Sarah + Ben Wedding | June 24th
How They Met
The Bride // I am the Executive Director of the Hancock Historical Museum in Findlay, Ohio. Ben and I met at the museum several years ago when he served as project manager for a new building on our campus.
The Bride // Much of our wedding was DIY. My work and my love of history and vintage pieces certainly influenced our wedding style. My inspirations for the table-scapes were vintage brass and antique flow blue china. I collected more than 130 antique brass candlesticks, 60 brass containers, and 60 pieces of rare English flow blue in the year leading up to our wedding. The flowers were another important element of our day. All of the floral designs were grown and created by an organic flower farm in Elida, Ohio – Buckeye Blooms. They used many of the vintage brass pieces I had collected for the arrangements. We also incorporated a variety of fresh fruit displays on the flow blue pieces for additional color and a nod to classic Dutch still life paintings. Finally, we used many pieces of vintage furniture to create seating vignettes around the museum campus. I loved curating all of the details of our day and working with so many incredible northwest Ohio vendors! My goal was to have all of our guests visiting from across the country to leave with a great impression of our region.
