Lauren + Daniel's Beautiful Wedding at the Cleveland Westin and Cleveland Botanical Garden in Cleveland, Ohio | Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographers
Northeast Ohio Wedding Photographers in Downtown at the Downtown Cleveland Westin and Cleveland Botanical Gardens
Lauren and Daniel had a spectacular downtown Cleveland wedding at the Botanical Garden. It was such a pleasure to be the photographers for this dynamic duo!
Lauren & Daniel met during their first week at the Kellogg School of Management in Chicago, IL, both assigned to Section 68, nicknamed the “Highlanders”. They struck up their first conversation on a yellow school bus, coming back from a volunteering event where they built raised garden beds for a local nonprofit. Later that semester, they went on their first date to UNION, where they shared pizza and a salad, and enjoyed the “Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds" jazz show.
Since graduating Kellogg in 2014, Daniel and Lauren dated over distance for two years, visiting one another in Cleveland, New York and Houston. They now live in San Francisco.
Both Lauren and Daniel got ready at the Westin in downtown Cleveland. They had a great time sharing laughs with their friends and family. Lauren’s flower girls had an especially exciting time hanging out with the bridesmaids and getting their hair and make-up done. It was a blast to see so much joy and excitement among everyone present.
After getting ready, the couple shared an intimate first look. Lauren teared up seeing her soon-to-be husband for the first time that day, and Daniel just took in his beautiful bride. They had a moment to themselves before all of the other parts of the wedding day started rolling. It is always an honor to be able to photograph this precious wedding moment. Following their first look, Daniel and Lauren were able to take photographs throughout downtown Cleveland, at the Cleveland Public Library, East 9th Pier, and, of course, the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Everyone was relaxed, but super excited.
The wedding ceremony was preceded by Lauren and Daniel signing their Ketubah. The ceremony was held in the Japanese garden of the Cleveland Botanical Garden. This couple rolled with the weather when everything was moved indoors for the second half of the ceremony. The happily declared their love for each other and committed their lives to each other.
Daniel and Lauren’s reception clearly showed how much esteem friends and family place in this couple! Heartfelt speeches showered compliments and love on Lauren and Daniel. After wonderful speeches and a lovely dinner, Lauren and Daniel had a kicking party on the dance floor. This couple, as well as all their guests, rocked it out all night long!
Here’s to the new couple! Lauren and Daniel, we wish you the very best in your lives together!
