Marissa and Mike’s intimate Sapphire Creek Winery Wedding spoke directly to my summer heart! This winery holds one of the classiest, and hands down coolest, atmospheres for wedding venues in Chagrin. First, if you just look at the building structure, with its large, open windows and high ceilings. Then follow the grounds and see a […]

This extra special Cleveland wedding was the epitome of elegance and extravagance. Michelle and Tony had everything from a beautiful Church ceremony to a live musician during cocktail hour. They popped champagne overlooking the browns stadium, and enjoyed more of that Lake Erie view on the solstice steps in Lakewood. Their wedding had it all! […]

When I first met them in Seattle, […]

Infatuation. Remember when you first learned that word? It was probably in some British or English Lit class in 8th grade or even high school. If not, then let me refresh your memory: Infatuation: an intense passion or admiration for someone or something. Welllp, this word continuously popped into my head while capturing this wedding. […]
