When Pursuit first launched as a pop-up shop an Ohio State student named Parker quickly became one of our most loyal supporters and a good friend. Soon after we also became friends with his now wife, Mariel and she went on to star in some of our early photo and video shoots (seriously, check it out). When the two got engaged I was excited to find out that Pursuit was going to outfit Parker and his guys and I'd be on the guest list. And the wedding did not disappoint!
The couple enjoyed a perfect night at The Darby House just outside Columbus in Galloway, Ohio. Another friend, Kim from Picture the Love, was the photographer that day and shared her fantastic photos with us.
Mariel selected a beautiful Stella York gown from Louis Christine Bridal Boutique & Atelier and dressed her bridesmaids in pink dresses from Wtoo. Parker selected slim fit blue suit separates, slim white shirts, and soft pink ties from Pursuit to compliment. Gorgeous floral arrangements and boutineers from Bloomtastic completed the look. Wedding officiant and Parker's dad, Scott, along with Mariel's father Jerry wore Pursuit as well, choosing our slim charcoal suits.
After an outdoor ceremony at dusk overlooking the water, the reception was held inside and featured food by Columbus institution, Cameron Mitchell Catering. The wedding cake was from Ele Cake in Dayton while additional cupcakes came from a friend of the couple, Emily Hagan.
Parker described his decision to include Pursuit as a no-brainer because of the service, style, and price. We appreciate the loyalty! And the loyalty to the alma mater the couple share was evident too as they danced to Hang On Sloopy at the ceremony after their choreographed first dance.
The couple was definitely organized in their wedding planning as they approached us roughly a year in advance of the wedding. But they advise others planning a wedding that there will always be things that don't go to plan. It's important not to sweat the small stuff and to keep the focus on the special day it is for the two of you.
We very much appreciate Mariel and Parker including us in their wedding, it was fantastic. If you know someone with a wedding on the horizon who may like our assistance with the look please connect below. Don't worry, putting me on the guest list is not a requirement.
