It was another 90-degree day, but it was a great day for Northeast Ohio wedding photography when Stephanie Soduk and Jeff Fowler tied the knot on July 14, 2018!
Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls, but before that, we got some great shots at High Bridge Glen Park, which is right next to the Sheraton and has an amazing history.
From there, we high-tailed it back to the Sheraton to escape the heat, where we created fabulous photos on the formal staircase in the hotel. After family formals, it was time for the ceremony, which was beautiful with a lot of family and friends in attendance.
The simple but elegant ceremony transitioned into the cocktail hour that took place around the lobby overlooking the gorge (the views were amazing!). After cocktails and dinner, Stephanie and Jeff were introduced for their first dance. The dance floor remained festive and full the rest of the night … until it was announced that the legendary Swensons Food Truck was parked outside and everyone was encouraged to grab a Galley Boy Burger, shake, and fries. Needless to say, it was a wonderful evening enjoyed by all!
