Alisha came in for the first time and when she mentioned she was all about bling, I knew we were going to click! Check out her gorgeous dress!  I love that she chose shades of purple and fuchsia for her colors. They just popped!

Of course it was the first hot day of the year and this poor bridal party was super tough making sure they had the perfect pictures! We’re so excited to see the pictures from Grand Lubell Photography! The backdrop of the Toledo Zoo in June will be perfect!

Alisha's bouquet includes lavender roses, park purple carnations, lavender stock, and lavender lisianthus.

The bridesmaids bouquets consisted of orchids- a perfect mini version of the brides!

Unfortunately due to the space allowed we couldn't have the alter arrangements outside, however we found a perfect place for them in the reception hall! The tall vase held silver branches , crystals, hydrangea, and purple and fuschia dendros.

What a gorgeous wow! Silver branches with hanging crystal votives were designed in a tall vase with shades of purple flowers.

The Toledo Zoo was the perfect backdrop for her purple pops of color! The tall and short centerpieces gave the room so much depth and color!

The head table arrangement was by far our favorite piece! Tall vases balanced a mirror between them with crystal balls, orchids, silver branches, hydrangea, and lighting.

I loved Ashley right from the beginning! Our love of bling was what made us click and I was so excited for her wedding! As I began to load everything up to drive to Schedel Gardens in Elmore, OH, I noticed a big giant  storm following me! I called over to Schedel Gardens to figure out the backup plan. They said the storm is going to pass and the wedding will go on outside, after the storm.

I arrived at the gardens and finished unloading everything just in time for it to start pouring! Of course, that was about the time the bride and her bridal party showed up. The ladies at Schedel were totally prepared and zipped the girls down to the cottage to get ready. Then after the rain stopped they had a huge crew ready to dry off chairs and they actually moved all of the chairs to a higher location since the one planned was a mess. I hope the guests were prepared for an outdoor wedding. I couldn’t believe how cool and collected Ashley and Josh were!
