Gorgeous wedding at the Holden Arboretum shot by Cleveland Photographers
Alex & Cory made for such a great day shooting their wedding. Their laid back, fun sense of humor kept the day stressless as it should be. Unique as she is, Alex choose a red bridal dress and wow did she look stunning! Then there is Cory... coming up with his own poses, his modeling experience sure made our job easy! You guys are a match made in heaven, there is a great future ahead of you.
As always, I like to have my brides say a few words about their wedding day, give advise to future wedding couples. Here is what Alex had to say.
All the ladies arrived to the Arboretum fully dressed and after a few last minute touch ups we were ready to get started. It helped taking photos with just the girls to get my mind off the nerves of the day. My advice to future brides is to step back and look at your wedding as a whole. I started getting wrapped up in all the details and making every little thing special or hold meaning. My original veil idea was to complicated and didn’t work out, which forced me to take a step back and I realized that keeping it simple (well, simple for me) was the right choice. It was really important to me for us to experience a genuine reaction to seeing each other for the first time. The need for a “First Look” arose and was hands down the BEST choice we made, THANK YOU CHERYL! I love this photo because it captures the emotion we felt seeing each other and everyone’s exciting who’s hiding in the background. The tree! I had no idea at the time the beauty that was behind me, this picture is my #1 favorite of the lot and it just shows that trusting your photographer is key. Not taking ourselves too seriously throughout the day lead to some amazing portraits and even better memories.
