Real Wedding

Cody + Joseph Wedding | April 27th

How They Met

The Bride // Joe and I met in high school where we attended prom together. Fast forward several years, Joe moved back to Perrysburg and was ready to settle down. He was then reminded that I was still in town and single so decided to message me. We went on our then again first date. I told my best friend Joe was still awesome and as sweet as he was in high school, but that was it. I still decided to go on a second date and from then on, I knew he was the one, as well as everyone around me. Due to our story starting in Perrysburg, we wanted to continue that so a year and a half later, Joe proposed on a snowy night in downtown Perrysburg next to the big lit up Christmas tree with just us two. We celebrated following dinner together at The Chop House with our two immediate families.

Their Wedding

The Bride // Our wedding was truly our favorite day! We were able to have so many loved ones not only attend our special day but helped with their skills. A close family friend sang during our ceremony, a childhood friend was our florist, an adult friend made our cake and I grew up with my makeup artist. It made our day extra special knowing so much love went into it. Sticking to our Perrysburg theme, we chose to get married at St. Rose Catholic Church where several family members of mine were married and his family are parishioners of. The reception was held at The Carranor Hunt & Polo Club. Our wedding vision was classic, simple and romantic. This club exudes those three qualities. We chose white flowers with flowing greenery. Tables were adorned with flowers as well as several floating candles to help achieve the romantic feel. After exquisite food and heartfelt speeches, the merging of our two families and an abundance of loved ones danced the night away!
