It is no coincidence that the last wedding of every season becomes a lasting highlight. It’s the end of a busy and exciting summer, and, as with anything else we love, we aren’t ready for all the love, all the emotions, and the thrill of wedding celebrations to be over!
Christina and Jon’s elegant and timeless wedding day was full of familial closeness and joy that captivated us from the first moment we stepped inside Christina’s family home that bright sunny morning. We arrived to find Christina and her mom, sister, and maid of honor Jennifer, all gathered around a sunlit kitchen table, adding the finishing touches to their makeup. The mood was peaceful and cheery. We photographed all of the bride’s details–her pastel floral-printed sandals, pearl drop earrings, and delicate pearl necklace that would accompany her grandmother’s slightly reimagined wedding gown that day. Christina looked majestic in its button-up v neck and full-length silhouette.
After playing a few melodies from the Phantom of the Opera on the piano and taking care of a few finish touches, Christina was ready for her first look with her soon-to-be husband. We headed out to the nearby wilderness for that special moment, with the fiery golden landscape beckoning to us! That first moment between Christina and Jon was so sweet.
Following a few quick photos at the Brecksville Reservation and a stop along the west back of the Flats in downtown Cleveland, we made our way to our final destination—the elegant lower level of Ohio City’s famed Crop Bistro—for the ceremony and intimate family dinner. Parents, grandparents, cousins, and brand-new baby nieces looked on as Christina and Jon declared their love for one another at the base of the candlelit grand staircase. The first dances were so sweet and the toasts reminded us of the fleeting yet meaningful time we have on earth with those we love.
That night was the perfect finale to a season full of true love, sacrifice, and life lived! We can’t wait to get 2021 started with our heads full of inspiration from 2020’s remarkable wedding couples.
