We are so glad that we had the opportunity to capture Morgan and Tim’s wedding at the Hanna Garden and reception at Windows on the River. Both Tim and Morgan are fun, kind, easygoing and down to earth people that are such a joy to be around. I also had the pleasure photographing their back yard rehearsal dinner the day before and it’s clear to see these character traits are quite common amongst the people they are closest to.
The ceremony took place inside the stunningly beautiful Hanna Courtyard Garden which you can find nestled within the Western Reserve Historical Society Museum. This is the first time we’ve had the opportunity to shoot there and we had a blast finding all the photographic potential that lay within. We took our time after the ceremony shooting within the courtyard and the rooms adjacent to the courtyard as well on the carousel because what wedding isn’t complete without a carousel ride! The period architecture and the little pools of light all around the original structure was something we could have explored photographically for hours.
After our time at the Garden, we made our way over to the Flats West Bank where the reception took place. Tim, Morgan and I headed over to the bridge near Shooters while Genevieve headed inside to photograph the reception details. Personally, my favorite part of the day came when it was time for us to walk across the rather large parking lot form the Bridge to Windows but Morgan’s shoes were really starting to put the squeeze on her feet. Without missing a beat, Tim put Morgan on his back and carried her all the way from the Bridge to Windows.
One very unique thing to point out about their reception is that almost all the table setting, gift table, and reception details were hand made by Morgan. She even made their wedding rings! Morgan put a lot of heart, time and effort into these projects and it clearly showed, as you can see in the photos below.
Tim and Morgan; thank you so much for trusting us to capture your day! Here are some of our favorites with much more to come!
