We love when brides take inspiration from their venue... and it's not hard when your reception is held at the Hyatt Regency at The Arcade, one of the most beautiful locations in downtown Cleveland. This vintage-modern affair planned by Kirkbrides and photographed by Hunter Photographic was inspired by the bride's love of this historic building, and it was definitely a lovely tribute!
From the bride:
The "Old Arcade" has always been one of my favorite gems of downtown Cleveland. For as long as I can remember, I have been in awe of the architecture of the building and subsequently, its grandeur was our greatest inspiration. With the help of Valarie Falvey from Kirkbrides, the design evolved into the combination of modern elements and vintage decor. With the main goal of complementing the Arcade as much as possible, the whole wedding day design fell into place around it.
One of my favorite memories of the day was when our friends and family surround us in a circle to sing along to "Sweet Caroline" while we danced in the middle. It was the last song of the reception and a heartwarming moment. Afterwards, everyone walked across the street to bowl at The Corner Alley on E. 4th because we couldn't stop the best party of our life!
