I can’t stop smiling today. Thank you to everyone who came out and helped make our day so magical. ❤ We have the best friends and family!

Taryn and Scott were married on the back patio of the Worthington Hills Country Club on Saturday, October 21, 2017. They were surrounded by many of their friends and family who openly loved and celebrated them from arrival to last call. When we arrived to the women's locker room, we were met with laughter and singing -It was definitely going to be a great day! After exchanging their heartfelt wedding vows, they received each one of their guests with hugs, kisses, and smiles. After an outdoor cocktail hour on the lawn, the celebration moved into the upstairs ballroom where toasts, dinner, and an epic dance party commenced! Of course, after the camera's were put away, we decided to stay awhile to dance party and group sing 'Piano Man' while waving our glow sticks and munching on chili cheese tater tots! It was a wonderful night! A ginormous congrats Taryn and Scott, you are both beautiful souls and we are so thankful that we met you! We hope that you're enjoying your honeymoon in Hawaii!  xoxo, Elle.

I suppose you could say we wanted a wedding that was equal parts a display of the love AND fun that we have together. No matter where we are, we are joking, laughing, and goofing off. We loved the idea of a ceremony that embodies the love we have for one another, with a reception that allows us to let loose. We love dancing so we added an extra hour to the reception so we could dance later into the night - including glow sticks.
— Taryn, on her wedding inspiration
I started planning the day after we got engaged - we knew we had to act early to get all of our preferred vendors, especially since we decided to get married on OSU’s bye week. I was an event planner for over a decade so planning, though at times stressful, comes pretty naturally to me. I had MULTIPLE spreadsheets, lists, and a binder that helped us keep organized. We planned our wedding from the Washington, D.C. area, so it helped to be a bit ahead of schedule so we could plan meetings and tasks around our trips home.
— Taryn, on her experience with planning her wedding


Plan as much as you can in advance and keep checking those tasks off the list so it doesn't all add up at the end. Most importantly - just remember why you are getting married, especially if/when you start to get stressed. Try not to put too much pressure on the BIG DAY. Yes it is a huge, expensive, big deal of a day, but ultimately it is about making a lifetime commitment to the person you love. If you come out of your wedding day a married couple - SUCCESS! YOU DID IT - Now go enjoy the honeymoon.
