Venue: Magnolia Hill Farm
The Henry Family own Magnolia Hill Farm. The couple are veteran photographers with a passion for beautiful weddings and amazing couples. The farm also includes a blossoming peony farm. What more could you ask for in a venue. They say it beautifully with these words, "Where intentional style meets a venue on a hilltop,the possibilities are endless. "
Wedding Party Gowns: La Jeune Mariee
Le Jeune Mariée has been working with brides for over a decade and is sought-after for their unique approach and designer bridal gown selection. Who can say it better than them?

Couture Bridal Gown: Lazaro Bridal Couture
Lazaro seems to say it best and I couldn't say it better. "Lazaro’s collection is a sumptuous mix of dreamy romance, timeless elegance and just a sprinkle of diva glam. Designed to enchant and seduce, Lazaro creates frothy ball gowns to sculptured trumpets. Goddess gowns in luxurious fabrics shimmer and bedazzle, as modern florals with botanical motifs capture a brides love for the romantics. Metallic gowns that sparkle under shimmering net and layers and layers of luscious lace for tempting textures. Lazaro creates perfection for a bride’s evening under the stars, an opulent ballroom bathed in golden light, or a magical destination far far away. "
Veil: Toni Federici Veils
Finding the perfect veil to set the mood can be quite a job but Toni Federici's selection of unique pieces might fit your style perfectly.
Photography: Starling Studio

They sum it up so perfectly.
"Old Slate Farm is a cut flower + Katahdin sheep farm located in central Ohio. We specialize in crafting beautiful event florals from sustainably grown flowers raised on our farm and other specialty cut flower farms across the state and nation.

Videography: Time Capsule Collective
Videography is one of the most important things I would recommend for a wedding. Every little moment counts. The day goes so fast and it is impossible to see every little detail come together unless you have a video. Time Capsule says it beautifully,
"Wedding films should be about more than just looking perfect in slow-motion shots. It’s about the little moments in between; the random outbursts of singing with your bridal party, the proud stories your loved ones share, the tears you let out because you just can’t help yourself. And you deserve to remember every second of it."
Invitations and Paper Products: Paper Refinery
Specializing in quality, custom products for the bride and groom to cherish is the Paper Refinery's passion. Here are a few words from the Paper Refinery:
"Every great party starts with the perfect invitation, but the small details throughout the celebration will help make it memorable and special. Here at Paper Refinery, I enjoy working hand-in-hand with you and your planner to help create pieces that are unique, polished, and most importantly… unforgettable."

"Our family has been the culinary force behind exceptional events in Central Ohio for three generations. Maria and Tony Susi opened the Berwick in 1955 with the dream of bringing families and friends together to celebrate special occasions with delicious fresh-cooked food. That passion for food and service has now been passed on to the younger Susi generations and we all take great pride in carrying on Maria and Tony’s legacy."
