Just after Phil and Simona saw each other for the first time at the first look, we overheard Phil’s friend tell him that he had never seen him so happy. Looking back at the wedding, that is a great way to sum up the general feeling of the day. A work relationship turned unlikely romance eventually became this incredibly sweet and obviously loving couple.
We started with the aforementioned first look, then moved on to a beautiful Orthodox Ceremony at Buna Vestire, co-officiated by Simona’s father, adding a whole new layer of significance to the ceremony. We stopped downtown at The Fountain of Eternal Life on the way to the reception to get some great Cleveland themed images. Despite the rain, and moving the Botanical Garden reception indoors, Phil and Simona remained in great spirits while we did more photos in the gardens. The reception itself was filled with emotional moments as it became clear just how much their family and friends adored them.
Thanks for having us P&S, we loved getting to meet you and spend some time with you, and we hope you love the photos!
