Real Wedding

David + Lauren Rudy Wedding | October 22, 2016

How They Met

Bride // The story of us began in 2014 in Cincinnati, Ohio. David noticed Lauren around town at Rhinegeist Brew-Yoga and at Sunday mass at Xavier University's Bellarmine Chapel. He worked up the courage to ask her to dinner after mass one fine Sunday. Lauren replied with an enthusiastic "yes" and the rest is history!

Over the past two years, we've truly enjoyed getting to know one another! We value each other's kindness, spirit, love of food, our competitive natures, and our hometown pride. David hails from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, while Lauren grew up in Toledo, Ohio. We believe that our family, friends, and faith are central to us both individually and as a couple. We are looking forward to growing together in the years to come!

Their Wedding

Bride // Our ceremony was performed at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Sylvania, Ohio, with a beautiful reception at Parkway Place in Maumee in the evening. Viridian Ivy captured gorgeous photos of special moments with our wedding party and the two of us at Wildwood Metropark. We chose Bartz Viviano for amazing floral arrangements, Wixey's bakery for our delicious cake, and Swatch Photobooth for the fun photo booth. All vendors were top notch and helped make the day oh so special for us! Stiletto Fire rocked the dance floor as our band, as well! Parkway Place handled everything beautifully! We would highly recommend all vendors!
