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

When Amy and Shawn Gelsinger first met, they were mechanical engineering students at Ohio State University. Though they now live in Calgary (in Alberta, Canada), Shawn's proposal was quintessentially Columbus: He popped the question surrounded by Christmas lights in the Columbus Commons, after the pair attended a BalletMet performance of "The Nutcracker."

Just seven months later, the two wed in Merion Village in a traditional Catholic ceremony. Their cocktail hour featured a unique twist: It was hosted as a wine tasting, complete with hors d'oeuvres pairings. And with Cameron Mitchell catering the event, we're sure it was a tasty tasting.

Instead of a typical honeymoon to the Bahamas or Mexico, Amy and Shawn flew to Sydney, Australia, before continuing on to Cook Islands.
