We had so much at Alexis and Matt’s Cleveland wedding! We love our job. When we get to travel for our couples, we have even more fun. Cleveland was absolutely gorgeous too. Check out all the photos here (CLICK ME)! These two met at Purdue University. She was in a sorority; He was in a fraternity. The rest is history! Now they reside in Cleveland Ohio together.
Alexis spent the morning getting ready with her girls where there was champagne, laughter, and lots of love spread all around. Alexis put on her beautiful, strapless lace gown with her mom in the other room. She then walked out to her bridesmaids where they all oooh’d and ahh’d at their beautiful friend on her big day! The bridesmaids wore long, powder blue gowns, all slightly different styles, and the groomsmen wore fitted navy suits. Needless to say, everyone looked awesome! Alexis then had a first look with her father where there was some sweet selfie action and some gift exchanging!
Alexis and Matt got married at the gorgeous Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist in Cleveland. After the ceremony, all of their guests lined up on the steps outside the church. They cheered for the newlyweds as they walked hand-in-hand together as husband and wife. After the ceremony, Alexis, Matt and their awesome bridal party (along with their awesome photographers) left to take some photos! We went over by the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland for some pictures by the water. We then traveled to the Italian Cultural Gardens for more photos – it was beautiful! There were so many flowers and fun colors. Not to mention the weather was perfect. Not too warm, not too cool.
The reception was at the gorgeous Shoreby Club in Cleveland. The venue overlooked Lake Eerie where there was a stunning rocky coastline – looked like it was straight out of a volcano. These guys went all out too! Everything was beautiful, from the table settings to the venue tent itself! After toasts, cake cutting, and some awesome dancing, we took Alexis and Matt out for some epic sunset pictures. We’re not joking when we say it looked like we were on the coast of Hawaii! That rocky coastline was absolutely breathtaking.
We loved our trip out to Cleveland and the opportunity to take pictures of Alexis and Matt’s big day. Thanks for the fun day! Hope we captured your wedding day exactly how you hoped!

Oh, we are SO excited to share this one with you. Presenting Emerald and Nick, two of our newest newlyweds! We couldn’t wait for this Clear lake wedding, just like we couldn’t wait for their Clear Lake engagement session (CLICK ME)! This lake house wedding was to die for! Just look at the photos. We were Nick’s sisters’ wedding photographers too, so when we got the opportunity to take pictures at Emerald and Nick’s wedding, we were thrilled! We love when we get to see families again and work with awesome people.
Before we get in their awesome wedding, we’ve got to brag about our bride and groom really quick… These two know how to dress, as they are both passionate about fashion. It’s always so cool when our grooms wear something outside of the box. Nick had probably the coolest suit I had ever seen – Just look at it! It had a floral design on top of an already well designed navy suit – We’re kind of obsessed with his look! Of course though, no groom (or really awesome suit) can outshine the beauty of a bride on the wedding day! Emerald wore a beautiful satin and tulle mermaid gown with a deep, sweetheart neckline. It had a dainty jeweled belt with matching jeweled shoulder straps and a three tiered skirt bottom – She had custom touches added to her gown to make her dress perfect for their big day. These guys had a slam dunk for wardrobe. Needless to say, we loved it!
Nick and his groomsmen arrived by boat before the ceremony. Emerald and her bridesmaids spent the entire morning getting ready at Nick’s Family’s Clear Lake home, where the ceremony would later take place. As everyone was finishing up getting ready, Nick and his groomsmen arrived by boat to his family home. We took some family pictures outside and then it was ceremony time!
The ceremony was so beautiful! Since it was at Nick’s family lake home, the ceremony was right by the beach on their property: guests had a view of the beautiful couple and the beautiful lake. Nick hand made the wooden arch arbor used during the ceremony – it was so cool! Something really special about Emerald and Nick’s ceremony were their ring bearers… there were two of them, and they were dogs! Even they got to feel pretty on their owners’ big day – they wore floral rings around their necks. It was adorable! The two exchanged vows, kissed, and were married! We loved this Clear Lake wedding.
After taking some family portraits and getting group shots of the whole bridal party, we all hopped on their pontoon boat to head to the reception across the lake! It was kind of scary though because we had a lot of people on the boat – almost sunk! The reception was at the Clear Lake Yacht club, where everyone danced the night away! We even got to hear one of Nick’s own songs! We so enjoyed being a part of your wedding, Emerald and Nick. We hope you enjoy your photos for the years to come!
