Rutva and Tom traveled to Cleveland from Columbus to tie the knot lakeside at The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake, and their wedding day was full of fun, color, and so much love!
My assistant Sammy joined me for the day, and we began with Rutva and Tom as they got ready separately at the lodge. The morning rain stopped just in time for their first look in front of the gazebo, and we moved into portraits from there in the park nearby overlooking Lake Erie. After that, Tom joined his family and friends for his baraat, making a grand entrance in a vintage car! (Although, Tom couldn't resist jumping out of it and joining the dancing part way up the drive!) Rutva and Tom's Hindu ceremony took place in the gazebo just as the sun began to come out, and we did family portraits afterward on the lawn nearby. Family and friends then headed to Geneva Township Park for a luncheon heading into the afternoon.
After lunch and a quick break, Rutva and Tom got ready in their reception outfits and we did more portraits outside as cocktail hour began on the terrace. Guests then headed inside for Rutva and Tom's reception. The party featured heartfelt toasts, delicious food, personalized performances, and a packed dance floor. The clouds came back in the evening, preventing us from doing sunset portraits, but Rutva and Tom were still up for a few last images at dusk by the gazebo.
Rutva and Tom's wedding was such a blast to be a part of, and I am so happy for them both. Congratulations!!
