Sara, or "Hutch" as she is known to her friends, prepared for her big day at the Residence Inn in Akron with mimosas and plenty of laughter. She soon met up with her groom Danny at Firestone Metropark for a first look, and despite the minor mishaps of forgetting the bouquets and veil back at the hotel, the two shared a sweet first look while blanketed by golden early summer sun. Sara and Danny were joined by the bridal party to take some group shots, before heading to Guy's Party Center in Akron for the ceremony and reception. Other than the bride and groom and their love, the star of the reception was the cheesecake! The groom's father made what appeared to be dozens of cheesecakes, and they were absolutely delectable. While the party raged on inside, we stepped outside for some nighttime portraits which demonstrated the "magic of photography". These gorgeous silhouette photos (scroll all the way down) where actually shot in an alley against the wall of a Giant Eagle. Who woulda thunk!? Congrats Danny and Sara. What a pleasure it was to spend the day with you!
