NINA + JOSH'S WEDDING DAY PREVIEWS | THE BLACKWELL, COLUMBUS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY


I can't talk enough about Nina -she is seriously the best! Nina is the girl you can be instant best friends with, as soon as you meet her, you'll feel as if you've known her forever! Upon our arrival she was ALL smiles which is the norm with her! 

I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT NINA & JOSH'S 'HIDDEN MICKEY' THEME!

Nina & Josh held their ceremony and reception at The Blackwell downtown on the Ohio State University campus. Envision DISNEY EVERYWHERE -from the fancy fast pass guest cards to the amazing firework light show during the first dance. It was gorgeous. Rita, of Prema Designs always does a fantastic job with every wedding design detail. We were in love! It was also great to take a ride down memory lane with all of the old and new Disney songs!

THE ENGAGEMENT STORY

Along with my best friend of 15 years (and now maid of honor), Joshua planned a city-wide engagement scavenger hunt the night before we were to leave for a 10 day vacation to California, his first time west of the Mississippi River. I got off work at nine and go to my car to see balloons and a note taped to my steering wheel. I opened it and it said, “Welcome to your engagement scavenger hunt! (He has never been good with surprises)” with a clue that led me to our apartment. My best friend was there & got me to change clothes and give me my next clue. That took me to Cap City Diner in Grandview, where we had our first date. His two best friends, and now co-best men, gave my my next clue. That led me to Ohio Stadium on campus, where two of our friends were waiting with the next clue. This led me to Dodo’s (my mom’s best friend of 30 years & basically my third parent, his name is actually Don, but I couldn’t say Ns when I was little, thus Dodo was born, and now he’s our officiant too!), who had to stall me a little since I was apparently driving quicker than other people could to get to the next place they were supposed to be. He was watching a Cal football game and made me watch some of it with him, while I endlessly asked, “Where’s my next clue?”. Finally, he asked me if I needed to use the bathroom while I was there, so I flew in there and found a beautiful bouquet of white roses & pink flowers that I don’t remember the name of, with my last clue. This led me to my parents’ house, where Josh was waiting in the driveway when I turned the corner. I barely got the car in park before I flew out of the car. He read a mushy speech (which I can barely remember because I was so excited), and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Once the deed was done, we went in to my parents’ house & they were waiting there, along with everyone else that was a part of the whole hunt, with a full array of all of my favorite foods! It was pretty magical and definitely not something I will forget any time soon.

While taking bridals I kept telling Nina she really did look like a princess! If there was one thing she definitely made happen on her wedding day it was becoming a true real life DISNEY PRINCESS! Yay for your mermaid hair!

Thank you for loving me through all of my imperfections, Disney obsessions, and being more concerned with how many days until I can cut my hair off, rather than how many days until the wedding. I don’t know where I would be without you.
— Nina

I especially LOVED our one grooms-woman! She looked fantastic in a black sequin dress that matched the ladies. So perfect!

The tables were adorable! Loved that they were attractions at Disney. You can also see the cute little Mickey ears on their cake! 


 
There are no words to describe the immense amount of love that Joshua and I felt over the last five days. We could not have asked for a more perfect and magical way to begin the rest of our lives. Thank you to each and every individual who made it possible, there is no way to truly thank each and every one of you. We love you so very, very much.
— Nina, off to her honeymoon
