Baucca Wedding October 1, 2011

October 15, 2011

Sarah and Mike’s wedding was held at The Cleveland Botanical Gardens in Cleveland Ohio on October 1, 2011. The photos began with the bride and her parents Ron and Anna at the home on 280 Th. Street in Euclid Ohio along with photos of the bride’s maids and flower girl. The weather was rainy and cold so the ceremony was being held indoors with wall to ceiling glass windows that overlooked the perfectly manicured gardens. The bride was escorted by her father Ron down the isle to her waiting groom Mike. The ceremony was about 25 minutes where the couple exchanged there vows and rings along with the sand vases.
The family and bridal party photos were taken outside in the garden area. The rain had finally let up so I had the perfect opportunity for the gardens as the backdrop for the family and bridal portraits.

The reception hall looked beautiful with the table draped with the crisp linens with the candle centerpieces. The festivities were started with the bridal party intros followed by the cake cutting and the maid of honor’s toast followed by the best mans speech. Sarah’s dad Ron had spoke of how he was excited to have welcomed Mike into the family.
After dinner the first danced was completed followed by the father daughter danced with Sarah and Ron followed by the mother son dance with Mike and Nancy. The dance floor was then open for the entire guest to dance the night away. The bouquet and garter toss were followed by the remounting of the garter.
The music and Emcee for the night was Selective Sounds with Carl the DJ playing the music of all styles that kept the guest on the dance floor through the night.
Best wishes Sarah and Mike.

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.

Rogusta Wedding September 4, 2010

September 17, 2010

Chasity and Toby’s wedding was held at The Cleveland Botanical Gardens on September 4, 2010. The couple had married indoors because of the rains and strong wind gust.
The couple looked amazing, dressed to the nines. One of the groomsmen had passed out during the ceremony and ended up falling into a large planter next to him braking his fall. They had sat him in a chair and gave him some water within a few minutes he was fine. After the vows the guest headed outside for the dove release that the couple had planned. The white doves were released from the bride and grooms hands and gracefully took flight. The rain had ended so I had taken the family and bridal party photos on the perfectly manicured grounds and then we were going to Coulby Park for the remaining photos.
The reception was held at the Radisson Hotel off route 91 in Eastlake. The hall looked beautiful, tall floral arrangements were on all of the linen tables that the guest were sitting at for dinner. The couple had opened the dance floor with their fist danced followed by the father daughter and mother son dance. The DJ and Emcee for the night was Freddie James. The music was a mix of all styles that kept the dance floor packed all night and the guest had an amazing time.
Best wishes Chasity and Toby.
