For all white modern wedding elegance look no further than Chase and Danielle’s dream day at the newly renovated downtown Westin Hotel in Cleveland with wedding planner Hannah Wong of Kirkbrides and photographer Genevieve Nisly Photography. Their luxurious white wedding day glowed under dim lighting, thousands of candles and a love story that began with Facebook messaging.
Chase’s brother first introduced him to Danielle in 2011 and they would continue to see each other from time to time, but nothing came of it until Chase created a Facebook account months later. They spent days messaging each other and he finally asked her out on their first date. Nearly three years later, Chase was on bended knee on his birthday, a day she would least expect.
Their wedding was nothing short of luxurious. Danielle wore a Lazaro Bridal ball gown fitting her modern day princess dream. Her ten bridesmaids wore white Bill Levkoff dresses that rounded out a classic bridal party. She wanted something different and not the typical décor she had seen time and again. Her vision was one of white, modern with an over the top romantic ambience. Her walk down the aisle was lit with thousands of candles and dramatic layers of glass and dim lighting by Rock the House making the large ceremony space more intimate. A Lucite chuppah, unique to the Cleveland wedding scene, was created and adorned with amazing floral arrangements by Neil Leeson. Danielle being Jewish and Chase a Methodist it was important to the couple that the ceremony reflect their personalities and love rather than their religion. They were married by a Rabi and wrote their own vows that perfectly complimented the intimate setting.
For the reception, the all white dance floor was the major focal point and of utmost importance to Danielle. Crystal chiavari chairs and a mixture of square, round and rectangle tables were placed around the room for their guests. Two sets of linens created the foundation for her tablescape using a white damask print and silver diamond geometric pattern to catch the light. Neil Leeson created jaw-dropping centerpieces in all white floral dripping in crystals to reflect the beauty of the room and for added sparkle. Danielle knew she wanted something sleek and big for her cake. She and Chase enlisted Luna Bakery Cafe who created a multi-tier beauty with each layer being a different flavor that tasted even better than it looked.
White, modern and glamour is how Danielle envisioned her dream day and her talented wedding team brought this day to a magical reality.
