Real Weddings: Jenna + AJ – A C&D Event
With football season right around the corner, Jenna and AJ (hardcore Steeler and Ohio State fans) exchanged vows at the exquisite Merrimon-Wynne House on a simply spectacular day, while paying homage in their own way to their teams with the help of C&D Events.
Jenna selected a stunning white scalloped neckline with lace overlay paired with a knee-length veil. Her eight bridesmaids each donned their own unique gown design in pale peach hues, matching their breathtaking bouquets beautifully. AJ and his groomsmen sported black suits, vests and white ties, with a simple cream rose and greenery boutonnieres.
The ceremony was flawless, decorated with fresh garland and greenery. Guests enjoyed a touching ceremony filled with heartfelt moments with a setting that brides only dream of at the Merrimon-Wynne House.
Following the ceremony, friends and family started the party with a flag waving Steeler’s salute as the newlyweds entered the reception. The celebration didn’t stop there as dinner and dancing went on for hours! Unique touches could be found throughout the venue from lantern centerpieces to a fully equipped photo booth for guests to enjoy. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, talented family members created cookie masterpieces. Lace, creams, pastels and simple settings were the order of the day for Jenna, keeping things soft and subtle – an elegant affair.
As the night came to an end, Jenna and AJ made their exit through a tunnel of sparklers into a rickshaw that read “Just Married” – the perfect ending to an amazing day!
