Dana and Greg’s Gatsby-inspired winter wonderland wedding was a stunning wedding day full of amazing, heartfelt detail. From the ceremony programs which included personal thank you’s from the bride and groom, to the monogrammed ice bar, Dana and Greg didn’t miss a beat with all of the details designed for their guests to enjoy. The day began at the quaint St. Christopher’s by the River Church in Gates Mills. As the ceremony came to an end Dana, Greg, and their bridal party headed outside to the churches bridge for pictures. Jason Thomas Crocker Photography captured all of the fun moments and all of the details. Dana provided beautiful pashminas for the bridesmaids, and ear muffs and coats to some of the cutest flower girls I have ever seen!
After pictures, the fun continued at The Tudor Arms Hotel where cocktail hour began with the sounds of the Athena Strings Quartet. Guests enjoyed their choice of three signature cocktails created by the bride and groom, with beautiful signs to display the choices made by Dana and her sister. As guests worked their way into the dining ballroom, they grabbed a glass of bubbly which also included their escort card! Inside the Crystal Ballroom, stunning centerpieces made by Blooms by Plantscaping accompanied by gorgeous linens transformed the space into a white and gold Gatsby-inspired room. Rock The House created a romantic atmosphere with amber up-lighting and spot lighting on the show stopping head table centerpiece. Also on the tables were unique custom made menu cards that hung off of the table created by Sassyrae Expressions. In the ballroom was a crisp white three-tier cake made from Raised and Glazed Donuts and the best part was that it was a fun-fetti cake!
Once dinner wrapped up, Dana and Greg invited guests into the Tudor Room where the dance party kicked off. The Tudor Room was all about the party with Sound House getting the fun started and keeping the dance floor packed all night! In between dances, guests could grab a drink from the Ice Bar made by Elegant Ice. The options for guests just kept going with a dessert bar that included yummy mini desserts from Raised and Glazed Donuts and Corbo’s Bakery, a hot chocolate bar and late night food station provided by The Tudor Arms Hotel, and a lounge area to relax from Event Source.
