I knew when I saw Whitney and Jerry's engagement photos that I had two models on my hands. They are not only the nicest couple ever but they are definitely the most stylish as well! It only made sense that they would choose the hip Metropolitan 9 Hotel for their intimate November wedding. I loved the black, gold and ivory color scheme that Whitney selected and our use of square tables and gold accents created a sleek vibe. It also has to be mentioned that these two fashionistas looked über glamorous in their wedding attire. Again, they outdid themselves! 

I continue to follow their adventures on social media and I will always remember them fondly!

Hillbrook is one of my favorite venues for many reasons – a beautiful setting nestled

in the woods of Chagrin Falls with amazing food and wonderful service (and the

best part - Gina, of course)! But something that gets me every time is the sense of

calm I feel as I pull in the driveway. The serene atmosphere made the perfect

backdrop for Kathy and Cory’s wedding!

Kathy and Cory’s wedding style was the most charming and lovely combination of

organic elegance. The muted tones elicited a peaceful feeling which perfectly

complimented the setting. I honestly felt like I was walking through a tranquil

enchanted forest!

One of my favorite details of the wedding day was the awesome ice cream bar –

something the groom had talked about since day one. Given his proficiency in

concocting the perfect ice cream sundae, I must admit, I was quite nervous ordering

the “right” toppings! I remember so fondly watching Kathy and her father dance to

“Cinderella” and felt such warmth and honor in that moment to be part of their

amazing day! Kathy and Cory – thank you for allowing me to be part of your day!

I wish you the best!
