Erin & Matt's Windows on the River Wedding

Working with a couple like Erin and Matt is a planner’s dream!  Erin had a very clear vision in mind and helping her plan her flight-themed wedding was an honor! It was the logistics of Matt’s career in the military, however, that complicated the plans a bit.  Due to training uncertainties, the date for Erin and Matt’s wedding was not even set until 3 months before the big day! 

When May 2 arrived, all of the plans were in place and it was sunny and 70 degrees – perfect for an outdoor ceremony overlooking the Cuyahoga River! A friend of the couple played the cello as Erin greeted her groom against the beautiful backdrop of the Cleveland city skyline.  And, of course, no military wedding is complete without the saber arch!

After the ceremony, guests moved inside to the River View Room for cocktails, dinner and dancing.  From the glow sticks (a tribute to the night Erin and Matt met) to the airplane table names and specialty stationery designed by Emily from Ting, every detail of the evening was personalized and unique.  Even the bridesmaids wore custom, handmade skirts!  Erin from The Budding Tree created beautiful floral décor incorporating colors from Matt’s Air Force uniform.  Kevin from The DJ Crew kept the dance floor packed through the last song!  Erin and Matt’s love for each other is truly palpable in the gorgeous photos by Angela and Jen of Aster and Olive.  Thank you to an amazing vendor team for executing every detail of Erin and Matt’s amazing wedding day!  Congrats Erin and Matt!

Thank you note:

Katie,

I don’t think there are words to describe how thankful I am that we had you as our wedding planner.  From the very beginning, you have exceeded my expectations.  You have been reliable, helpful, encouraging, honest, and an absolute joy to work with.  I feel like you are my fairy godmother making all my dreams come true.  I can only imagine how stressful your job is, but just know that what you have done for me will never be forgotten.  When I think about and talk about my wedding, you will always be one of the best parts.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Love,
Erin


P.S. If you can plan a wedding in seven months with a client in Mississippi and an uncertain date because of the military, you can do anything.
