Where to begin? Paige and Justin’s gorgeous August celebration at the Lakewood Country Club was a picture of romantic elegance and sophistication. So much of the beauty in these images is because of this couple’s excellent taste, attention to detail, and truly loving interactions. They wanted a wedding that was gorgeous and laid back. This celebration was the perfect balance.
I can’t write this blog without spending a little time on the beauty of the bridemaids’ style. Their dresses in different shades of blue is my new favorite look. The mix and match trend creates so much depth in the images of them together. It really stands out in the photos on the cute stone patio at the country club. They also had stunning bouquets created by Blooms for Brides. *Style tip: adding long flowy silk ribbon to your bouquets like they did in an easy, romantic way to elevate your florals.
Paige and Justin were married at St. Adalbert Church in Berea, not far from where they met as accounting students at Baldwin Wallace. After the sweet ceremony, they headed to a park in Berea. There’s a bridge in that park where Justin’s parents took photos on their own wedding day. As a personal touch, we recreated those portraits with the wedding party. After that quick stop, we headed to the Cleveland Museum of Art for a few more portraits.
Then we headed back to Lakewood Country Club for more shots of the couple and one amazing celebration! Paige and Justin’s friends and family really know how to have fun! The atmosphere was electric. Hilarious toasts by the maid of honor and best man flooded the room with laughter, and set the tone for celebration. The dinner was amazing, thanks to the catering at the country club. Then the dancing began, and the dance floor was filled until we left. It was such a fun and meaningful day from start to finish.
Paige and Justin – I adore you! Niko and I are thrilled you trusted us to capture all the special moments of your wedding. Full of emotion and elegance, your celebration is one I won’t easily forget. I’ve loved all our time spent with you, and I can’t wait to see where life leads you on your journey together! – Kate
