Melissa & Mark’s Wedding at Barrington Country Club

Forecasters warned that this summer day in Northeast Ohio would be a washout, but mother nature had other plans for Melissa and Mark’s wedding and reception at Barrington Country Club in Aurora, Ohio. Storm clouds left the area just in time for a perfect day.

After a bit of preparation coverage, Melissa and Mark met on a quaint bridge for their first look. Instead of fending off raindrops, umbrellas were used as veils during this fun and suspenseful moment. We then explored the grounds at Barrington while capturing relaxed portraits, which included shots with Melissa’s father’s Model A Ford.

Family and friends then gathered on the veranda for a lovely ceremony. Perfectly delivered readings and the classic sound of harp music complimented a sweet exchange of vows. After the ceremony, the couple greeted guests, enjoyed Moscow Mules and joined immediate family members for a few group photographs before heading inside for the reception.

Toasts, cupcakes, dancing and a wicked leg-guitar solo rounded out the celebration. Dennis Samson & Nightbreeze kept the party going well into the night. Melissa and Mark, it was an honor documenting your wedding day.

Alana & Dave’s Tudor Arms Wedding

Renovated just a few years ago, the historic Tudor Arms Hotel was a perfect site for Alana and Dave’s Cleveland wedding. Fittingly, Alana and her bridesmaids got ready in the Juliet Room while the guys made final preparations in the Romeo Room.

Alana found a quiet spot in a sunlit stairwell to read a special note and open a gift from Dave. We captured a few relaxed portraits after Alana’s sister helped with the new earrings, and then it was off to cover Dave as he read a note and opened cufflinks adorning the British flag from Alana. Afterwards, Dave and his best man navigated their way through a “bowtie challenge.”

Friends and family from several different states and England gathered in the Tudor Ballroom for a ceremony filled with love and emotion — a lot of giggles. Alana, with a big smile, told me early in the day that “it’s either cry or laugh a lot, and I’m not crying today!” Alana’s contagious energy quickly reached Dave, guests and even Bob Javorsky (the perfect officiant for this and any wedding). Sweet laughter gave the ceremony great character.

After family pictures and a few brief relaxed portraits with the newly married couple, the celebration moved to the Crystal Ballroom. Plantscaping and Blooms provided elegant decor. A quick-reacting Dave saved the 3-foot-plus, multi-layered cake from toppling over during the cutting. Several fun stories were shared during the toasts, and the newlyweds even received a FaceTime message from across the pond before the night gave way to non-stop of dancing.

Here are a few of my favorite images from this great day. Enjoy.

Emily & Aaron’s Mooreland Mansion Wedding

Emily’s easy-going nature and Aaron’s witty humor helped define their relaxed wedding-day celebration at Mooreland Mansion, easily one of my favorite wedding venues in northeast Ohio. Coverage began with Emily and her bridesmaids getting ready in the Board Room and Aaron and his groomsmen prepping in the Interurban Room. They shared plenty of stories and laughs before heading out to a blooming Rose Garden for the ceremony. Vows were exchanged in front of family and friends in perfect weather. It was warm enough to feel like summer, and overcast skies evenly lit the mansion’s beautifully landscaped grounds. Bridal party members were formally introduced during cocktail hour as they entered the South Veranda. Then it was time for well-delivered toasts, wonderful dinner service and plenty of dancing. Here is a small collection of images captured throughout the day.

Kelsey & Jose’s Cleveland Wedding

Cleveland Wedding Photography Rose Cafe Kelsey Jose 01

It was a gorgeous June day for Kelsey and Jose’s quaint wedding on the north coast. Coming from many different states, close friends and family converged on the west side of Cleveland for a day full of sunshine, laughter and celebration.

It was a privilege to witness this union and document so many great moments. Kelsey and Jose’s shared faith and strong bonds with family and friends were obvious throughout the day. Bridal party members and family reserved special time to pray and reflect on this new marriage. Kelsey’s father officiated a personalized ceremony at the Orchid Cafe in Avon.

The day was capped off by a reception at Lakeview Park Rose Cafe in Lorain. Toasts, dancing, a walk on the beach at sunset and the hilarious “shoe game” highlighted a perfect evening. Kelsey’s brothers even busted out a pretty smooth “Stanky Leg.” Congratulations Kelsey and Jose! Here are a few of my favorite images from your day.
