Greek Wedding in Youngstown // Wedding Photographers Cleveland

After they were ready, it was time for their first look at the Avalon Suites and Spa. We then stopped at Butler Museum of Art before heading to their Greek wedding ceremony at St. Demetrios.

Having a first look is, really, a combination of a set up moment and authentic reactions. The way that it’s done most of the time,  the groom doesn’t see the bride until she taps him on the shoulder. This puts the bride right in his space before he sees her and increases the emotion and excitement. We decided to keep it indoors because or the hot weather. Katherine wanted to walk right thru friends and family at the Avalon to get to Michael. I liked this idea because it incorporated the friends and family in the first look documentation. It also kept her for the heat outside. So, even though it was set up, we could get authentic reactions within the pictures.

 

Wedding Pictures at Butler Art Museum

When Katherine and Michael suggested doing creative wedding pictures at Butler Art Museum, I was  little excited (ok, I was A LOT excited). First, it’s an art museum (!!). Secondly, it would be a good location in case of inclement weather. And, since it was stifling hot on this day, it was perfect. We tried to incorporate interesting pieces on display, most of which were created by Kim Novak (yes, THAT Kim Novak).

I was happy with what we created inside the Butler. After which, it was time to move on to the wedding ceremony at ST. Demetrios in Warren. SUCH a beautiful church. A lot of activity prior to the wedding, which was good for candids :).

Here are just a few favorites from their first look and their wedding in Youngstown.
