One thing we’ve loved about filming weddings is that it has helped us experience our city more. Mackenzie and Bob’s wedding was immersed in the grandeur of the city of Cleveland. We started off at the trendy Kimpton Schofield hotel where Mackenzie and her bridesmaids were getting ready in a beautiful room looking out towards Playhouse Square. We had a fun time asking the hotel staff if it was okay to hang her dress from a chandelier for a cool shot! They graciously agreed.:) We were delighted to see our friends Suzanne and Dan from Suzaran Photography. We love working alongside them! With a little time to spare we jaunted over to the Union Club where Bob and his guys were doing some serious chillin’ and laughing! Then we headed back to capture Mackenzie in her dress. It was a lovely sight to see her dad get his first look at his daughter in her wedding gown.
Then it was time to head off to the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Talk about grand! It was a glorious setting for a sacred ceremony. We loved Bob’s adoring glances at Mackenzie during their vows. We also enjoyed capturing the architecture of the cathedral as it framed them in this holy moment.
After the ceremony we headed out to Cultural Gardens where we stopped at the Hungarian gardens for some beautiful shots of Mackenzie and Bob and their wedding party in the beautiful foliage and stonework. The late afternoon sun was peering through the trees in glorious fashion.
Finally, it was time to head to the Union Club, a location that we adore. This early 20th century building has more charm than a dozen modern building put together. The most stunning aspect is that they lined the grand staircase with candles on both sides from top to bottom. The video we shot of Mackenzie and Bob on the staircase is some of our favorite footage. Up in the ballroom, they, their family, and their guests filled the night with toasts, laughter, tears, and lots of dancing. It was a beautiful night with a beautiful couple. Many sweet blessings on both of you and your marriage, Mackenzie and Bob!
