Progressive Field

Believe it or not, Progressive Field has some amazing spaces for weddings, both ceremony AND reception, not to mention other events! Carly Horvat invited me for lunch and a tour of the ballpark, and I was completely impressed with the space and level of service they offer! They offer many unique ideas for couples who want something other than the traditional style wedding! Thanks again to Carly for a wonderful afternoon!


This week I had the opportunity to tour several of the Sammy's locations all over the Cleveland area. They have a location style to fit every personality - traditional to contemporary. Special thanks to Ashley for taking time out to give me a tour!

What a sweet couple! They met at Purdue where Heather played golf and Nick played baseball, and Nick now plays for the Erie SeaWolves. The whole wedding had a Purdue theme, from the colors to the table names, and there was even a Purdue memorabilia table from their college days at the entry way to the reception. The venue was gorgeous and matched perfectly with their color choices! There was a garden area outside with a huge fire pit and color changing lights along the walkways - absolutely stunning! The desserts were amazing, and there wereplenty of sweets to accommodate all 330 guests....traditional wedding cake in 3 flavors, ice cream cake from Cold Stone in 5 flavors, and cookie cakes too! It was such a sweet night, in more ways than one! Thank you for allowing us to be involved in your special day. It was truly a unique experience!

I have to say, I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such a wonderful couple, family and bridal party! Everyone was so gracious and pleasant, it made the whole experience that much more enjoyable! The reception was amazing -- the tall golden trees dripping with crystals and light were unbelieveable! I especially loved the "extras" -- the cookie/candy station, the surprise wine favors that came out after dinner, the wine cork escrt cards...every last detail was well thought out and came out perfect! You had a truly beautiful day, and I wish you a truly beautiful life to follow! Have fun in Jamaica, and I'm sending wishes of good weather for you!

Congratulations Molly & Scott!

Congrats to the newlyweds!

Molly & Scott
August 23, 2008

Molly and Scott had an absolutely beautiful setting on Put In Bay for their wedding and reception. The church was small and beautiful, and they had a packed house for the ceremony! The reception was on the pavilion at the Crews Nest, and the chocolate/pink/ivory color combination was really gorgeous! The DJ kept the dance floor packed with everyone's favorite tunes, and I saw some crazy dances that I'd never seen before! A sentimental moment was when Molly's father made an announcement about a sailing flag they had made specially for the occasion. They had flown it on their sailboat for several days before the wedding, and then asked everyone in attendance to sign it. It said "Congratulations, Molly & Scott, Just Married". A truly beautiful evening!

Thank you Molly and Scott for allowing my staff and I to be a part of your wedding day! Your wedding party and family were all so gracious and friendly, and you two are the sweetest couple! I wish you many years of happiness, and have a wonderful honeymoon!

Congratulations Lori & Ryan!

Lori & Ryan had a small wedding in a hut at Kalahari in Sandusky. The Michigan couple came in for a vacation and decided to make things official! It was a sweet and tear filled ceremony that I was glad to attend (first time seeing a groom cry)! All the best to you both...

Congratulations Carey & Kevin

What a super adorable couple! Carey looked completely glamourous! It was standing room only for the outdoor ceremony! The DJ's played a great mix of music and the dance floor was packed all night. Banks Photography put on an incredible slideshow of their ceremony photos and wedding party photos that they had just taken a few hours before. Amazing work! This wedding actually made me tear up a few times (during the ceremony is when the waterworks started, then the Maid and Matron of Honor's toasts, and finally Carey dancing with her father). It was all so touching!

Carey and Kevin, it was a pleasure to be a part of your beautiful wedding. I hope you have a wonderful trip to the Bahamas, and may you be blessed with a life of happiness together!

The newly remodeled ballroom was set up with the newest and trendiest decor, the food samples were phenomenal, and I had the opportunity to meet some really great people in the event industry. Thanks to those of you whom I had the pleasure to meet, and especially to Shannon Harris for putting on the fabulous event. See some of the photos below!

This was an elegant and gorgeous beach-themed affair at the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinton. It was such a beautiful setting right on the lake, and such an adorable and perfect young couple! Every detail from the ceremony to the reception was perfectly planned out, and the end result was absolutely stunning! Congratulations Chanel & Mark, and have a wonderful honeymoon in Jamaica! Best wishes for your new life together!
