Lauren and Rizwan tied the knot this summer in New York City and honeymooned- with their whole family!- shortly afterward in Italy. However, they also opted to throw a hometown reception for friends and family in Cleveland in September. Lauren's mother Lucy took care of much of the planning and coordinating, and everything came together perfectly for their evening at Landerhaven.
I began the afternoon at Lauren's parents' home in Chagrin Falls where we captured a few portraits in their newly landscaped backyard. We then drove up the road to Landerhaven, where we grabbed a few more portraits during golden hour as guests begun to arrive. Lauren and Rizwan's reception featured a heartfelt toast by Lucy, lots of thoughtful details like images from Italy and personal champagne bottles for each guest, and of course, lots of dancing! It was such a pleasure to be a part of Lauren and Rizwan's cross-continent wedding celebrations, and a few favorite images are below! Congratulations to these two!!
