Nora & Chris: September 19

Monday, October 19, 2009 1 comment

I think that September 19 was the last really nice day of the year in Cleveland, that was warm enough to be outside. What an amazing wedding! The weather was perfect for this outdoor ceremony and reception on the lake. I have never in my life seen more flowers at a wedding than this one (except in the movies I think)! Ed at Orban's Floral really outdid himself. Check out the amazing arch, the thousands of flowers in the tent, and even my personal favorite, the mini cocktail table centerpieces of the yellow roses and lemons!

I worked with Nora, Chris and Nora's mom Susie for about a year to plan this gorgeous Great Gatsby/Stealing Beauty/Vintage styled wedding at Georgian Manor in Bratenahl. The highlight of the day (besides the flowers of course) was definitely the music. Chris is a musician and his choices for the wedding were over the top amazing. From the various live musicians at the ceremony, to the Toronto based band The Sadies (alternative country band) for the reception, I have to point out how unique the evening was from many other weddings I'm used to just based on the music alone.

I feel honored to have been the planner for this fabulous wedding...not only because of the obvious, but also because Nora was one of the most gracious and kind people I have ever worked with. She always seemed to be looking out for ME...shouldn't it be the other way around? :-) I have a feeling she's like that in all of her relationships. Chris is a lucky guy! Congratulations Nora and Chris and all the best to you in the years to come!
