On a beautiful July afternoon in Circleville, Ohio, Missy & TJ joined families and said “I do, Always”. These two are incredible spirits– long time best friends, who’ve known each other since childhood. Isn’t it amazing how perfect timing is never what we expect? They came together for their small town Circleville wedding after many years of waiting and growing, and threw a huge celebration.
At the last minute they opted for a first look and both ended up really happy that they did! The first look really erased all the nerves and gave them a private moment together before everything started. They also had a chance to take some gorgeous portraits during this time, which saved time to party after the ceremony.
The wedding ceremony in the vintage urban Circleville loft space was stunning. It was officiated by her father after he walked her down the aisle, and it was full of happy tears from almost the entire wedding party. TJ & Missy had Harry Potter seamlessly incorporated into their entire day. They made “the unbreakable vow” to each other while exchanging rings. They also gave gifts to each of their 7 children, who were their wedding party. Does it get any better than that? What a beautiful way to celebrate.
The tablescapes were crafted with flowers and Harry Potter books. Their cake and a few wedding accents tastefully reminded guests of the book quote “After all this time? Always.” If you know anything about all their love story, this was truly the perfect line for their wedding day! They gave out wooden wands that doubled as pencils in kids’ goodie bags. The fluttering winged-keys from Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets adorned all of the tables as well. The guestbook was a beautiful wooden chest of parchment pieces, with a real ink quill pen to write our notes to the couple with. “No muggles under the age of 21” were permitted to partake in the alcohol.
Thanks to The Loft at Pecks Hall in Circleville, OH for providing an incredible venue, 7 Mile Smokehouse for delicious barbecue, Sarai Hasegawa for the beautiful treats, Missy’s mom for crafting the floral arrangements, and the friends and family who made this day perfect.
