Neha's Inspiration Board

Neha is a bride I have been working with for a few months now. She is getting married next April but just moved to Texas last month, so we had a lot of work to do before she left. One of the things she has asked me to help her with is the design of the ceremony and reception. The entire wedding will be at the breathtaking Drees Pavilion so we won't have to do a lot, but she still wanted to make sure to add her own personal touch to the space.

Her ceremony will be a traditional Hindu ceremony so she wanted to keep with the traditional colors of reds and golds, but with a little bit of a modern twist. Below you will find the inspiration board I brought with us to our design meeting

Vendor Spotlight - The Cincinnati Club

I love Memorial Day Weekend - there is just something special in the air during this unofficial start of summer. This year was no different at Catherine and Jeremy's wedding. One of the things that made it so wonderful was their venue - The Cincinnati Club.

This was the first time I have ever worked with The Cincinnati Club and I hope to be bake there many times in the future. The Building is beautiful with a variety of rooms to choose from. Catherine and Jeremy were married in the Pompadour Room, Cocktails in the Grill and Reception in the Oak Room. The staff was wonderful to work with and the food was delicious!

In addition to being a great facility, it is in the perfect location. Garfield Park is right across the street and is a beautiful location to take pictures. Garfield Suites Hotel is just next door so that your guests do not need to worry about driving home. Fountain Square is just a few blocks away for any of your guests looking for some post-reception activities and the Covenant First Presbyterian Church is just down the street (one of my favorite ceremony locations).

The Cincinnati Club offers everything you would need for a beautiful downtown wedding!
