After their wedding ceremony at the Church of the Holy Angels in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Nick and Ryann exited the church to discover that Ryann’s parents had a horse drawn carriage waiting for them. After a quick ride and pictures in the church, it was on to downtown Chagrin Falls for some images around the area. Our goal, really, was to capture the season with all of the Christmas lights and such. We actually had time to stop into Starbucks and warm up a bit and to have some coffee (JOY!!)!!! It was then on to the wedding reception at The Bertram Inn in Aurora, Ohio. The Avenue provided the evenings entertainment and the night went on just like the day…perfectly. I want to thank Nick, Ryann, their families and wedding party for be SO incredibly nice to work with.

Nick and Ryann were married yesterday!! After their fun engagement sessions I was looking forward to their wedding day. Ryann started out at the Piazza Salon in Chagrin Falls then finished getting ready at her parents house. Ryann’s parents house was perfect for capturing beautiful wedding day images of Ryann (love the corner!!). Nick got ready in the Bridal Suite at the Bertram Inn. We would have liked snow for a December wedding but the weather was just beautiful. And the day went of almost perfectly save a cut finger. The wedding ceremony took place at the Church of the Holy Angels in Chagrin Falls. With all of the Christmas decorations, the church was just beautiful for a Christmas wedding. They also had a hand bell ensemble as well as a full choir (they were GREAT!). There were many emotional moments throughout the day and the wedding ceremony (Ryann sang with her father) but I would have to say that the most emotional moment was when Ryann’s brother, Chris, surprised her with a rendition of “Over The Rainbow” on his baritone sax (I’ll admit it, I got a lump in my throat at that moment). A close second came when Ryann and Nick discovered the surprise that Ryann’s parents set up for them following their exit from the ceremony. The last image in this post shows the exact moment Ryann saw it. Check tomorrows blog post to see what that was This is part one of two blog posts of the wedding day.

Yesterday, I met up with Nick and Ryann for their engagement session, They will be getting married this December with the wedding at Holy Angels Church in Bainbridge, Ohio and the reception at The Bertram Inn. Nick and Ryann LOVE Cleveland (who doesn’t?). They love the Indians, they love the Browns. So, we went to the heart of downtown Cleveland, the famous East Fourth street. East Fourth is, by far, the most popular location for photographs, so I always want to approach each clients session there differently. Nick and Ryann didn’t disappoint. They had fun and enjoyed each other in front of the camera. We went up and down East Fourth in into all it’s nooks and crannies (such a strange phrase, no?) finding all kinds of nice chunks of light. We went to other Cleveland landmarks: Browns Stadium (or whatever it’s called now); Progressive Field ; and ended up at Playhouse Square (a favorite area of mine). I’m looking forward to their December wedding but I have a feeling we MAY be doing another session before then Below are a few images from the session.

Yesterday was Steve (Klicky) and Katie’s wedding. The wedding was held at St. Paschal Baylon Church in Highland Heights, Ohio and the reception was at the Bertram Inn in Aurora, Ohio. Steve and Katie LOVE pictures so I was extremely excited to document their wedding day. The day started at Katie’s parents house and we tried to most everything indoors since it was so oppressively hot. Everyone was so awesome though and did what Steve and Katie required and it really made my job easy. The reception had SO many incredible details it would be impossible to post all of them here. I picked a few of my favorites. Needless to say, The Bertram did a spectacular job and the Marino Brothers keep the partying jumping (sometimes litereally) the ENTIRE night. To The Bertram Inn and the Marino Brothers I say “Awesome Job!!!” Klicky (See?!! I said it!!!) and Katie. Thank you SO much for allowing me to participate in you AWESOME day. Thank you to Margaret Janicki of Janicki Photography for filling in for Renee. It’s not an easy job but she did great!! Thank you, Margaret!

This was, actually, a mistake. But a pretty good one, no?
