Marc and Brent, On Top of World, Cleveland Terminal Tower Wedding

I'm so excited to share this wedding with you Friends! I have been looking forward to this wedding for over a year and half! When Marc and Brent first asked me photograph their wedding back in 2016, I jumped for joy and counted the days. These two grooms are the sweetest and nicest guys I have ever met. Of course, they come from the nicest and sweetest families around.

It was a joy to spend the day with Marc and Brent and their entourage, photographing our way across the CLE!. If you missed their engagement shoot, check it out here. Its one of my favorites.

Now on the Wedding! Im going to just go ahead and put out my favorite one first. This photos says it all....

Genevieve on the lookout for the groom's first look- no one's getting passed her! We made up a silly bird call to use when the coast was clear. This is her face when I suggested we use it
