Our Wedding Day: June 23rd 2018

We finally pulled it off! Our wedding took place on June 23rd at Top of the Market here in Dayton, Ohio. In front of our children, family and friends we finally said “I Do” and made it official. The day went smoothly and was all we could of hoped it to be. We worked with some amazing vendors and were so blessed by all their amazing talent. Everything was perfect.

Thank You! To all of our amazing vendors, without you none of this would have taken place.

We were going for an industrial theme with softness and I think we were able to pull it off. The heavy wood, metal, and brick elements were made more gentle with the addition of velvet, pearls, florals, and rugs. We also ended up with a bit of a 20’s vibe due to my short, white bob and vintage inspired hair piece. Thankfully we were working with some very talented people who took my spattering of ideas and made it this one, beautifully coordinated event. I’m so very grateful that we live in an area big enough to have options, but small enough to build relationships with the people we chose to work with.

Now here’s the part I think you are all waiting for…the photos! I will section them out in portraits, ceremony/reception, and decor. Doing this will allow you to see the vision as a whole, but also the detail that went into each portion. Enjoy!









Until next time…
