Natalya and Cameron’s wedding at the Hyatt Arcade in Downtown Cleveland was the intimate, sophisticated and romantic event that they had hoped for. Natalya is a designer and architect so what better space could there be than the historic Arcade for their wedding. Cameron and Natalya first met on a blind date set up by a co-worker. Their first date was a rainy Chicago evening in Natalya’s neighborhood of Lincoln Park and they have since traveled often together to experience the food, culture and art in places like Italy and Hawaii.
Their wedding day went as smooth as could be thanks to the careful planning both Natalya and the ladies from Kirkbrides event planning. The entire day took place within the Arcade and the attached Hyatt hotel with the exception of a quick walk over to the Cleveland Public Library. They wanted their first look to be a bit more private so we skipped the grand staircase where onlookers often gather and went up to the top floor instead. Cameron had to wait a few minutes for Natalya to make her way up the elevator but it seems as though these quiet moments are often a great opportunity to stop and fully appreciate all that is about to take place. Based on our observations as photographers, Cameron did just that.
The ceremony and reception both felt warm and inviting with the light strings and lamp posts yet at the same time grand awe inspiring under the high vaulted ceiling. The guests danced and ate and drank or just simply sat and connected with friends, family and loved ones. Natalya and Cameron soaked in every last moment and we hope that we were able to immortalize the best of those moments for them.
Cameron and Natalya, congratulations and thank you so much for including us in your day! Here are some of our favorite moments from your wedding with much more to come very soon. Enjoy!
