The Athletic Club of Columbus / Ellen + John

January 26th, 2018

St. Joseph Cathedral and The Athletic Club of Columbus perfectly set the tone for Ellen and John’s elegant Fall wedding.  We had the best time planning this stunning wedding, with the bride and her mom.  No detail was left untouched and we meticulously planned everything, from start to finish!  It was such a pleasure to watch our hard work come to life, while Ellen and John enjoyed their big day filled with true love and joy!

We incorporated many textures…from lush velvet to hand dyed silk.  Ellen and John both wanted navy and shades of blue to be the forefront colors, with pops of burgundy and orange.  The flowers, from Vessel, were stunning and overflowed gold candelabras and pedestal vases.  Each floral arrangement was set upon a gorgeous base of hand dyed silk, from The Lesser Bear.  This added a rich and silky texture for the florals to pop and candlelight filled votives to glow.  The tables were set with gold bead chargers and amazing gold flatware, which took the style to a new level of fun!  Each place setting was complete with a beautiful menu and thank you note, designed by You’re Invited, and a perfectly placed burgundy orchid.  It was exactly how we had hoped and dreamed!  Stunning!

The reception felt warm and inviting, with each table telling a story– the story of Ellen and John.  They grew up together, from First Communion (their first walk down the aisle together!), to best friends in High School.  They didn’t start seriously dating until college!  Each table captured a snippet of their story, from 1996-2017!  How sweet is that!?  It was truly a day full of love, laughter, friendship, and a celebration by all!  The band, Superstar Factory kept the dance floor packed and it couldn’t have been a better day!  Check out the amazing photos, by Kismet Visuals!
