September 20, 2011

Jennifer and Jim’s wedding was held at The Church of the Divine Word in Kirtland on September 10, 2011. The photos began with the bride and her parents followed by the bride’s maids at her parents home in Eastlake. Jim’s photos of his parents and siblings were taken before the wedding ceremony at the church. The guests were arriving with umbrellas in hand because of the rain that began earlier that morning. The bride was escorted by her father down the isle to her waiting groom Jim.
The couples all looked amazing as they headed up the isle after the ceremony to prepare for the bride and grooms exit from the church. The rain had finally ended and the hope of sunshine looks near. The bridal party photos were taken at Emeritus in Mentor and Coulby Park in Wickliffe.

The reception hall at Radisson Hotel in Eastlake looked beautiful with the table draped with the crisp linens with the floral centerpieces. The festivities were started with the bridal party introductions followed by the cake cutting. The best man and maid of honor gave beautiful speeches and had talked about how they knew the couple. The first danced kicked off the festivities followed by the bridal dance. The father daughter danced and mother son dance. The music was a mix of all styles from Selective Sounds that kept the guest on the dance floor through the night.
Best wishes Jennifer and Jim.

Aubry and James wedding was held at Holden arboretum on June 24, 2011.
I had met up with the groom James and the groomsman’s at his mom Mareens house for some photos prior to the wedding. The day has been cloudy and rainy. The couple wants to have the outdoor wedding they have always dreamed of.
I had taken the photos of the bride with her bridesmaids at her mom’s home prior to the ceremony. The weather broke a few minutes before the wedding so the outdoor wedding is saved. The bride looked amazing being escorted by her dad grandfather Milan. The ceremony was beautiful and lasted about 15 minutes. The couples all looked amazing as they headed down the isle after the ceremony as we were going to start the outdoor photos for the bride and groom along with the family and bridal party photos.
The grounds at Holden are a beautiful place for photos with all the well manicured gardens. The couples then boarded the limo bus and we headed off to the reception at La Vera Party Center in Willoughby Hills.
The reception hall looked beautiful with the table draped so perfect the couples were all introduced by the DJ as they entered and were preparing for the fantastic dinner. The festivities were started by the cake cutting followed by the mother son dance and the bride danced with her brother Jimmy. A friend of the grandfather Milan had song New York New York for the couple and the crowed loved it. The music was a mix of all styles that kept the guest on the dance floor through the night. The guest spent the entire night dancing and having a wonderful time.
Best wishes Aubry and James.

Dorsey Wedding June 5, 2010

June 9, 2010

Jill and Sean Dorsey wedding and reception had taken place on Saturday June 5 the Holden Arboretum in Kirtland. This couple is extremely earth friendly and wanted an outdoor green wedding. The invitations were designed with recycled paper and earth friendly organic inks. Jill shoe were made from recycled tires.
The wedding went off beautifully and the rain held off for the most of the day. Jill was escorted down the plant filled path by her father up to her awaiting husband Sean. The glow on his face had taken place of the clouds in the sky. The couple had written their vows and with deep sincerity recited then while they looked into each others eyes.
I starting taking the family photos in the perfectly manicured gardens until the rain had settled upon the day. I had finished the family photos and the bridal party photos in the garden room with full length windows overlooking the gardens.
The couple had a huge tent that accommodated the 260 guest with the band Abby Normal as the entertainment and Emcee for the evening. The introduction of the parents and bridal party were underway with a standing ovation for the bride and groom. The couple had the first dance followed by the amazing dinner station in areas around the tent. The food station consisted of the mashed potato bar, chicken marcella, roast beef, and a fruit and cheese table.
The band did an amazing job keeping all the guest dancing till the end of the reception.
