Dan and Rachel had such a blast at their wedding at the Cleveland Tudor Arms Hotel and we couldn’t have been happier to be there with them. Neither Dan or Rachel are the type to seek out being the center of attention but the inevitable pre-wedding nerves melted away when they saw each other and then surrounded themselves with their family and bridal party. The joy and love shared by those surrounding these two was so evident and such a pleasure to document.
While we spent most of the day inside the historic Tudor Arms Hotel, we did venture out to the Cleveland Museum of Art for some outdoor photos. We were able to squeeze in a few minutes before those dark, apocalyptic clouds rolled in and the temperature started to drop. Security at the Museum wouldn’t let us cut through the South Entrance so everyone huffed it around the building to get inside just in time for the skies let loose.
The ceremony took place in the Tudor Room under a stunning chuppah designed by long time family friend Ric Eickoff. Ric came out of retirement to help design and coordinate the day and he did a fantastic job doing so.
After the ceremony, everyone made their way over to the Crystal Ballroom for dinner and dancing, courtesy of The Orchestra by Cleveland Music Group. As you can see in the photos below, everyone was having a fantastic time and there was barely an empty space on the dance floor.
Rachel and Dan, thank you so much for trusting us to document your day; it was truly an honor!
