Emily and Jeremy’s Downtown Cleveland Wedding at the House of Blues
Emily and Jeremy live in Boston and came in for the wedding day, where we met. Not a problem, as both were delightful and so friendly: we all settled in quickly.

Check back soon for Part Two – photos of the ceremony and reception at the House of Blues.
First off: we did photos of the couple getting ready at the Hyatt Regency at the beautiful Arcade, a Victorian-era structure modeled
after a building in Milan. It’s one of the few remaining arcades of its kind in the U.S. The construction, in 1890, was
financed by John D. Rockefeller, Marcus Hanna, Charles F. Brush and several other wealthy Clevelanders of the day.
This historic building dates back to 1890 and was turned into a hotel a few years back.
What a great place for photos!
Emily had plenty of help from her bridesmaids and mother, Diane.
You will see these in action during the reception. They were lots of fun!
Jeremy also had a great group of guys with him including his father, Jim.
They decided to do a First Look and it made for some dramatic photos.
On the way to the ceremony and reception we walked around a bit and grabbed a few more shots.
We did some photos at the Eastman Reading Garden at the Cleveland Public Library. The Reading Nest is an amazing backdrop.
It is built from 10,000 palette boards and two-by-fours collected from various Cleveland industrial and manufacturing sources.
The nest was designed by Mark Reigelman and is 10 feet tall and a whopping 36 feet across,
with the nest’s walls that slope gently upward like a mixing bowl.
Stay tuned! More portraits, the ceremony and reception will be in part two.
