Wedding at The Stables in Whitehouse, Ohio

November 5, 2022

This couple from New Orleans had an absolutely beautiful celebration in Ohio … complete with a SPECTACULAR surprise sunset at their wedding at The Stables in Whitehouse, Ohio!

Emily and Zack’s love story started more than a decade ago. Emily and her family relocated from Ohio to New Orleans. Even though Zack moved outside of Emily’s school district at one time, they reconnected before their senior year of high school. The rest is history!

On their tenth anniversary of dating, Emily and Zack were on a trip to San Francisco. Zack took Emily to Chrissy Field, a beach near the Golden Gate Bridge. They had a picnic and shared a glass of wine from Napa where they visited the day before. Zack suggested that the couple take photo by the bridge. It was at that time that Zack got down on one knee and proposed!

Emily and Zack planned their dream wedding in Whitehouse, Ohio from across the country. They had lots of ideas to incorporate to make their wedding day an experience their guests would always remember. Among the special touches included a scavenger hunt, a popcorn bar, speciality drinks, and a second line … bringing their New Orleans tradition to the midwest!

It was a very windy fall day in Northwest Ohio. The morning of their wedding, Emily and Zack weren’t sure if their dream outdoor wedding at The Stables in Whitehouse, Ohio would be able to happen. But, rain held off during bridal party portraits, and miraculously, the ceremony went off without a hitch outdoors! Just as they thought the skies would be too dark for outdoor portraits before the reception, the skies opened up to a beautiful, glowing red sunset. A mouth-watering meal from Cork and Knife Provisions was followed by music and dancing led by Memorable Knights Entertainment. What a night to remember!

Emily and Zack are one of the friendliest couples one may ever meet. Their friendly dispositions and joyful zest for life are contagious. There is no doubt that their kindness extends to everyone they meet.

Many blessings for a happy and healthy marriage!

It was a WINDY day … but the movement in their photos was worth it!
This kiss. 🥰
