There is nothing like getting married in your hometown. Alison and Matt came home to Cleveland have their wedding ceremony and reception at the Ariel International Center. With panoramic views of the Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline, Ariel International was the perfect choice in venue.
Their wedding day began at Alison’s parent home where Alison and Matt decided to do a first look in the backyard. Even though it is less traditional, a first look is a great idea for couples who want to do portraits before the ceremony. And Matt was all smiles when seeing his bride for the first time.
Rain was in the forecast, but held off long enough for some outdoor photos. From Alison’s parents’ home, we headed to the Cleveland Museum of Art and Wade Oval. The museum with its wonderful architecture and landscaped grounds is a natural spot for great wedding portraits.
The ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. Beautiful white draped background was hung in the ceremony space. The reception room glittered with gold tablecloths with pink hydrangea and rose centerpieces. The Cleveland skies cleared in the evening so we went up to the roof deck to catch the those 360 degree views.
