Sara + Daniel | A Downtown Cleveland Wedding at Playhouse Square
Cleveland Wedding Photographers at Playhouse Square and Crowne Plaza Hotel
Saturday’s wedding brought us downtown Cleveland to the Crowne Plaza at Playhouse Square. While the rain may have dampened some couples’ moods, Sara and Daniel were happy to be getting married and in great spirits! It was a fantastic wedding with lots of celebration and cheer.
Sara and Daniel met at Daniel’s place of work when Sara was a volunteer for a special needs basketball camp. Sara’s friend recommended to Daniel’s co-worker that he should call Sara and ask her out on a date. Daniel followed these instructions with great success! Their first date was a beer and a movie (the Conjuring) followed by a second date a Lure Bistro. Their third date made the relationship official: Thirsty Parrot and an Indians game. Some time down the road, Daniel proposed to Sara in a parking lot, which was part of a failed plan to propose by the falls in Chagrin. Daniel planned a surprise engagement party immediately after at Bar Louie, the location of their first date, where all of their close friends and family gathered.
For the wedding, both the girls and the guys were having a blast getting ready for the big celebration. The suite where the girls were getting hair and make-up done had a tremendous view of the city, which enlivened the party mood. After getting ready, the couple had a first look down near Playhouse Square, enjoying seeing each other for the first time that day.
Sara and Daniel rocked out their formal portraits, braving the weather for some stellar urban images.
The ceremony for the wedding was performed by Sara’s brother-in-law with heartfelt readings from the parents of the couple. After the ceremony, Sara and Daniel, their family, and their guests transitioned to a high-energy party full of dancing, and laughter. It was a great evening, and it was abundantly clear that Sara and Daniel are well loved and supported by their friends and family.
Sara and Daniel - we wish you the very best in your marriage together!
