The end of the year brings celebration and excitement for what is to come. For Pursuit couple Katy & Andrew year-end was made extra special with a fantastic December 30th wedding!
The ceremony was held at Columbus' Advent Evangelical Lutheran Church and was complete with a U.S. Navy 'Saber Arch' send off. Our Dream Photos by James DeCamp Photography captured these great shots and were gracious enough to share with us.
We at Pursuit were thrilled to be included in Katy & Andrew's celebration. Andrew has been a loyal supporter since way back in September of 2011 when we threw a huge launch party at the Ohio State Urban Art Space. Andrew was there hours before the party, helping us set up our very first pop-up shop within the party with his brother Greg, an MBA classmate in the OSU entrepreneurship course where Pursuit was born. The Bice family have been great friends and we were so happy to get to know Katy & the Klabunde family too!
Andrew knew he and his guys needed to look their best as they shared the stage with Katy & her bridesmaids. The bride wore a beautiful Jim Hjelm gown from Columbus favorite, La Jeune Mariee while the bridesmaids were in Jenny Yoo from bhldn.
Pursuit outfitted the groom, groomsmen, and father-of-the-bride in slim fit tuxedos, slim white dress shirts, and black bow ties to give them the formal look with a great fit. All these are in-stock items in Pursuit's Black Tie Collection so there's no need to rent a boxy tux when you can own one that actually fits for not much more. We fitted much of the group in-store while they were visiting for Thanksgiving and the remainder of the groomsmen, scattered around the country, ordered from us online. Katy summed up why they chose Pursuit by saying...
"We wanted a tux that was modern and fit well. We also wanted to support a local company and liked working directly with someone to find the exact look we had in mind."
Following the ceremony the couple threw a rowdy reception at the gorgeous New Albany Country Club complete with music from The Conspiracy Band. We thought the photos captured the spirit of Pursuit--dressed up but not too stuffy to get down! We especially appreciated the bride participating in the 'Bow Tie Limbo'--can't do that with a clip-on!
With Andrew's Naval service moving him around the country the couple has been dating and planning the wedding long distance so they are excited to start the next chapter, in the same city, as a married couple. Looking back they have one simple piece of advice for those planning to get married, planning a wedding, and planning their lives together..."Be each other's best friend"
We created Pursuit to outfit guys for all the life changing moments they wear suits (and tuxedos). We appreciate Katy & Andrew allowing us to be a part of their special day!
