Convalidation video

4 January 2010

After getting married in Ohio, Jessica and I went to Illinois less than a month later to have our marriage blessed in the church. The ceremony we participated in is called a convalidation, and ours was held at St. Emily’s Chuch.
Family and friends came to see our blessing, and then came with us to celebrate the reception at the Wellington banquet hall.

    Jessica and I are very happy to be married, and we were glad that family and friends could be there at the Cleveland Botanical Garden to celebrate with us on September 6, 2009.

    The invitations

    If you’re one of our guests, you may have noticed the amazing bird artwork on the invitations. We would like to thank Eliza, a talented artist who is one of our friends here in the Cleveland area, for the design.

    Jessica and I went to the studio of our wedding photographer, Perfect Image Ltd., to have some engagement photos taken recently. It went well–here’s a proof shot of one of the images.

    What to do in Cleveland

    2 August 2009

    For our guests who are coming to the wedding from out of town, we want to provide a list of places around Cleveland where you can find entertainment, food, and whatever else you might want during your stay. So we’ve compiled a list of notable local places on this page.

    Our wedding registries

    2 August 2009

    For those planning to get us a wedding gift, Jessica and I have set up registries at Crate and Barrel, Macy’s, and Bed, Bath and Beyond. We have guests coming from lots of places so we wanted to register at multiple stores for maximum flexibility.
    We’ve set up a page on the wedding web site that has links to our online registries.

    Another possible wedding shoe from Christian Louboutin that I saw on eBay. Totally glam–I love them!

    Jessica and I are at the Panera on Tiedeman Road meeting with a prospective wedding photographer. Last Sunday we met in Trenont with a wedding cake baker.
    Getting married in Cleveland will be good I think because we get to meet with all the people that will be involved beforehand.
