Ever wanted to attend a Stan Hywet Wedding ceremony? Envision this: you are surrounded by the most serene Fall foliage, stone backdrops, calming water ponds, and the mansion itself. You walk in, find your seat and a string quartet plays the most delightful, peaceful music. As the couple walks down the aisle, around a pond, […]

If you ever wanted to have a wedding in Downtown Cleveland look no further than the Westin. Just to name a few reasons: there are the gorgeous ballrooms (that need little to no decor), the beautiful two story suites to get ready, plus the proximity to downtown Cleveland. You can’t beat it! Over my years […]

To me, hotel weddings are the equivalent to a blank canvas. You can take any ballroom and splash all the fun to make it your own. Lexi and Nick’s Hilton Fairlawn Wedding did just that. They took this big empty space and filled it full of gold, white and purple accents. Their florals had hints […]

Idyllic defines Toni and Creighton’s Lake Club Wedding to a tee. September weddings bring in a fall breeze which cannot be replicated any other time of year. The magical summer sun still hangs around. And by evening you feel the winds changing to crisp and cool. It reminds me of a Mary Poppins wind, as […]

First and foremost, Nikki and Kevin’s Lakewood Country Club wedding transported everyone to the beautiful Italian coast. Italy is one of my favorite countries to visit! My family is from a small town by the heel of the boot, and I studied abroad there during college, taking multiple Italian courses. I still dream about the […]

Summer celebrations, mid-July, are the epitome of wedding season. There is something about the sunshine and the excitement that just hits a tad differently than a cozy winter wedding or a brisk fall soiree. Tie in a root beer stand, farm animals, and the most beautiful purple sunset Ohio has ever seen, and you have […]

This Birds Eye Barn Wedding took place in the middle of July and held so much summer magic. Imagine that teenage feeling. School is over, and you are hanging around a fire pit with your best friends, breathing in warm summer air, knowing this is a core memory in your life. That is how this […]

Even though this post is titled a Country Club Wedding in Fairlawn, so much happened before we even made it to the reception. Firstly, Katie and Ryan tied the knot in the middle of July. Their traditional wedding day didn’t stop them from scheduling a first look! And yes, it took place where Katie played […]

Friday weddings should receive a bit more of the spotlight in the wedding circuit. Just because it happens on a day of the week doesn’t mean it’s any less full of energy and love. Take this Portage Country Club Wedding for example. It took place on a Friday afternoon. Erin and Elliot had a Ceremony, […]

Ever witnessed an Arcade Wedding in Cleveland, Ohio? I don’t mean a place with video games and tokens (although adding that to my idea list if Woody and I ever renew our vows). It’s more the historic center of this Hyatt hotel in the heart of downtown. From getting ready to reception dancing, Annie and […]
