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!

Music Box Supper Club wedding of Katie & Ryan

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!

Country Cottage Wedding of Monica & Jeff

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!
