It was a beautiful day on December 31, 2010. Aloys and Curtis were married at St. John’s Nottingham Lutheran Church in Cleveland. We took photos before the ceremony, since it would be dark afterward. The temperature was in the 50s, so it was perfect for outdoor photos. Our creative session was in downtown Willoughby. The church was decorated beautifully. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen a church as full as St. John’s was. After the beautiful ceremony, we headed to Patrician Party Center in Eastlake. This was the first time I shot at Patrician. It’s a really nice banquet center with great food and a very hard-working staff.
Aloys and Curtis’ receptions was one of the most fun of the year. Everyone was excited about bringing in the New Year in addition to celebrating Aloys and Curtis’ wedding. There were tons of New Years hats, tiaras, noisemakers and beads. It was such a festive atmosphere that hardly anyone left before midnight. Lance and I had a great time with Aloys and Curtis. It was a great way to spend our New Year’s Eve.
Here’s a few of my favorite shots.
