Ellen + Kyle embody the sort of kindness that immediately brings a smile to your face. They are warm, genuine, smart, and - as is obvious - good looking. Theirs was a celebration punctuated by a crisp elegance, and we loved every minute.

Jessica + Ryan | A Cuyahoga Valley National Park Elopement by Suzanne Price

It's not every day that we get to hike out over ice covered rocks for a beautifully natural, serenely quiet, supremely joyous elopement. Fresh flowers, fresh denim, and fresh coffee punctuated this celebration. We loved Jessica's Pendleton blanket inspired coat and the thoughtful tarot coffee mugs provided by a dear friend for a little winter wonderland toast. 

 

Lyndsey + Jamie | A gorgeous Cleveland engagement session by Suzanne Price

This summer has been exceptionally beautiful and Lyndsey and Jamie only enhanced the gloriousness of this particular day. Betsey and Stella, their two fur kids, made a sweet showing at the beach - don't you just want to pet those little cheeks?

We can't wait for your wedding day, Lyndsey and Jamie!

Evan + Alexa | An elegant Ohio wedding by Suzanne Price

We had been looking forward to this wedding for SO long. After a fun jaunt to Brooklyn to meet in person for the first time and make some engagement photos, we knew we were in for a day filled with fashion, aesthetic wonder, kindness, and elegance.

What truly made the day were the INCREDIBLE friends and family this couple has. The wedding was in Ohio primarily because Alexa's grandmother resides here. She couldn't travel for the big day, so they came to her. I think we were all shedding more than a few tears as they shared many an embrace. 

So great, you two. Bravo!

Lizzie + Ryan | A Beautiful Cleveland Elopement by Suzanne Price

We were so thrilled to be a part of Lizzie and Ryan's elopement at Cleveland's stunning restaurant The Plum. Lizzie's brother is a chef and prepared a beautiful meal for the couple and their guests which made it even more special! High ceilings, tons of natural light, and the most beautiful color palette - Lizzie's design made the space sing even more! Of course Lizzie's beautiful blue gown from Miranda's Vintage Bridal is a total show stopper. Take a look for yourselves!

 

Leah + Pat by Suzanne Price

Leah is bright and funny, formidable in her tiny frame. Pat is quiet and quick witted, a wily smile never far away. Observe the way they look at one another. Lives well lived, together. We adore you Leah and Pat!

Jenny + Mike by Suzanne Price

I feel that if I say too much I will detract from the magic incarnate that is Jenny and Mike. When you come face to face with either of them you feel SEEN, HEARD, LOVED. Their dear friend Amanda read the following words during their vows. Not a single dry eye. 

"Why have a wedding? Well, why send astronauts into outer space?

Sure, there are uncertainties. You can’t predict what might happen on
the big day. There are asteroids to think about. It could be very
stressful. All those buttons. And all those people in a small area.
Will there be enough food? Enough bathrooms? It’s enough to make a
person question the endeavor.

And yet here you are. You put on the special clothes, the finest
you’ve ever worn. You’ve gotten this far, and now your whole world is
watching, as you knew they would be. But something else is happening.
And this is the part you couldn’t have predicted—you are watching your
whole world: your new marriage, and all the people you love who are
here to witness it. You’re orbiting in a capsule just above, and so
for the first time you see it all at once. Your life, your love. See
how lush it is? How exquisite and unlikely, a gorgeous blue-green
sphere rotating peacefully in the void? How clouds cluster over whole
continents and then just blow away? You didn’t come up here just for
the vantage point—there were other reasons—but now that you’re here,
press your nose to the window. Savor the view. This is your life, with
one another, supported by all of us. Now that you see how precious it
is you know with certainty that even as it spins quietly on an axis
you can’t control, you will preserve it. What is the thing I want to
say that I have to reach all the way out into outer space to
articulate? Cherish, love, treasure, appreciate, cleave and hold dear,
remember, remember, remember. When you’re back on the ground, remember
this view."
