I don’t often head back to Ohio to do weddings these days, but when it’s for an old friend, of course I do! Living in Wilmington for the last five years, I’ve really limited the amount that I go back to Toledo for weddings, but when Kristen reached out to me, I knew this was one wedding I couldn’t miss. Kristen and Bill planned their September wedding at the Toledo Zoo, which, by the way, is one of the coolest Zoo’s you’ll ever go to in your life. I definitely took it for granted as a kid because we went so often it lost it’s excitement, but now that I’m a “grown up” I am in total awe of this place. They had their ceremony at the Formal Gardens, surrounded by their family and friends, in a gorgeous little private garden. It was absolutely stunning! Their reception was held at the Great Hall, and yes, there was a real live sloth at their cocktail hour. Zoo perks!!!! I’m so grateful I was able to be there on their wedding day, and watch as they had the time of their lives while they said their I-do’s. CONGRATS KRISTEN AND BILL!!!!!
