Story from the Bride:
"Andrew is originally from Toledo, attended college at UT, and has lived in Cincinnati for 5 years. He plays keyboard in a band and has been playing piano for 18 years. I'm from Tiffin, Ohio and attended college and worked for 8 years at the University of Findlay. I enjoy training horses on the side. Currently I am in an Occupational Therapy weekend program and graduate in 2018. We both love traveling and being outside. We have taken trips to Yellowstone, Alaska, and California to name a few. We also frequently run together and are both training for an upcoming race.
We met when I came to Cincinnati for a Beyonce/JayZ concert because my sister had an extra ticket. My sister attended school in Cincinnati and it was the month before my sister was moving to Columbus. Andrew and I dated long distance and had to make a lot of sacrifices due to schedules. Andrew proposed by planning an elaborate scavenger hunt throughout the city of Cincinnati all based on special memories. It was very detailed and personal!"
Bride's wedding theme and special touches for the wedding
"My mom created the centerpieces (I assisted) for the reception. We used ferns as centerpieces. We also had guests sign records for the guestbook (because of Andrew's passion for music). Instead of table numbers, we named tables by campsites, trails we have hiked, and places we have visited together. I also made our invitations and wedding programs."
