A Miami Merger

"When two hearts beat as one and both attended Miami, it's a Miami Merger."

Amber and Michael are a classic Miami Merger. Legend has it that two students who kiss under the lantern of the Upham Arch at Miami University at Midnight are destined to be married.

Their destined wedding was last November in Cincinnati, Ohio. Amber incorporated the historic lantern into the theme of their wedding. She and her mother, Mary, chose a silhouette of the lantern for the invitations, ceremony program, escort cards and with the popcorn favors for the guests. It was all done with just the right touch!

Below is Amber, pictured with her mother, getting ready for the big day!

Sam Hills, hair stylist extraordinaire of the High Five Salon, was on hand to make sure Amber looked her best. Amber's make up was done by Brideface.

Pictured below is Amber enjoying a moment with her bridesmaids.

I've mentioned before that I love, love, love Amber's dress. It is a Romona Keveza and made our favorites list this year. It was unique yet simply elegant.

Amber and Michael were married at the historic Plum Street Temple in downtown Cincinnati. If you have ever been there, you know it is absolutely stunning inside. Leppert Photography did an awesome job capturing the beauty of the Temple.

The couple had a a custom Ketubah created by Julie Staller-Pentelnik of JSP Judaic Art. Just one of many personal touches that made their day so special!

The reception was held at the Hall of Mirrors in the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Another spectacular, historic location! The fall colored flowers (Sprouts Floral Design) and lighting (Goodwin) brought the room to life.

The cake (Dessert Works) was delicious as was beautiful!

This couple knew how to have fun. I think the Hora (a traditional Jewish dance of celebration) went on for 45 minutes!

It's always nice to see the bride and groom (and their families) happy at the end of their special day. It makes all the planning, fun, and stress worth it when the day goes exactly as planned. I wish Amber and Michael a wonderful life together!

Below is a highlight of their day produced by Lifetime Films.

I saw this dress on "Say Yes to the Dress!" It IS beautiful.

I also haven't thought about the Upham arch for a long time!
