Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Tower Wedding


bride and groom hold each other in a portrait

Sarah and Robert decided to keep all of their wedding day festivities at the same place. Marriott at Key Tower created a beautiful experience for the newlyweds with comfy rooms featuring plenty of interesting elements for photos. This is among the last weddings that was shot at their hall before the renovations entirely changed the place.

It's always touching to see the father give his daughter away.

I always wonder what it is that couples experience at this precise moment.

Rarely, I get emboldened to capture a shot like this. I have to walk into the spotlight for a brief moment to capture it.

Though not the first marriage, it's certainly the right one. Just look at that look.

All of the portraits were done right away not to keep guests waiting. Notice how amazing the location is overlooking CLE.

Just the way things should be, pointed toes, hands on each other, the whole family feels whole.

Closer look at that gorgeous cake. YUM.

Finally the walk-ins. If the bridal party consists of dear friends and family it's definitely worth having in the wedding album.

The roast, I mean the toast. Yes.

Bride and groom cut the cake and feed each other.
I think playing nice also has it's advantages.

I think this gives it away, they didn't play all too nice during the cake cutting.

Perhaps my favorite shots of the day.

Many shots of bride and groom with the guests on a complete two page album layout.
When we finalize a book a lot of your favorite shots are added, while the less important images are removed. This layout certainly shows who matters the most.
