Mark & Jenn moved to Cincinnati from upstate New York a few years ago. For their wedding, they decided to give their family & friends the local Cincinnati experience. Planning a strategic Friday wedding allowed them to have an extra weekend day together before everyone parted ways. Their gorgeous wedding was at Ault Park in its prime on a gorgeous summer day.
Mark and I are both from upstate NY and moved to Cincinnati 5 years ago.Our wedding ceremony and reception took place at Ault Park in Cincinnati, OH. We had over 100 friends and family travel from out of town, mostly from upstate NY. We planned an entire weekend of events for our guests since for most of them, it was their first time to Cincinnati. Mark had a golf outing on Thursday at the TPC Riversbend, the wedding was on Friday and we rented a private party deck at the Great American Ballpark for the home game against Detroit.Although we knew this weekend was celebrating Mark and I, we wanted it to be special for our friends and family, some who we haven’t seen since moving to Ohio. Our custom hotel guest bags were filled with Cincinnati favorites. Cookies from Busken Bakery, Indiana Popcorn and Grippos Chips. We had the trolly schedule with list of events going on downtown and local restaurant list. In order to help our guests prepare for their trip, on our wedding website we listed our favorite restaurants (with favorite dishes) and things to do in the city. We also had a little “first aid” bags that were stamped with “Keep Calm and Carry On”. They were filled with Shout Stain remover, tylenol, antibacterial wipes, Emergen-C and mints.
I clearly enjoyed every pop of coral & gorgeous detail from this wedding.
However slipping away for a quiet break on the balcony was my favorite moment.
We all had a chance to breathe & soak in the amazing beauty of the day’s close.
All the best to these two! ♥
