Alyssa and Andrew celebrated their wedding on a beautiful and sunny July Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio! Excitement was in the air when we arrived to Alyssa’s getting ready suite to find the bride’s tribe grinning ear to ear! The bridesmaids were showering Alyssa in so much support and love (and champagne!) Andrew was all smiles, too, as he got ready for the ceremony with his groomsmen.
St. Monica Catholic Church in Garfield Heights welcomed Alyssa and Andrew’s family and friends for a beautiful wedding ceremony! Beforehand, Alyssa shared a first look with her father that made everyone melt. After the vows and the rings were exchanged, Alyssa and Andrew left the church in a tunnel of bubbles and cheers!
We traveled with the bridal party to the Italian Cultural Garden in University Circle for formal portraits. The sun was high in the sky, but the trees and foliage created just enough shade for bright and colorful photos.
The party really heated up at the reception! Everyone danced the night away at Blue Heron Event Center. The cake cutting was sweet, the first dance was charming, and the dancefloor was always packed! Shoutout to Andrew’s brother and Alyssa’s sister who offered some incredible toasts! We were so inspired to see the love and support that these two received from their family that day. Alyssa and Andrew are so sweet and fun, two ingredients that we hope their marriage will be full of! We wish you a lifetime of laughter and adventures!
