Canton, Ohio Photography

 

The trip to Canton, Ohio for Lauren & Ryan’s wedding was more than just work for me. I’ve known Lauren since the good ‘ole days from Bethany College. The days where vows, growing up and paying bills weren’t anywhere near our mindset, but here we are now. After spending my time with the two in the fall for their engagement photo session, I realized how happy they were together.  As I finished editing their engagements a few weeks later, Lauren asked if I shoot maturity photos because they were expecting a little girl…

In just a short time from now, the Rante family will be adding one more to their clan — The beautiful Brielle Renee Rante to be exact.

 

Ceremony

The Rante wedding ceremony was held at the iconic and historical Old Stone Chapel in Canton, OH. A little background about the famed chapel, one of downtown Canton’s most historic wedding venues, was built back in 1886 and currently resides on the National Register of Historic Places, a designation it received in 1985.

 

Reception

After the couple said and agreed to their vows, everyone ventured off to the Northeast Ohio’s Premier Wedding Venue, The Historic Onesto. The reception venue was Voted Best Wedding Venue in About in 2015. It’s crystal chandeliers, cathedral ceiling and large windows that overlooked the bitter January cold.
