dana + aaron | STRONGWATER FOOD AND SPIRITS | MODERN, INDUSTRIAL, WEDDING | COLUMBUS, OHIO

Oh my, where do I start with this sweet, fun-loving and incredibly adorable wedding? Dana reached out to us over a year ago and described her wedding as a mix of family traditions with modern elements, pops of color and good ol' quirky fun (oh, and caricature artists!).  We had so much fun documenting this day, and think that every couple should be surprised with a tandem bike just before portraits ;)

Congrats Dana and Aaron!

jessica + matt | cleveland rail yard wedding.

jessica called us because her original photographer had fallen through.  "Call it kismet!" she said to me. Twenty minutes later we were chatting as if we were old friends, talking about abandoned railroads, the charm of old rusty spaces, and the beauty of the rustbelt. Exactly what jessica wanted for her wedding. She and matt grew up in seedy underbelly of cleveland, and while they had both moved out to colorado, they kept insisting "if we wanted another pretty rustic wedding, we'd just stay put! but we are want to do something different!".  

the culmination was a lithuanian / lebanese cultural infusion with a backdrop of cleveland's  best kept secrets. we hope you enjoy.
