David + Katie - 4.29.17

I've fallen a little behind on blogging lately, but got so excited when I realized this wedding was up next. David and Katie had a beautiful Cleveland wedding and I was honored to be a part of it. Mother nature tried to wish them luck, but I was glad she relented so we could get all these gorgeous shots in.

Photographing a wedding is intimate, I get to see behind the scenes and watch them love on one another. I have to say it's pretty cool. David and Katie, you have such a special , sweet, and light love. I had a wonderful time learning your inside jokes (Salutes), and capturing your loving glances. I'm so happy for you both and wish you the best now and always!

I also got to experience something new at their wedding and wonder if anyone else has seen or know about this? The brides mother hired a "live" artist to capture the reception as a surprise to her daughter and new son-in-law. How cool is that?!? Jacqueline DelBrocco, it was amazing to watch you work! We got to watch her painting come to life with the details of the ballroom and feel of the evening. I really wish this had been a thing back in 2011. You can see a few examples here, but you have to go check out her website, she is so talented and she travels. www.ClevelandEventPainter.com    /   Jacqueline DelBrocco Art & Live Event Painting
