Photographing weddings at the Cleveland botanical garden is such a treat. The grounds are immaculate. The buildings have an elegance about them The staff is incredibly friendly. All of these things make for a memorable Cleveland wedding location. This Cleveland botanical garden wedding was extra beautiful thanks to the great light on this particular day.
We started getting ready at the house, which I always love. I feel there is an intimate element to bride’s getting ready at their home or their parents home. Nikki is at the table, writing her note to Jake and everything feels comfortable and natural about this moment. In addition to this sweet moment, Nikki put her dress on in the room she grew up in. These types of situations help build already long-lasting memories for the bride.
As mentioned before, the day was absolutely gorgeous and we were able to take photos on the grounds of the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Nikki’s immaculate wedding dress fit perfectly with the beautiful bridesmaid dresses. Nikki’s bouquet was the perfect accent to her bridal look. Jake was the perfect groom and was completely comfortable in front of the camera.
Once it was time to start the ceremony, the light was creating an amazing look down the aisle. The flower girls and ring bearer stole the show. The perfect Cleveland botanical garden wedding ceremony went off without a hitch and we were now off to the reception.
I was able to do some off camera lighting for the formal dances which really added some contrast to the images that I loved. After the dances came open dance which was a blast. I took Nikki and Jake out for a couple night photos. This blog ends with a solid kiss from the couple, concluding an awesome wedding day!
