Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
Tyler and Justin Dehan met as freshman at Ohio State University, where they both lived in Mack Hall. The pair stayed friends for a couple of years and eventually went on their first date to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in the Short North. After five years of dating, Justin proposed to Tyler during her family’s Thanksgiving celebration at her grandparents’ home in Wilmington, Ohio—a place he knew was very special to her.
After an 18-month engagement, the couple said their vows in front of friends and family at the Franklin Park Conservatory. They were married by Cole Kaiser, a mutual friend whom they’d known throughout their relationship, which Tyler says was one of her favorite parts of the wedding. After their vows, they performed a unique unity ceremony where they combined different colored glass crystals. After the wedding, the glass crystals were blown into a vase in the conservatory’s Hot Shop to keep in their home.
Along with these personal touches during the ceremony, Tyler says her favorite memories of the day are getting ready with family and friends and the couple’s first dance during the reception.
