Celebrating the couples from our most recent issue on their anniversaries

Typically, we send our well-wishes to couples from our current issue on Mondays. This week, however, we were thrown by the arrival of the brand-spanking-new Fall/Winter 2018 issue! We hope a Tuesday afternoon kudos will suffice for these not-quite-newlyweds:

First up are Mindy and Damian Ettish, whose first anniversary back in May took place while we were putting the final touches on the issue. They were wed on May 20, 2017, at dock580. We’re planning to feature their beautiful, elegant event in our Real Wedding Wednesday series later this year, so consider the photos above a sneak peek.

Lindsey and James Boyd are next on our list; their first anniversary was June 3. Lindsey, herself an event planning coordinator, worked with the pros to plan a ceremony and reception at James’ parents’ home in Lancaster—the same home where she and James first fell in love. You can read more about their storybook romance in their Real Wedding feature here.

Erin and Jordan Lee tied the knot just a few weeks later, on June 17, 2017, at the Westin Columbus. The couple is a product of a blind date set up by a mutual friend (who, of course, served as a groomsman on the big day). They’re also on our schedule for a fall Real Wedding Wednesday feature, so stay tuned for even more lovely photos and sweet details about the Lees!

Finally, we have the adventuresome duo Elizabeth Fiorile and Colin Kindgren, whose second anniversary was just yesterday! Also choosing to host their big day at a family home, this couple might just win our award for “best honeymoon;” they ventured to Zanzibar and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to celebrate their union. Elizabeth and Colin also have a Real Wedding feature; it’s available here.

From all of us at Columbus Weddings, a happy (if belated) anniversary to all eight of you!
