The Burnette Wedding November 9, 2012

November 20, 2012

Burnette wedding was held at Ss. Robert and Williams Parrish Church in Euclid Ohio on Friday November 9, 2012. The day started out with sun and 55 degrees unusual for November. I started with photos of Tammy with his family at the house in Willowick. Followed by photos of JJ getting ready at the church with family. The groomsman and bridesmaids headed down the isle before Tammy and her father Bill walked down the isle to her waiting husband to be JJ. The vows lasted about 45 minutes with the pastor 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. The Euclid fire department had driven one of the fire trucks up to the church for photos with the bridal party. The remaining bridal party photos at Manakikki County Cub in Willoughby Hills.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was the additional backdrop for the photos.The reception was held at The Croatian Ballroom in Eastlake. The banquet hall was beautifully decorated with an elegant feel with the lights dimly lit. The food was a delicious choice of chicken, roast beef, mixed vegetable, pasta, salad, and rolls.The DJ for the evening Joe with Starlight Productions was a good friend of the couple. The couple did the entrance followed by the first dance followed by dinner. The father daughter dance then mother son dance followed by the cake cutting. The Joe did an amazing job keeping the request going for the dancers for entire evening. 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 JJ and Tammy

Skrtic Wedding

October 15, 2009

Frank and Keri were a pleasure to work with.The church was St. James in Lakewood on Detroit ave.This is one of the most amazing churches I have been to. The detail and craftsmanship are exquisite. The hand panted Fresno’s and gold gilding are an art form that is lost this current day.The parish is going to be closing this will be a huge loss to the parishioners. Keri had requested that I arrive early to the church to take some photographs for her album. I had taken 70 photographs in about 20 minutes. This church is a photographers dream.The pictures look wonderful they capture all the details in the work of this parish.
We were able to gather the bridal party up and take the photographs at Coulby Park in Wickliffe.The leafs were slowly changing so we did not have ample fall colors yet but the back drop was still perfect.
The reception was at The Croatian hall in Eastlake. The hall looked amazing Keri has beautiful fall arrangements on every table with fall colored napkins that set the tone.Selective Sounds DJ the event and had the dance floor packed all night. The couple was going to Italy for a two week honeymoon, lucky them. The St. James church photographs are on the web site under the Skrtic gallery you must check out the images of this amazing church.
