Alicia and Ryan shared a glamorous Ohio wedding that was classic and stunning. It was an elegant wedding day in August, enjoy this beautiful couple!
My husband grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and I visited for my first time at Christmas in 2012. I fell in love. It was th emost beautiful and magical place for me, and I was born and raise din South Africa! I loved the homes, the sense of family and community. I loved the lush green landscaping with the occasional deer running across the road. I had to get married here one day!Ryan and I got Married on the 1st of August of this year. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. All week it showed 50% chance of rain and in Ohio that really means 50/50 chance. However we lucked out on the most gorgeous day. The day didn’t go without its problems though. I was born in South Africa and my parents flew all the way out to Cleveland for the wedding. Wedding plans came tumbling down when my dad realized at the airport in Dubai that his American visa had expired just 2 days before my wedding! However, my prayers were answered 24hrs later as my dad received his new visa and jetted off to Cleveland for my wedding.My bridesmaids and I woke up bright and early at 8am to start prepping for the big day. Hair and makeup started promptly at 9am with mimosas to follow:) I gave all my ladies a monogrammed tote bag with a mini bottle of champagne, gold bracelet and personalized robes with their names on it, so they can definitely use it in the future again. During our prep we played all our favorite songs which mostly included Whitney Houston or Disney tunes, karaoke ensued during hair and makeup:) I also chose to gift the groomsmen, the dads and my then fiance with their own personalized monogrammed socks. I wrote them each a little card to thank them for being apart of my fiance’s and my wedding.Getting married to Ryan was the happiest day of my life. I have never seen my husband cry but there were tears in his eyes when I came down the isle which I couldn’t help but smile at. I was marrying my best friend who I had the privilege of spending the rest of my life with.I loved our traditional meets slightly Gatsby elegant wedding. I wish I could relive our wedding every day because I had the most amazing time. From walking down the isle to playing air guitar with my husband and guests, nothing could be more special than our magical day! – the Bride, Alicia
