Michelle and Josh were married inside La Vera Party Center in Willoughby Hills, Ohio. I love that they chose to do a first look and all of their bridal party photos before the evening ceremony, especially since it was a winter wedding with a 5pm sunset. What else did I LOVE? I loved the whole holiday theme!! From the girls cute red flannels while getting ready, to the red and green pops in the bouquets, to the centerpieces and ornament guests favors, and even the card house that the groom made himself!
We started the day at their hotel, grabbing the final touches of the girls getting ready and a first look with her dad. Then it was time to have a first look with the groom! Michelle was so excited she practically ran through the lobby LOL! Then it was off to downtown Cleveland, for formals at The Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade. I am so glad that Michelle reached out to them and secured a permit for us to take photos inside for an hour, since mid December weather can be very unpredictable here in NE Ohio. The Arcade is stunning, especially at Christmastime!
Then we headed to the ceremony and reception site, La Vera Party Center. They had a beautiful traditional ceremony, the the ceremony spot was transformed to the dance floor, which was packed all night long. You have to check out the twirl of Michelle’s dress! What a wedding to end my 2019 season!! Be sure to check out all the vendors below!
