Traditional Latin Mass Wedding at Immaculate Conception in Cleveland | Sela + James

Their wedding day had finally arrived.  After years of dating and months of preparation, these high school sweethearts were about to become husband and wife.  Sela and Jim’s wedding was filled with class and elegance.  The color palette of greens, creams, and golds was stunning and perfectly complimented this gorgeous couple. Every detail was planned perfectly down to the beautiful wedding rings. Jim carved the design of their Claddagh rings and gave that design to a jeweler to make their unique and stunning gold wedding bands.

Their wedding nuptial Mass was a solemn high traditional Latin Mass at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The talented choir sang beautiful sacred polyphony as Sela walked down the aisle.  Jim’s reaction was priceless. (You’ll have to scroll down to see it!)  These two have such a profound love for each other that this love flowed over into happy tears!

After the beautiful Mass we headed to the Cleveland Public Library for a few shots and then continued on to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens! We stopped at the Irish and Italian gardens which was fitting for an Irish groom and his Italian bride. You’d never know from the images but these gardens were filled with other bridal parties everywhere! It was a very popular day to get married!

We ended the day at St Joseph Byzantine Catholic Church for their beautiful outdoor reception! You could have not picked more perfect weather for an outdoor reception. God truly blessed this couple with the most perfect sunny day, not too hot and not too windy! After heartfelt (and hilarious) speeches, a delicious dinner, and dancing, Sela and Jim’s wedding day came to a close.  Their wedding day was over but the adventure of marriage had just begun!

Sela and Jim, we had the most amazing time celebrating with you two! We pray that God continues to bless you both! It was so hard to choose favorites for this blog post so it’s a tad long but we hope you enjoy reliving your day!
