Kayla and Matt’s Cleveland Arcade Christmas wedding was a dream…
The gorgeous, deep, rich colors blended so well together and really pulled the whole day together – I mean, Matt’s blue suit was perfection next to Kayla’s incredible Urban Orchid bouquet. It was a freezing cold day with a mix of freezing rain scattered throughout which made it extremely difficult to be outside for more than a few minutes at a time… but Kayla and Matt refused to let that bring them down and that’s what we love to see!
We started the day with the girls getting ready at the bride and groom’s house. Kayla even decided to get her girls together and pop confetti poppers – leaving confetti EVERYWHERE – but it was totally worth it (just check the pictures if you don’t believe me)! The guys got ready down the road at the groom’s parents’ house and from there, we headed to the ceremony at St. Paschal Baylon Catholic Church.
After a beautifully emotional ceremony, we attempted to head to some of our favorite spots in Cleveland, but with the cold, it was hard to stay outside long. We managed to hang out at Voinovich Park and East 4th Street just long enough to get some great shots and head to the Hyatt Regency at the Arcade to warm up (and take more pictures)! Finally, once the reception got started, it was a night full of fun, laughter, and togetherness. It was truly an amazing night. From the emotion filled speeches to a jam packed dance floor – it was perfection from start to finish!
Our favorite moment from this Cleveland Christmas Arcade Wedding was when the bride surprised the groom after dinner by getting up with the band and singing “Natural Woman” to him (flawlessly, I might add). It was such an amazing moment to witness! The groom cried and the bride KILLED it – it was one of the greatest wedding moments we’ve ever been a part of!

WHAT THE BRIDE HAD TO SAY
“Three & Eight is THE BEST. I am so thankful that we found them. Not only are Autumn and Jay wonderful people and so easy to work with but their talent is unmatched. Our engagement photos and wedding photos were just stunning. I know it can be difficult to decide on photographers for your biggest day but trust me, you will not be sorry. Autumn & Jay not only take the most amazing photos (truly art!) but they have the perfect personalities to make you feel comfortable behind the camera and on your wedding day. We loved having them around and they really put us at ease. I will continue to sing their praises to anyone who will listen!” – KAYLA
WHAT THE GROOM HAD TO SAY
“As the groom, I wasn’t as involved in the wedding planning as my better half. But one aspect that was important to me, was our choice of wedding photographers. I wanted to make sure that we chose photographers who would capture the emotion of our big day. Photographers who would be easy to work with and make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Autumn and Jay are all that and more. Their friendly personalities and artistic style were just what we were looking for. They made being photographed feel natural and the finished product that we received blew us away. My wife and I are still in awe of both our engagement and wedding day photos. Hiring Three & Eight Photography was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning and we will be recommending their services to all our family and friends getting married in the future.” – MATT
