Dustin and Rachel's wedding was the best way to start off my 2017 busy season! Darren and I met this sweet couple last May and traveled to Cleveland for their engagement session. We immediately clicked and I knew that their wedding would be so much fun. These two tied the knot in their Catholic church in Brecksville surrounded by close family and friends. The entire day was emotional, intimate and full of love!
Rachel had contacted me days prior to her wedding worried about rain and I assured her that rain or shine, I would get those gorgeous natural light photos she always dreamed about! It rained ALL day but that did not stop us or the entire wedding party from having fun and embracing the weather! We grabbed the white umbrellas from my trunk (that I always take to weddings, just in case!) and had a blast in the rain outside of the Cleveland Art Museum. We also went inside to the atrium of the museum, which could not have been a more perfect indoor spot for photos! You would have never known that this spot was inside because the entire ceiling was made of glass! These are some of my favorite wedding party photos!
Dustin + Rachel's reception took place in downtown Cleveland at the cutest Italian restaurant, called Cibréo Privato. I am not even kidding, this was the best wedding food I have ever had! (And I have had a lot of amazing wedding food!) If you are in Cleveland, you need to try this place- yum! The toasts were all heartfelt and emotional, which is one of my favorite parts of a reception. This entire day was so fun and I absolutely love this #susiemariecouple! Congrats Mr. + Mrs. Freshwater!
