Kate + Tina

Some people love cats and some people love dogs.  Some people use these specifics likes to find their perfect match.  Some people, like Kate and Tina, learn to appreciate their differences in preference for pets.  Tina loves dogs, Kate loves cats, and they both love each other. 

I love how their very different personalities compliment one another so well.  Working with these two was so much fun.  I loved capturing the dynamics of their relationship on camera. 

October weddings in Cleveland are so unpredictable.  We can have gorgeous fall colors, freezing cold rain, or maybe even some snow.  My October wedding portfolio is so diverse, you’d never guess they are all a few weeks apart. 

Kate and Tina got married on October 28th.  They chose a masquerade theme with black, white, and ivory as their wedding colors. 

Kate’s wedding dress was a gorgeous tea length gown.  Having a tea length wedding dress was the perfect choice because she didn't have to worry about it getting muddy from the damp grass during the first look and formals.  She chose a birdcage veil which complimented her dress perfectly.  Her bridal jewelry were a perfect addition as well.  

Kate isn’t a high heels kind of girl so she decided on classic Chucks instead.  In fact, the entire wedding party wore Converse Chuck Taylors. 

Kate and Tina decided to do a first look at Bradley Woods Reservation.  It was a cold and windy day but the colors looked gorgeous in the park.  It was a great location for their wedding party shots too!

The ceremony and reception were held at Wagners of Westlake.  The gorgeous cake was created by Top Tier Cakes.  More of their amazing cake samples can be found on their website.  

Another cute detail was the cookie favors created by A Little Carried Away.  They were a wedding favor given to all of the guests.  I highly recommend checking them out and contacting Carrie if you have a specialty cookie order in mind.  Her designs are beautiful, and the cookies are delicious! 

Everyone had a great time at the reception that evening.  Congratulations Kate and Tina!
