Elizabeth Glorioso Photography was the photographer for Elisa’s Medieval Masquerade theme.
The service took place at the Fairmount Temple, Beachwood, Ohio. Then it was onto The Ballroom at Park Lane Villa, in Cleveland, Ohio, where guests were transported back in time. Family, friends and performers were all in medieval costumes and everyone got into the spirit of the theme.
“Hear Ye Hear Ye” let the festivities begin.

The beautiful head covering is from the temple gift shop
Elisa is wearing a crown that was purchased from an antique shop for either her 6th or 7th birthday. Who knew it would come in handy again when she turned 13 years old?
Guests were greeted by Knights from Party 411
Mom Nancy Schwartz-Katz is a illustrator/fine artist and created the logo and the signage. Crests hung from above each with a special meaning to the family.
What a presentation!! Guests enjoyed the royal feast dining on banquet tables
