Kelly shares the story of her and David’s classically beautiful wedding in Ohio–plus, the surprise engagement video that couldn’t be more adorable.

Our location: Cleveland City Hall Rotunda, Ohio. I visited City Hall when my sister was looking at wedding venues a few years ago, and I completely fell in love with it. The high ceilings and open layout are so grand and elegant, and all the intricate gold details give the room a beautiful look that is perfect for a wedding.

Trying on Wedding Dresses with Bride-to-Be Hannah and Smart Advice from Our Suite Stylist

We had the extreme privilege of being flies on the wall at real-life, bride-to-be Hannah Schultz’s appointment at our Wedding Suite. Not every woman would let a crew of people (not to mention a camera!) into a private dressing area, but Hannah was as gracious as she was convivial. Though she’s a wedding planner herself and old hat at attending wedding dress appointments, we were still honored that she agreed to let us document and share her personal Wedding Suite experience.

Joined by her family, Hannah spent a few hours trying on a handful of beautiful wedding gowns—along with the help of wedding stylist Rachael Sanchez—in search of “the one” to wear to her fall 2017 wedding. Read on for more about Hannah, some sage stylist intel on gown shopping and lots of gorgeous dresses.

Amanda & Sean | Real Weddings

Amanda shares her and Sean’s classic Cleveland wedding, with pretty DIY touches and lots of dancing.

Our location: The Tudor Arms Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio. We chose this space for several reasons, but the main ones were the size (we had a large wedding) and how gorgeous the venue is. The ballroom, where we served dinner, is absolutely beautiful—you barely even need decorations! We had cocktails, dinner and dancing in three separate rooms, and everything flowed perfectly! The whole floor of the hotel was ours for the night, and we got so many compliments from people who thought it was unique and fun going from one room to the next throughout the evening—it kept things interesting!
