Kim + Mo's Multicultural Downtown Toledo Wedding
To meet Kim + Mo is to LOVE Kim + Mo. While living in Philly, the couple planned their wedding day to be amongst family and friends in Toledo, Ohio (where they are originally from). They met in high school working at Moe’s family restaurant. After years of friendship and attempting to “keep it professional” in the workplace, Kim + Moe finally made it official and the rest is history!
To accommodate both cultures, Kim + Mo had an islamic ceremony on Friday and then an American Ceremony + Reception on Saturday. They perfectly and beautifully infused both cultures and religions to celebrate their love in such a joyful way. There were influences of Mo’s background, through family, friends, music, dancing, and of course, Baklava!! These details infused with the love and support of both families, made the day all the more special!
Downtown Toledo provided the perfect aesthetic for this fun-loving, laid back, couple! The Blarney Event Center is this red-brick, warehouse in the heart of downtown that has a raw/blank canvas vibe. Mager Designs skillfully encapsulated Kim + Mo’s vision with sleek and seamless decor.
The best part of having a Downtown Toledo wedding is all the opportunities for photos out and about the city. We walked from the Renaissance Hotel (where they got ready) to the Blarney Event Center and took photos along the way for an intimate and relaxed photo session amongst the tall buildings. And of course, Kim + Moe were making each other laugh the entire way.
It truly was an honor to be apart of this special day. We left feeling such a great sense of community and love!
