Rob and Lisa were having their wedding in Strongsville and their wedding reception at Club at Key Center ( St. Clair Ballroom )
Early Start to the Wedding Day in Strongsville
The day started bright at early at Rob and Lisa’s house in Strongsville with Lisa and her bridesmaid getting hair and make-up done there. This made for a convenient start to her wedding day. Her bridesmaids stayed with her that night so this was the perfect set up for them. It was great for me as their wedding photographer to have most of the bridesmaids there to interact with the bride. These tend to be favorite wedding photos for a lot of brides.
Rob and his best man got ready his parents house. This has the same effect as Lisa getting ready at their house in terms of convenience. But it also adds some intimacy to the grooms coverage since it was in his parents house.
After the wedding ceremony at St. Joesph and John Catholic Church, they wanted creative wedding pictures in downtown Cleveland. They also wanted to hit up a couple bars and this was fantastic for wedding photos. Getting the bride and groom interacting naturally in a cool environment. I love these type of pictures.
Wedding Reception at Club at Key Center ( St. Clair Ballroom )
Their reception was a really fun time. Beautiful flowers adorned the chairs of the head tables. Great centerpieces. A classic wedding cake. All great wedding details.
Near the end of the night, we went outside for some creative wedding photos. We had intended to have Cleveland as our backdrop but we ended up do some fun pictures with sparklers. We were lucky for this. Right when I grabbed the shot, a gust of wind blew and caused the sparklers to blow created a great effect, as you will see below.
I want to thank Rob and Lisa for being some great to work with. They made everything so much fun. Their families were wonderful and the staff at the St. Clair Ballroom were terrific. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.
**Update: in 2016 The Key Center building was sold. The Club at Key Center was closed down. It has since become the St. Clair Ballroom. To eliminate confusion, I am addressing the Club at Key Center as the St. Clair Ballroom which have no affiliation to each other, other than the space that was and is used by each.
