Cleveland Zoo provides the perfect backdrop and setting for a wedding party even if we are in strange times. Honestly, we are just excited we are able to share some wedding photos with you. This has been a strange year for everyone and the wedding industry like many others has been hit hard with the COVID19 pandemic. We feel super humbled that we had the opportunity to document such a beautiful love story between Aubrey and Payton. The Zoo is one of the more iconic places to hold a special event such as a wedding in Cleveland; and when social distancing requirements demand space there is no place better than Stillwater at the Zoo with some of the best company anyone could ask for. Lions and Tigers and Bears!!! The Cleveland Photographic Team was humbled to still be able to document the wedding story of Aubrey and Payton on October 24th, 2020 at Stillwater within the Zoo of The Cleveland Metroparks.
Ever since we initially met with Aubrey & Payton, and even during their engagement session, we knew their wedding day was going to be magical. The day started off gloomy and rainy but it was nothing but smiles and excited with both Aubrey and Payton. The wedding ceremony was held at St. Claire Church in Lyndhurst, OH which is this beautiful, small and quiet church within a suburb on the city’s Eastside. From there we stopped over at the Iconic Mayfield Country Club for a brief shot at the 18th Hole and then it was off to the Cleveland Metropark Zoo for their reception. Stillwater Place at The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is an absolutely gorgeous venue and the team is excited to document another wedding story there in 2021.
Aubrey & Payton, it was such an honor for our team to be able to document your wedding day story.
Here are some of our favorite moments from your wedding day!! We cannot wait to share all of the images with you.
