Stephanie and Bryan's Wedding
A Romance Written in the Sand

St. Bartholomew’s Wedding Ceremony | Aloft Cleveland Wedding Reception I love hearing the backstories on how my couples met. I have heard several stories that coincidence just can not explain. Stephanie and Bryan both attended Strongsville High School, but did not know one another or cross paths. After graduation, they went to two different colleges. It wasn’t until a trip to Windsor, Canada with a group of mutual friends, during their junior...

Marissa and Nick's Engagement
Cleve (Land That I Love)

Downtown Cleveland Engagement Photoshoot I absolutely love my job and all my couples. I have so many memories of meeting couples for the first time as strangers, but walking away extremely comfortable, and then becoming friends during the engagement session. Marissa and Nick illustrate this perfectly. In honor of their upcoming wedding, I wanted to post some highlights from their engagement session last August. Nick and Marissa have a real...

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...

Kayla and Zack's Wedding
Prince Charming and a Puppy

Cleveland Old Arcade Wedding The Hyatt Regency in Cleveland’s Old Arcade was the setting for Kayla and Zack’s elegant wedding, and it started with a huge surprise. Kayla opened a letter from Zach revealing there would be a new addition to the family upon return from their honeymoon…a golden retriever puppy. Yes, this was going to be a great day! Having met Zack at a previous wedding, and starting the season off with a late winter engagement...

Sara and Austin's Wedding
Old Cleveland… New Cleveland

Wedding Ceremony at the Old Stone Church | Wedding Reception at Music Box Supper Club This wedding had it all…an enthusiastic bridal party, perfect summer weather, classic locations, and a couple that radiates positive and loving energy. A recent graduate from medical school near Columbus (and where Austin is from), Dr. Sara brought her fiancé back home to say, “I do!” Our day began at the Old Stone Church, one of Cleveland’s oldest...

Torey and Ben's Engagement
A Romance That Started with a Tweet

Downtown Cleveland Engagement Photoshoot Originally from Brecksville, Torey had moved to Columbus, graduated from Ohio State and started her professional career. She started following Ben on Twitter to keep up with Ohio State news, but also thought he was cute and wanted to get his attention. So one December night she tweeted that she wanted to go on a date, and then went to bed. The next morning she was elated to see that Ben accepted. Three...

Olivia & Derek's Wedding
All the Cleveland Fun & Then Some!

Wedding Ceremony at St. Vitus Church, Cleveland | Wedding Reception at St. Paul Hellenic, North Royalton Being storytellers, it’s a little hard to describe in words how much we adored this wedding. As the saying goes, “you just had to be there.” From the moment the day started until the last dance, the enjoyment was non-stop. Olivia and Derek are more than just clients to us, they became true friends. The day began with a majestic service...

Liz and Brian's Wedding
NYE in the CLE

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”...
