Our Wedding Day

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.




Click here to see more photos of the reception decor and my awesome custom card box (shown below). Here you can find a step-by-step tutorial on making the tissue flower napkin rings we used.




Click here for a closer look at our cake buffet with a tutorial on making the sign holders and templates for the flavor cards.



Click here for all the details of how I put together our candy bar, downloadable templates of the candy labels and all the information and resources you need to create your own candy bar.



If you missed it before, here is a post about my dress and all the handmade touches that made up my bridal ensemble!






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.

Such gorgeousness. I am so glad that your father was able to walk you down the aisle. So special. Everything was beautiful and that dress! Please tell me you noticed/planned that in the black and white full length photo with your backs to the camera that your shadow makes a sun filled heart in between the two of you. That made me teary. Congratulations to you and your new husband. Looking forward to more details.
