Ariel International Center Wedding with Annemarie and Ryan

You never ever know what you’re going to get with Ohio weather, ESPECIALLY in October.  Now, I LOVE October.  It’s my favorite month and not just because of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s quote about Octobers.  However, it can either be 80 or 20 so you never know what it will bring, especially for a planned outdoor ceremony.  In the end though it was a PERFECT fall day.  It was a bit cool but not too cold for a rooftop overlooking Lake Erie.  I’m so glad they were able to go forward with it because it was beautiful.

Annemarie and Ryan were a delight to work with.  All day they were charming and just so sweet and fun together.  Ryan gave her the most lovely wedding gift – he wrote a book of memories of their times together and how he felt during them.  EVERYONE was in tears, the bridesmaids had to leave the room so they wouldn’t ruin their makeup.  It was such a thoughtful gift!  Ryan got an Oculus and he was STOKED.

Their ceremony was so full of personal touches and so much fun!  The bridal party entered by dancing up the aisle to the altar and the gusts loved it.  The arch at the altar was made by Annemarie’s grandfather and was so lovely!  I loved the varied grey tones of the sola wood flowers and bridesmaid gowns.

The reception was amazing!  The toast from Annemarie’s sisters, which was SUNG and had a presentation to go along with it, literally brought everyone to their feet.  THEN!  SO MUCH AWESOME DANCING.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dance floor so wild and fun.

Enjoy reliving this fun wedding in Cleveland with me!
