Inspired by the Beauty of Bright Spring Florals

Garden roses and ranunculus in candy colored hues are inspiring this modern take on a spring wedding and it is 100% speaking to the flower lover in all of us.  A Charming Fete and Molly Taylor & Co are at the center of this wildly gorgeous spread and with Lauren Gabrielle behind the camera, you best believe this vault of images is a knock out. And then there’s the film by Storybox Cinema… a must play for gorgeous spring wedding inspiration.


We were so inspired and refreshed by the bloom of brightly colored spring florals, specifically the lush ranunculus in beautiful candy shades of coral, peach and pink. We wanted to create an intimate dinner scene below a floral and natural muslin draped canopy. We paired a soft velvet seafoam table covering with natural linen covered chairs so the colors in the florals would really pop. We draped a natural muslin fabric over the wood pergola for a softer look with smilax vines and bright blooms dripping from the sides. Bailey of Molly Taylor and Co brought the space to life with her magic touch. Stationery items were accented in pale blue seafoam colors to coordinate. We worked with a local company to create a custom welcome gift basket pulling in the candy color tones. Plush velvet lounge funiture in blush hues and soft mint were the perfect accent. The pale blue cake with swiss dot and textured ruffle tiers was a beautiful confection adorned with intricate sugar flowers. Our bride model played dress up in two gorgeous and ultra feminine gowns, the first a carefully beaded Enzoani with sheer bodice and applique with a lavish, full, tulle skirt and the second a more fun, fitted mermaid style from Blush by Hayley Paige. Our groom model (and Zach Galifianakis look alike) wore a custom navy suit with chic candy colored accessories, a blush bow tie and patterned silk pocket square.

From Kirkbrides Wedding Planning and DesignCam and Wes met at The Island School in the Bahamas so a classic, tented wedding at Kirtland Country Club with a Bahamian flair was the perfect setting for their nuptials. The sailcloth tent from Everything Tented provided a stunning backdrop for a summer wedding in Cleveland.

The bride and groom chose the putting green looking out toward a gorgeous oak tree for their ceremony, a never-before-used area of the grounds. This allowed for an epic processional from the Clubhouse to the green, accompanied by the beautiful sounds of Sonata Strings of Cleveland Music Group.

After the ceremony, guests moved to the patio of the Club where they were greeted with delicious hors d’oeuvres, a signature cocktail of dark ‘n’ stormys, and steel drums provided by Jeff Neitzke of Cleveland Music Group. The beer boat was filled with Kalik, a Bahamian beer, and the Bahamian Androsia batik linens and custom corn hole set transported guests to a relaxed island oasis in the middle of Ohio!

Upon entering the tent for dinner, you couldn’t miss the bright, fresh floral arrangements by Cindy Hollister of Artisans Floral Design which popped in their crisp color palette of bright to light pinks and corals. Classic bistro lighting provided by Rock the House naturally lit the space.

Event Source provided lovely clear china, allowing the stunning Casablanca linens from La Tavola to shine. Guests dined on a brilliantly curated menu of fresh flavor profiles inspired by the culinary delicacies of the Bahamas.

As always, the semi-naked cake from Luna Bakery was stunning and tasted just as amazing as it looked! The cake topper was perfect for the theme of the evening – two fish kissing!

Thanks to the energy and charisma of the band, TCB, the dance floor was packed all night! I truly have never seen so many guests out on the dance floor at the end of an evening! Luckily guests were able to refuel with a late night snack from Chik-Fil-A, the groom’s favorite, and Mitchell’s Ice Cream!

This gorgeous wedding and all of its details were carefully captured by Hunter Harrison of Hunter Photographic. Just looking at the photos brings back all of the excitement and memories of a lovely wedding day!

From A Charming FeteWe are so excited to share this gorgeous wedding. We worked very closely with the bride on every tiny detail. She loved the elegant Downton Abbey aesthetic so we really tried to pull that 20’s formality through in all the details down to the flatware, cut crystal, color scheme and vintage style champagne tower. The tall floral pieces on the head table with sterling silver candelabra base were perfection, the perfect amount of drama. The venue location is a historic club in Cleveland and lended the perfect atmosphere for outdoor ceremony and 20’s garden vibe. 

From the Bride… I wanted our wedding to reflect who we are as a couple and where we are headed in life. Basically, Matt and I come from hardworking middle-class families who fell on a lot of difficult times, but through that we both managed to become really successful in our academics (through scholarships and work), and to me that personifies a lot of what it means to be American. In that sense, I wanted the 1920’s vibe because to me it reflects a glittering time of success and celebration. We are also both big nature buffs so we wanted to tie that in tastefully, through big blooming bouquets, lush cascading vines and the beautiful formality of Downton Abbey times. We worked with our planner to create a magical 20’s Garden Party inspired design, down to the details on the cakes and the curated menu. I LOVED that feeling of seeing it all come together on the day of the wedding. I could tell each of the guests were stunned by it too, people are still talking to my parents and I about how it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to. Saying my vows to Matthew in front of everyone was really emotional for me and I just felt like the luckiest person in the world. Another favorite moment was watching my bridesmaids and our moms get the movie star treatment and end up looking so beautiful, that really meant a lot to me! They deserve it. Matt’s friends really rallied around him last minute when he had two groomsmen cancellations, it was really wonderful and spoke to what a great man Matt is. The guys also loved getting their hair done and personal grooming like proper gentlemen. It also warmed my heart SO MUCH to see all the guests dining on the amazing food, taking advantage of the open bar, dancing, talking, and celebrating! The pictures of them having a blast are among my favorites from the day.
