Cleveland Wedding Planner | 2013 {so far} in Review

What…a whirlwind 2013 has been so far.  As I sit watching the snow fall on this chilly November afternoon while I prep for the year's final weddings, I thought we'd do a little recap of all the year has given us.  It's been one of excitement and growth for sure filled with stellar brides & grooms with whom we loved planning & designing.  We've had a few awesome photo shoots, and even had a little time to sneak in some travel.  Yes, 2013's been good to us.  I promise you full features to come on many of these highlights, but for now, here's a sneak peek at what we've been up to all year.

Spring brought photo shoots!  We LOVE photo shoots!  We designed & styled this emerald, Art Deco shoot for Style Unveiled in honor of Pantone's 2013 Color of the Year.

We styled this Garden Party shoot for the lovely ladies at Something White Bridal for their spring/summer Lookbook.  It was also featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs!

Becky & Brock's Regal Tudor Arms wedding kicked off our wedding season in glamorous style.  We loved the enormity of Becky's gown and the clouds of baby's breath that decorated the space.  And we can't forget the 100+ gilded pears we created for them!

Terri & Ben's 78th Street Studios wedding brought a super fun, super huge build for the Shi Shi team.  We created a 16' x16' dance canopy for them with ribbon, fabric, and light.  It was so exciting to see it come to life!  

Sting performed in June at the famed Ravinia Festival just outside of Chicago - so we thought why not?  Ravinia is fantastic venue; absolutely love it there. And Sting, well how can you beat Sting?

Anna & Marty's wedding at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel brought this sparkly design and a packed dance floor all night.

We celebrated the 4th of July in NYC watching the incredible Macy's fireworks and eating banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery.  

And we can't wait to bring you photos from the pros from our August and after weddings that include this deliciousness: 

Our iPhone pics just don't do this eye candy justice, but full posts with pro images to follow we promise!

We also squeezed one more warm weather getaway into the mix at the end of September to Charleston, SC and Isle of Palms where we explored the history, ate like kings, and lounged on the beach.  It was heaven!  

To all of you who have been a part of this year, we are so grateful and appreciative of the work you do for us and our couples.  To all of our 2013 couples, it's been a blast!  And to 2013, thank you for blessing us with more joy, excitement, and creativity than we could have imagined.  Can't wait to see what the holiday season brings!
