Emily and Brendon: October 10, 2009

I first met Brendon and Emily through a dear friend of mine, Bev at the Invitation Studio.  I have worked with Bev for years now on beautiful invitation orders for my clients!  Brendon is Bev's son and to say she was excited when he proposed to Emily would be an understatement.  :-)  I guess they had heard about me from her and once they started looking for locations realized they may need some help due to their busy work schedules.  I was so happy when they decided to include me in their plans and we started working on getting vendors booked and creating the design right away.

Emily started out with her vision of chocolate brown and cream and a simply elegant idea.  As you can see from the pictures, she changed her mind throughout the process which is something that brides go through (and need to!) to finally arrive at what they want and is right for them.

There are many highlights of the day, as this wedding was absolutely over the top and incredible.  Here are just a few:
  • The genuine LOVE that all who were in attendance that day could see that these two share for each other -- they were just so cute and the end of the ceremony truly brought tears to my eyes.
  • Brendon's Dad constructed and designed their chuppah so that they can keep it in their backyard on their deck or patio and always remember their wedding day!  How wonderful is THAT?!
  • Working with Rachel and Ted from Linczak Photography, who totally hit it off with the bride and groom and did so many extras for them including a large canvas print from their engagement session and a slideshow displayed at the end of the night of the formal images from the beginning of the day
  • Working with the wonderful staff at one of my favorite locations in Cleveland, the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
This wedding was also published in Today's Bride magazine and online.

Without further adieu, here are the images from the day from Linczak Photography.
 
  
  

 
  

 
  
  
This gorgeous cake was created by Lauren and Marianne at White Flower Cake Shoppe.  A miniature version was created to be gluten-free for the guests who required that!


A lovely note I received from Emily shortly after her wedding!
