I have been looking forward to Kate and Pete’s wedding at Metropolitan at the 9 since I met them at my studio in Tremont. The way they bounced off of each other–Pete deferring to Kate, Kate glancing quickly at him to make sure they were on the same page as they told me about the fantastic new hotel they’d found for their wedding–was endearing. At the time, the 9 was still under construction, so we really had no idea just how beautiful it would be once it was finished.
They married each other in a beautiful ceremony at St. Rocco’s, then we headed over to the 9 for their classic black and white themed reception. And even though it was Cleveland cold outside, and I know they were dying to see the reception room and their guests, we dashed out for a few photos in the fading sunset light among the buildings. Then we slipped back into the warmth of the hotel for a few more photos down by the vault. Then it was on to greet their guests and enjoy cocktail hour. All in all, it was a beautiful day. Here are some of my favorite images from Kate and Pete’s wedding at St. Rocco and Metropolitan at the 9….
