Jimmy + Erica: Cleveland Ohio Wedding
I can’t start this post without thanking the ever-so-fabulous Tess from Tess Smith Photography for sending Jimmy & Erica my way. Tess is Erica’s sister in law and was part of the bridal party so was unable to photograph the day. To say that I’m thankful for the referral doesn’t say enough – Erica and Jimmy are so perfect together and having the opportunity to capture the way he looked at her the entire day – I am so lucky.
We started the day off at Erica’s mom’s home getting ready with an amazing group of ladies:
Erica made her veil herself – it was stunning.
Erica’s flower girls were SO adorable and SO excited about their gifts 🙂
Her shoes and dress were to die for. Give me a pair of cute shoes and I am one happy photographer.
Erica’s bridesmaids were amazing – especially the maid of honor. While everyone else was getting ready, she was busy “tying” up the loose ends!
Seriously, couldn’t get enough of her sweet flower girls. Love these shots of them getting their makeup done by their Aunt.
And it was time for the dress!
Mother-Daughter moments. Make me tear up.
Erica made the most beautiful bride.
The ceremony was held at St. Luke’s in Lakewood and was ended with a bubble exit – I am always up for a bubble exit 🙂
And there were bubbles!
I was so excited when Erica told me that she wanted to go to one of my favorite spots in Cleveland for her bridal shots – The Martin Luther King Drive Gardens. Because there was a foot of snow on the ground and it was f-rrrr-eezing out, we only stopped at the italian garden (my favorite!) for a short while, but in that short while, we made some photo-magic.
The reception was held at a venue I have been longing to shoot at for its history and the gorgeous details throughout. The Glidden house staff were phenomenal to work with and I loved the flow of the rooms.
This cake. Two words. Beautiful + Delicious.
The reception was rockin’ from the first dance through the end of the night …
