Our wedding took place on September 12 at a little place called Skyview Lodge in Brunswick, Ohio, which is a bit southwest of Cleveland. It's a beautiful old tin roofed lodge atop a big hill with an amazing view.
We had the short ceremony at 5pm at the gazebo in the backyard. After waking up to rain, it turned out to be the most perfect weather ever.
With a convenient break in his treatments, my Dad was rested up and feeling great to walk me down the aisle, which was a great blessing.
Guests enjoyed drinks and played corn hole out back while we took some photos on the grounds. The reception began inside shortly after.

Next week I will share a few more details and photos of my bouquet with a tutorial on how to dry it after the big day. I'll also have a step by step how-to on making my birds nest ring pillow.
It was a beautiful sunset that night which everyone enjoyed from the back deck of the lodge. Later in the evening, my aunt and uncle surprised us by decorating the grounds with luminaries.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
