What happens when a wedding planner gets to plan her own wedding? Monica Gaddis had already established herself at Viva Bella Events when she got engaged to her future husband Brandon and started comparing color swatches, sampling cake, and trying on gowns. Monica + Brandon's romantic winter wedding at Cincinnati's Rhinegeist brewery was a gorgeous mix of deep berry reds, tropical and soft pinks, milky white and lots of fresh greenery. Garlands, chandeliers, and the warm glow of hundreds of strung lights softened the industrial rawness of the brewery.
Monica + Brandon exchanged vows in a ceremony in the round. The space was a perfect juxtaposition of softness and time worn edginess with a wall of sheer draping suspended like a waterfall in a room whose brick walls were mortared by men who lived over a century ago.
For the reception the draping was transformed from a solid wall into several elegant tie backs that added an inviting and romantic ambiance to the room, catching and reflecting the various types of lighting. We are honored to have been a part of Monica and Brandon's gorgeous day!
