Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

Congratulations are in order for three couples from our fall/winter 2018 issue today; two tied the knot one year ago yesterday, while the third has their first anniversary today.

First up, you’ll likely recognize Molly and Donald “Rudy” Youell from last week’s Real Wedding Wednesday feature. The pair’s Hilton Columbus at Easton reception featured a sunny theme; you can learn more about it here.

The same day, on the other side of town, Abbey and Robin Darr were saying “we do” at St. Brigid of Kildare Church in Dublin. And while the day was full of special moments, Abbey cites one as standing out: “Our favorite was hugging our parents and grandparents after we were officially married,” she says. “It was so special.” The couple and their guests headed to The Bluestone in Downtown Columbus for the reception, where their band, Zack Attack, got the party going … despite a temporary power outage, even. “The band just came off stage and kept playing,” Abbey remembers. “They didn’t skip a beat.” Thankfully, the power was quickly restored and the magical evening continued without another hitch.

Finally, Lakshmi “Lucky” Rangaswamy and Matthew Rooks were wed one year ago to the day in an Indian ceremony at Cambridge Country Club in Byesville, Ohio, followed by a reception at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel. Lucky and Matt were recently featured in our Real Wedding photo gallery; you can learn more about them and see more photos of their wedding here.
