Cleveland City Hall Rotunda Wedding with Heather & Tim

Cleveland Public Square Wedding Portrait

Heather and Tim had the most amazing wedding at the Cleveland City Hall Rotunda.  It was my first time there and I was charmed by how similar yet different it was to their sister property The Old Courthouse. The real magic of the day was these two lovebirds though.  I fell in love with their easy going nature and love of laughs when I did their engagement session and the wedding day still brings smiles and laughs.

While the photos below don’t show it, these two had such crazy calamities during their day and they laughed through them all.  From getting cursed by someone who was mad they weren’t going to fit in the elevator, to the guys falling off the canon, to pants being split beyond repair, there were a lot of things that would have sent many couples into panic mode.  Instead these two just laughed until they almost cried and rolled with it all while Allison and her team from Kirkbrides handled everything with ease.

Oh, and who can forget the stunning dress change??  I LOVE a dress change, especially when it’s a surprise to the groom!

Note: this wedding was in 2019 before the pandemic.

Happy Days Lodge Wedding with Grace and Jared

Happy Days Lodge Wedding

Grace and Jared had a beautiful sweet wedding day at the stunning Happy Days Lodge in Peninsula, Ohio nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  I’ve been to this venue now a few times and I am always charmed by the rustic beauty and the gorgeous grounds.

While Grace and Jared’s day did have a bit of drizzle they didn’t let a few rain showers (and a tornado warning!) dampen their spirits!  Luckily for us the rain mostly held off for the portions of the day where we were outside so it didn’t hinder the wedding too much.

A year and a half later and I’m still obsessed with Grace’s gorgeous gown.  I’m sure you will be too.  It was so perfect!

Western Reserve Historical Society Wedding with Rachel and Adam

Western Reserve Historical Society Cleveland Wedding

On a rainy June afternoon Rachel and Adam said I do in their backup location at their Western Reserve Historical Society wedding in Cleveland.  While it wasn’t in the Hanna Garden like they originally planned, their ceremony was still beautiful because THEY are beautiful humans inside and out.  I loved spending time with these sweet people and their families and it is a wedding that will live in my heart for a long time.

Plus, they had tacos.

I am so so so so SO far behind on blogging.  I am going to make an attempt to catch up but that means less words about these wonderful couples which makes me sad.  However, in order to catch up on the 50 or more things I have to post (!) I need to start being smarter about blogging until I’m caught up… so apologies in advance because it is NOTHING against any of my lovely clients and their weddings but more about trying to get back into the swing of things.
