Schwan Wedding July 28, 2012

August 14, 2012

Schwan wedding was held at Royal Redeemer Luther Church in North Royalton Ohio on Saturday July 28, 2012. The day started out with rain and sun and with a small amount of cloud cover. I started with photos of Brian with his family at the church. Followed by Kim getting ready for her big day with the maid of honor and the bridesmaids at her parents home in the brides room at the church. The groomsman and bridesmaids headed down the isle before Kim and her father Alan walked down the isle to her waiting husband to be Brian. The vows lasted about 30 minutes with the  pastor Jim Martin marring the couple. Then we processed to do the exit from the church with the entire guest blowing bubbles as the couple headed out the door to the limo bus. Family photos as well as the bridal party photos were taken on the altar of the church. I had photographed the bridal party photos at The Cleveland Browns Stadium. The bride and groom are huge Browns fans and wanted the stadium as part of their memories and photos. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was the additional backdrop for the photos. We then headed to Henn Mansion in Euclid for photos on the beach. The weather was perfect sunny with a gentle lake breeze.

 The reception was held at St. Vladimirs Grand Hall in Parma. The banquet hall was beautifully decorated with an elegant feel with the flowers on the tables and the lights dimly lit. The food was a delicious choice of chicken, pork chops, mixed vegetable, salad, and rolls 

The DJ for the evening was Jose a good friend of the couple. I had the honor of photographing Jose wedding 5 years ago. The couple did the first dance followed by the cake cutting. Jose did an amazing job keeping the request going for the dancers for entire evening. Later that evening Brian and Kim started the father daughter dance concluded by the mother son dance. The night concluded with the bouquet toss and garter toss followed by the remount. The wedding was a great time and the guest has a wonderful night. 

Best wishes Brian and Kim
