We love a wedding in an unusual event space or one that takes place at two different places. It makes for a unique day! Gloria and William said “I do” in August 2017 in the Hanna Courtyard Garden at the Western Reserve Historical Society, followed by a reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art. They had many photographs in different locations throughout Cleveland which offers many beautiful backdrops.
From the photographer Robb McCormick Photography: “William and Gloria’s Cleveland wedding showcased some of the most beautiful venues and parts of Cleveland we had ever seen. The two got ready in the historic Glidden House, located on the campus of Case Western University. This quaint luxury hotel offered charming backdrops for these two as Gloria stepped into her Vera Wang gown and William suited up.
The ceremony was held in the Hanna Courtyard Garden at the Western Reserve Historical Society. The courtyard they were married in transported everyone to Europe. The rustic stone, wild flower landscape, and fountain and columns truly made one feel as if they had left the United States. It was the perfect backdrop for an intimate wedding ceremony.
After heading to the Cleveland Botanical Garden for photos, it was off to the Museum of Contemporary Art for the reception. Not only was the architecture of this building incredible, all guests had access to the galleries while they sipped on champagne and cocktails. It added a level of intrigue and excitement to the day as people got to visit the four-floor museum, viewing some of Cleveland’s finest modern art.
Once the guests were seated, Gloria and William made their entrance that wasn’t your typical walk in and sit down; the couple danced through the crowd and got everyone’s energy sky high. After speeches and dinner, the groom’s sister-in-law, who lives in Hawaii, danced a Hula dance blessing the couple and their marriage. This reception was one for the books!”
