An InterContinental Cleveland wedding is always such an elegant wedding. What was different about this one was all the personal and fun touches Kara and Drew had planned for their day. From the beginning, starting with their engagement session, they wanted to incorporate their love for Cleveland sports! So this wedding was a beautiful mix of an elegant & fun couple, with sporty well-thought out details. As I’ve said before, we love a couple that can incorporate their style and interest into their wedding theme!
Kara and Drew both had their wedding day preparations at the hotel. The beautiful rooms available there make wedding day prep convenient and beautiful! From the InterContinental Hotel we headed to St. Stanislaus Church for the wedding ceremony. This beautiful old cathedral in Cleveland makes for a dramatic walk down the aisle!
When Drew and Kara were thinking about wedding day photography locations, Progressive Field for wedding pictures was their top pick. Also incorporating Cleveland views and a pretty location to round it all out! After our first stop around Progressive Field, we just loved how Kara took her shoes off and her and Drew walked along the sidewalk enjoying all the well-wishers honking and waving!! I suggest this for all our upcoming weddings! Just kidding, but it was so fun and cute! Then we drove around to the other side for more sport pictures and then off to the Cleveland Museum of Art for a “softer look” (my words) to the pictures.
Then after an afternoon of running around the city for pictures, we were back at the hotel for the much anticipated reception. Walking into the InterContinental Hotel’s ballroom was amazing! The gorgeous, interactive, lighting by Selective Sound and the full florals by Plantscaping & Blooms were just amazing! The room was transformed and really set the tone for a great evening! From the beginning Drew and Kara had such fabulous ideas for the reception and especially their entrance, from the Cleveland Indian’s announcer to team mascots, but due to all the Covid restrictions, so many of their plans had to change, but being at the wedding, you would never know anything was missing! It was a beautiful day full of love, fun and lots of personal fun moments! We so were happy to share in this day with Kara and Drew and loved capturing their crazy and fun personalities! Congratulations to Kara and Drew!
