Welcome to Kayle & Chad's big day!
We share a really great mutual friend (what up, James!) so I was delighted when officially asked to shoot their wedding ;) Kayle had started talking to me about photographing their wedding, when she had a feeling Chad would be popping the question a while back. So sweet! Kayle dreamed of having a glamorous vintage-inspired classic wedding, she did a lot of DIY and all of the vendors were either friends, or businesses her family has worked with in the past. These two rocked it with so much style.
SERIOUSLY?! @ Kayle in this dress! BEAUTIFUL!
Chad & Kayle decide a First Look would fit best into their wedding day timeline.
We did portraits at the Cleveland Public Library downtown, it was a wonderful reason to get out of the cold!
Huge thank you to one of my own favorites, Kristine Borns, she always takes care of me and brings her A-game when she shoots with me. I love when we get to second for each other so much, it's kind of hilarious how excited I get.
I think we moved lightning speed to take these outdoor portraits at one of the gardens at Cleveland Cultural Gardens.
Chad with their son before the ceremony! Seriously cute.
Can you believe Kayle made this brooch bouquet herself? So pretty!
These two were so much fun and wonderful to work with!
Kayle on their First Look:
"This was the highlight of my entire day. As I walked in I saw the back of Chad standing in front of the fountain at the hotel. There were over 50 hotel guests watching us smiling and telling me how beautiful I looked as I walked up behind him so he could see me for the first time. I walked up tapped him on the shoulder and he turned around and was speechless.
I've never felt more beautiful in my life, that moment was so surreal!"
