Jessica and Jeff shared their first look on the iconic Union Club staircase that was dripping with candles. Jeff's face lit up with love, passion, and happiness when he finally got to see his beautiful bride in her vibrant blue high heels. The wedding guests arrived to a ceremony space that was filled with asymmetrical arrangements adorning the fireplace. They were then seated to the gracious sounds of Athena Strings that blew them away with concert grade music. An unforgettable moment was when Jessica and Jeff's grandparents served as the flower girls and ring bearer; the room filled with smiles and laughter. After cocktail hour, the 100 guests were greeted by the elegantly decorated king's table when they walked into the ballroom. The bride and groom's chairs held two wreaths of greenery with a touch of white floral pieces. Later in the evening, a rose bar was set up outside of the ballroom for guests to enjoy along with a variety of Luna cookies embellished with swags of floral and greenery. Jessica and Jeff spent the rest of their time dancing the night away with their family and friends. It was an amazing wedding in Cleveland, Ohio that day!

I knew from my first conversation with Cassandra and Ernie that their wedding would be off the charts! Two of the coolest, most stylish people came to me to plan their Rock n' Roll Cleveland wedding and I couldn’t be more excited!

What I love the most about this wedding is its authenticity. Each and every detail was truly Cassandra and Ernie. There was so much meaning which shined clearly on the wedding day. I must admit, when a bride tells me she wants to hand make her own stationery I have a slight (or not so slight) anxiety attack. However, Cassandra is extremely talented and the final product was unlike anything I have seen  - take a look for yourself! The details of this amazing wedding are beyond gorgeous and words don’t do it justice so enjoy the incredible photos from Suzuran Photography!

A gorgeous, gatsby art deco styled wedding at historic hotel in downtown Cleveland!? Vibrant personalities from the couple shine through at this wedding with stunning stationery, an over the top dessert station and overall a day that could definitely rival a day in the 1920's.? Do not miss Karen's amazing dress - a custom Jovani Fashions gown.

When working with a bride who has a clear theme and style for her wedding, it is my dream as a planner because the ideas, designs, and possibilities are endless! The pictureesque Tudor Arms hotel that was renovated in recent years to restore the Tudor and Crystal ballrooms was the perfect choice for this gorgeous wedding which was all glamour and nostalgia.

The evening started with guests entering the ceremony to an elaborate floral and feather masterpiece backdrop by Plantscaping by Blooms and were handed art deco styled programs fit for a Daisy bride.   Karen left no detail unturned and we just love those vintage vow books she selected to hold the special sentiments!

For the dinner and dancing portion of the evening, an eye-catching four tier cake from White Flower could be seen displayed in the ballroom. The sparkle linens added to the glam and luxe of the wedding day and the reception stationery continued our art deco gatsby feel.  We even overheard guests saying they feel like they stepped back into the 1920's!  Don't miss the themed dessert station with stunning dessert signs and lots of mini desserts by Luna Bakery for guests to delight in.

This was such a memorable wedding day in every way, shape and form!  Congrats Karen and Robert!
