Heather and Evan’s outdoor wedding in Cleveland is the perfect inspiration for laid-back, fun couples. You hardly saw any of the guest at their seats throughout the whole reception, because almost everyone was just mingling as they enjoyed the lemonade & tea bar and freshly brewed beer. The evening couldn’t have flowed any better than it did. The ceremony and reception was held at a private estate right outside of Cleveland, and it was absolutely beautiful.
Inspired by their love of Jane Austen & Downton Abbey, Heather’s dress and jewelry and Evan’s suit had a very turn of the century feel. Evan and his groomsmen wore morning jackets, and Evan also wore an ascot tie. Although Heather’s modern shoes were Tom’s, she choose a feminine yellow lace.
They were surrounded by family & friends who couldn’t have been happier fro them. Many of their talented friends helped with the wedding, including the florist, cake designer, caterer, and musicians to make this wedding just perfect.
Their love for each other was so apparent. You couldn’t wipe a smile off either one of their faces.
The favors were coffee beans (shown on the left)
Gorgeous spring bouquet made by a family friend, owner of KEW Designs. They had fresh mint in them which was just heavenly. I highly recommend it!
Evan said he was so excited to get to wear morning jackets.
Many amazing hor d’oeuvres were served by some of the nicest servers I’ve met at a wedding. My two favorites were the homemade pretzels with beer cheese mustard and the grilled veggie kabobs.
The couple have a love for Mad Libs, so there was a book on every table, along with kazoos, for the guests to enjoy.
The cake was not only beautiful, but it was also delicious.
Heather and Evan were such a blast to be around!
I decided to join in on the fun.
