Real Wedding

Katie + Stephen Wedding | May 4th

How They Met

The Bride // Stephen and I's love story is ten years in the making. We both grew up in Perrysburg and first met in the fourth grade when Stephen transferred to Fort Meigs Elementary school. While we had known of each other for years it wasn’t until the summer of 2009 when we finally met in a different setting. We were at a mutual friends house and after a few hours of awkwardness and plenty of peer pressure from our friends Stephen ended up asking me for my phone number. And after a few weeks of continued talking, he asked me to homecoming which quickly turned into us dating. And the rest is history! On October 14, 2017, in downtown Perrysburg, while surrounded by family and our closest friends, Stephen asked me to marry him. With the help of our families, he even planned a mini engagement party to kick off the wedding celebrations! On May 4, 2019, we finally got to say "we do"!

Their Wedding

The Bride // Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives. We celebrated our love in front of all of the people who have shaped us into the people and couple we are today, our family and friends! We feel truly so blessed. 

When it came to our vision on our wedding day, we just wanted everyone to have the best time and dance the night away! And our band, Blue Water Kings, helped with just that! They did a great job of setting the mood and keeping everyone on the dance floor all night! 

For the decor, we were looking for a neutral and timeless wedding. Hafner Florists, Uppercase Designs and Mager Designs helped transform our beautiful ceremony and reception venues into a dream come true! From the menus to the hanging lights to the flower centerpieces, it was more than we could have imagined! 

To help capture our day, we hired Viridian Ivy Images and 7th Floor Media. They were both AMAZING! They captured every moment and made us feel completely comfortable along the way!
