It finally happened! Mark and Bevin tied the knot! I think it felt like a long time coming because of how much Bevin involved us with her plans. I’ve never felt more a part of a wedding. From being sent a dress pic from a fitting, to getting updates about all their gorgeous details, we couldn’t be happier with being chosen for their special day. Bevin was so totally organized. There were even times I would give her something to add to her to do list – and she would tell me she had already had it done! I think I eventually told her that she’d out-planned herself (I mean that it a good way, in a “I’m in Awe!” way.) First, if you haven’t seen it, we had a blast with their engagement session – it was there I started to get a glimpse of what to expect moving forward with Bevin as the organized woman she is. She showed up with a bag of all different types of props and of course wine that assisted in the uber cute shots on the dock. After that I knew that this couple was going to totally personalize their wedding. Which got me more than a little excited for it!!
So here we go! We started at one of their favorite places – The Book Loft in German Village – for their first look. Then it was off to tool around Columbus finding unique spots for the bridal party shots. We were a little worried about finding locations due to the fact that it’s December in the Midwest (trees offer no shade because there are no leaves!) and the forecast said there wouldn’t be a cloud in the sky. Ahh!! But with a little persistence we found some perfect spots and the sun decided to cooperate with us. Hallelujah!
Then it was back to Via Vecchia Winery for a heartfelt ceremony and a celebration to rival all celebrations. Details galore, a little surprise for Mark, tears, loads of laughter, and dancing!!
We are happy to present to you the merging of two families, the commitment of one soulmate to the other, and the support of loving friends. We couldn’t be happier that Bevin and Mark found each other and are on this journey called life together!
Just an FYI - The backdrop for Bevin and Mark's wedding is a handmade quilt with a picture of every (maybe one or two are missing) person who was in attendance. Really shows how much these two value their friends and family!!
Okay - so Bevin surprised Mark and knocked my socks off! She sang to him - heart melts! She has the voice of a song bird!!
Bevin's sisters read some beautiful words written by their father. As we all know... I'm a crier. Just looking at these images makes me tear up again!
Bevin and Mark put an adorable spin on the "wedding guest book". They had guests write their well wishes on a christmas tree ornament!! Every year they are going to be reminded of every single person who came to their wedding in support of their marriage! How beautiful!!
