Noel and Dana's Wedding at Cleveland Browns Stadium

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

I am very excited to post the wedding of Noel and Dana that took place on July 17, 2009. Noel and I clicked right away when we met and got to know each other pretty well during the planning process. We discovered we had mutual friends (Dana works with one of my best friends) and have kept in touch since the big day!

We ended up deciding on the unique location of the Browns Stadium as the site for the ceremony and reception. Sherri, the catering and event manager, was wonderful to work with as we worked on our red and black, metropolitan cocktail style wedding. Our ceremony was held right at the stadium too and then down to the club lounge area overlooking the lake for dinner stations and dancing.

Pictures were courtesy of Scott and Julie at Easywind Studio. Noel's friend had worked with these guys last year and so one of her first comments to me was that she saw I worked with them often and is there any way they would open any closed dates for her? I managed to work it in and I think they were happy they were there!

The highlight of the day is a surprise that Dana planned for Noel. Right after they were announced at the beginning of their reception, they walked over to do their first dance and Scott Jones (our fabulous DJ) played the music to "It Had to be You" and Dana serenaded Noel in true Harry Connick Jr./Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin style!

Be sure to watch a youtube clip of it here:

Another funny thing about this day is that I received a voicemail message from Dana early in the morning on the wedding day. He said something about how he is at the airport and won't be coming to the wedding today, sorry. Then he said he was just kidding, of course. That sums up their sense of humor! He really was calling to get a videographer for THAT SAME DAY. That's a first for me. I called around to 3 different companies I work with often and texted Dana the prices. We ended up with Scott and Mike from Moonstruck Productions. Can't wait to see the video!!

Congratulations Noel and Dana! I hope you have an amazing and fun-filled honeymoon in November and I can't wait to hang out with you sometime again soon!
