Congratulations Susanne and Matthew


I first met Susanne at her brother’s wedding in 2007. Her family was so wonderful, so I was excited that she called us for her wedding. Susanne is a chef and she actually made her brother’s cake. She is a fellow artist and I have been really looking forward to her wedding for a long time. Long ago she dubbed herself my “non bride, bride” because she wanted things to be relaxed and do things a bit differently. Who else would want vegetables in her wedding decor? Kevin Ford did a great job incorporating her ideas and making the most creative arrangement ever. He used things like the flowering part of an onion in his unique design. Due to the rain we did many photos in the beautiful Cincinnati Club where the receptions was going to follow. I loved how her dress had such a vintage feel that it fit perfectly with the look of the building. The ceremony at St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica was beautiful. One of my favorite moments was watching Susanne and her mother present the gifts while Ave Maria was being sung. After the ceremony we took a few more photos and than went to the reception. Goodwin Lighting did a wonderful job lighting the reception and it looked amazing when we walked in. The cake was very fun and whimsical; Barb from Incredible Endings really did a great job. Another favorite moment was watching Susanne and Matthew dance together. They just were really enjoying themselves and it looked like they couldn’t be any happier. Overall it was a wonderful day with their fun family and friends. The day went very smoothly thanks to Elisa and her team from Elegant Events by Elisa. The couple could really enjoy the day thanks to their help. A special thanks to all of the awesome vendors for all of their incredible talents to make the day so amazing. Susanne and Matthew – thanks for being such a fun and wonderful couple to work with. You two are truly the best and we really enjoyed getting to know you more throughout the wedding process.
