Allison and Jonathan who met through a mutual friend, were married on a lovely spring day. Allison and her bridesmaids spent a relaxing morning on our deck drinking mimosas and eating a light breakfast before it was time for hair, makeup and pre-bridal portraits. A1 Limousine provided the transportation for the big day and ushered the ladies off to the Old Oak Bible Church for a late afternoon candlelit ceremony. The happy couple chose to do a "Sand Ceremony" to signify their unity. Once the "I Do's" were said, the bridal party and family members returned to our studio for some formal wedding day portraits. The Aspen Room at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville was aglow with a bright blue uplighting to coordinate with the bride and grooms wedding day colors. Everyone partied and danced the night away. Congratulations Allison & Jonathan!
