The one word I can think of when I look back on the Weymouth Country Club Wedding day with Brooke and Ryan is magical. From the beginning to the end of the day I swear there was magic pixie dust because everything went smoothly and perfectly. It was a charmed day!
I originally met Brooke through an event that I photograph every year for Rainbow Babies & Childrens Hospitals called Sips & Dips. When she became engaged she contacted me and I was so honored to be able to work with her on her wedding day! Not only was she wonderful to work with but she was so organized due to her work that it made my job that much easier (and I imagine everyone’s all day since everything was so well planned).
Now onto Brooke and Ryan. These two had a sweet tenderness together with a dash of playful that was fun to capture. It was such a lovely day from start to finish but the best thing about my job is preserving loves like theirs forever. Thank you for trusting me with your wedding day!!

I just adored Brooke’s gorgeous Mori Lee gown! What I loved more than the wedding gown was the SHOES! OMG! These glittery gold heels were just amazing!
I still can’t get over how amazing Brooke looked!
The first time the groom sees the bride is always one of my favorites during a wedding day.
Brooke’s Dad was a bit teary during their walk down the long beautiful aisle at St. Cantius.
The first few looks when they are together are also my favorites during a wedding day as well.
Husband and wife!
After the ceremony we headed to Wade Oval Lagoon/Cleveland Museum of Art for their photos. I loved the colors of this wedding party!
The bridesmaids all looked amazing!!!
The groomsman also looked quite dapper!
The bridal party went back to the air conditioned bus and we finished up with the bride and groom before heading towards the reception.
I adored playing with her beautiful cathedral length veil!
These two were just too adorable together!
I loved all of the pretty details that made up Brooke’s ensemble – from the gorgeous belt on her gown, to the amazing bracelets, to her gorgeous bouquet – it was flawless.
We got lucky to have a slower day at the museum!
This bench is always one of my favorite spots and this is why – the light is amazing here!
The wind was picking up as we finished up and it took her veil with it when they were walking!
It was a funny moment!!
This picture makes me smile every time I see it!
Once we got to Weymouth Country Club we took some portraits outside near the patio area before the reception began. HOW CUTE are Ryan’s niece and nephew who were the flower girl and ring bearer?
This relaxed portrait of the bridesmaids also makes me smile.
This was a fun group of guys to work with!
The ballroom looked so amazing with all of the gold details!
The flowers were so amazing and lush!
I especially loved their champagne flutes!
You all know how much I love a good cake – Michael Angelo’s never fails to disappoint!
The toasts all went off spectacularly!
After dinner the festivities kicked off beginning with the first dance.
Then the dancing kicked off but the romance did not abate.
It may be one of the most fun dance floors of the year! Everyone from young to old was out there at some point and having a blast.
Finally I got to play with the rings and I LOVED this pink sequined tablecloth and couldn’t resist playing with it.
