Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

You’ll probably recognize Halle and Chris Kost from our Real Wedding Wednesday feature last week … that wedding gown (actually a mini-dress with a custom tulle skirt) is pretty hard to forget. But if you didn’t catch all the details on their Aug. 5, 2016, wedding at Strongwater Food & Spirit, just click here to check out the post.

Trisha and James Merker’s wedding—which Trisha says carried a glamorous, classy, romantic theme—at the Heritage Golf Club took place amid picture-perfect weather on Aug. 6, 2016. The Dayton residents treated their guests to a luxurious event, complete with a champagne bar at the ceremony and late-night bites before everyone departed for the evening.

On the same day, Yasmine and Dimitri Makridis said “we do” at Topiary Park in Downtown Columbus before heading to Walter Commons at St. Charles Preparatory Academy for their reception. Much of their relationship circles around Downtown, so it’s only fitting that they were married there; they met as interns in the city prosecutor’s office, and Dimitri proposed during a Clippers game.
