Wedding Aces Bridal Buds

Leslie & Matt

April 27

Cleveland, Ohio


Q & A with the Couple:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It is truly a hidden gem in downtown Cleveland.  Not many people know about it and when you walk in, you are truly enamored by the grandeur and history of it.  It was beautifully charming and expressed both of our personalities.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. I wore the same train that my mom wore on her wedding day and my sister wore it on her wedding day as well.
  2. Matt and I met sailing and my Dad actually introduced us.  My Dad passed away about a year before our wedding and Matt took one of the sails from my Dad’s boat to make the ring bearer’s pillow.  He even sewed it himself.
  3. We bought two sailboats (actually, Christmas ornaments) for our wedding cake to represent the way we met.  We painted them in our wedding colors and now we can hang them on our Christmas tree every year.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Matt:  The first look. The first time I saw Leslie in her wedding dress, I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful she looked. 

Leslie:  Walking outside of my mom’s house and seeing Matt waiting for me for our first look.  He looked so excited and so emotional. I couldn’t wait to see him, kiss him, and marry him! It was the perfect day and I don’t think I ever stopped smiling.


Pink Summer Country Club Wedding in Ohio

Gwyn & Sam

July 2

Kettering, Ohio


On Tuesday, we shared a red, white, and blue wedding that took place on July 4th weekend last year. Today’s wedding took place on the exact same day – but has a totally different look and feel! While going all-American is fun for a July 4th wedding, this wedding proves you certainly don’t have to (though taking a few patriotic portraits is always a nice touch!)!


Our Q&A with the Bride:

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Our flowers, especially around the ceremony site.

2. The fireworks!

3. Our invitations

And there was so much more: the sno-cones, cotton candy, my dress, the timing and location of the ceremony and reception, the oyster bar, specialty cocktails, having my father’s cufflinks in my bouquet (he passed away 14 years ago), my mom walking me down the aisle, my string quartet playing pop music during cocktail hour…

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Take it in stride. You can’t control it all, and some of the details you weren’t expecting will be your favorites.

Tell us about the one moment from your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about.

Looking into Sam’s eyes and reciting the vows that we wrote for each other.

DIY Spring Wedding at Krippendorf Lodge, Ohio

Rachael & Brian

May 11

Krippendorf Lodge, Rowe Woods, Milford, OH


What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Bride: The wrap around porch, stone patio, and surrounding woods made the lodge the perfect location for our outdoor wedding. It felt very secluded and magical.

What three (3) details from your wedding were your favorites?

Bride: Our three favorite details would probably be: The invites that I designed, each one was assembled by hand,  the twinkle lights hanging above the patio during the reception, the twig and lace wrapped flower vases on each table that I made.

Intimate Ohio Winter Wedding

Megan & Tyler

December 28

Boardman, Ohio

Before we start back to featuring our warm weather weddings – I wanted to share this adorable, intimate, December wedding with you. The florals have an organic look with the use of pine-cones, both in the bouquets and the boutonniere’s. The bride’s angora wool shawl accents her vintage dress perfectly.


Real Wedding: Katie + Tyson

Katie + Tyson

September 12, 2009

Port Clinton, OH

The couple met while attending University of Michigan. The ceremony and reception took place on Lake Erie at the Catawba Island Club. The lakeside ceremony was immediately followed by a tented cocktail hour and reception. Katie and Tyson chose every avenue of entertainment for their guests; a string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and both a DJ and a band to alternate throughout the reception. The take-home favors for all of the guests were individually packaged S’mores desserts, and the newlyweds exited their grand reception in a shower of sparklers and drove their University of Michigan golf cart off into the night.
