Alie and Chris’s wedding day was amazing! Though it was November 5th, the weather seemed more like October 5th! From the beautiful preparations at the gorgeous Renaissance Hotel, to the ceremony at St. John’s Cathedral and then eventually back to the Renaissance for the reception, every moment was effortless and beautiful. For John and I this was the second wedding for this family. There’s something special about sharing in these extremely important, emotional and happy events with people you have gotten to know through these moments!
Alie’s hair and makeup were done by Eye Do Hair and Makeup. Pictured below is Brittney Seale always doing a beautiful job for brides! Alie wore her grandmother’s vintage watch and her flowers were wrapped in her mother’s rosary. Alie and Chris were married at St. John Cathedral in Cleveland. Always one of the more stunning locations for weddings in Cleveland. After the ceremony the family held a lunch back at the Renaissance Hotel for their guest. The wedding party refreshed themselves and then we were off to photograph around the city. We started of course with the grand lobby of the Renaissance Hotel and then traveled by Trolly to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens! The gardens were full of color and just perfect for Alie and Chris’s wedding pictures! Hated to leave the gardens, but soon headed back downtown for a few pictures just with Chris and Alie. Don’t you think Cleveland’s new Public Square is a nice compliment to the garden pictures we shot earlier?!
The reception, held at the Renaissance Hotel, was in the yellow Ambassador Ballroom. I love that the cocktail hour can be held in their elaborate lobby just down from the Ambassador Ballroom. The flow is so nice! The evening was then filled with awesome toasts by their brother and sister, lots of cookies and sweets and non-stop dancing! It was a beautiful evening and we loved being part of the festivities!
