Kristen and Mike are such a fun couple! Being with them at one of our favorite venues, The Club at Hillbrook, made for such a sweet, fun day. We met up with the bridesmaids and Kristen in the gorgeous and spacious parlor room where sweet friends and family gathered to do makeup and hair and enjoy being together. You could tell they just adored Kristen. When her hair was finished or her dress was put on for the first it was met by spontaneous awws, admiration, and tears by the bridesmaids. This is how it is meant to be!
We headed outside to the spacious wooded grounds for Mike’s first look. A fun surprise happened shortly after. Mike surprised Kristen by hiring artist Jacqueline DelBrocco to do a live event painting of the evening! He led her up to the reception area to find Jacqui with her canvas set up and a fun sign for them.
After some more photos and video we headed to the ceremony in a stately outdoor space. Kristen entered through wrought iron gates and Mike beamed. From there they enjoyed time visiting their guests for a cocktail hour on the stone-floored open air patio as the extremely talented Jacqueline DelBrocco captured the sight on her artist’s canvas.
Reception time soon came, but this was no ordinary reception! It included Mitchell’s Ice Cream (the best ice cream in Cleveland, in our humble opinion!) and a visit by a taco food truck! Finally, the night wrapped up with a sparkler exit out the front door.
Many, many fun blessings your way, Kristen and Mike!
