Christina & AJ's Wedding at The Tudor Arms Hotel

Tuesday, December 17, 2013



Life came full circle for me when Christina phoned me about her upcoming Cleveland wedding. I found out very quickly that her grandfather was the former mayor of my hometown and I was tickled to be a part of their family celebration. In fact, her grandparents were a big reason why they chose Cleveland for their wedding. Christina, AJ and his family live in New York and Christina’s parents live in Florida, so Cleveland sounded like the perfect location to bring everyone together!

Family was to be the focus of this beautiful union. I also can’t forget to mention their Italian heritage! There was a heavy dose of both throughout. We created a 16 foot cookie table that I couldn’t pass by without sneaking a taste, along with an Italian quote wrapped around each napkin. Our table numbers were also in Italian. Of course, guests were treated to a pasta course before their entrée.

I’m absolutely in love with the beautiful flowers and décor. The gold details along with those subtle hints of the wine colored flowers in the centerpieces popped against the pale gray walls and the gold really brought out the wall frescoes. Christina and AJ planned a family centered celebration where their guests could dance the night away. It was an amazing day and I had a wonderful time getting to know them and their special families.
