Angelica & Nathan: St. Albert the Great Church & Weymouth Country Club
It was wonderful to photograph this amazing couples wedding! They lucked out with a perfect day - sunny and warm. We met up with the bride and groom at their respective parents house for getting ready pictures and to photograph each of them reading their notes and opening their gift (best reaction ever Angelica!) from the other. The bride also did a first look with her bridesmaids and her father.
Then it was time to head over to the church to prepare for the ceremony! The mass was a traditional full Catholic ceremony. After the mass, we took a few family and bride/groom photos in the church before heading over to the church hall for lunch. The limo picked us all up at 1pm and we drove up to the Cleveland Art Museum and to the Cultural Gardens for their pictures. The last stop was at the Medina Square gazebo for a couple images.
The couple greeted their guests via a receiving line into the reception during cocktail hour. At 7pm they were announced into the reception and immediately cut their cake. Then they did the mother/son dance, the father/daughter dance and then the first dance. During their first dance, the wedding party and family members came onto the dance floor to wrap the couple together with streamers (an Italian tradition). It was a lot of fun! A prayer and toasts followed. Then it was time for a delicious dinner! After dinner, I took the couple outside for 5mins of sunset pictures on the golf course. Then all the fun started! The Tarantella (a group of folk dances to an upbeat tempo) started off a fun night of dancing with probably the most guests I've seen on a dancefloor at a wedding!
Congratulations Angelica & Nathan! It was my pleasure to photograph your wedding (and your surprise proposal over a year ago). I wish you both have a lifetime full of love and happiness! Here are just a few of the many images they will receive!
