Lauren & Jason’s Renaissance Cleveland Wedding

The city of Cleveland looked great for Lauren and Jason’s perfect wedding. Excitement filed the Renaissance Hotel as Lauren and her bridesmaids prepared for this milestone. Jason and the guys cleaned up pretty well as they put on their game faces. Family and friends converged on University Circle United Methodist Church for a ceremony capped off with rose pedals magically falling from the ceiling. The bridal party visited the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cultural Gardens for a few relaxed portraits. Then it was back the Renaissance for a wonderful celebration. Michael and George (Lauren’s brothers) honored the newlyweds with song and dance. Michael’s perfectly choreographed performance to Britney Spear’s “Work” was epic. Here are a few images from this great day. Congratulations Lauren and Jason!

Marge & Mario’s Wedding Anniversary at Gervasi

I’ve photographed 400+ weddings to date. However, today I covered a slightly different event. I had the privilege of documenting Marge and Mario’s 40th wedding anniversary celebration at Gervasi Vineyard. It was heartwarming to see how a relationship endures when two people truly love each and stay on the path through life’s victories and challenges. Marge and Mario’s affection for each other was obvious and came out naturally as we walked the grounds and captured a nice collection of relaxed portraits. They were then joined by family, close friends and their bridal party for an evening of fine food and wine, toasts and laughter and plenty of dancing. Congratulations Marge and Mario!

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.
