Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

We’re bringing some light to this dreary Monday morning with a heartfelt congratulations to Karri and Kevin Payne, who celebrated one year of married bliss yesterday! Karri, a first-grade teacher, and Kevin, an X-ray technician, were wed at Northwest United Methodist Church—where Karri’s parents said “we do” 40 years prior.

Their reception at Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square carried a traditional theme, with a festive purple, navy and gold palette. Karri says her favorite aspect of the event was “getting to spend an entire day celebrating with all of our favorite people.”
