Dark Winter Wedding at the Cleveland Arcade | M + J

Mia and John dark Christmas wedding day was sweet, dreamy, and so much fun…

Mia and John’s elegant, dark and intense winter wedding day at the Cleveland Arcade was perfect in so many ways. We started and ended the day at the Arcade with just a few minutes spent outside at East 4th Street and from start to finish, everything was just right. Mia opted for a first look with her dad and then a first look with John – both of which were highly emotional – filled with love, laughter, and tears! The gifts that Mia and John exchanged were so heartfelt and moving that it was hard not to get emotional just watching them open them (his gift to her was a jar filled with pieces of paper with reasons why he loves her on them and her gift to him was a large picture with the words to their first song on it). They both loved their gifts!

The ceremony was quick and sweet and the reception was full of family love, friends reminiscing, and one hell of a dance floor. This group got down and everyone had such a great time. Mia even changed into a party gown at the end of the night and this new dress stunning on her. Nothing could have made this wedding day any better. The darkness that the winter provided allowed for this downtown arcade wedding to be just moody enough to pull off the exact feel Mia & John had in mind. It was a dream.
