shamika + carl: married

So I did a brief preview of this wedding a month or so ago. Now, check out some professional pics by Terry Goodman of Northeast Ohio's Platinum Photography. Highlights of this wedding:
1. the time of day: beautiful, brunch-time outdoor ceremony. know me and know I live for brunch! and weddings at this time of day are super savvy when it comes to saving $$
2. the 'sparklie' backdrop for the ceremony
3. the bride's super stylish cake by michael angelo's bakery and chocolatier (yes yes yes a cake can be stylish!)
note: i love how this bakery does not charge by the slice and has flat fees for their cakes based on how many a given style will feed. and prices are incredibly reasonable for the quality. plus, they do strawberry cassatta and a host of other desserts, so.....yeah! see their 2009 catalog here.
4. the entertainment: guests had three different experiences: a harpist that was perfectly-suited for the ceremony; a pianist for the mimosa-hour; and a dj for brunch and dancing:)

venue: hilton garden inn, twinsburg
photography: platinum photography, terry goodman
pianist: judy ann kamen
harpist: debbie beck
officiant: elegant events by antoinette
cake: michael angelos bakery
dj: al wynn
decor consultation + day of coordination: savvy

Loved the crystal curtain & the details that tied in with the time of the wedding. Simply gorgeous.

Oh, I love the motif of the wedding. It's very unique. And so is that cake... it's square! So cute! :)
