This Garden chic wedding for Emma and Zack is filled with
summer delights galore! Being the second time around working
with the bride’s family, we really enjoyed the process and flow
again and feel so lucky to have the opportunity to create a second
masterpiece for this family!

We first started working together over the winter and Emma
mentioned that she was going for Rustic elements mixed with
elegance. I called it garden chic. The venue itself, Windows on
the River, is a renovated warehouse situated on the Cuyahoga
River looking out to the downtown Cleveland skyline so it has that
industrial feel. We all know that the mixture of styles is so in right
now. We embarked on this fun styling spree, incorporating all the
feminine colors of shades of purple, blush, ivory and gold.
The rustic charm was accented by reclaimed wooden farm tables
and wooden round tables from Borrow Rentals, a fan favorite here
in Cleveland. All tables are stamped with the original location they
were salvaged from.

It was very Important for Emma to mix the rustic tables with the
elegance of the gold Vanessa plates and the colorful smaller plates
for the place setting that was chosen. The planning team of Emma
and her mother and I felt that darling and detailed stationery was a
must for this wedding! A romantic font and watercolor and floral
design was custom created for us by Lovely Somethings.

The Floral was a mixture of muted hues of lavender, blush, china
blue and green. A focal point of the entire wedding day was the
large chandelier dripping with all of that lush floral and greenery!
For the ceremony, Emma wanted a blush backdrop with dripping

The Place cards were set in wooden boxes of moss, yet another
feminine and rustic enhanced aspect.
Cocktail hour was held in the Cleveland Aquarium, giving yet
another amazing and fun aspect of this wedding for guests. Where
else can you enjoy a superb view of the Cleveland skyline, while
sipping on drinks and commenting on the different types of marine
life swimming around?

There was no shortage of sweets at this wedding. From the custom
gold leaf designed pastel 5 tier wedding cake by Hummingbird
Bakery, to the delicious donut bar by Brewnuts! You cannot miss
the darling mirror with hand calligraphy by Lovely Somethings as

This wedding, smack dab in the middle of summer, was something
that wedding dreams are made of and we will always have visions
of those donuts displayed on that beautiful antique furniture from
Borrow, underneath that floral dripping chandelier in our heads!!!
