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
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!
Here are some of the great vendors we had the privilege to work alongside:
Imagine Katie in Ryan’s arms, forehead to forehead, underneath an historic Cleveland bridge, wind billowing Katie’s stunning dress. That sight captured the stunning feel of their wedding day. The second image we can’t forget is when their entire wedding party surrounded them at the front of the church, placed hands on them, and prayed for Katie and Ryan and their marriage. Oh, and let’s not forget all the fun laughs too! What a glorious day and a heartfelt couple. Many blessings to you both, Katie and Ryan, and on your marriage!
The setting for Monica and Jeff’s wedding day was just about as idyllic as the weather. On this gorgeous spring day, Country Cottages and Gardens was personally bedecked with antique farm equipment from Monica’s brother’s farm. From the ceremony facing the willow-laden lake, to the photos in a field, and the outdoor reception, Monica and Jeff filled their time with meaning. This was beautifully captured when they released butterflies into the sky to symbolize their desire to leave the world better than they found it. Many blessings to you both, Monica and Jeff!
The heart of Emily and Jacob’s wedding day for us was captured in their first look. Cleveland weather, like life, is utterly unpredictable, and chilly rain forced the planned courtyard first look to be confined to the awning outside the entrance to the Ballroom at Park Lane. But despite the weather and the change of plans, when Jacob and Emily saw each other for the first time that April day, Jacob shook his head in amazement. Emily sweetly wiped a tear from Jacob’s cheek and he gently caressed her hair, still blown away by the gift of this bride that was about to become his. The weather turned from bad to worse outside that day, but the two of them just kept relishing each other-that’s a beautiful way to face life together! Many blessings to you both, Emily and Jacob!
We just could not get enough of shots of Kylie and Colton in and around this little, old school house. They were just stunning in the waning light of the sun as it descended behind these rolling rural Ohio hills. Colton’s strong emotions and Kylie’s sweetness made for a wedding where their passion for each other triumphed even over the beauty of their surroundings. The only thing that matched that was their faith, which was the center of all they did that day. Many blessings on your marriage, Kylie and Colton!
