-Favorite memories from the bride, Megan:
*We love Cleveland sports, especially the Indians, and our favorite part of baseball games is the infamous "hot dog" race with ketchup, mustard, and onion -- the bride always roots for mustard and the groom loves onion. At first we jokingly said we should have them at our wedding, but on a whim I reached out to the Indians to see if they did events. I didn't hear back for a long time so I completely forgot about it but then they responded with so much enthusiasm my husband booked all 3 hot dog mascots to come to the reception for an hour and man was it a HIT! I think the adults enjoyed it more than the kids to be honest. Very random but hilarious and fun!
*Photo spots: We took photos at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and although it was a very humid 90 degrees, I absolutely loved how unique they turned out to be, especially in the butterfly garden. We also made a pit stop in between photos at Collision Bend Brewing which ended up being a really fun way for the bridal party to have a drink and celebrate together before the reception, and since it is on the water we got some great spontaneous photos as well!
*My mother-in-law surprised me with a horseshoe charm that she had worn on her wedding dress for good luck -- my aunt sewed it on right before the ceremony and it was just such a special touch to have with me all day!
