Happy Go Lucky Photography for Couples in Love

Ashley + Kevin Happy Days Lodge Wedding, Cleveland Wedding Photographer

It's Ashley and Kevin's big day!  Ashely and Kevin had a beautiful spring wedding at Happy Days Lodge in Penninsula, Ohio. The day was full of Love and Joy, … and oh yeah, a little rain, but that didn't stop the fun one bit. Ashley and her talented mom created all of the pretty decorations. The sunny yellow and meadow flowers were oh so perfect. The bottom photo is Grandma's Strawberry Icebox Jam…  One of the greatest perks of a wedding photographer… Ice Box Jam!…..

Ashley's family has a really talented eye for artistic style.  Pictured here is her Dad and family members hanging a backdrop behind the head table that the family created! All of the embroidery hoops and lace came from Amish country. They scouted all over for the best lace designs for this piece! Isn't it fab?

Ashley and her bridesmaids were so fun and sweet getting ready…. Ashley, you have the prettiest smile and dimples…. Kevin sent over a letter that had Ashley in tears and giggles… Check out the hangers for the dresses... Artistic Ashley strikes again!

A first Look for Dad…. 

Happy Days Lodge has a huge porch that is amazing for weddings…. We could hear the sound of the rain during the wedding, it's so romantic…...

We rolled with the rainy day, and had the formals in the hall. A festive good time was had by all.  The kissing parents shot gets me every time...

All rainy weddings have that magical spot in the day when the rain stops for a bit, so we headed out into downtown Peninsula  with this fun crew...

On the way back from our bridal party field trip, I spied this groovy underground tunnel . You can be sure If its interesting and groovy, I'm shooting a wedding portrait in it….

The rest of the night flew by with tons of love, laughter, dancing, cake cutting and the shoe game…. Mara, Genevieve and I had so much fun capturing it all..
