Tudor Arms Hotel Wedding with Jessica and Jim

July Wedding at Tudor Arms Hotel

Jessica is SUCH a delight!  I met up with her while she was in town and when they booked I did a happy dance because I was so excited to work with her.

Jessica and Jim’s wedding day was SUCH a happy day.  All weddings are but there was an extra shimmer of fun and happy joy sprinkled on their day.  They both had huge grins on their faces that didn’t stop growing through the day.  It was so fun to witness and document.  Their friends and family reflected this joy as well.

Thank you both SO much for trusting me with your day!

Luckily her Mom was there to make sure her veil was perfect.

LaMalfa Wedding with Jessica and John

Jessica and John's Wedding Photos at The Old Courthouse in Cleveland

At the very end of June last year I met back up with Jessica and John and it was SUCH a fun wedding day.  I had already fallen in love with them after their engagement session the year before and I knew that their day would be a blast.  However I had even more fun than I had imagined!

Both Jessica and John are super laid back and just love to have a good time.  They were both grinning all day long and I’m sorry but any bride that changes into comfy slippers at her reception on her wedding day is my kind of girl.

Don’t let the slippers fool you though, this wedding was SO elegant and beautiful!

I had a tough time narrowing down images from this wedding.  My “narrowed down” list started at 95!!!  Whoops.  It was SO hard to get it lower but I eventually managed to do it.  It was tough and my heart is sad for the photos you don’t see but they are on my Facebook Page if you want to see more (which, why wouldn’t you?).

Thank you both SO much for trusting me with your wedding photos!  I loved spending the day with you and your families!

Hyatt Regency Cleveland at The Arcade Double Wedding

Wedding at the Hyatt Regency at the Arcade in Cleveland

After over ten years of photographing weddings there are few things that I haven’t photographed. However last June I got to do something I had never done before and to be honest I was a little bit intimidated by it. I had my first double wedding. What is a double wedding? Of course there’s many different ways to do it but for my wedding last June it was two sisters marrying on the same day to two different grooms (who were not brothers, which I was the most often question I got).

It was a SUPER tight schedule as you can imagine (you should see my PDF timeline of this, it’s insane) so that was the cause of my intimidation because as most of us know, weddings can go completely off schedule by one slight mishap. Thankfully due to an amazing vendor team and my own team (there were THREE of us shooting this wedding!) nothing ever was too far off time wise, even when some last minute sewing needed to be done.

This is going to be the most photo heavy post I’ve ever posted and trust me when I say I’ve narrowed it down as far as I can bear to.  But sometimes with two ceremonies and a double reception you’re just going to go over your made up self-rule of 50ish images for a blog post.  Trust me though, these weddings are worth the patience to sit and scroll!

Thank you SO much to Nicholas, Barbie, Kristin and Kris for trusting me to document your amazing wedding day. It was so much fun and crazy in all the best ways.
