This was my first time for an Olney Gallery wedding and I loved the space. It’s perfect for weddings under 50 people and in
a great location in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland. It was decorated beautifully for a winter wonderland themed wedding.
Courtney: “As soon as we entered the Olney Gallery, we knew it would be a beautiful place to have our reception. It fit our
small intimate wedding desires, had invaluable designs and a great feeling about it.
“It was so helpful that Cathy Figas from “Cathryne’s Creative Details” was an all inclusive reception service for the gallery.
It really helped me worry less knowing that she was there and she was very knowledgeable. She also really supported me on the
The Olney Art Gallery opened in 1893 and became the city’s first publicly accessible art space. It pre-dated the Cleveland
Museum of Art by more than two decades.
The ceremony was at St. Stephen’s Church which is one of the most beautiful Catholic churches in the city. I always love
photographing there and they are so nice.
Courtney: “Victor has a history at St.Stephen’s church and when we visited the church I felt an overwhelming sense of peace
After the ceremony we stopped by Phoenix Coffee on the near west side of Cleveland.
“Victor and I had our first kiss at Phoenix Coffee in Cleveland. It was really special and super cool that we had the
opportunity to recreate our first kiss in the same exact spot on our wedding night.”
We then took photos on Public Square and it was packed with people enjoying the Christmas lights.
“We invited the people closest in our lives. My best friends were by my side and really enjoyed themselves. I loved that
we could be ourselves, relax and have fun.”
Brooke did Courtney’s hair.
Erica did her makeup.
Mother Debra and bridesmaid Hannah and maid of honor Paige helped with the dress.
Best man Michael checked out Victor before the ceremony.
Victor’s parents Victor and Donna walked him down the aisle.
Father of the bride Charles walked the bride down the aisle.
Father Koka led the ceremony.
The couple kissed at the exact spot of their first kiss.
Victor: “Wes and Heather of Wanderlust Jewelry helped us with the design and the creation of our perfect wedding bands and
engagement ring along with an extra special wedding present for Courtney. Being able to physically make each other’s bands from
flat bars of gold to a rough finish, was an experience that will stay with us for our lifetime. These beautiful, unique, and
handcrafted rings have become our most treasured physical items.”
Courtney’s grandfather Sandford got down on the dance floor while his companion Jan held his hat.
Dalebria caught the bouquet.
