Friend or Family Member, or Professional Officiant for Your Wedding?

Posted: May 7th, 2020

It’s becoming more common for couples to have their wedding ceremony and reception at the same location or outside the formal structures – meaning we see less and less ceremonies inside a religious building. That means the couple has to hire or find someone to officiate their wedding, and it can be an overwhelming decision – should you hire a professional or personal officiant for your wedding? We’ve put together…

Ashley + Brian / Westin Wedding

Posted: April 29th, 2020

Ashley and Brian had a beautiful Columbus wedding at two of my most favorite venues in the city! Their ceremony was at the stunning St. Joseph Cathedral, and they had a beautiful Westin wedding reception. Ashley is the sister of a previous StR bride – it’s funny how siblings can be so different! I’m starting to realize that with my own kids, but it’s interesting to see it with my…

Columbus Museum of Art / Jessa & Josh

Posted: April 7th, 2020

Jessa and Josh had the most perfect winter wedding at the Columbus Museum of Art. They hired us to pull all their hard work together, and finalize all the details in the last couple months of their planning. They had a classic wedding in mind, with holiday winter touches (say hello to these amazing chargers at each place setting!) – and with a great group of vendors, it was everything…

Athletic Club of Columbus Wedding // Maggie + Patrick

Posted: January 29th, 2020

Maggie and Patrick’s Athletic Club Wedding was one of a kind! It perfectly captured their elegance, style, and jet-setting personalities! The couple resides in New York City and work crazy schedules, so hiring a planner was a must for their Columbus wedding. When I first spoke with Maggie, I adored her personality. She has a get it done attitude and is all over the details! She knew she could handle…

Juniper Wedding // Krystal + Brad

Posted: January 3rd, 2020

Krystal and Brad’s Juniper Wedding was nothing less than spectacular! The pictures from Stephanie Kase Photography speak for themselves…I can’t say enough about every detail. The color palette, the florals (State and Arrow crushed it!), and our gorgeous couple. Seriously…amazing! Krystal and Brad came to me as a referral from a past client. You know it’s a good fit when you love the couple that referred them and you have…

Worthington Hills Country Club Wedding / Kiley + Hartwell

Posted: December 20th, 2019

Kiley and Hartwell…married at Holy Family Church, with their reception at Worthington Hills Country Club. We’ve worked at both venues before, but never before have I seen WHCC look like it looked for this wedding! Kiley’s mom found me, and encouraged her daughter to hire someone to be with her along the planning process (since she lives out of town), and I’m so glad she did! I don’t know if…

High Line Car House // Laura Beth & Damon

Posted: August 10th, 2019

When I met Laura Beth, I knew she would be such a great bride to work with! She is literally the sweetest thing you’ve ever met. Truth be told, she didn’t exactly have the ring when we started planning (hah!)…but we had limited timing with their jobs, and she was ready! Let me also say that I just love winter weddings – I was so happy when she said their…
