Anna and Ross met by chance at a party and spent the next year dating with an hour-long commute between them. Their love was undeniable though and it continued to blossom. They chose to say “I do” on a blustery winter day in Cincinnati, OH and the Oscar Event Center was the perfect place. It offered a warm atmosphere with its dark wood and classic styling. They exchanged vows beside an altar of flowing white fabric flanked by two large lanterns and wintery arrangements of branches with silver accents and decorative ornaments. They included a candle lighting unity ritual in their ceremony and had fun posing for portraits in the Oscar Center’s upscale pub after their first kiss as husband and wife.
Anna was simply stunning in her A-line gown, from BHLDN, with its beaded lace overlay and sheer neckline. She finished her look with an updo and dangling rhinestone earrings. Her bridesmaids wore chic gray gowns with deep V necklines and all of the ladies carried bouquets of white roses and greenery with gold fern-leaf accents. Ross and his groomsmen were dashing in black suits paired with gray silk vests and ties that added just the right amount of shimmer.
At the reception, gold and silver accents filled the room and a Christmas tree added holiday cheer. Evergreen branches and hurricane candles graced the tablescapes and guests were treated to a delicious buffet dinner. After Anna and Ross cut their multi-tiered wedding cake with its evergreen and pine cone motif, they hit the dance floor to party the night away with their dearest friends and family. Congratulations Anna and Ross!
