LMJ Bridal Series:: Loretta + Patrick
Loretta and Patrick came in to design Loretta’s engagement ring last year, knowing they wanted something simple and everyday wearable, with sustainable and ethical values.
We landed on a sleek tapered rose gold band with a flush set moissanite.
They met on OkCupid just a few days before Loretta was set to move from Austin to Denver. They met over drinks to about acupuncture, Patrick’s career. Loretta said their greatest adventure so far was moving across country together in a Uhaul to start their life in Cleveland.
I was thrilled when they stopped in to have a ring designed for Patrick. And even more so when Loretta got back to me with what she wanted engraved inside…… “Forever Fuckface”
I died laughing! I love a good inside joke, a bit of humor and and the occasional profanity. Little did I know it would be so difficult to find a jeweler that would actually engrave a cuss word!
On her experience working with me, Loretta said,
I knew exactly what I wanted and no commercial store could really understand that I wanted a small diamond that didn't stick up at all so it was a relief when we found Liza and she totally got it. We were so happy to support a local artist who is making ethical jewelry AND had a cute studio kitty cat.
Here’s a list of the vendors they used for their wedding:
Neha Joshi of Ask Neha Now was our wedding planner. Ultra Missions Paddleboard Tours provided Sunday paddle board experience. Blackbird Bakery supplied sunday brunch pastries. We rented the Sycamore Picnic Pavilion from the Cleveland MetroParks. Mission BBQ in Parma catered our reception. Silver Fox florist in Westlake did a great job on our bouquets and boutonnières. We had a great time at the reception which was held at the w25th street Mitchell's Ice Cream party room on the second floor where we had an ice cream sundae bar for dessert instead of a cake. Parties To Go in Lorain supplied the audio equipment for our live musicians. Sportsplex delivered chairs and linens.
