Melanie & Aaron's Wedding At The Cleveland Botanical Gardens
Melanie & Aaron are probably the two most chill people we've met, and we instantly had good chemistry with them. This wedding was all about the details, which we love to document - sometimes it's the small things that tell the story!
After getting ready, they exchanged gifts and had their 1st look at the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art - which was an unexpected but amazing location for portraits. From the outside, the building looks like a modern spaceship with no windows, but inside there were interesting lines and pockets of light just about everywhere you look! Aaron loves wood details, so Melanie's gift to him couldn't have been more perfect - cuff links and a tie clip made from wood. These of course, went perfectly with his glasses and wedding band (made from different metals to look like wood grain!).
The ceremony and reception were at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, which were absolutely gorgeous in May. Planning an outdoor ceremony can be risky, but they totally lucked out with exquisite weather and light.
