After attending the same college as strangers, and law school at Cleveland State University as (mostly) friends, Helena and Chris started dating. They tied the knot this past Saturday after 7 and a half years blissful years of dating.
From the first time I met with both Helena and Chris, I knew they would be fun people to get to know and capture. Getting a hug from the groom at the end of that first meeting has to be a good sign right? They may both be lawyers but they don’t take themselves too seriously.
The wedding day itself included a cleverly tied bow-tie, plenty of guests from this side of the pond and from across the Atlantic, coordination by Valarie at Kirkbrides, cake by Flour Girl, Ted from TKO and more. The gusts of wind proved to be a little challenging, we still managed to get some great images near the Cleveland Museum of Art before heading to the Hyatt Arcade for the reception. Thanks so much for having us Helena and Chris! Looking forward to more laughs the next time we see you.
Here are some of James’ images:
And some of mine:
Beautiful work!!! I love the first dance shot and the prayer to Mary. Excited for the Kirkbrides team to work with you again on 10/29.
