The wedding season is officially over for 2014. We attended four beautiful weddings over the past seven months, each couple different and each wedding beautiful in its own way. The bride’s were gorgeous and the drinks were a plenty…And no, I am not going to judge these on, dress, venue, food, and overall experience… but I did think about it!
Wedding #1 – 5.23.14
“The Bridal Party“
Location: Silver Lakes Country Club, Stow, OH
Colors: Navy + Grey
Standout: The Steak! YUM
Our first wedding for the season was our dear friends, and B and I were both lucky enough to be in the bridal party! The day was special, and a long time coming for these two high school sweethearts. The night was beautiful and we sent the couple away with a sparkler send off.
Wedding #2 – 8.30.14
Location: The Rose Cafe, Lorain, OH
Colors: Navy + Seersucker
Standout: Campbell’s Popcorn at the end of the night
Next on the tour was B’s coworker and now friend’s wedding. This may have taken place on one of the hottest days of the year, but we were excited for a little getaway in Vermilion, a cute little water town. With views of the lake at the venue and a DJ crankin’ up the tunes, we helped shut down the reception.
Wedding #3 – 10.18.14
“A Hampel Wedding“
Location: Woodcliff Hotel & Spa, Fairport, NY
Colors: Navy + Grey
Standout: Pumpkin Centerpieces + Homemade Chocolate Covered Apples
This was my cousins wedding… and my Hampel family weddings are always a crazy good time. And this wedding did not disappoint. The ceremony was heartfelt and tear-jerking and the reception was full of drinks and dancing, it was an awesome time (not to mention my whole family was there and they are pretty fun!)… we definitely paid for it the next day.
Wedding #4 – 11.1.14
“East Side Wedding”
Location: Nighttown, Cleveland, OH
Hastag: #TheyDidntHaveAHashtag *frown face*
Standout: Carmel Apple Cupcakes
My brother’s best friend from high school and also best man tied the knot this past weekend. He was also a second brother to me growing up, and ironically we both moved out to Cleveland the same year for school. This wedding was not your traditional wedding, but was effortlessly sweet with touches of fall throughout. It was nice seeing old friends, plus my brother and sister-in-law for the weekend!
Wedding season is always a fun and busy time, but I am happy to have the 2014 wrapped-up, with the next wedding season already in sight. My best friend since freshman year in high school got engaged last week and asked me to be her Maid of Honor this weekend! I am so excited and happy to be able to be by her side on such a special day, like we’ve both been for each other, for over a decade now. It will be a bit of a long distance, but that just means more weekend trips in to see her and help plan her big day!
