Faysal & Talla’s wedding was an extravaganza that resulted in award-winning wedding photography! They were supermodels in front of the camera, perfect for elegant modern wedding photography, so it’s no surprise this couple’s album was a first place winner at the fall 2012 Professional Photographers of Ohio (PPO) competition. Those of you who are regulars here at our blog know that we highly encourage all our couples to go with a First Glance – a time before the ceremony when they see each other for the first time on their wedding day. We wish we had an award for Faysal for the best first glance expression ever! And rightly so – Talla was an amazing bride, her hair and makeup done by Rania Hair Salon. Though the day was incredibly windy, we were able to get some romantic wedding images around University Circle before heading to the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel for the ceremony and reception. The ballroom was a visual masterpiece thanks to some dramatic uplighting. When planning your reception décor, do consider uplighting as it can transform even the most ho-hum space. Flowers from Creations by Lynn, cake by Michaeal Angelo’s Bakery and linens from Party Décor complete the look. Heading up yet another amazing event with their planning expertise was none other than then fabulous ladies at Kirkbrides Wedding Planning and Design! We love you guys!
