September Wedding at Cherry Basket Farm

Last week Maddy and Chris's wedding was featured on Artfully Wed! We were thrilled to pack our bags and head off to Northport, Michigan for Maddy and Chris' wedding at Cherry Basket Farm! Cherry Basket Farm is a restored 120-year-old farm located just north of the historic village of Omena in Leelanau County, Michigan. This rustic venue is surrounded by hardwoods, cherry orchards, and farmland.

Maddy and Chris' wedding ceremony, which was designed and coordinated by Oak & Honey Events, took place on the upper level of the venue's two-story, timber-framed barn, while cocktail hour took place downstairs, and dinner under the tent. Their guests then headed up upstairs to join the couple for dancing and desserts!

The venue's rustic vibe paired well with the couple's bohemian style. Elbowgrease Design provided gorgeous macrame chandeliers for the event, in addition to an ombre macrame escort sign by Baci Designer. The color palette consisted of blush, marsala, sand, and espresso, in addition to the greenery that was incorporated throughout the design. These photos from Maiko Media perfectly captured the beauty of this event!

September Wedding at the Inn at Honey Run

We are thrilled to be able to share Crystal and Jeff's wedding after being featured on Bridal Musing! The Oak & Honey Events team was thrilled to head back out to Millersburg, Ohio for Crystal and Jeff's wedding at the Inn at Honey Run last September! The couple rented out the whole property, utilizing The Grove for their ceremony, the Treetop Pavilion for cocktail hour and dancing, and the Tarragon Room for dinner. Their design concept was completely unique, featuring romantic details with lots of copper accents and pops of marsala. This palette was complemented by shades of blush, eucalyptus, as well as soft peach.

In addition to the greenery in the decor, there were also a handful of green aspects throughout the wedding. Fair Rarity Flowers sourced all the flowers provided locally, which were then donated to a local assisted living facility after the wedding. The Inn at Honey Run's Tarragon menu also features many local ingredients from area farmers.

We just can't get enough of these beautiful photos captured by Suzuran Photography!

October Wedding at Club Walden

Beth and Justin couldn't have picked a more perfect fall day to celebrate the biggest day of their lives! The scenery of the day pair perfectly with their color palette of sage green, wine, navy, gray, pale blush, and gold. Oak & Honey Events helped bring the couples' vision to life, creating a soft and organic vibe with the decor mixed with a few modern touches. Beth and Justin held their ceremony at the Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus, then celebrated with their family and friends at the place where it all started - Club Walden, where they first met!

October Wedding at Crown Point Ecology Center

Amy and Mike's wedding took place at Crown Point Ecology Center in Bath, Ohio. Their ceremony was held outside on the lawn, just past the venue's historic barn. The couple said their "I do's" in front of a rustic wooden arbor, adorned with single-stemmed flowers inside assorted glass bottles. Their color palette boasted shades of fall, including burnt orange, sand, goldenrod, and navy. Oak & Honey Events assisted with the design and coordination of the event. Amy and Mike also chose to include a handful of accents from Germany, where they currently live, including German Schnapps and German chocolate for their guests to enjoy! After dancing the night away, guests headed outside to enjoy a surprise, late-night snack from Swensons!

Summer K Photography was on site to capture every beautiful moment from the day, and also got some great shots of the flowers provided by Branch and Bloom, which were all locally sourced.hoffmann-colorsamymike015amymike016amymike003amymike035amymike036amymike022amymike042amymike023amymike045amymike026amymike028amymike029amymike041amymike011amymike030vision-board

August Wedding at the Inn at Honey Run

Bethany & Robert's wedding was the first of two this season that took place at the Inn at Honey Run! The Inn at Honey Run is a boutique hotel in Ohio's Amish Country, with an upscale, yet comfortable atmosphere. This peaceful, woodland venue is set among 50 acres of forest and meadows. Bethany & Robert's ceremony took place outside, on the venue's Treetop Pavilion. Follow the ceremony, guests moved to the Tarragon Room for cocktail hour and dinner, then dancing and desserts followed back on the Treetop Pavilion, where the couple danced the night away with all of their guests!

Oak & Honey Events designed and coordinated the couple's wedding, making sure to add unique touches to showcase their quirky, steampunk style. The color palette consisted of gray, sage green, and shades of plum. Bethany & Robert also wanted to incorporate eco-friendly aspects in their wedding, which our team was happy to help coordinate! These aspects included using potted succulents for escort cards that can be re-used, locally sourced flowers, and favors that were locally made  (jam from The Runcible Spoon, which is owned by the bride's brother, as well as honey). Their flowers were also donated to a local nursing home.

Melanie’s Picks

Lauren HB Studio

All of Lauren Studio’s products are handmade in Lakewood, Ohio. Lauren's products are inspired by her contemporary art upbringing and influenced by abstract geometric forms. I love the sleek, contemporary design but functional use. I've been swooning over their geometric diamond dish - a perfect addition to anyone's home.

Jessica N Designs

Jessica N Design products are hand stamped goodness made in Ohio. They offer a number of fun designs perfect for any occasion but you should have no trouble finding a gift for your hostess. I recommend spreaders with hand stamped sayings like," spread joy", "spread love", and "spread cheer," is the perfect holiday hostess gift. Cute and ready to use at any holiday get-together.

1820 House Candles

My current obsession is 1820 House Candles. The candles are hand poured based out of East Palestine, Ohio. Their candles focus on aromachology which is a "basic awareness of how a certain fragrance evokes feelings of peace, happiness, bliss, relaxation or bring up memories of something familiar or comforting." Pick-up a candle from their holiday collection your hostess is bound to love.

Pope’s Kitchen

Popes Kitchen offers fresh, locally sourced ingredients in all their products. They have a number of delicious cocktail mixes and bar products to spice-up any drink at your next holiday party. Some of my favorites are the Mellow Bloody Mary Mix, Strawberry Balsamic Sauce, or the Hot Sauce Gift Pack. The Mellow Bloody Mary Mix is perfect for News Years morning!

Sage and Spice Botanicals

Sage and Spice Botanicals is a small botanical company based in Cleveland, Ohio. They offer many artisan herbal products made with organic and fair trade botanicals. Sage and Spice has some great tea blends that are perfect for the friend that does not drink coffee. One of my favorites is the Sunset blend.

Willey Creek Spoon & Utensil

Willey Creek Spoon and Utensil utilizes traditional greenwood carving techniques to make wooden spoons and various other kitchen utensils. I chatted with Bill, the owner, at the Crafty Mart in Akron, and he shared with me that many of the items he makes use fallen down wood in his backyard. The spoons would be a great addition to tie on to a jar of Pope’s Kitchen’s Strawberry Balsamic sauce.

August Wedding at Happy Days Lodge

Tiffany and David's colorful, farm-to-table style wedding took place on a sunny day in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park at Happy Days Lodge. Oak & Honey Events worked with the couple to design and coordinate their wedding, while also helping to implement all the unique touches they wanted to include in their big day. Their color scheme consisted of many refreshingly bright colors, including purple, tangerine, forest green, and shades of pink.

All of the food provided by Driftwood Catering was locally sourced, and all of the flowers used for the decor and bouquets were in season. The glass candle holder favors were hand-made by the groom himself, in addition to the decorative cracked glass bulbs adorning the guest tables.

Full Bloom Photography did a wonderful job of capturing the unique decor and the overall vibe of the day!

Thursday Therapy - October 27, 2016

Our Thursday Therapy Boo Bash at AAble Rents was hands down one of the best Thursday Therapy events to date! AAble Rents, along with Solus Lighting and Branch and Bloom, went above and beyond to create a gorgeously spooky atmosphere for the party! We had so much fun mixing and mingling with all of the costumed wedding pros that attended! The food provided by Taproot Catering was delicious, as always, and Michaelangelo's Photography did a fabulous job of showcasing the food and decor!


If you haven't attended a Thursday Therapy event yet, or even if you've attended all of our events to date, be sure to check out our next Thursday Therapy at Vosh in Lakewood on December 1st!

July Wedding at Barrington Golf Club

Caitlin and Trevor's wedding took place on a cool, rainy day at Church of the Holy Angels in Chagrin Falls. Once the ceremony concluded, their guests headed over to the Barrington Golf Club for the reception. Oak & Honey Events planned and coordinated the wedding, and also created the design as well. The design was very clean and crisp, with lots of light and airy details. The color palette was a mix of navy, blush, gold, and dusty shades of pink and blue. Fair Rarity Flowers sourced the flowers locally, and after the wedding, the Oak & Honey Events team donated them to Southern Hills Health & Rehabilitation Center in Middleburg Heights. We also worked with an awesome photography team, Love Stories by Halie + Alec, who came into town from Georgia just to photograph Caitlin and Trevor's big day!

Back in 2013, our friend Amanda with Baci Designer founded Handpicked | A Bridal Event.
