Scott & Chelsea | Wedding | Cleveland, OH

I had the pleasure and honor to second shoot Scott and Chelsea’s wedding in Cleveland recently with Susan. It was a small and very intimate wedding, witnessed by close family members, relatives and kindred friends. They came to celebrate the union of two best friends who’ve been through thick and thin, sweat, tears and have the utmost love for each other. It was a fun and emotion-filled day and very, very unique in oh so many ways and then some. And oh, I finally get to shoot a tattooed bride!

The day started with hair and make-up at Ladies & Gentlemen Salon & Spa in Mentor, OH. It took a bit of coaxing before fuss-free Chelsea agreed to get a bit of make-up done…

Isn’t she pretty?

Thereafter, we headed to Scott’s house where the bride & groom, as well as the Best Lady, Laura, got ready. Below is Scott’s father’s beautiful collection of bottles and containers bearing the family name – Jewell.

The ceremony was held at Squire’s Castle in Willoughby Hills, OH. We couldn’t pray the rain away, so the chairs had to be moved inside the castle. As it a shell castle, the light was still beautiful and everyone was kept somewhat dry.

Grandma arrived just in the nick of time.

The couple shared their heartfelt stories about how far they’ve grown stronger in their friendship and love for each other, amidst lots of hardships and unexpected life events.

And it’s finally official!

Their “getaway” car – a colorful and fun VW! How cool is that?!?

This circus tent cake was baked and decorated by Scott’s sister, Jessica.

Best Lady, Laura’s message to the B&G.

It continued to pour throughout the night, but the party is still ON!

I have a sweet spot for loving couples whose love has stood the test of time. If you have just got engaged, I’d love to capture your love story. Or maybe you’d like to gift a session to someone celebrating an upcoming anniversary, feel free to contact me for anniversary specials!

    Andrea LaGrow - These are absolutely gorgeous! They look like a very unique couple, and they chose to show that on their day. You were able to capture the magic of their day perfectly and I’m sure they will treasure these images forever. I don’t know who that man is that you captured by himself that you placed above the words “and it’s official”, but the emotion on his face is clear – and it’s one of my favorites from the whole lot. Love it!

    Fong - They are a very “comfortable-in-their-own-skin” couple I’ve met and that awesome for their young age. The man you were referring to is the groom’s father. And the words, “It’s finally official” was meant for the kissing scene below it. 🙂
