Ok, hold on. WTF.

Arcade Wedding. Check.

Beautiful day. Check.

She did whaaaaaat?  Read on.

*Wow, I should not write click-bait for a living.  Like, keep me away from that crap.  Seriously.  No, never again.  But seriously, you should read what I wrote and what she did for Jimmy, because it’s much cooler than this text that I’m trying right now*

Candid Wedding Photographers ClevelandHow effing cute is this?  Jimmy calls, she lights up like a Christmas tree.  Note the red wall-paper, synching and completing my tired analogy.  Fate.

Unique Wedding Photographer ClevelandOk, maybe this one.  This is one of my favorites.  Sister hugs.  Yes.  It kinda sounds like a spin off of a reality series, without the weirdness.

Best Wedding Photographers ClevelandWedding Photographers in Cleveland OhioThis is where Leigh lived when they started hanging out.  Right across the street from Hotz.  It’s like the Perkins corner.  You can trademark that, just give me some friggin’ credit and a beer.  Or just a beer.  A good beer.  That’s where I draw the line.

Photojournalistic Wedding Photographer ClevelandAdorable.  I didn’t tell them to do that.  They just did that.

Cleveland Ohio wedding reception venuesK so READ THIS:

Leigh made Jimmy a surprise.  She hand-crafted, slaved, and hand-hewn him a shuffleboard table. Right.  You read correctly.  She made this.  She made it.  With her bare hands.  For him.  Quite easily the coolest wedding gift I’ve ever seen.  Not even close.

Note: He lost the quick couple rounds they played.
