Emerald & Navy Wedding – Landerhaven – Mr. & Mrs. Kilcher – Lindsay Dawn Photography – Cleveland Wedding Photographer

Amanda and Sean had the most perfect wedding day this past fall! It was my second trip back to the beautiful Landerhaven Events center, and I was so happy to be back. They were married under a heated tent, which was attached to the grand ballroom that their reception was held in. I absolutely loved all of the emerald green and navy touches, as well as the subtle gold.

Amanda and Sean have the most amazing chemistry, and are just naturals in front of the camera. Candids are my favorite, and they nailed those along with the formal poses. Their family and bridal party were such a blast too!! We did a first look with Amanda’s grandma, and their smiles brought me to tears! Her and Sean wrote letters to each other, and watching her read his letter was also a tearjerking moment.

Amanda is a school teacher, and her family even surprised her with having her whole class and their parents at the ceremony. They were the first thing she saw when she entered the ceremony tent, and it was nothing but smiles and tears down the aisle. Sean and Amanda had a sand ceremony, which brought a lot of laughs, and some beautiful art to keep forever.

The reception was insane! I haven’t seen a dance floor that packed all night in years! The crowd was non stop dancing, and their was even a Spanish coffee bar! Did I mention the ice cream canoe? Yup! Landerhaven staff impressed everyone with a giant canoe filled with ice cream and all the toppings for guests to build their own sundaes. Such a hit!

Mr. & Mrs. Lewis - Christmas Themed Wedding - The Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade

Mr. & Mrs. Lewis – Christmas Themed Wedding – The Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade – La Vera Party Center – Lindsay Dawn Photography – Cleveland Wedding Photographer

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!

Maroon Bells Colorado Engagement Session - Rachel & Matt

Colorado Destination & Cleveland Hometown Engagement Photos – Rachel & Matt – Lindsay Dawn Photography – Northeast Ohio & Destination Wedding Photographer

When Rachel & Matt told me about their vacation plans for Colorado, and that they wanted to take their engagement photos there, I was so thrilled at the idea! I mean, how freaking awesome is that?! They had plans to stay in Breckenridge, CO, take their photos somewhere in the Rocky Mountains nearby, then head to Denver to stay with family and attend the Browns versus Broncos game. They had originally planned on hiring a local photographer for the mountain photos, until I reached out and let them know that I had family there to stay with and that I would love to take them. So, they bought me a flight out there for the first weekend in November and we did it!!

I decided to make a weekend of it, and take my husband along since he had never seen the Rocky Mountains or Colorado. Rachel & I decided on Maroon Bells, which is really two mountain faces overlooking a lake in Aspen, Colorado. So, my husband I flew in to Denver and grabbed our rental car and drove the 4 hours in to the mountains. Unfortunately, the directions I had took us to the other side of the lake, to the actually hiking trail in the middle of no where. Rachel and Matt were in the right spot, but had no cell service. I tried calling, texting, Facebook calling, emailing, and nothing. So, my husband and I franticly made our way to the other side of the mountain just as a panicked Rachel and Matt were leaving. Both them and us thinking something terrible happened to each other. Thankfully, Rachel spotted us driving in and turned around. By the time I got out of the car, the sun had already set. But I grabbed my camera and we made magic! I didn’t even take the time to grab my coat, LOL! We got some amazing images, and shot until it was too dark to shoot anymore. With no time for them to change in to another outfit, I promised them we would take some more back home in Cleveland.

Flash forward to December, when we scheduled part two of their engagement session! We met down in the Cleveland Flats, and started outside of Shooter on the Water. They have the coolest bridge, and such great views along the boardwalk. I love the Flats. There are so many cool bridges, and the skyline, and industrial touches. It was an awesome part two for these two, to have such awesome nature photos AND urban!! Check them out!!

xoxo
