Wedding Ceremony at St. Basil Church, Brecksville | Wedding Reception at Cleveland Westin

As we get ready to ring in the new year, I wanted to revisit the two-year anniversary of Liz and Brian, and their immaculate New Year’s Eve wedding. Anyone who knows Liz and Brian will tell you they are one of the nicest and most genuine couples on earth. Their personalities and smiles transmit so easily, and they exemplify a “Rising Star” couple.

You may find that you neglected your resolution in 2018, but Liz and Brian have not. High school and college sweethearts, they have resolved to love each other every day. Just look at their permanent smiles at the St Basil’s ceremony, a church where I have photographed several weddings at in my career and feel at home.

There is literally too much to say about this wedding, but some of the countless highlights include the Public Square Christmas light display, and the feeling we had East 4th Street to ourselves at nightfall before the crowds arrived. Liz and Brian enjoyed cookies and milk at the reception, with the night culminating with a momentous balloon drop. Ahh, so many memories that always make me beam with joy.
