Lauren & Bryan's Tudor Arms Hotel Wedding

It has been one heck of a year, we may decide to share a blog post about it as a whole but not sure we'll have the time honestly!

To be brief - Nina and I were expecting our third son in late October but unfortunately learned in June that he had a severe defect. So much was unknown at that point, and there was many possible outcomes. He ended up arriving the Tuesday before Lauren's wedding, and had major surgery just one day beforehand. Needless to say, this was going to be a difficult wedding to photograph, as Nina was still in the hospital and our baby was quite literally fighting for his life. With the short notice of his early arrival, I couldn't find any replacement photographer and obviously couldn't back out at the last minute. 

Luckily Lauren and Bryan's wedding was at the Tudor Arms Hotel which is basically walking distance from the hospital, so I could at least feel like I was close to them throughout the day! 

After an emotional ceremony we headed to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens for portraits. I would love to just take the boys and explore that park, there are SO many amazing gardens there. We then headed back to the Tudor Arms Hotel for the reception for an incredible night of celebration. 

Being a wedding photographer has some amazing benefits, but honestly if it wasn't for our wonderful couples like Lauren & Bryan, we wouldn't be able to do it at all.
