Stephanie and Tom are two of the sweetest souls and from the moment we first chatted through email, I couldn't wait to capture their wedding! Stephanie and Tom met while studying at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, and I even traveled there for their engagement session last summer. For their wedding, however, they opted to celebrate with their family and friends in their current home of Cleveland.
My assistant Sammy and I began the day at the Aloft Cleveland Downtown hotel where Stephanie and Tom got ready separately. We then headed to the roof of the attached Ernst & Young building for their first look, which was full of love, laughter, and tears. We then reunited with their wedding party downstairs and drove to Voinovich Park for portraits. It began to rain at the park, but Stephanie and Tom didn't let it faze them (plus, stormy skies always make for incredible backdrops, so it was worth it anyway!) After portraits by the lakeshore, we returned to The Flats for a few more images by the Main Avenue Bridge.
Luckily, the rain cleared up soon after that and the sun came out just in time for Stephanie and Tom's ceremony on the rooftop of Ernst & Young. Family portraits and cocktail hour followed, featuring lots of custom details and even a traditional Pittsburgh cookie table! Afterwards Stephanie and Tom celebrated the rest of the night with cake, toasts, and dancing, but we still managed to find a few minutes to sneak away from the party for sunset and night portraits.
Congrats to Stephanie and Tom!
