Tim & Julianne are two very special people, there’s no doubt about it! We SO enjoyed getting to know them when they spoiled us with an overnight trip to Cleveland during their engagement session, and to say we have been looking forward to this wedding for a long time is quite the understatement! We knew it was going to be ridiculously gorgeous and well thought out because Julianne is actually one of the bee’s from Bee For The Day… which is one of our most FAVORITE wedding coordinating companies in the area! Seriously. These ladies are ON IT! Not only was all the decor and timing absolutely perfect, but the weather blew us ALL away! In a week where we were lucky if we got up to 50 degree weather, their wedding day was sunny and gorgeous at 70 degrees! We think Julianne’s mom put it best when she said, “We have no one to thank but God for that one!”
We started the day at Julianne’s parent’s gorgeous home in Sylvania. When we walked in, all the bridesmaids were getting their makeup done, and Julianne was just so excited…and even nervous! It just goes to show that even though we in this industry do this for a living, it doesn’t make it any less special or emotional when it’s OUR turn. <3 When she got her dress on, our jaws just dropped. She is such a beautiful person inside and out, and that dress just accentuated her natural beauty and was so incredibly stunning. We went over to the hall before the ceremony started to grab some pictures of the decor, and Bartz Viviano beat us there and were setting up the ridiculously gorgeous florals. It was so magical seeing Julianne’s vision come to life.
We arrived at the GORGEOUS St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and we were ready for the ceremony. And so was everyone else. This moment had been years and years in the making, and when Tim saw his gorgeous bride walking to him his face said it all. Wait until you see! So much joy and peace all in one moment. It was truly perfect! Father Bill officiated a wonderful ceremony, and then it was time for pictures! Never in our lives have we ever had a bride AND groom ask us, “Can we please get more pictures?” Oh friends, that is music to our ears! We were so excited to go to the gorgeous Toledo museum of art, and even head to the bridge downtown…which replicated their engagement pictures we did in front of a similar bridge in Cleveland! How special is that!!?!
When they arrived at the reception, it was time to PARTY! But not before Julianne’s dad, sister, and Tim’s brother gave the most wonderful speeches. And then when the special dances started, they were having so much fun and some real heartfelt moments. This entire day truly was the perfect balance between love, fun, emotion, and beauty. We are SO excited for you two Tim & Julianne…and we hope you’re having a blast in Miami! We hope you love this little preview, and we can’t wait to show you the rest!!!
