I don’t know what I love more about Casey and John’s wedding. From the bride’s gorgeous wedding dress to the wedding venue, flowers or even the unexpected design elements (that cake tablecloth is PERFECT and so unexpected)…there are so many parts of this real wedding that we simply adore. But the best part is they all work in tandem with one another and the result is beautiful and completely romantic.
Captured so gorgeously by Mann & Wife Photography, Casey and John’s wedding was held at the historic Arcade in downtown Cleveland. More from their photographer on the venue and the evening!
“The Arcade Cleveland opened in May of 1890 as the first indoor shopping center in America. It quickly became one of downtown Cleveland’s most popular landmarks, and was nicknamed Cleveland’s Crystal Palace. Over time, the Arcade Cleveland began to deteriorate, until developers Related Midwest and Hyatt Development Corporation completed a $60 million renovation in May of 2001, and the Arcade never looked better. It is now used for weddings every weekend, all year round! It is not unusual to see hotel guests peering over the high balconies to sneak a peek of the beautiful bride walking down the aisle to her new soon to be husband! It is truly a romantic venue!
It won’t take long to notice the beauty that surrounded Casey and John’s amazing wedding. The greenery and farm tables used inside the Hyatt was a fabulous detail that brought the space to life. I simply couldn’t get enough! Our romantic ceremony went right into our gorgeous reception with just the right sized group for a fun and intimate affair. I had goose bumps when I found out the number of the store their sweetheart table was in front of was also the football number of John’s beloved grandfather who is no longer with us. I had such a special time talking with his grandmother and learning this sweet story that was discovered that evening when she saw the number above the table.”
Awwww. How sweet is that?! See a few of our favorite pics from Casey and John’s wedding, below!
