Performing Arts Center at Kent State Wedding- Chris and Morgan


Saturday was such a dream! I loved spending it with Chris and Morgan and their closest friends and family! I photographed Morgan’s cousin’s wedding in September, so it was so great to see some familiar faces!

The whole day was full of emotional moments. The first time Morgan’s dad saw his baby girl in her gown. When Chris read a touching letter from his bride. When the maid of honor could barely get through her toast. And the moment that broke me down: when Morgan’s dad spoke to his daughter about seeing her empty room that morning. CRY ALL THE TEARS.

There may have been some snags along the way, like the park we were going to do photos at being under construction, or the limo driver never showing up (word of advice: don’t hire Superior Limousine Transportation!!), or the sun being too bright to see the slideshow. But the weather was gorgeous, the bride and groom pulled off a killer coordinated dance, and I wouldn’t have changed a thing about it all!

Chris and Moran, thank you so so much for having me document your beautiful day! You both have the biggest hearts and it was such a joy to see your wonderful friends and family celebrate right alongside you!
