I cannot wait to share my very last wedding of the year with you, Erin and Corey! Their Toledo wedding with Meghan Markle royal wedding vibes was just absolutely stunning. Their wedding was romantic and traditional and took place at the perfect setting for those royal and regal wedding feels. The lovebirds incorporated a burnt orange as a nod to fall along with classic black, white, and gold.
Erin and Corey met on Match.com and had a 98% compatibility rating. I find that pretty amazing!
Corey proposed on the night of Erin’s 10-year high school reunion in Florida. Corey took her out on the beach pier that night and asked Erin to be his wife. She said they met up with her old friends afterward, which gave her an opportunity to introduce him as her fiancé for the first time.
The couple opted to not see each other beforehand but wanted to hold hands and read notes that each had written before the ceremony. Erin also did a first look with her dad and Corey did a first look with his mom. The ceremony took place at Holy Rosary in Toledo. Corey and Erin spent a lot of time selecting the readings, hymns, and prayers that best reflected them and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Once the ceremony was finished, it was time for portraits around the beautiful Cathedral as well as inside the reception venue while guests enjoyed cocktail hour. Then, it was time to party!
The reception was so regal and elegant. Erin and Corey opted for two different centerpieces with different heights as well as white and gold chiavari chairs. They had lots of fun elements to their day such as their photo booth and donut and cookie tables. The cookie table was a nod to Erin’s profession, an attorney, and the donut table featured handcuffs and police tape and a blue police light to showcase Corey’s profession as an Ohio State Trooper.
The two danced the night away with family and friends and towards the end of the night, Erin ditched her long-sleeved dress and long veil to change into a stunning sequined jumpsuit that was the perfect party outfit. The couple cut their cake, which was a replica of Meghan Markle’s cake and actually featured a lemon elderflower tier as well! The day was so so beautiful and I wish them years of happiness together!
