Kait+Pat’s mid century modern wedding at Toledo Country Club had me so very humbled to have made the cut! Bee for the Day made everything run smooth. Bartz Viviano outdid themselves with beautiful succulent planters with bright tropical flowers that made me wish I knew how to keep such lovely things alive in my own home. AND my girl Aimee at Modernly Events brought in pops of vintage decor, aqua + teak & all sorts of mid century modern goodness! Oh my EAMES ;)
Shawn and Phil are one of those couples that are a dream to get to know. When I met with them, heard about Phil’s thoughtful wedding proposal (and then saw the video he has secretly produced documenting it) I was honored tat they were entrusting me to photograph their Cleveland wedding.
They had a Kate Spade inspired event, reception at Cleveland gem MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art)… a building I saw phases of construction and sooo hoped I would get the chance to photograph a wedding at!
Phil and Shawn are adorably in love AND have great style with attention to detail. I have been looking forward to their wedding since they officially were marked on my calendar. It was an honor to document their wedding day! Biggest congrats to them!!!

It was a labor of love for a few months, collaborating on this shoot with Aimee of Modernly Events. I photographed Aimee & Matthew’s wedding in September of 2012 & we shared a common love of mid century modern design, architecture & furnishings. I recall leaving their wedding & saying to them: ‘It’s totally normal to want to start doing weddings’ (or something to that affect). I think in the back of my head, I saw that she excelled at completing a cohesive vision for a large event. If you peek through their wedding, you’ll see just how true this is. I was thrilled when I heard of her new venture into event design & furniture rental! She came up with the initial concept based on artist Alexander Girard’s sun imagery & we went bananas from there bringing that vision to life. It was a total blast, stressful, but I am so so happy with how everything came together!
Big thanks to all the professionals involved…
