The date was July 28th. The time was 7:00 am. My phone lit up with a text message from a good friend of mine. The text read "Are you available this Friday"? Turns out Vickie and Joe had a sudden cancellation with their photographer and were in need of one, last minute (3 days before the wedding). We are SO happy that we had nothing going on that upcoming Friday because Vickie, Joe, and all of their family and friends were such fun and caring people. Our journey with them started Thursday evening where we met up with them for their rehearsal dinner, and to go over final details for the wedding day. Their entire family welcomed us with open arms are treated us like family (such an amazing feeling). Ok, now on to the BIG DAY, July 31st, 2015. Vickie started her day off getting ready at her sister home in Lakewood while Joe and the guys got cozy together while getting ready at the aLoft Hotel downtown Cleveland. The wedding ceremony took place at the jaw dropping Western Reserve Historical Society in the Hanna Garden. Photos and party bus shenanigans then proceeded around the downtown Cleveland area. We wrapped up the night with Vickie and Joe at Windows on the River in the Cleveland Flats. Overall, such an amazing, stress free wedding experience with these two! Congratulation Vickie and Joe!
We absolutely love military weddings. Alex, thank you so so much for your services. They are greatly appreciated. Our fun filled chilly day after Christmas started with Amber and Alex getting ready at the Hyatt Arcade hotel downtown Cleveland Ohio. Amber and Alex also did their first look on the stairs at the arcade. We then proceeded to take a tour of Cleveland for their portrait session. Hitting the popular East 4th street, the middle of Euclid avenue, and Superior bridge. Oh of my favorite photos from the day was taken in the middle of the superior bridge while dodging traffic. Mad props to Alex for a perfect dip (with no instruction from me) in the middle of the street. Ceremony and Reception were held in the City View room at Windows On The River. Thanks again for allowing us to document your wedding day! We had such a great time with the two of you.
