Megan & Billy’s Teaser!

Wait ‘til you see this dance!

“To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.” – Jane Austen

Megan and Billy performed one of the most stunning couple dances we can remember!  Like their dance, the two of them have learned to bring their two lives together and are making something beautiful.  Enjoy this small taste of their glorious wedding day.

A special thank you to Renee Lamaire Photography for the lovely thumbnail portrait.

Karli & Cameron // Mapleside Farms

Karli and Cameron are such a delightful couple. Karli’s sweet gusto and Cameron’s kindhearted smile go hand-in-hand and it was a joy to capture their day on film. The fun was palpable as we came to Karli’s family’s home in the morning with laughter and joy all around. This sweet atmosphere continued into the church and on to the reception. Our favorite moments were sharing the sunset over the apple orchards at Mapleside, purported to be the best place to view the sunset in the Cleveland area. And it did not disappoint. We had so much fun capturing Karli and Cameron with the brilliant red and orange sun descending behind them. Despite the cool air, the warmth of their family and friends was aglow all day and through the evening reception. Many blessings on you both, Karli and Cameron, and on your marriage!

Abby & Nate // George Clifton Barn

It could not have been a more lovely day in early August for Nate and Abby’s wedding.  The day started out at the Beer family home where Abby and her two sisters helped Abby do her makeup.  When Abby’s dad had his first look at Abby in her gown he melted and the tears fell.  Then we were off to St. Joseph’s for the beautiful ceremony.  After time for photos and video on the coast of Lake Erie we ended the evening at the Clifton Barn.  Our favorite memory of the night was the hilarious “shoe game,” where the bride and groom sat back to back answering questions (by raising a shoe!) to see how much they knew about the other.  Many blessings to you both, Abby and Nate, on your marriage!

Jon & Sarah // Chardon

“A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Sarah and Jon’s wedding day was, honestly, an inspiration. The two of them and their family and friends gathered together to make their wedding happen at the Wyatt home despite having had to change all their original plans. There were such heartfelt, meaningful words and honor given to each other, their family, and God, and there was also wholehearted joy and unabashed fun. On top of all of this the location was stunning. The setting sun and a visit to a nearby farm were far and above our expectations. This was also our first time partnering with Elliot Spaudie of Birds That Fly drone service https://www.btfuav.com and we love his work! Many blessings to you both, Jon & Sarah!

A couple, a field, and a setting sun…

Magical light in this field for Sarah and Jon’s wedding! Almost done with their full film, but had to put together this fun compilation of stunning drone work by Birds That Fly alongside our shots in the field. Enjoy! Birds That Fly aerial photography and video: www.btfuav.com

University Circle wedding // Michelle & Nick’s film

Michelle and Nick’s wedding was a carousel of fun! The two married at the Western Reserve Historical Society. Michelle and her father walked down the outdoor courtyard aisle to meet Nick in his Marine uniform. Under a gorgeous July sky they pledged their lives to each other. After being whisked away in a vintage car they returned to get the party started inside the Crawford Auto and Aviation Museum. Surrounded by classic planes and cars they joined their super fun bridal party for dancing, fun, and yes, carousel rides! Michelle and Nick and their friends and family hopped on the 1910 Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel for lots of spins and lots of laughs! We just loved how much Nick and Michelle enjoyed each other. Their teasing, their winks, their laughs, and their sweetness made this such a lovely wedding to capture. Many, many blessings on your marriage, Nick and Michelle!
