Laura’s Ariel International Center wedding day actually began in the beautiful new Hilton downtown which, most noteworthy overlooks the beautiful city of Cleveland. The light was pouring in from the windows. As a result, we were able to take beautiful and dramatic getting ready photos. I really love the photo of Laura’s bridesmaid seeing her for the first time. The excitement level is all the way up!
Another awesome part of the day was that Laura and Chris pulled some strings for their wedding day. As a result, I was able to photograph their first look in one of the coolest locations. We got private access under a bridge in downtown Cleveland. I’m not sure that it gets any better than that. Consequently, we also photographed all of the bridal portraits in this beautiful location.
And now it was time for the wedding ceremony at the Ariel International Center. Because of the sunny conditions, Chris had sunglasses made for all of the wedding guests. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The blue skies made a perfect backdrop for the ceremony. After the ceremony and cocktail hour, we went into the reception. Speeches were given at the head table which had the Cleveland skyline showing beautifully behind it.
Ariel International staff then served dinner. Finally, Eric then opened the dance floor. The dance floor was insane. You can see this by the guest behind spun around upside down while doing the robot. It was truly a dance move that I’ve never seen before and hope to never see again for the safety of the kids!
