COURTNEY AND MIKE, MARRIED AT THE HEART OF AFRICA, COLUMBUS ZOO AND AQUARIUM, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

FROM WADE TO MARSDEN

TOP SECRET: Shhh...DO NOT TELL MIKE - he does NOT know that I am taking his last name yet...it will be a surprise when he reads my letter to him!
— Courtney, secretly changing her name without Mike knowing

Courtney & Mike were married at the Heart of Africa - Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Columbus, OH. All their friends and family came all the way from Cleveland even thought they had their very own Zoo down the road. But, when you have giraffe right outside your window, can you really go wrong? We met Courtney & Mike at Cloverleaf Suites. Courtney had all her ladies ready to go and all her details ready for us. It was the perfect place to wait out the storm before we headed to the Zoo. We all had a blast wandering around The Heart of Africa for formals then snuck inside for the ceremony. They said their "I Do's" with the rain lightly falling around them and it was lovely. Then, as THE BEST NIGHT CAP EVER, the clouds parted for the most wonderful sunset photos. Swoon!
