I knew as soon as I hung up the phone from my first call with Melissa that she and Waldo were going to be a fun, kind, down-to-earth couple and a true joy to photograph. They chose the Lake Erie building for their Cleveland wedding location and not only embraced the industrial feel of the space, but truly made it their own, down to every little detail.
The simple design elements were beautiful, and each item was handpicked with intention. Because Melissa is a talented graphic designer, her handiwork was seen throughout the day – from the place cards and pictures, to the invitations and other paper products. It was simply stunning!
Two of my favorite details from their wedding were the impressive floral arch statement piece that hung above them at the ceremony, and the floating paper cone backdrop behind their head table. It was obvious that a lot of time, love and effort went into each and every detail to make their day so special.
It’s true what they say – your vibe attracts your tribe. Everyone I met from Melissa and Waldo’s wedding day was full of joy, laughter and genuine kindness. The celebration began before the wedding clothes were on, continued through the ceremony and didn’t stop on the dance floor. Most importantly, their focus was on being flexible, making time for all of the important moments throughout the day and simply being together.
Cheers to you, Waldo and Melissa!
