This past Saturday we finally had the chance to photograph the winner of our giveaway. This couple’s story hit close to home for a couple reasons: Rachel has aspired to do wedding photography herself but let that go and opted for a more stable 9-5 job. Giving up on your passion just brakes my heart, especially when that passion is photography. James meanwhile is suffering from kidney failure and patiently waiting for a transplant. My brother has struggled through that exact problem and will be dealing with it for life so I know how tough it can be. You guys are troopers!
We were already looking forward to James and Rachel’s rooftop wedding at the Cleveland Embassy Suites, but we were in for quite a treat when we saw all the fun details they had planned. From the shoes, the rings, birdcage veil, the knee-length wedding dress purchased on Etsy, the paper flowers, the rooftop ceremony and the art gallery reception, this wedding was certainly unique and full of personality.
On to the photos.
