Gabby and Joey's Wedding
Brilliantly Beautiful

Wedding Ceremony at St. John Bosco, Parma Hts. | Wedding Reception at Woodside Event Center, Broadview Hts. After one of the most sweltering July’s I have ever experienced, August 2019 started with an impeccable day for Gabby and Joey’s wedding. There was not a cloud in the sky, the sun was absolutely glorious, and the temperature mimicked a mid-September day. Gabby and Joey are exactly as pictured…beautiful people inside and out, and one...

Jessica and Scott's Wedding
A Timeline Twist

A Music Box Supper Club Wedding Jessica and Scott are such a cool and alluring couple. When I first met them, I was so impressed how they did not want a typical wedding. After sharing their vows, they desired to spend substantial time with their friends and family right away to commemorate their day, so literally everyone could enjoy every minute. Most of the portraits would then be taken during golden hour lighting, when the sun is lower in the...

Richelle and Karl's Wedding
Rain On Your Wedding Day? No Worries.

Wedding Ceremony at Heartland Community Church | Wedding Reception at Woodside Event Center Richelle and Karl are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Their kindness just radiates. We have shared many treasured moments with them the last two years, including their 2018 engagement session (click here to view the blog). So, the last thing we wanted on their wedding day was a steady rain, but as we discuss at every wedding...

Grace and Peter's Wedding
February in the Flats

Wedding Ceremony at St. Charles Borromeo | Wedding Reception at Windows on the River We initially met Grace and Peter at Jessica and Mark’s 2017 wedding.  Jessica and Grace are cousins, so it was delightful for us to be surrounded by family and friends. It’s uncommon for a Cleveland February to provide such epic outdoor backdrops for our couples, but Grace and Peter’s day was nothing short of stunning and the weather was unseasonably...

Courtney and Keith's Wedding
A Masquerade with Michael Myers

A Cleveland Halloween Wedding There is just something about Halloween that makes a perfect wedding. Going into the 2018 season, we had one key date open…October 27. There was a reason for this, as we met Courtney and Keith at the Michaud’s Bridal Show and literally had instant chemistry. Their personalities, enthusiasm and charm were so appealing. When Courtney told me the wedding was going to be a masquerade theme, we were sold. There is...

Having met Zack at a previous wedding, and starting the season off with a late winter engagement...
