Greg + Deana | A Hines Hill Wedding in Cuyahoga Valley National Park

It was the first day that the temperatures had dropped just enough to remind us that fall was coming. Greg + Deana have built their life together. They have two precious kids (you’ll see quite a bit of them soon) who they spent all their most special wedding moments with. If you watch my instagram stories, you may have seen a couple of these photos already. One of my favorite moments of the day was when Greg surprised Deana with a painting of one of her favorite engagement photos. Her face was everything.

I often speak with my clients about the importance of not just the look of their wedding, but the feeling it leaves them with.

Greg + Deana’s wedding had all the elements to make a wedding day feel good. They spent the whole day on this gorgeous property, allowing plenty of time to spend with the ones they love most. I hope that when they look back at these images years from now, it brings them right back to the perfectly “just cool enough” day that they vowed to spend their lives together.

Venue | Hines Hill
Catering | Old Carolina Barbeque
Bride’s Dress | Galleria Gowns
Groom’s Tux | Men’s Wearhouse
Florals | The Petal Place
Desserts | Cake + Donuts
Calligraphy | The Bride
Painting | Melanie Domzalski
DJ | Cleveland Music Group
