High School sweethearts Mary and Adam know how to make people feel loved and appreciated. This was made evident by the best man’s toast where he had the wedding guests raise their hands if either Mary or Adam had done one of a list of kind, generous or thoughtful thing for them in the past. I’m pretty sure just about everyone in that room raised their hand at one point. It’s pretty awesome when selfless people find themselves surrounded by their loved ones and true appreciation can be shown in return. That’s exactly what this wedding felt like.
The day started out with the ceremony at the classically beautiful Church of the Saviour. The stained glass windows, ornate woodwork, and exterior stonework are a thing to behold. Like something you would expect to find in Europe, not Cleveland, Ohio. After the ceremony and family photos, we headed to Ohio City for some fun photos of the bridal party and the couple. We got to try some new things in a familiar space which is always a great bonus for us as photographers and the bridal party was simply a pleasure to be around.
The day ended with an amazing party at The Westin in Downtown Cleveland. Blooms by Plantscaping provided expert floral decoration and lighting And Herby “DJ Smoove” kept the party rocking all through the evening.
Mary and Adam – it was so great getting to know you guys through the engagement session and planning process. We feel like we really got a sense of your relationship by observing and documenting you and your families on your wedding day and we can’t wait to show you the results of our effort. In the meantime, here’s a taste to hold you over.
