Cleveland Botanical Garden Wedding with Anna & Mike

I hit the jackpot with Anna & Mike. I’ve never met two people so warm, kind and funny. Starting the day with Anna was one hour of constant giggles. Anna and her friends are hilarious, which resulted in some of my favorite preparation photos ever. On top of these ladies being super funny, they were also so sweet. They care deeply for their girl, Anna and it really showed.

Mike & Anna started out as friends, who grew into best friends and then started dating. I’m really not surprised it started out this way. You can’t help but want to be friends with these two, their joy just rubs off on you.

The ceremony was held in the gorgeous Japanese Garden at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. After the ceremony we wandered around the gardens, just the three of us. Then we headed to the Cleveland Museum of Art with the Bridal Party. It was a perfect 75 degree day in July, I was definitely getting spoiled all around.

The most entertaining part of the day was the bouquet toss. It got caught in the draped fabric on the ceiling. I won’t spoil the rest, you’ll have to scroll down to see.

Anna & Mike, I’m so glad we became friends! Let’s get that ice cream soon! 🙂wedding-dress-wedding-shoesbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddingbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddingbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddingbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddingbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddingbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddingbridesmaids-getting-ready-weddinggroomsmen-getting-ready-weddinggroom-getting-ready-weddingwedding-ceremonywedding-ceremonywedding-ceremonygarden-wedding-ceremonywedding-ceremonywedding-ceremonywedding-ceremony-first-kisswedding-ceremonybride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbridal-party-photos-weddingbridesmaids-photos-weddingbridal-party-photos-weddinggroomsmen-photos-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingbride-groom-portraits-weddingwedding-cakewedding-receptioncake-cutting-weddingwedding-reception-toastswedding-reception-toastsfirst-dance-weddingfirst-dance-weddingfather-daughter-dance-weddingmother-son-dance-weddingwedding-reception-dancingwedding-reception-dancingwedding-reception-dancingwedding-reception-dancingbouquet-tossring-shot-wedding
