Sharing a bit of Family History!

In August of 2017, I had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding of Betsey and AJ.  They were such a lovely couple to work with!  They held their wedding reception at Michauds Event Center in Strongsville, Ohio.  One of the fun things about Betsey and AJ, is their love of history, especially US Presidents, and visiting libraries and museums.  They incorporated this passion into their table decorations at their reception.  Each table was named after a specific US President, including the eights Presidents that came from Ohio.  In my family tree, I am a direct descendant of the Nineteenth President of the United States, President Rutherford B. Hayes.  He was one of the eight presidents from Ohio, hailing from the Fremont area, in Northwestern Ohio.  President Hayes is one of Great-Grandfathers, a few generations back, on my mother’s side of the family.  It’s pretty cool having this relation in my family.  You can visit President Hayes’s estate and library, Spiegel Grove, in Fremont.  You can also hold weddings and events there. I highly encourage you to check it out!

Many thanks to Betsey and AJ, for sharing their photographer’s fun shot of me!

Joe and Jenn’s Holiday Elopement – 11/27/2016

 

We are pleased to have assisted in the Holiday Elopement of Joe and Jenn, during Thanksgiving weekend!  Joe and Jenn have been together for many years, and finally decided to tie the knot.  The Reverend Catherine Daniels joined the lovebirds in marriage at the picturesque gazebo outside of the North Canton Civic Center, in North Canton, Ohio.  We provided a custom bouquet, toasting glasses and a sparkling beverage for celebrating their union, and a few other fun little gifts.  Congratulations, you two!  We wish you many years of happiness and blessings!

 

We have been blogged! With Joseph Testa Films

We have been blogged!  This time, with one of our videography partners, Joseph Testa Films.  We first met Joe on Facebook, chatting on several occasions in different wedding planning and industry-related groups.  When the opportunity came up to plan a destination wedding for one of our couples, Azia and Hondo, on relatively short notice, Joe and his wife Peggy happily agreed to assist us with videography for the wedding.  They did a fantastic job!  We highly recommend Joe for all of your video needs!

Since then, we have collaborated at several bridal shows, and often promote special deals with each other, in order to maximize value, while not sacrificing quality of service, for our clients.  We also co-administer several wedding message groups together on Facebook, providing planning advice and resources for brides and vendors.

Recently, Joe sent us a short questionnaire, using the answers to create a feature about our business.  Below is the link to the post on Joe’s blog.  Enjoy!
