Sara and Greg's gorgeous wedding day at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Cleveland was nothing short of perfect. From their beautiful ceremony to the cocktail hour in the amazing lobby at the hotel to the super fun and dancing filled reception, it was a great day from start to finish.
Sara was surprisingly calm and excited about her day. She and Greg decided not only to do a first look prior to their ceremony but they actually exchanged some private vows to each other before the ceremony as well. The gorgeous 2nd floor lobby was the perfect, private place for them to do this.
I was able to have a solid 45 minutes or so for detail photos (which I absolutely LOVE). I got to take Sara's stunning Carolina Herrera gown to the amazing staircase in the hotel for some photos of the dress and then I got to play with her invitation suite. Sara's mom had designed and painted the flowers used in her invitation, so I knew I had to get them in the detail photos.
Sara and Greg didn't have a wedding party, so we got to enjoy spending the hour or so before their ceremony photographing them in the beautiful hotel. The wedding day was very hot and muggy, so we only stepped outside for a few minutes. (But when you have a gorgeous backdrop like the Renaissance Hotel...you use every little corner of it!)
The ceremony room was turned over expertly and so quickly for the reception. A lot of times during wedding days we don't get the chance to have a nearly empty reception room, so this was a treat!
Their wedding cake was simple and stunning with some amazing Calla Lillies. The centerpieces were elegant and refreshing...and the food was DELISH!
Sara and her father had such a lovely father/daughter dance, it was mesmerizing to watch them dance.
Their family and friends had a blast to such a wonderful mix of music. Overall, their wedding day went off without a hitch and it was just beautiful. I'm so glad I got to be a part of their beautiful wedding.
