Rainy, Akron Winter Wedding with Katrina and Rocco
I finished my 2018 wedding season with Katrina & Rocco’s gorgeous Akron Winter Wedding. We were all hoping for snow to complete their winter wonderland theme, but that didn’t happen. Good old Ohio decided to rain BUCKETS all. day. long. Katrina and the girls started the day at MC Hair & Spa sporting matching “Friends” themed shirts! Katrina was as cool as a cucumber, you wouldn’t even know it was her wedding day. After the salon, the girls got dressed at Katrina’s parents’ house. As soon as I saw her wedding dress, I fell in love. It was the PERFECT dress for a December wedding! Katrina looked so stunning and timeless, I knew Rocco was going to cry when he saw Katrina walk down the aisle. Sure enough, he did!
After the ceremony, the bridal party went to Firestone Metro Park for portraits. It was so wet and rainy, my plan was just to use umbrellas outside. We had about 15 minutes of light rain and everyone conquered through. Even with wet hair, muddy shoes, and a footprint on Katrina’s dress- the outdoor pictures were totally worth it! We arrived at the Tangier before the cocktail hour to get plenty more photos. After an outstanding dinner, Katrina & Rocco got the party started. Rocco did a few song collaboration to the garter removal- which was probably the best thing I’ve ever seen a Groom do! Dj Wolf had the crowd on their feet the whole night, and guests enjoyed the s’more bar, cookies & cheesecake. I loved being a part of this wedding-Katrina & Rocco are a perfect match!
Here are my favorites from their day: Enjoy!
