The wedding season here in Cleveland is back in full swing and we couldn’t have gotten off to a better start than with Carlton and Kim for their beautifully elegant wedding at St. Ann’s and the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. Kim’s sweet spirit and Carlton’s calm demeanor made them such a please to be around and so easy to photograph naturally. And after getting to know their families, it’s not hard to figure out where these traits came from.
The ceremony at St. Ann Church was a sight to behold. Long time family friend and expert florist Michael Day of Flowerville perfectly complimented the classic architecture with his floral arrangements. Just take a look at the photos below. You’ll see what we mean.
After the ceremony, everyone joined together at Carlton’s family home for family portraits and creative portraits of the couple. We love being able to pull in such a strong element personal family history into our wedding photos as the ample charm provided by the landscaping and old world architecture made it in ideal location for photos in it’s own right.
After our short but productive stint to Downtown Cleveland got cut short by the rain, we landed at our final destination at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens where everyone reveled in an enchanting night in a beautifully appointed tent with great music and food on the garden terrace.
Thank you so much for making us a part of your day, Kim and Carlton, and congratulations!
And a special thanks goes out to Joe Appel Photography for coming out from Pittsburg to help us shoot the reception. We loved having you there!
