Real Wedding: Sarah and Kirk's Great Gatsby Wedding at The Glidden House in Cleveland

Sarah and Kirk's Great Gatsby-style wedding was inspired by the architecture of the historic Glidden House, where they held their reception. The boutique hotel was originally built in 1910 to be the home of the son of the founder of Glidden Paint Co., and was one of the most lavish homes in the area. Now it's the perfect location for a timeless, classic wedding like Sarah and Kirk's. The two met as teenagers when they both had a summer job at Giant Eagle, the summer before Sarah went away to college. After dating long-distance for a year, Sarah transferred colleges to live closer to him... And the rest is history!

Sarah said, "One of my favorite memories from the wedding was after we were done doing photos we had an hour before the cocktail hour started so we went to Townhall to relax. It was a great break from the crazy day!! …We were able to sit back, relax and just talk as a bridal party!" What a fun memory!
