Angela and Kyle met while working in the restaurant industry. Their grill side banter blossomed into a beautiful relationship, with Kyle now being the Executive Chef at The Marble Room Steaks and Raw Bar, one of Cleveland’s most breathtaking and historic buildings.

The backdrop for their wedding ceremony was also glorious, offering floor to ceiling grand windows and multiple vantage points. For their portrait session, I felt we needed a majestic location with a great assortment of scenes, and there is no better than the Coulby Mansion with its sea of yellow flowers and giant pillars. But we made sure to bring out our “Rising Star” fun with the bridal party, including a surprise ugly tie reveal that you had to see to believe.

Angela and Kyle had many original elements at their reception, including a make-your-own s’mores bar, and a cotton candy machine that stole the show. Combining all this deliciousness, and an adorable couple so in love, is a recipe for greatness!
