Winter weddings in the midwest is a bad idea, right? This common misconception could not be more wrong as proved by Emily and Mckinley’s industrial chic wedding with understated touches of christmas decor. The morning started with the ladies and guys primping and prepping in separate locations. The bridesmaids’ hair and makeup was applied at a private residence in Strongsville Ohio, while the Groomsmen busted chops and bantered at the Aloft Hotel. Once everyone was suited and booted the girls jumped on a trolley to meet up with Emily’s dad for a father daughter first look. Let’s just say Emily stunned dad in her wedding dress. Finally, both parties arrived at St. John’s Church where Emily and Mac officially tied the knot in front of family and friends. After the formal ceremony the group bounced around the westbank of the flats taking photos at the Abbey Rd., Cleveland Sign, the iconic rust bridge, and other Cleveland landmarks near the Aloft Hotel.
It was finally time for the group to make their way to Tenk, one of Cleveland’s coolest locations, boasting vaulted ceilings, exposed brick and Marigold Catering. The Bride and Groom danced the night away beneath a ceiling full of gorgeous bistro lights. They even had both white and black custom led cowboy hats for guests to wear during the party. This honored Mac’s new love of all things Cowboy after moving to Texas. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to capture once in a lifetime moments on your special day.
