Chris & Andrea’s Ohio wedding is extra special to me because Chris is my cousin! So after memories of playing cowboys and Indians with my sisters and cousins growing up, it was amazing to be there to capture his wedding day! He began attending a church in Ohio when he met Andrea, and through their relationship they not only grew closer to each other but to God. They have plans to continue to serve the Lord together, and I couldn’t be more thrilled or honored I got to photograph their wedding day!
It was a chilly, slightly rainy day, but their smiles and joy keep making me forget about the weather! We went to their beautiful reception venue, Dino’s at Acacia for the sweetest first look, and then we headed to the ceremony at their church!
After their reception back at Dino’s at Acacia, we headed towards downtown Cleveland for more portraits at The Cleveland Museum of Art! They held each other close since it was breezy and chilly, but you’d never tell from the photos! I asked Chris if he was doing ok, and he replied, “Yes, I live here ha!” I guess I forget it’s normally below 50 up in Cleveland, and I’m way too accustomed 80-degree southern weather- even in November! 😉 But they were such troopers, and their beautiful deep red wedding with bursts of sunflowers through the day has me on cloud 9!
Enjoy some favorites from this Ohio wedding day!
