Katy & Dan @ the Union Club

Words really can’t do Katy & Dan’s incredible wedding justice – they really can’t. Thankfully – I brought my camera :) and (for the most part at least) I plan on letting the pictures do the talking.

Cleveland Union Club WeddingI had the wondrous pleasure of serving their family this summer for Katy & Dan’s wedding – it was a sweetly sophisticated day, full of touching moments. I took such pleasure in being a storyteller, I loved every minute of silently snapping candids as the events of their day unfolded. Cleveland Union Club Wedding

So much fun – Katys Ladies (rhyming is fun) were a blast, and great to get to know throughout the day. Cleveland Union Club WeddingWith some careful pre-planning, we were able to organize the morning so I’d have time to pop in on the men a bit (dan’s manz?) for some candid photographs of their morning routine.

This image of Katy hugging her grandfather after the nuptials is one of my favorites – and I know they’ll value for a lifetime. It was a sweet & tender moment for sure, with a ton of backstory. This family exudes love and care – and moments like these are evidence of their great heart for each other.Cleveland Union Club WeddingCleveland Union Club Wedding

A sweet thing that Katy’s father chose to do during the wedding reception at the Union Club, was to have every guest scratch off a lottery ticket that was hidden in envelopes on their table. It was so fun to see the chaos and laughter that occurred as winners (and losers :) ) shouted from around the room in a frenzied craze of scratching.

It was a moment of sheer class and love, and something that moved half of the room to open tears. It was so sweet – and being the type of photographer that’s always ready for an unplanned moment to occure – I was quick to capture every facet of it. I’m so thrilled for these photographs – I know that these specific moments will be treasured for years by their family.

Much praise and many thanks to The Bottomline Band – they made for an awesome show, and kept the dance floor hoppin’ all throughout the night.

    Gorgeous! What great photos Brett. The one of Uncle Joe shaking his booty will be a family favorite for the family for sure! I have been in quite a few weddings and to be honest, I never enjoyed the picture process until this one. You made the day fun and really caught who Dan and Katy are. Thanks!
