Real Wedding

David + Eve Wedding | May 23rd

How They Met

The Bride // We were students The University of Toledo when we met during the fall of 2010. Per tradition at UT, David’s fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, was paired with my sorority, Delta Delta Delta, to build a float for the homecoming parade. We met one October evening when our two organizations were working on that year’s float. After three years of dating, David proposed on Saturday, November 9, 2013 as we were enjoying a relaxing weekend morning together. He knew it was the perfect moment to propose!

Their Wedding

The Bride // Inspired by the vision of an ethereal spring wedding with a delicate pastel color palette, soft florals, and bountiful greenery, David and I planned a traditional wedding. It took place at the church of my early childhood, St. John’s Christian Church in Archbold, Ohio. Surrounded by our family and dearest friends, we exchanged vows on a lovely May afternoon. After the ceremony we hopped into a gleaming white 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible. A perfect retro touch, we spent our first moments together as husband and wife being chauffeured around town. Dinner and dancing followed in Founder’s Hall at Historic Sauder Village. The serene color scheme of white, gray, blue, and soft pastels along with gentle florals and greenery carried through to the reception. Kristen Nicole Photography captured the wedding’s ambiance with her natural and effortless style – just the way we wanted to remember all the special moments of our wedding day. Now each year when May arrives wreathed in sweet flowers and soft breezes, David and I recall that perfect spring day when we were surrounded by love from family, friends, and each other.
