Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

Today we’re taking a moment to celebrate two couples who celebrated their first anniversaries yesterday. Join us in congratulating these no-longer-so-newlyweds.

Lori and Jennifer Holmes, who wed at the Hyatt Regency Columbus in a modern-chic ceremony featuring bridesmaids, bridesmen and lots of personal touches. After being introduced through mutual friends, the couple got engaged during a romantic vacation to the Bahamas for Jen’s 30th birthday … though Jen turned the tables on Lori by popping the question. You can read more about their big day in their Real Wedding feature here.

Elsewhere that day, Halligan and Matt Lasky tied the knot at Irongate Equestrian Center. Their rustic elegance-themed wedding was officiated by Halligan’s best friend and included a reading from Winne the Pooh by Halligan’s grandfather. “The whole vibe of our wedding was very intimate,” recalls Halligan. “We always knew that we wanted a small wedding, so everything was very personal.” The Laskys also have a Real Wedding feature; you can see it here.
