Real Wedding

Colleen + Mark Wedding | September 15th

How They Met

The Couple // Colleen and Mark met while they were both working at the Toledo Museum of Art and became friends. After a while, they quickly realized there was much more to their relationship than they initially thought. They started dating in 2015 and in 2017 saw a major life change when Mark's job took them to Buffalo, New York. They were engaged on November 25, 2017 and wasted no time planning their wedding.

Their Wedding

The Couple // Colleen and Mark planned an intimate wedding with family and close friends. They decided to marry at the place they met and which holds so many memories for the couple - The Toledo Museum of Art. They knew without a doubt that although most of the wedding and reception would be DIY, they just had to have flowers from Bartz Viviano! The ceremony was followed by a relaxed backyard reception at the Bride's childhood home where they would dance the night away under a large tent from Meredith Party Rentals, and enjoy a casual wood-fired pizza buffet from Pepperoni Tony's, oh and, of course, an open bar!
