On a warm August day, Jackie and Ryan had a gorgeous Gervasi Vineyard Wedding in Canton, Ohio.
This was my first time visiting Gervasi Vineyard, and I was blown away by its breathtaking beauty. Jackie and Ryan are among the sweetest, most down-to-earth couples, and I was thrilled to be part of their big day.
Jackie and Ryan chose Gervasi Vineyard Canton Ohio, because they wanted a venue that felt like a vacation to their guests. Because of the pandemic, this was the first time they’d seen many of their loved ones, so they wanted the day to be fun and special for everyone. Whether you reside in or near Canton, or are looking for a premier wedding venue, Gervasi Vineyard is the perfect location for your wedding day!
Three wedding venues are available on the 55-acre estate to meet your ceremony and reception needs. The Pavilion is the signature wedding venue that can accommodate up to 300 guests and is available from May through October. Featuring an open-air structure, this location offers impressive views of the vineyard and lake. With its elegant ballroom and warm, welcoming atrium, The Villa Grande provides an indoor setting. This space can hold up to 120 guests. Couples seeking a more intimate setting will enjoy the Conservatory. Greenery surrounds this charming, tranquil greenhouse, accommodating up to 40 guests for ceremonies and receptions. This elite Tuscan resort is the perfect place for your wedding day.
Jackie and Ryan had their first look at the Conservatory. It was an emotional moment as they both saw each other for the first time. After Jackie twirled around for Ryan to adore how stunning she looked, they exchanged sweet letters. Laughter and tears galore!
They had a picturesque ceremony outside the Pavilion as their friends and family shared in witnessing them saying their vows. After their I Do’s, they drove off in a turquoise Corvette, which was fitting because Ryan is a car guy.
After taking photos of them walking through the vineyards, we headed to the reception. Jackie surprised Ryan with a motorcycle cake topper, and then they showed off their dance lessons during their first dance. Once they had dinner and a few loved ones said their speeches, they partied the night away.
During our first phone conversation, Jackie mentioned that she likes the direct-flash photography trend, so at the end of the evening, we found the perfect club chair for her and Ryan to sit in, and I brought her vision to life. I love when my couples share their wishes with me, and I can nail it for them!
I was so honored to photograph Jackie and Ryan’s Gervasi Vineyard Wedding Canton, Ohio.
