Real Wedding

Catie + Aaron Wedding | August 3rd

How They Met

The Bride // We met in Columbus through mutual friends. Aaron’s best friend Mike had a party where we hit it off and began dating. Fast forward four years and Mike lives in Minneapolis and we planned a trip with another couple to go visit him. While there, Mike and Aaron insisted we go see this waterfall attraction at Minnehaha Park. All of the couples took photos in front of the waterfall and we went last. We took a photo then Aaron got down on one knee on this tiny wet rock and pulled out a ring. It was a rush of happiness and fear of dropping the ring into the rushing waters to never be seen again. Luckily that didn’t happen and champagne was popped!

Their Wedding

The Bride // Our wedding was a mix of boho and garden. We wanted a whimsical type feeling to the day so we had all white linens with greenery and gold accents. Catawba Island Club is such a beautiful venue that we didn’t need to go too crazy with decorations and used the natural scenery. In addition to the greenery, we used succulents and herbs for flowers. I had a vision for the centerpieces and bouquets and Otto & Urban took that vision and exceeded our expectations. They were perfect! For the reception, we wanted a party with great music and K-Street Band did just that. We cannot recommend them enough for a wedding. They provided the pianist for the ceremony, guitarist for cocktail hour, and full band for the reception and the lead singer Kyle was an excellent coordinator of all of it. The dance floor was bumping all night and the photos captured are fantastic. For the photos, we are big fans of candids and natural photos and Adore Wedding Photography did amazing at capturing every moment in this way with a twist of art. From getting ready to the rain delay to Aaron’s dads first time ordaining to the sweaty dance floor, they were there. They were there and enjoyed being there, helping to put us at ease and to make our day perfect. Now we have unbelievably perfect photos to remember the day forever!
