Ceremony Real Bride // Kathryn O.

Kathryn fell in love with her stunning Sarah Janks silk slip gown in part for the way the material would glisten against the grass and water in her parent's backyard (a backyard conveniently perched on the edge of Lake Erie).  Well, her vision was spot-on.  The overall effect was romantic, moody and glamorous.  Add to this equation a soul band, a laid-back barbecue dinner, twin pugs decked in flower crowns and a surprise Jimi Hendrix serenade by the bride's father, and you have the perfect combination of an intimate family gathering and exquisitely elegant celebration. 

Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted,
They quietly understand
Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
But wonder why the fight is on
But they’re all bold as love, yeah, they’re all bold as love.
— Jimi Hendrix
