About the Couple
Linzee and Brad had an amazing wedding reception at Nationwide Hotel. The beautiful bride totally rocked her gold reception dress!!
The couple are Ohio natives that have relocated to Colorado. In Colorado, they have reconnected and became friends all over again. It was extremely important to them to have their wedding in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio with their family and friends. Unfortunately, due to Covid, their ceremony had to be almost a year before their reception. See below to read more about their ceremony.
The Gender Reveal
You read that correctly! We had a gender reveal at the reception! A big thank you to Kirkbride’s Wedding Planning & Design and Stephanie Anter for helping to coordinate one of the most special and unique events ever at a wedding. Linzee and Stephanie worked hand-and-hand to surprise not only Brad, Linzee’s groom, but all of their guests. Linzee and Stephanie knew what the gender was going to be but no other guests, including the family, knew what the gender was going to be.
First, Linzee called everyone out to the dance floor. She really had to coax everyone out of their seats making sure everyone knew they wanted to know what she was about to say. Within minutes, every single guest was surrounding her, while the amazing Kirkbride’s team handed out a special gender popper to each of the guests. Linzee went to explain to Brad and the guests that they were going to be a part of their big gender reveal. On the count of 3, everyone popped their popper and the entire dance floor exploded in pink!! Everybody exclaimed IT’S A GIRL!! The excitement filled the floor as they hugged each other. Brad cried tears of pure joy.
This was a beautiful moment that Seth and I will always remember and all the family of friends will never forget. The beautiful baby girl will be born in the next couple of months. No name has been picked out yet. What a moment that we’ll never forget.
