Classic Black Tie Wedding in Cleveland

I love a classic wedding! Throw in gorgeous photos, a breathtaking cathedral, and a beautiful bride in a cathedral length mantilla veil, and you’ve made my day. I’m pretty sure Real Bride Olivia's wedding will make your day too! Her classic black tie wedding in Cleveland is absolutely timeless and elegant! When I met with Olivia, she knew she wanted a cathedral length lace veil but was unsure which one would best compliment her fitted beaded dress. It was such a pleasure helping her try on different styles. Ultimately, she said yes to the Maria champagne veil and I'm so glad she did! The flower appliques down the back added a unique touch to her bridal look and she received...

A Fall Wedding in Cleveland

I am thrilled to be able to share this next wedding with you! Until now, brides featured in the Real Brides section have been brides that I've connected with online but today's bride is from the Cleveland area and I was able to assist her in person! When I met with the gorgeous bride, she knew exactly what type of veil she wanted. A mantilla style, no blusher veil with embellishments to compliment the stunning bodice on her gown. She opted for the Fernanda Mantilla Veil and I think the result was spectacular! Below are pictures of her beautiful cathedral ceremony. Of course, no fall wedding in Cleveland is complete without a portrait session in the metro parks, so I...

A bridal boudoir session with your photographer is the perfect way to get more use out of your wedding veil.
