It’s been a long time coming be we are finally ready to feature our final wedding of 2018! We couldn’t have been happier to end our year with Billy and Grace for their wedding at the Cleveland Renaissance Hotel and St. John’s Cathedral. We first got to know Grace and Billy during their engagement session this past spring. That was the first time we heard their story of how they first met in Kindergarten and where each other’s first kiss in 6th grade! They officially started dating their sophomore year of high school and have been together ever since. Because of their long relationship, Grace and Billy’s families have had quite a while to get to know each other and become friends which made for such an awesome vibe on the wedding day.
The day started with preparations at the Renaissance before heading over to the gorgeous and iconic St. John’s Cathedral for the ceremony. Grace and Billy stole their fair share of quick glances and short whispers to each other as guests looked on during the homily. Then, it was all smiles and a few happy tears as they exchanged their vows.
After the ceremony, we set off with the bridal party to dodge raindrops during their creative and bridal party photos. Grace got us into the new Collision Bend Brewery which has an amazing view of the Shoreway Bridge from their patio. The rain started to get a little harder to dodge so we finished up our creative time at the Cleveland Public Library.
Meanwhile, Stephen Tokar, Shout Band, and the staff at the Renaissance where preparing a jar dropping reception in the Grand Ballroom to celebrate the day’s events. We loved the ambiance that the forest themed centerpieces and warm uplighting provided and the dance floor was packed the entire night.
Billy and Grace – you two where some of the most fun, kind, warm, and welcoming people we have worked with. After meeting you families, it’s easy to see where that comes from. Congrats, you two!
