Molly and Eric exchanged vows at the St. Francis of Assisi church in the Victorian Village neighborhood of Columbus Ohio. They kept things simple and let the beauty of the church, built in 1896 as a perfect example of Victorian architecture and style, speak for itself. The only decor they added to their ceremony was a simple wooden “welcome” sign adorned with a floral arrangement of roses, hydrangea and eucalyptus in their chosen color palette of pale peach and blush tones which stood outside near the church’s front steps. That same sign now hangs in the couple’s home as a reminder of their wonderful wedding day.
After the ceremony, Molly, Eric and their guests headed over to their reception at the High Line Car House, which they chose for its high ceilings, exposed brick walls and industrial chic chandeliers. They loved the overall feel of the space because it offered so much of the vibe they were going for and details like the main table’s gorgeous rose and greenery runner brought extra sophistication to their urban industrial theme. The centerpieces, a soft mix of blush and peach roses, white hydrangea and greenery created a light contrast to the navy blue and gray that completed their color palette.
Molly looked gorgeous in her princess-cut gown with its lace bodice and beaded waistline detailing. Its light layered skirting made her appear as if she floated on air and her shoes were an absolute knockout! Eric was stylish in his light gray suit and navy, polka-dot tie, a look his groomsmen mimicked, and Molly’s bridesmaids’ navy dresses completed the wedding party’s polished styling.
Molly’s mom pitched in when it came to the details. She made the table numbers, the letters for their L.O.V.E sign and the guest book sign. Mom also contributed the menus and place cards and Molly says the guest book was one of her favorite touches, “using our engagement pictures to create a photo book with wedding wishes that we can keep forever. The DIY touches made it special.” We couldn’t agree more, personal touches make all the difference and for Molly and Eric the combination of their DIY details and their stunning florals set the stage for a fun evening of dinner, dancing and celebration!
