Katie & Zach’s wedding had all of our favorite things: love, emotion, laughter…..and pizza!
Yep, we can say that when we met Katie & Zach, we bonded with them over our mutual love of pizza. And on the way to the Westin Great Southern Columbus Hotel, talking to Zach on the phone he was so excited, getting rings cleaned and preparing for the day, he mentions that he is delivering Dewey’s pizza to the bridal suite – we couldn’t resist getting a ring shot with Katie & Zach’s favorite flavors of Dewey’s pie.
Little did Zach know that we had been scheming with Katie for weeks about a secret first look. She wanted to surprise Zach before their ceremony, so we planned to have her come up the elevator during his portraits. Zach’s reaction was so sweet & genuine, he couldn’t stop looking at his soon to be wife saying “so beautiful” over and over.
And if that surprise wasn’t enough, Katie had also planned to change before the ceremony into her actual wedding gown to surprise him down the aisle!
Their heartfelt vows had all of us laughing (and crying, especially Mary Beth) while they committed themselves to one another forever.
Their wedding ceremony & reception was held at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center overlooking the Columbus skyline. After Katie smashed a chunk of cake in Zach’s face, the dancing started and there was one more surprise for the night….
A dance off! Pony came on and all of the groomsmen came running onto the dance floor wearing nothing but vests and their underwear – grinding and gyrating all over the place! The wedding guests were going wild with screams enjoying the last show of the night!
Our time spent with Katie & Zach and their families has been so fun, we literally enjoyed every moment with them and know they are in for a lifetime of happiness!!!
