Congrats Jessica & Chris!

Jessica & Chris had a stunning evening wedding at Severance Hall yesterday! Guests were seated in gold Chiavari chairs for the ceremony, and the wedding party lined the staircase where the ceremony took place in the Grand Foyer. The bride was nothing less than stunning in one of my favorite dresses of the year, flawless makeup, and a side swept long curly hair style. Absolutely gorgeous! Their youngest son, Shane, stole the show as the ring bearer. He made it all the way down the aisle perfectly!

After the ceremony, guests were ushered to cocktail hour, where a guitar duo played inside and there was a patio available outside to enjoy the nice evening weather. After the ceremony seating was cleared and the band set up, the guests were brought back in for dinner and the reception.

It was a gorgeous wedding for an amazing couple. Jessica was such a sweetheart to work with, and Chris kept us laughing the whole time! They are a truly genuine and gracious couple. I'm sad my planning time with them has come to an end! We wish Jessica, Chris, Mason, Caleb & Shane all the best in the future, and many years of happiness to come!

Congrats Stacey & Ben!

Yesterday we worked with Stacey & Ben, a bubbly couple from San Francisco who just warmed my heart! They are so sweet, and so in love! I feel extremely fortunate to have worked with them on their wedding day!

The traditional Jewish ceremony was held outdoor at the Happy Days Lodge at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The weather for the ceremony was absolutely perfect! Stacey actually hand made the fabric for the Chuppah, and she walked down the aisle to Something by The Beatles.

Cocktail hour brought guests into the screened porch for Arnold Palmers in mason jars while Moss Stanley played tunes on his keyboard. The escort card table was filled with photos of their parents and grandparents.

After cocktail hour, the doors were opened for the dining hall and guests were ushered inside. The ceiling throughout the whole room was filled with white lanterns in varying sizes. The dining tables had ivory linens, beige napkins, candles and mason jars filled with multi-colored wildflowers. After introductions, cutting the Challa and dancing the Hora, a delicious menu was served by the fabulous caterers, and then everyone packed the dance floor for Nitebridge!

Mazel tov to the happy couple!

Fall is in the air!

Today I'm working on a sample centerpiece for October clients Alexis & John, and it's getting me into a fall kind of mood! Fall is my favorite time of year! I've got my Falling Leaves & Spice candles burning, and I'm thinking about making some pumpkin bars today. What's your favorite thing about fall?

Congrats Emily & Bryan!

Yesterday we did flowers and coordination for a super sweet couple, Emily & Bryan. I guess all my anti-rain thoughts worked, because I didn't see a drop! The air was a little crisp, but it really turned out to be a beautiful day!

Emily looked so glamorous! She wore a form fitting satin ivory gown and ivory lace shoes (I loved them!!) with a bird cage veil,, and her makeup was flawless! The bridesmaids wore goddess-like one-shouldered green gowns with floral embellishments. The reception has a slight beach theme, incorporating silver trays of sand for the escort cards and flip flops for the ladies tired dancing feet.

We had three types of centerpieces throughout the tent at CIC. Two varieties of tall centerpieces (one with all flowers and one with white branches and green orchids) and a smaller centerpiece with hydrangeas, roses and berries. The groom's mother provided some green shimmery fabric, which we wrapped around the base of each centerpiece for a splash of color.

It was a really beautiful day with a beautiful couple. Best wishes and many blessings to the new Mr. & Mrs.!
