Bobby and Angela, May 8, 2010

What a fun wedding Bobby and Angela threw for their family and friends!  I met this sweet couple almost a year ago and from day one, I knew that we would end up as friends!  Bobby and Angela have so much respect for one another and the love that they share is evident as soon as you meet them.  The wedding that we planned centered around family and tradition….and great food! 

The ceremony occured at St. Marons in Downtown Cleveland and the reception was held at Casa di Borally’s.  I have to say, Bobby told me for months that the food was amazing…..and he was right.   The pasta tasted just like my Great Grandma Jennie’s with the shredded Romano cheese….Mmmmm! 

Thank you to Bobby and Angela’s families for making me “part of the family” for a night.  Bobby’s mother kept saying, “now I know why Bobby and Angela love you so much…!”  I’m so happy the day was everything they hoped it to be!

I do not take pictures at my weddings but I was able to snag a few shots from relatives to post on the blog.  As soon as I have the professional photo’s, I will post again! 

Bobby’s Uncle owns Sweetheart USA and they made the cake!  It tasted great and it looked fantastic! 

Renee and Chad – March 13, 2010

 

The first wedding of the season, and what a wedding!  I had the pleasure of helping to coordinate the wedding for Renee and Chad this past weekend.  What a beautiful, loving, committed couple and a joyful family. 

The wedding ceremony happened at the stunning Hartville Mennonite Church and the reception was at Greystone Hall in Akron.  Greystone has recently been taken over by the John S. Knight Center in Akron and the staff there did a fantastic job.  The minister for the wedding was a family friend of the couple and ironically was the brother of a good friend of mine – what a thoughtful and heartwarming ceremony!

This wedding was special for me from day one, as Renee is the sister of one of my favorite wedding professionals, James Nisly.  James and his lovely wife, Genevieve, are phenomenal photographers in Northeast Ohio – Genevieve Nisly Photography.  There was a bit of pressure to make sure this wedding was executed perfectly, but not nearly as much pressure for me, as for the photographers associated with this one!  James and Genevieve wanted to enjoy the wedding day, so they trusted the photography to Tom Forrest and the Inlux Photo Team of Jarred and Heather.  It was like Paparazzi at times…to watch these 3 photographers work was exciting.  They caught every angle and were just all around wonderful people to share the day with.  What an energetic and exciting wedding to be a part of.  And the photo’s….there was NO need for me to have a camera, so you will have to travel to see some amazing photo’s of this wedding!  Enjoy Tom’s Blog and Inlux’s Blog….fantastic work!

Renee and Chad – thank you for trusting me with your day.  I hope that you enjoyed every second of it.  You truly were a beautiful Bride and Groom and I wish you nothing but happiness!

Soiree – Inspirational Success!

About a week ago, Genevieve Nisly and I held the first Northeast Ohio Bridal Soiree!  The night was planned as an inpirational cocktail hour for brides to gather ideas and meet wonderful wedding professionals, held at Brookside Country Club.  We partnered with Neil Leeson of Neil Leeson Decor and Floral to design 4 distinctly different weddings.  We paired his designs with linens, paper products, wedding dresses, and wedding cakes to create a complete look. 

We worked with some of Northeast Ohio’s absolute best professionals to create the evening.  Laura Woofter of Paper Allure, Dean Ross of Event Lighting, Abbott’s Bridal, West Side Bakery, Lnique Linens, Jerry Bruno Productions, 2nd Mile Productions, Canton Chair Rental, Be Seated, and ELM Rentals

Shall we plan another one?!?

Other Coordinators

Now you may be curious why I would post on my blog about another coordinator….I am not worried about competition, never have been.  I was the person at bridal shows that would go up to other coordinators and instead of posing as a bride to steal their information, I would introduce myself….ask them to go to lunch and form a friendship.  I can’t do every wedding…..in fact, I am not a coordinator that wants to take on even dozens of weddings a year.  I take on several great clients each year, produce fantastic events for them and make sure that they feel as if THEY are the ONLY bride that I am working with. 

So yes, I become friends and recommend other coordinators.  One of my dear friends, Emilie Duncan, moved to Columbus a few years back.  When she lived here, we worked weddings together and learned from each other….I miss her but know she is very happy in Columbus with her business.

This past spring, I had the pleasure of becoming friends with a relatively new coordinator to our area, but NOT new to the business, Brandi Hammerstone of All Events Planned.  Brandi and I have little girls (2 year olds!) so we have a lot in common!  We now plan playdates and I even had Brandi help me at a wedding in August that was just incredible (I cannot share pictures at the request of the family).   And then she graciously coordinated my sister’s wedding as well in October!

Brandi is not afraid of competition either….and I think she thinks pretty highly of me and my business.  She recently did an interview of me for her blog….. her it is:  Brandi’s Blog!
