Wedding at Vell’s Event Center, Medina, Ohio

At their engagement session (seen here), I really bonded with Kat and Jason. So much, I started calling them my cousins. So when their wedding day, October 28, 2023, started out cold and overcast with misty rain, I felt so bad for them. But, shortly after their first-look reveal at Carol Ludwig Mugrage Park in Medina, the clouds parted, the sun illuminated the fall colors, and it warmed up 15-20 degrees…setting the stage for their outdoor ceremony. A perfect, blessed fall day!

The stage was Vell’s Event Center in Medina, and their gorgeous gazebo venue, lined with rose bushes and a dramatic tree-lined backdrop. Vell’s is such a wonderful venue with some of the best food and bakery in town. Vell and Dobrila are the nicest, most caring owners, who truly adore their couples.

On a side note, kudos to Jason for the best champagne pop of my career. Make sure to check out three of those pictures below. A big shout out to our friends and colleagues DJ Kevin Ward of Midnight Music and Videographer Coree Miracola of LOML Impressions. The Dream Team!
