Loveland Wedding at Grailville | Kristin and Michael

October 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Kristin and Michael had the most perfect, rustic outdoors wedding that one could ask for on a beautiful September day.  (One of those weddings that you would probably find on the pages of Style Me Pretty.) It's actually very similar to what Tim and I have envisioned for our wedding day -- simple, tasteful, and with great food, wine and plenty of room to dance... all in one location.

Here's what Kristin had to say about their wedding and reception at Grailville in Loveland:

How did you meet?
We were introduced through mutual friend and bridesmaid, Cori.  She is Michael's childhood friend and my sorority sister.  The rest is history :)
 
How did you know he was the one? (And vice versa.)
He claims he knew immediately.  I think I always knew too, but continued dating some after we split and quickly realized he was the best man I had ever or would ever meet.  No one was going to treat me better or love me more completely.
 
Tell us about the proposal! 
He planned a weekend for us in Columbus, OH, where we met.  He surprised me with a picnic lunch at the park of roses near OSU's campus where we would always run together when we were in school.  As we finished and packed up, he dropped to a knee with the ring and had prepared something very sweet to say--much of which I did not even hear because I started crying right away.  From there we went to Marcella's in the short north for dinner.  The hostess led us to the back room, where both our families were waiting for us (completely unbeknownst to me!)
 
What inspired your decor/theme?
We actually wanted to stray away from a theme, per se.  The words we continued using during the wedding planning were "organic" and "intimate."  We more wanted our day to feel a certain way than to look one.  Since we were married in a restored barn and celebrated in the nearby field, we mostly were inspired by natural elements.  We kept decor simple and understated because we felt everything was already so beautiful.  
 
What's something you would like to tell future brides about planning a wedding? 
Its MUCH easier said than done, but try not to stress about things.  Your wedding day will be the best day and every moment is so very special.  But more importantly, this man is yours to share your life with for many happy years to come.  Focus more on your marriage and try not to get too caught up in all the planning craziness.
