Sunday Wedding in Cleveland // Cleveland Wedding Photographers

Having a Sunday wedding has many advantages. First, there is little or no competition for the popular locations for creative wedding pictures. For Alex and Melanie’s wedding day, we had scheduled to go to the Cleveland sign in Tremont, the Carnegie Bridge, Public Square. Quite the ambitious schedule. But having a Sunday wedding ensured that we were more likely to be able to do creative pictures without much interference. A much more intimate experience. 

The Start of the Wedding Day

The day started bright and early at Alex and Melanie’s house, where Melanie and her bridesmaids prepared for the day. This is always an obvious good choice because it makes the beginning of the wedding day extremely convenient for Melanie. She spends her wedding morning where she is most comfortable and can, literally, get up and get pampered. This is always a good opportunity to capture real moments in the day and do more documentary photography.

Alex prepped for his day at his soon to be brother-in-law’s house. This turned out to be a godsend for me as the wedding photographer. There were a lot of “guy” items the I could use in the wedding portraits of Alex.

Melanie opted to get into her dress at the church, Mary Queen of Peace Church in Cleveland. The room was very small but it worked out. She was able to keep her dress completely clean and we were able to use the church for the majority of her wedding portraits before the wedding ceremony.

One funny moment was when Melanie’s brother, Jimmy, donned a wedding dress. Alex thought that he was about to have a wedding day first look with Melanie. But when the moment arrived, he was surprised to see it was Jimmy. Very funny moment.

Here are a few of my favorites from Alex and Melanie’s Sunday wedding in Cleveland.

My next post will be their post ceremony including their wedding reception at Ariel Pearl.
