Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

We love a fun, unique weddings ceremony, and Adrienne and Shawn Gruber—who wed one year ago Saturday, on Oct. 6, 2017—certainly had one. After they were pronounced husband and wife, Shawn, a police officer, handcuffed Adrienne to him in a show of unity. The newlyweds then strolled down the aisle together as the Columbus Police & Fire Pipes & Drums played a recessional tune.

Adrienne also made sure that their dogs, who were “too excitable to be part of the wedding,” were included in some form. Guests took home bags of popcorn that paid homage to the pups, and fellow dog-parents received an extra goody: bags of treats to take home to their own fur-babies.
