Amanda and Mike's wedding kicked off the month of October and it was the perfect Cleveland wedding! Despite a few raindrops in the afternoon, the weather cooperated and it ended up being a beautiful early fall day. I had been looking forward to Amanda and Mike's wedding for some time, and between the intricate details, adorable flower girls and ring bearer, and Amanda and Mike's sweet love for each other, it did not disappoint!
We began the day at St. Bede Catholic Church in Mentor, where Amanda and Mike got ready separately before their ceremony. Afterward, we went downtown to do portraits with their bridal party at the Cleveland Museum of Art and Wade Oval. The flower girls just loved spinning in their dresses and feeling like princesses, just like beautiful Amanda. Amanda, Mike, and I then explored a bit around the lake before we all headed over to the Cleveland Marriot East for their reception.
The reception was full of thoughtful details, laughter, tears (particularly Mike's brother's toast as best man!), and lots of dancing. There was even polka! We finished the evening with a few quick night shots outside the front of the hotel.
Congratulations to Amanda and Mike!
