High School sweethearts Amber and Danny finally tied the knot! The couple’s relationship first began when they met in 2000 at their high school at the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center in Columbus, Ohio. After 13 years of long distance relationships, and a lifetime of adventures, laughter and love, the couple finally got married. Being a fun loving couple from Columbus, COSI, the Center of Science and Industry, made for the perfect unique location to host their big day! Before the ceremony, Amber and Danny had a first look session, featuring the beautiful downtown Columbus Skyline. The ceremony was held in COSI’s planetarium–this was the first time that the planetarium had been used as a ceremony space. Amber and Danny constructed a beautiful wooden backdrop complete with mason jars and led tea candles. Family photos followed afterwards in the Ocean exhibit. Their outdoor reception was breath-taking, overlooking the evening Columbus skyline on the east side of COSI along the Scioto River. One of the unique features from their reception was their “Zombie” themed wedding cake featuring the couple battling zombies on the top of the cake- Danny was depicted yielding a golf club and Amber holding an ax. The couple’s dogs, or “fur babies” as they like to call them, Boz and Lola, even made the top of the cake! Amber payed close attention to all the details of her day, from the whimsical blue and orange color scheme, to her beautiful large bouquet, to her blue veil that she made herself. The unique setting, Amber’s careful attention to detail, and the couple’s love for each other and love of life made their wedding one to remember.
The other day, my friend (who is planning her wedding for August), was talking to me about how tired she is of seeing the same old wedding stuff.
“What exactly do you mean?” I asked, because I never get tired of seeing wedding stuff. “Everyone has the same types of centerpieces, the same decor…I want everything in my wedding to be totally unique,” she said.
I can understand her point. Many ideas are overdone and this can be frustrating for a bride who really wants her wedding to stand out. This prompted an hours-long search for unique wedding elements. Some of my favorites were the centerpieces, and I wanted to share them with you!
Won’t you look at this colorful and awesome wedding. The blue, greens, and pinks totally went well with each other and they created this lively palette that I’m sure many brides-to-be are considering. And aside from this palette, the details were whimsical as well. The cake had a funny topper, it was surrounded with cupcakes in the colors of their palette. They had a sweets stations (ahhhh) and lots more! Congratulations on your wedding, Morgan & Patrick!
