Lisa and Austin were married in St. Bernard Catholic Church with a reception that followed at Brookside Farms in Akron, Ohio on October 3. Lisa looked flawless in a fit-and-flare lace gown with a scalloped bateau neckline, her hair done to one side and softly curled. She carried a bouquet of hydrangeas, baby’s breath, and lavender. Her ‘maids donned long one-shoulder gray chiffon dresses, while the groom and his men opted for a classic black suit and matching skinny ties. The 230 guests gathered in the church for a traditional ceremony. After the couple exchanged vows, they recessed out of the church, where their guests waved banners that read “Oh Joy!” A rustic-inspired reception followed at a nearby barn. “The vintage/rustic approach guided my wedding planning,” Lisa said of her inspiration. “I wanted to keep things classy while showing off our personalities.” The wooden barn was decorated with string lights, white drapery, and vintage chandeliers. Pumpkin lanterns and an old wooden chest with photos were also featured in the space. “The grayish weather set a very poetic tone for the wedding; both inside the church and the barn,” Lisa said. Guests sat at round tables in white folding chairs as they dined on barbecue! For dessert guests enjoyed sweet and sugary peach cakes as well as pumpkin, apple, and pecan pies. “If you have a specific vision, go for it. You won’t have any regrets when all is said and done,” Lisa advised. See the full board here.

Mr. DJ

Kristen and Kevin were married at The Carriage House in Mason, Ohio on March 22. The bride looked radiant in a strapless a-line gown and wore her hair in a curly partial updo. She carried a springtime bouquet of pink and white peonies. Her veil had special meaning because she used lace from her mother’s wedding dress to put it together. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit, which he pinned a lucky penny onto. “I wanted an intimate wedding that included as much meaningful and personal items and touches as possible,” Kristen explained. “I hoped to combine my taste for an elegant and understated wedding with a rustic touch as a way of mending our two styles.” After exchanging both traditional and personal vows in front of 100 guests, the newlyweds recessed down the aisle carrying their son as guests threw rose petals. For the reception, Kristen and Kevin offered a unique menu to their guests. “We chose to have a brunch reception which meant eggs benedict, a waffle bar, sausage and bacon and of course Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s!” Kristen said. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and burlap and lace table runners in wooden folding chairs. Tables featured a mason jar centerpiece with either a candle or pink flowers on top of a wood slice. Guests indulged in a three-tiered cake adorned with roses and watched as Kristen and Kevin played the “shoe-lywed game.” Kristen advises couples to think about what matters most to them when creating their budget. “Define the most important aspects for you and then make it happen. Whether it’s the flowers, the venue or the photographer, pick a few key things and budget from there,” Kristen said. What fabulous advice! See the full board here.

Inna + Igor: A Traditional Metallic-Infused Spring Ohio Lodge Wedding By Nine Zero Photography

 Inna and Igor were married at American Croation Lodge in Cleveland, Ohio on May 31. “Our faith and conservative upbringing was the core of our inspiration,” Inna said. “Before we began our wedding planning, Igor and I decided we wanted it God-centered, conservative and imperfect.” Fun fact: They knew each other growing up and even tried to match each other up with friends. However, after a trip to Chicago in 2013, Igor realized that he and Inna were meant to be. The bride wore a long-sleeved lace a-line wedding gown with an illusion neckline, accessorized with mantilla fingertip-length veil, while the groom a navy blue suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long metallic dresses and carried bouquets of roses, anemones, and dried blossoms. Notice also that each groomsmen is wearing polka dot socks? Before the ceremony, the couple opted for a first look. “It was exhilarating and exciting,” she said. Plus, it gave them a few moments to soak in the fact that hello, they were getting married! And celebrating with their nearest and deartest closest family and friends. How many attended? 525. The banquet hall tables were decorated with white linens and covers over chairs, lanterns filled with REAL butterflies,  jeweled candle votives, and antique picture frame numbers. In between dinner and dancing, the four-tiered cake was cut, and at the end of the nigth, a sea of wish lanterns were sent up into the sky. See the full board here.

Alexis + Josh: A Cheerful Sunshine Yellow Spring Ohio Historic Home Wedding By Maiko Media
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Alexis and Josh were married at The Glendale Lyceum in Glendale, Ohio on May 24. “We were having an outdoor ceremony in May, in Ohio, who knows what the weather would be like at that time?” Alexis said. “We had a very solid backup plan in case it rained, but no bride wants to have to do that. All week everyone kept asking if I looked at the weather, and I kept responding ‘No, I am not looking until Thursday night.’ It ended up being a perfect day!” The bride wore a strapless tulle ball gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long yellow chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, roses, and stocks. “I would not change a single thing about my wedding. Well, except for the groom’s and groomsmen’s socks. They were The University of Michigan socks, and I am an Ohio State fan,” she said. Following the proceedings, the reception took place inside the tea room. Tables were decorated with gray linens, navy blue napkins, tall floral centerpieces atop mirrors, and homemade buckeye ball favors at each place setting. “I graduated college with an art studio and art education degree, so I knew I would be coming up with a lot of the details myself,” she said. “My husband however is very traditional, so I knew we would have to incorporate both of our personalities in the wedding. I knew I wanted bright colors and a very ‘spring-like’ feel.” Next to the gifts and cards, guests were encouraged to sign a book filled with photos, and were showcased on a map of exactly where they traveled from. The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar, and exited amongst a sea of sparklers at the end of the night, ready for their honeymoon in Jamaica. “Not worrying about anything allowed me to enjoy marrying my best friend and really appreciate him and the people around me,” Alexis said.
