Rob and Cathy were married at the beautiful Lantern Court of Holden Arboretum. Their wedding was a really special display of two people who found their perfect match. When I first met Rob and Cathy I knew this would be a great experience.
This is one of the few weddings I've got to shoot with Nelli this year. We both had different ideas for a nice ring shot. Can you guess who took the 1st shot and who took the second?
Rob and Cathy made the decision to see each other before the wedding. It was one of the best first sights I've witnessed. Nelli and I both had different angles, but the true quality of these pictures is seen in the joy of these two joining each other for this special day.
But Rob and Cathy weren't the only ones who celebrated this day. Sophie was a big part of the day.
These are a few of my favorites from a relaxing stroll through the grounds of Holden.
We couldn't forget some pictures on the goofy side. These kids sparked it.
I love these portraits from the Lantern Court library.
One important aspect of the day was the weather. Cathy really wanted an outdoor wedding, but it began raining about an hour before the ceremony, just after we finished most of the pictures. I was really hoping we could do it outside, because I knew it was important to Rob and Cathy. The best man went and check for us a few minutes before and it didn't look all that optimistic.
The rain stopped for just enough time to give us an outdoor ceremony at exactly the time the ceremony was to begin.
We couldn't start the reception without getting a few more pics of these cute kids.
So Nelli talked me into this one, and I was a bit hesitant, but I don't think Rob and Cathy minded getting away for a few minutes and venturing into the depths of the forest at night. I really think they never stopped smiling the whole day. It was a blessing to witness a couple so captivated by each other. I hope you like our experiment.
Rob and Cathy, thank you for having us be a part of this wonderful wedding. Your kindness was remarkable and we loved capturing these memories for you.
