Joe and Michelle are an adorable couple that just radiate love and happiness when they are together. Seriously, they had non-stop smiles throughout their wedding day and nothing is more beautiful to photograph than love. They have been together for 9 years. They met in college and both went into fields of service for others. Sticking together through the academy for Joe and graduate school for Michelle, their friends and families couldn’t be happier for their wedding day to finally arrive!
The couple have an adorable dog named Lola that was not allowed in the church, so Michelle carried her little dog tag around her flowers. She also had her grandmother’s engagement ring in her bouquet! Joe wore his great-uncle Sam’s cuff links that were a gift from his wife,
Tuzi, on their wedding day.
Their ceremony was at the always magnificent, St. John Cathedral
in Cleveland. It’s always fun to capture the couples first reactions as they exchange vows and then are seated again next to each other. The little glances and first look at their rings together, are the kind of moments that only come once. But so is the infamous exit of the church! Have you ever seen so many bubbles?
What a grand exit!!
After capturing some moments at the church, we headed to Cleveland’s Old Courthouse for some elegant portraits with the wedding party. The weather was beautiful, so we also took advantage of some of the garden areas around Cleveland. We had a lot of fun with the wedding party at the Museum of Art, and also managed to capture some
romantic moments as well with Joe and Michelle!
The reception was at the Hilton Garden Inn
in Twinsburg. The ballroom radiated with beautiful sparkles on the walls and rich burgundy linens with big centerpieces of soft flowers . It was a beautiful and fun atmosphere full of details and personal touches!
Congratulations Michelle and Joe, we truly LOVED working with the two of you and capturing your engagement and wedding!
