Katie & Billy’s Wedding Celebration

Katie and Billy’s wedding this past May was a whirlwind of fun in Columbus, Ohio.  The rehearsal dinner was hosted at Buca di Beppo’s in the Arena District; hair and makeup was in Katie’s hometown of Gahanna; the wedding was at the lovely Worthington United Methodist Church; and finally, the reception was held at the Hyatt Capital Square.  Whew!  I had a great time and was so blessed to have met the wonderful friends and family of both the Belair and Noggle families.  Thank you again, Belairs and Noggles, for all of your generosity and warm hospitality!  Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend:

At the rehearsal:

I just want to say thank you to Mary Wetterauer of the Worthington United Methodist Church for all of her gracious assistance both before and on the wedding day.  Her calm and serene demeanor, plus her warm and helpful nature made the busyness of the day go so smoothly.  Thank you, Mary!

In the photo above, I like to think that Billy is wiping away a tear.  But since I didn’t see his face, I don’t know and Billy doesn’t strike me as sentimental.  But Katie was radiantly beautiful and I love her expression which makes me want to believe it’s a tear.  So let’s all say he’s wiping away a tear!  Awww!

Love this kiss!

The cookies were also the favors that guests could take home in the super cute, lemon-colored, takeout containers placed at each table setting.
