AHHHHH, this was the elusive last wedding of my 2016 season. And what a wedding it was! I would call this a New York wedding in Columbus. They pulled out all the stops, including a brand spankin’ new venue, Grandview Yard’s Grand Event Center, which I can’t wait to tell you about.
Jessica and Greg tied the knot in German Village’s St. Leo. I was able to talk to the priest off and on throughout the day, and he was a seriously great guy. I’m not sure why I’m mentioning that, other than the fact it really stood out to me as one of the things that made this wedding so special. Petals and Leaves provided the stunning florals for the whole celebration. The bride was a knockout in a La Jeune Marie Bridal Collection dress. Simply Makeup and Hair put Jess’ whole look together.
From the church we did bridal party photos at Schiller Park. The bridesmaid’s soft blush dresses were the perfect pop of color for the romantic setting. Jessica and Greg were filled with laughter and excitement.
And on to the reception we went. The Grand Event Center is one of Columbus’ newest event venues. It is modern, chic, and very elegant. The ballroom is accented with angled LED tube lights that offer a fun party backdrop. The service is top-notch. This wedding had appetizer stations that consisted of a seafood bar, an sushi and noodle station, antipasto stations, pasta stations, and servers that were walking around with other mouth watering treats. Everywhere you looked, the evening was overflowing with impeccable details, food and entertainment. A live band, the Red Hot Rhythm Review had everyone out of their seats and dancing even before the dinner started! Thank you so much for having me document this day- it was one I will always remember! XO Jess
