Amber and Jared’s first look took place at Lake Forest Country Club which was also the location of their reception. Their first look was so fun; they couldn’t stop smiling at each other. Lake Forest provided a beautiful setting for indoor and outdoor photos.
At the reception, instead of setting out a guest book, they provided various anniversary cards for people to sign. As someone who tends to forget special occasions, I would happily sign several anniversary cards at once, knowing that I would probably forget to send one on my own. Clever idea, right? Personally, I’m glad we stayed at the reception long enough to see Amber’s sister’s dance moves. I was very impressed.
Best wishes to you both!
If I were to re-do my wedding, I would copy everything that Jennifer and Mo did. Thorncreek Winery was the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony and reception. They shared this day with their closest friends and family, and enjoyed a sit down meal where stories were passed between tables and heartfelt speeches were give by several family members. Jennifer and Mo have a really amazing history, and it was a lot of fun to be a part of their wedding day. Best wishes to the two of you and your family!
We started the day at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel where Jennifer and Brian were getting ready. Check out Jennifer’s super sparkly shoes. I love that brides these days don’t wear boring shoes. I’m not a shoe person, but I’ll admit to being a little excited each week for the “shoe unveiling”. Before the ceremony, we took advantage of a couple locations within the Renaissance for bridal party pictures. We hit up a few locations down by the waterfront and East 4th after the ceremony, before heading over to the Cleveland City Hall Rotunda for the reception.
