From Emily…..”Chris had planned to proposed on a vacation but we ended up missing our flight (along with a lot of other irate travelers) because our airline changed the flight time but didn’t update us via email or the app or the signboards in the airport. We were just having a great time at the Great Lakes Brewery Company at the airport when Chris received a notification that our flight had departed hours early. We ended up taking a road trip instead and Chris proposed the next day – different city, different plan, but still ended well! :)”
Funny wedding and engagement stories…we hear lots of them and love them all! Seems every couple (including ourselves) has a story about the engagement or about the wedding day. Being wedding photographers, this is one of the many things we are drawn to….telling the story with pictures, however it may fold out!
Chris and Emily had their wedding preparations at the Lakewood Country Club. This worked well, since their reception would be there. Spenser from Life In Bloom brought the flowers early so that we could use them in the preparation pictures. I always appreciate that! Emily had gifts for both her parents and then several gifts from Chris! Then we were off to the church in Avon Lake. Holy Spirit. After the formals we ventured into Cleveland and photographed at the always romantic Cleveland Cultural Gardens. For brides that love a beautiful garden and a more traditional romantic look to their pictures, then the Cultural Gardens will not disappoint. So many options there. As much as we love it there, it’s always a good idea to have a couple locations so we stopped off at the lake for a completely different look! Then we were going to photograph at the club, but unfortunately rain finally hit and we attended the cocktail hour instead!
Be sure to check out the adorable cookies that Emily and Chris gave out at each place setting. There was a dessert room with plenty of sweets to indulge in as well! Lots of fun moments at the reception and Lakewood Country Club is very accommodating! Congratulations Emily and Chris!!
