Real Wedding: Mari and Will's Cleveland Wedding

We have to admit we don't see a lot of weddings that are planned largely by the groom, and we love it! This Cleveland wedding is so pretty and sweet and full of the loveliest details.

From the bride, Mari: Will and I met in a downtown Cleveland bar immediately after a (very rare) Browns win. He asked me to marry him in the same location a few years later. Many people who know us will be surprised to learn that when it came to the wedding planning, Will covered most of it (and enjoyed it). A huge relief for this bride! We are so grateful for our wonderful vendors and couldn't have been happier with how the wedding turned out.
