Celebrating couples from our most recent issue.

First off, we'd like to wish a very happy (if a little belated) anniversary to Shannon and Daniel Martin, who were wed one year ago last Monday. If you're wondering why you haven't seen their photos in the summer/fall 2016 issue of Columbus Weddings, it's because they're the first couple we're featuring on our blog from the new winter/spring 2016-17 issue! It hits stands this Friday, so be on the lookout at your favorite local retailers and wedding vendor storefronts.

Now, back to the important stuff …

Shannon and Daniel were married Nov. 7, 2015, at the Scioto Reserve Country Club. They wrote secret, personalized notes about each other for the officiant to read at the ceremony. The couple nailed the "traditional and romantic" theme with a palette of ivory, blush and taupe and sweet details like handwritten escort cards, textured ivory runners and accent linens, and plenty of candles and tealights.

You can read more about the Martins in the new issue of Columbus Weddings; Shannon was interviewed for a story on charitable donations as guest favors, and the pair is featured in our Real Wedding section.
