Downtown Cleveland EY Rooftop Wedding | Maria + Jon

This sweet, fun, awesome couple had such an incredible downtown Cleveland EY Rooftop Wedding in September and we are so happy we got to be a part of it. First of all, the Ernst & Young Rooftop (Lago Events at the Aloft Hotel) is the PERFECT spot for a gorgeous ceremony. Then from there, we adventured around Cleveland hitting up the best spots, including East 4th Street and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before heading to Windows on the River for a perfect reception.

So, without further ado, let’s jump right into the pictures, shall we? We start with the details…

Rainy Cleveland Wedding at Thorncreek Winery | Alice + Halden

We love when couples brave the elements – and Alice and Halden’s rainy Cleveland Wedding at Thorncreek Winery was definitely an example of braving the elements. With a forecast showing nothing but a cold, steady rain for the entire day, ultimately this awesome couple decided to keep their outdoor wedding outdoors! After all, there were plenty of umbrellas to go around, and when you’ve chosen a venue with a beautiful outdoor space, you take advantage of it. It was so worth it and a little rain didn’t hurt anyone!!

Check out Alice and Halden’s wedding pictures for yourself, as always, we start with the details…

Cleveland Summer Wedding at the Hyatt Arcade | Diva + Jon

This Cleveland Summer Wedding at the Hyatt Arcade was an amazing day with these two beautiful, fun, happy people!! The forecast was calling for rain all day and we had a rain plan that we expected to follow. But incredibly, we didn’t run into one single drop of rain the entire day, no joke!

Diva and Jon began their day getting ready at the Arcade and they decided to do a first look (yessssss!). After the first look, we ventured all around downtown Cleveland a bit to hit up some of their favorite spots. Once we completed downtown pictures, we went back the Arcade for the ceremony and to party the night away. Everything was perfect and these two couldn’t have planned a more beautiful wedding day if they tried! Let’s jump into the pictures, shall we?

We start with the details, as always…

Cleveland Westin Summer Greek Wedding | Kirstin + Andreas

This Cleveland summer Greek wedding has got to be one of our favorites to date! Kirstin and Andreas have been best friends for ten years and celebrating their love was beautiful, amazing, and so much fun! We started the day out at the Westin where the girls and guys got ready separately. From there we headed to St. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church for the ceremony which was all kinds of Greek perfection. After that, we spent time at the Cleveland Museum of Art for bridal party pictures before heading back to the Westin for the rest of the evening for a fantastic reception. Without further ado, here are the pictures…

Let’s start with the details…

Classic Summer Cleveland Wedding | Heather + DJ

We loved being a part of this gorgeous, amazing day with Heather and DJ! With threats of thunderstorms all day long, these guys didn’t let it phase them at all, and luckily everything ran smoothly all and everyone stayed dry. We even got to see the sun in the afternoon and it was absolutely perfect! The day started out with the ceremony at St. Albert the Great in North Royalton then we adventured around downtown Cleveland (hitting up East 4th Street and the East 9th Pier, of course) before ending the night with an incredible, fun, and gorgeous reception at Carrie Cerinos. And fun, is definitely an understatement for what this reception was…

If we had to pick a favorite part of this wedding day, it would be the speeches for sure. Heather’s dad gave a speech in the form of a hilarious poem that he put together himself, while the best men had everyone laughing during their speeches as well. Finishing them out, though, were the bride’s sisters, who put together a rap (set to Heather’s favorite rap song) depicting Heather and DJ’s relationship. It was hysterical and EVERYONE loved it. We may have never laughed so hard during speeches in our lives!

So here’s to Heather and DJ’s gorgeous summer Cleveland wedding, enjoy the pictures, as always, we start with the details…
