Real Wedding Wednesdays: Chloe Tarrier and John Truitt

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

After years of searching for the right people, Chloe and John Truitt met online. Within a month, their budding virtual romance brought them together in the real world ... when Chloe finally agreed to a date. Almost a year later, John surprised Chloe with the perfect proposal: a romantic meal on his back patio, complete with the sweetest words and her mother’s ring. 

Through all of the craziness, their big days managed to go off without a hitch! Although Chloe and John were married surrounded by immediate family in Florida, at a private residence with special significance to the couple, they couldn’t wait to celebrate with all of their friends and loved ones back home in Columbus, which is where they had their final and biggest reception. 

“The reception day was honestly like a dream,” Chloe says. “Actually, both days were! But having already gotten married, there was much less stress the day of the [Columbus reception].”
