Family, beautiful details, and true love shared the spotlight on Crystal and Sean’s wedding day. The morning began bright and early at the Westin in Downtown Cleveland. Crystal and her sisters and friends got into their dresses and wedding-day makeup in one suite, while Sean and guys all got ready in another. Once Crystal was dressed and ready to go, her father stopped by for a first look at his grown up little girl, and that moment was so sweet!

We then made our way to beautiful Saint Christopher Parish in Rocky River. The church was full of love and excitement as Crystal and Sean’s family and friends witnessed their first look at the altar. The soon-to-be newly weds were beaming! Father blessed the rings in the holy waters of the baptismal fount; a beautiful reminder of their lifelong journey in the Christian faith and the continuation of that mission into married life together.

After family photos inside the church and formal bridal party photos at Squire’s Castle in Willoughby Hills, we had some time to catch some cozy and glamorous portraits of the bride and groom. While the December evening was chilly, these two embraced the frosty air for some wintry scenes featuring the cool blue sky and exposed brick of the castle. Back at the Westin, so many of the gorgeous finishings in the grand lobby and in-house Urban Farmer restaurant caught our eye. (This photo op gave Crystal and Sean a few minutes to warm up before heading upstairs to the reception.)

The simplicity of fresh greens and candlelight complemented the grand lighting and bold details of the ballroom. The speeches were hilarious, the first dance was choreographed and performed to perfection, and the party was wild and fun as everyone (even sweet Grandma) danced the night away!
