Eric and Taylor are artists, young professionals, and adventure-seekers. Before jetting off to their honeymoon in Hawaii, they celebrated the start of their marriage in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
It was a frosty November morning when we arrived at the Ballroom at Park Lane. With the spritz of hairspray and the swipe of makeup brushes, Kreate Studio and Flawless Airbrush Makeup gave Taylor a stunning look of classic Hollywood glamour. The bride then stepped into her bead-embroidered ivory gown from Allures Bridal and tucked her classic chapel veil into her graceful half-up do.
Moments later, she was greeting Eric on the front steps of Park Lane. The irresistible joy and excitement of that moment made us grinning from ear to ear behind the camera. These two are an adorable match! We then had some time to walk Wade Oval with the two of them; an opportunity for the bride and groom to snuggle and spend some time together before the festivities were set to begin.
The ballroom back at Park Lane made an elegant venue for Taylor and Eric’s ceremony. One highlight came when Eric’s younger brother collaborated with Taylor’s guitar-playing brother in a duet. There was so much musical talent in the room that day!
Once the rows of ceremony chairs were transformed into beautifully decorated, candle-lit dinner tables; Taylor and Eric cut the cake and all enjoyed a delicious meal from Driftwood Catering. Taylor’s childhood friend, Eric’s little brother, and Eric’s grandpa all made rousing speeches that had everyone laughing and cheering. Next, it was time to take over the dancefloor. These two pulled off a perfectly graceful first dance, and, much later in the night, brought out some incredible coordinated dance moves to How Long Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding. Their guests went wild!
Eric and Taylor are so wonderfully invested in the world around them, but they are simultaneously so calm and embracing of whatever happens. Their wedding day was flawless from start to finish, but, despite all the focused coordination and planning, they did focus on enjoying their day! We were so happy to be there to capture all of their beauty and excitement. The beginning of the greatest adventure of all!
