I enjoyed spending the day with Allison, Garrett, and their amazing friends and family! This stunning wedding had was a GESU ceremony and Stone Ridge reception.
Allison and Garrett met at a local bar just off of OSU’s campus. It was during the last song of the night (Hang on Sloopy) when they met and swapped numbers and ended up texting until 6am. Garrett says he knew Allison was the one after their first date. He went home and told his mom “this is the girl I’m going to marry”.
On the second night on a Cancun family vacation with Allison’s family, Garrett asked her to sneak away before dinner and take pictures out on the pier with him. They first took pictures of Allison’s sister and brother-in-law on the pier. Then they swapped places and as they did, Allison’s sister passed a small box to Garrett. Then Garrett knelt down and proposed on the pier! Allison’s sister took pictures, her brother-in-law recorded the whole thing, and her whole family was cheering and clapping from up on the balcony of the hotel room where they watched.
Allison’s Grammy was the flower girl and she was SO excited. She was absolutely adorable walking down that aisle. In between the Toledo wedding ceremony and Bowling Green reception, we traveled to Toledo Botanical Garden for some portraits! The pair’s first dance was super special because Allison and Garrett danced to the first song they ever danced to AND the dance was choreographed by her grandparents who used to compete in ballroom dancing! They spent many hours dancing with them and learning the steps.
The wedding was so family-centered and elegant. I loved how happy and excited everyone was to attend the wedding and it was an unforgettable night! I can’t wait to share the photos with you below!
