The Blackwell Wedding
There are a couple of people in my life who I probably should start paying a finder’s fee. My sister is one of them.. she sends me friends and coworkers all the time (thanks, Sherri <3 ) Another person is my friend, Kaiti, who does my hair (and Lauren’s). She sent Lauren and Mariah to me (see their wedding blog here) and most recently she referred Gina and Byron to me.
I met Gina and Byron and their son, Giovanni, at a little cafe in Canal Winchester and they told me all about their relationship, how they met (at The Ohio State University) and their plans for their wedding at The Blackwell on campus in Columbus .
The Blackwell is a beautiful hotel just beside the beautiful Ohio Stadium and has lots of photo options in the courtyard out back as well as with a short walk to the stadium. The ballroom is large and well lit and the custom lit monogram on the wall gives the big, open space a sense of personality and individuality. Gina and Byron’s families and friends had plenty of room to dance it out on the dance floor!
The surprise of the night was Byron’s serenade to Gina just as they were announced in to their reception. No one expected it, especially Gina! But it was definitely the highlight of the evening!
Thank you, Gina and Byron, for choosing me! I wish you all the best in your new adventure as husband and wife! <3 Congratulations!
