Sindelar Wedding August 20, 2011

August 22, 2011

Danielle and Thomas’s wedding was held at St. John of the Cross Church in Richmond Hts on August 20, 2011. The photos began with the bride and her parents followed by the bride’s maids at her grandmothers home about 5 minutes from the church. I had then taken photos of Thomas with his parents before the wedding ceremony had begun. The bride was escorted by her father down the isle to her waiting groom. Rev. Salvatore M. Ruggeri had married the couple and gave a homily that had brought tears to many eyes talking about her late grandfather.
The day has been sunny and the stained glass windows illuminated the church during the wedding. 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 I had then started the photographs of family and bridal party on the altar of the church then we had to be done by 3:15 to make our appointment at the Botanical Gardens. We finished off the photos at Wade Park outside near the Art Museum. It had begun to rain so we finished off the photos and headed to the reception hall.

The reception hall at La Vera’s 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 and the mother son danced followed shortly by the bouquet and garter toss. The music was a mix of all styles JR from Selective Sounds as the entertainment that kept the guest on the dance floor through the night. Danielle’s dad had played the accordion onstage with the polka band that entertained the guest for a few songs.
