Talk about setting the bar high for our 2017 wedding season! Gina and Ryan's wedding was our first wedding this year and it certainly did not disappoint! Danée kicked off the day bright and early at ZEN Metro Spa in Cleveland. Gina and her gals had the entire salon to themselves, which made for a super relaxed morning, and Yes... There was plenty of champagne. ;) Nick spent the morning hanging out with the guys at Gina and Ryan's humble abode. They fixed collars and tied each other's neckties... You know... all the manly wedding day things ;) It really was the perfect morning, and we could all tell it was going to be an even more perfect day.
We all reconvened at the church and didn't waste any time getting the ball rollin'! The ceremony was held at Saint John's Cathedral in Cleveland, where Gina and Ryan made it official, surrounded by their closest friends and families.
From there, we joined the newlyweds and the bridal party on the party bus and headed to the Hungarian Cultural Garden for portraits. It was a whopping 30 some degrees outside... A scorcher!! I know! But everyone put their 'big kid pants' on and were major troopers! We got tons of awesome photos and had some time to kill, so we spent some time at The Maproom in downtown Cleveland, enjoying the warmth and a couple of adult beverages. This day was seriously so chill, which is no surprise if you know Gina and Ryan!
We arrived early at The Old Courthouse, so naturally, we took some time to do a few portraits with the newly married couple. This place is stunning... How could we not take advantage of where we were? If you've ever been to the Old Courthouse, you know how grand and striking it is. If you haven't... Just wait for the photos below. Love love love! It is such an impactful location for a wedding reception.
Gina... Ryan... Thank you so much for including us in your day and for making us feel so welcome. We have had the best time getting to know you both!! Congratulations again!
