Lauren and Matt – Westwood Country Club

This was a first for me, a wedding with twelve kids in it. Honestly, they all held it together as well as any group of twelve kids possibly could. Matt, if I recall correctly is one of nine siblings, and comes from a large Irish family, hence the twelve nieces and nephews. Lauren and Matt’s reception was held at  Westwood Country Club where we were able to get some great pictures while out on the golf course.

Maria and Seth – Hartville Wedding

Andrew thanks Joe Ezzo for assisting with this wedding. The bride and groom prayed together before the ceremony, and held hands facing away from each other so that they could still share their “first look” as Maria walked down the aisle. Maria and Seth’s families prayed together at the altar of Hartville Mennonite Church. The reception was held at Foltz Community Center, where the bridal party surprised guests with a flash mob following Maria and Seth’s first dance as husband and wife. 

Amy Cameron - Such a sweet wedding! Love the pictures. Congratulations to the couple!

Jen and Jason – Marriott Key Center

Jen and Jason couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day. It was pretty amazing how smoothly the day panned out. I’m sure that was partly due to Jen’s own talent with wedding coordinating and also the help of Heidzillas and wedding coordinator, Brittany. Jen and Jason were married at Holy Rosary Church in Little Italy, where her grandma was her matron of honor. Don’t worry, we didn’t make grandma travel around with us for pictures. The reception was held at The Marriott Key Center and I just want to say, that last series of pictures at the end of this post, I was standing on a box, holding up a light, and Jen was laughing at me. Meanwhile, Andrew was all business, and he got some great shots, wouldn’t you agree?  And the last picture, that’s Scott, President of Jerry Bruno Productions, along with his nephew. If you want an amazing DJ, hire them (not that I have favorites).

Jen Tabar - Andrew did such an awesome job!! We LOVED having him at our wedding :) HIRE HIM. He’s the BEST!

Hunter Harrison - Awesome photos, Andrew! Love that you stopped by the Viaduct. It’s one of my favorite places. And the last photo is perfect!

Scott Jones - Great pics, Great bride & groom and a fantastic time. It’s always a pleasure working with you Andrew. I hope to work with you again soon.

Hey, can you send me a copy of that pic with me and Casey? I want to share it with CJ.

Thanks!

Scott E. Jones

Becky and Bret – The Bertram Inn

Becky and Bret had beautiful weather for their spring wedding. They requested having pictures taken around Chagrin Falls, so thanks to great weather, this worked out really well. They also planned a stop at Jekyll’s Kitchen to share a toast with the bridal party and get a few pictures inside the restaurant and on their balcony overlooking the falls.

This couple is the perfect example of why it’s good to have an engagement shoot prior to your wedding. It’s odd for most people to spend an hour or more in front of the camera posing, and all of that fun stuff, so the engagement shoot gives you a chance to get to know the photographer, their style, whether or not you guys all get along, and a chance to relax and have fun with posing. At one point on our walk around Chagrin Falls, I mentioned to Becky that she seemed really comfortable with posing. She said that after looking at her engagement pictures, she felt like she was too uptight, so she was making a conscious effort to have more fun with it. I think it shows in the pictures. They did a great job, and had fun with it!

Becky and Bret’s ceremony was held at St. Rita’s in Solon, and their reception was held at The Bertram Inn. A special part of the evening included Becky’s dad’s band playing at the reception. Family and friends enjoyed watching their first public performance, and I think everyone could tell that it meant a lot to him to perform at his daughter’s wedding.
