So, I used to do the 20 best of the year, but this year it was completely not possible, and I am so thankful for that! 2016 was full of love and growth. I was lucky to have some of the best clients ever, some of who I now call my friends! Without further ado… The Best of 2016!
Amy & Tom threw one heck of a party on New Year’s Eve, but before we could get to the party, we started with a first look and some portraits in Downtown Cleveland. We stopped at the Cleveland Public Library, and stepped out to Public Square when we could bear the cold. Once warmed up, we headed to Ahern’s Banquet Center in Avon Lake for the ceremony and reception. It was the perfect way to close out 2016 and welcome 2017.
My favorite part of the day was obviously at midnight. It was so fun to watch all of their family and friends party together. I even got my own special treat when the DJ started playing, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”, my absolute favorite wedding song, right after the countdown. 🙂

Christine & Tim had the perfect winter wedding. Brookside Farms was decorated for Christmas with just the lightest dusting of snow; it was adorable. The gold sequin dresses with touches of navy and hunter green fit in so well with the setting. I was in photographer heaven. 🙂
My favorite part of the day was the sweet ceremony. Christine started to tear up during the vows and it was so touching. It’s such an honor to be apart of these huge moments in my couples’ lives.
C&T- Thanks so much for being so wonderful. I’ve loved getting to know you two! Fun fact: Christine & Tim met while working at Home Depot. I loved that they added these details to the wedding! The apron was the guestbook, and the toolbox was the card box. 🙂
