Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.

College sweethearts Andrea and Steve Lemasters had what we consider to be a quintessential storybook wedding, which was preceded by what we’d call an equally quintessential storybook romance. Settle in and we’ll tell you the tale:

The Columbus couple met as undergrads at DePauw University in Indiana; he was a junior, and she was a freshman. After dating for nearly eight years, they took a ski trip with family and friends to Holiday Valley, which culminated in a spontaneous day-trip to Niagara Falls. After coordinating the details with everyone but Andrea, Steve proposed while walking along the American side of the falls.

The Catholic ceremony included a live trumpeter, and the reception had several nods to the newlyweds’ alma mater: taking a photo with a “Marvin’s Delivers” banner, in a traditional nod to a DePauw favorite restaurant; a rousing rendition of the “sweetheart song” by Steve’s Phi Kappa Psi brothers; and Marvin’s-themed late-night snacks, including garlic cheeseburgers and garlic fries with ranch. (A sharp contrast to the elegant dinner featuring white gazpacho soup, arugula salad and a choice of Chilean sea bass, filet mignon or Boursin-stuffed chicken.)

Also memorable that day, Andrea says, were the moments she and Steve spent together—from their pre-ceremony first look and seeing each other when the doors opened at the church, to practicing their first dance choreography alone in the reception space before guests arrived.
