Real Wedding: Samantha & Zack

This month we’re featuring a beautiful Columbus bride and her new husband! Ever since I moved to Ohio, I have been in awe of all the beautiful architecture, old buildings and history. Columbus, is truly a magical place. This couple got married in one of the most majestic buildings in the city. Samantha is a local fashion blogger and business owner with an awesome sense of style! {No doubt her wedding would be picture perfect.} Let’s take a look at their big day!

Samantha + Zack Wedding

“We met at a Christmas party when I was on break from college in 2015. We’re both from the same hometown of East Liverpool Ohio but never knew each other growing up. We went to neighboring high schools and Zack is two years older than me. We just built a house in Columbus and plan on staying here a while!”

He got down on one knee in the middle of the rotunda and asked me to marry him. {Which is where our wedding ceremony also took place!} He also had a photographer there to capture the entire thing!

After he said we were meeting our families the next morning for brunch and he had plans for us to have a little private dinner at my favorite restaurant, the Guild House! When we arrived, both our families were there to surprise me! It was the most perfect day.venue.jpg

Our wedding was at The State House in downtown Columbus. We had a very classic, formal wedding. We wanted it to be timeless!

My consultant was Cait Rudolph and I can’t say enough amazing things about her! She styled me from head to toe and knew exactly what I wanted / needed. The La Jeune Mariee store is like being in a fairytale everyone there is incredible, and they have the most amazing selection of dresses!

We had a vision from day one-simple, classic, timeless- so all the details came together a lot easier then expected.

I did have a very hard time finding bridesmaid dresses I liked. I didn’t want the girls in “typical brides maid “dresses.  I wanted elegant and classy. I had 2 maids of honor and 5 bridesmaids (7 total). They wore black long, slinky and form fitting dresses. They were actually not bridesmaid dresses, just evening gowns from Nordstrom by the brand Lulu. I loved the dresses we ended up going with! They were perfect.

Our service was religious, simple and 30 min in the rotunda of the State House (where Zack purposed). We had a very close family friend perform the ceremony, who actually only became ordained just so he could marry us! It was very personal and special.

“Our reception for sure! I could really feel the love from every single person in the room. We had an amazing band so there wasn’t one person not on the dance floor all night. Everyone had so much fun.”

advice.jpgStay organized! Get bins or boxes and separate everything you need for the big day in categories like “morning of”, “ceremony” , “details for photographer” and so on and label all the boxes accordingly!  Also make an itinerary or list of how you’d like your day of timeline to go and email it out to all your vendors and share it with bridesmaids as well that way everyone’s on the same page! Day of wedding advice: Give yourself a cushion on your timeline of at least 30min-1 hour that way incase anything needs to changed you won’t be rushed!
