If you were to ask me what two words come to mind when I think about Lori and Drew's wedding celebration, I would say, "jam-packed" (does that count as one word?) and "Starbucks!" Let me tell you, this couple LOVES their coffee (we had to make a special stop between the ceremony and reception site) and they added some other pretty unique touches to their wedding day. (Want to see what a wedding dress looks like when it GLOWS? Go black-light bowling!) We had ten hours of non-stop wedding fun!
Here's what Lori had to say about their wedding and reception here in Cincinnati:
How did you meet?
"Apparently we knew each other in the nursery way back when. However, we officially met twenty years later at UC (University of Cincinnati) through involvement in the UC Band."
Tell us about the proposal!
"We went on a walk in the park to a bench where five years prior Drew was my photography subject for a class. I got suspicious and gave Drew a full patdown of all his pockets. I missed one (clearly) and was SO surprised five minutes later when I forgot there was a question involved! The ring was very distracting."
What inspired your decor/theme?
"It all started when I saw a picture on Pinterest of a bride and groom standing in front of a Christmas tree. It was all downhill from there!"
Any fun plans for your honeymoon?
"An all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico! Perfect for getting out of Cincinnati in the middle of Winter."
Here are some of my favorite moments from their wedding! (You better get a snack because there are a lot!) ;)
