This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot the wedding of Andrea & Keith – you may remember their engagement shoot? The whole weekend was fun, fun, fun and as such, I am breaking the posting of this event into two posts, the rehearsal in Part I and the wedding in Part II – out Friday!

Whenever I book a wedding I always let the bride and groom know that I will be attending the rehearsal too. This gives me the chance to figure out the time-line of the ceremony, check the lighting situation, where the advantageous spots are for shooting, and also to meet people the wedding party and their families in a more comfortable relaxed setting.

The wedding and reception were being held at Windows on the River, Cleveland OH which is a gorgeous place for both should you ever be looking for such an event location! I can’t say enough about the staff at Windows, they were total professionals and they ran everything without a glitch! Excellent excellent venue! My second shooter for this wedding was Paul Lender, Left of Center Photography.

From the start of this rehearsal until the end, we saw not only how this couple are so very much in love but also how much their family and friends mean to them. They are fun, happy and just enjoying life – as evidenced in the photographs we took!

When I booked with Andrea & Keith they also invited Paul and I to the rehearsal dinner that was taking place afterward which was being held at The Corner Alley in downtown Cleveland. There they had the VIP room which held a bar, 4 private lanes for bowling and seating areas for the buffet that was served.

Both Paul and I had fun here and we knew without a doubt that the wedding the next day was going to be just as much fun……..

Stay tuned for part II ~ the Wedding Day posting Friday!
