Real Wedding: Maria and Jim's Backyard Tent Wedding

An elegant, black-tie wedding reception in your own backyard is a dream scenario, but it takes a lot of planning to pull it off. Luckily for Maria and Jim, they solicited the help of Cleveland wedding planners Kirkbrides to host their reception at Maria's family home, and the result really does look like a dream come true. Inside the tent, guests were treated to stunning floral centerpieces literally dripping with candles and an amazing four-tier cake covered in flowers... even if Maria and Jim didn't quite get around to doing the cake cutting! Instead they started a new family tradition of pouring champagne into family-style champagne risotto, right on the dance floor during dinner, with the help of renowned Cleveland chef Dante Bocuzzi -- what an amazing new tradition!
