Victoria and Chris wanted a small, intimate, elegant and relaxed wedding in a beautiful setting. That is exactly what they got when family and friends joined them in their wedding day at Holden Arboretum. Capturing weddings that all events take place in location is one of my favorite things to do. I get sucked in the moments uninterrupted and just focus on the story of the wedding day. Victoria and Chris had one of the sweetest first look moment, tears ran down her cheeks. The ceremony was held right outside the mansion, followed by dinner indoors and dancing outdoors. The night couldn’t be complete without creating a breathtaking end of the night portrait.
Amanda and Don took a wonderful journey starting with the wedding day, and now they eagerly wait to welcome to the world their baby girl. For their session I visited them at home and we had a lifestyle shoot using all natural light but the last shot. I really have to do more in home sessions, it really adds meaning to the storytelling my style of photography brings. During the session we mostly talked, and laughed, it just felt like I was just hanging out and taking photos along the way. The plan is to visit them the day after delivery at the hospital for their first official family photo. Can’t wait!
There is one word that I can use to describe Morgan and Tony’s wedding day… Fun. Plain and simple the day was just fun from the getting ready moments all the way to the sparklers exit. After the lovely ceremony, the party took place at Crystal Brook Farm. Just love coming back to this location! The details of the reception had a nice rustic touch to them to fit the location.
It’s not often I tear up during a father and daughter dance, Morgan and her dad managed to do that to me. It wasn’t tears! My eyeballs were sweating. 😉 I have a little girl, and the way he held her was very familiar, so beautiful.
On the drive back to Cleveland at the end of the night I smile the entire time. The wedding was just that great.Many congratulations to Morgan & Tony!!!
