May 18, 2019 | They say dog is man’s best friend, and Zach and Danielle (Anderzack) Hume’s dog Ham certainly proves the point. The pup made his escape from Zach’s yard early in the couple’s relationship; he was found hours later wandering Danielle’s street. “It was clear that Hamilton knew we were meant to be together before we did,” Danielle says; this week marks the second anniversary of and Zach Hume’s colorful pre-pandemic wedding.  

The day was filled with homages to the couple’s family, from the lace wrapping Danielle’s bouquet (taken from her late grandmother’s wedding gown) and the flowers themselves (designed by a family member of Danielle’s) to the couple’s rings (Danielle’s engagement ring belonged to her late stepmother and the small diamonds in it came from her mother; Zach’s ring belonged to his late father). 

But despite these personal touches, Danielle says the most memorable moment of the day came during the afternoon portrait session, when photographers Seth and Beth Kerechanin were working on one of their epic captures. 

“Seth had him jumping in the air, and on about the third take I heard [Zach’s pants] rip,” Danielle remembers. “I of course was dying laughing, and Seth and Beth were trying to assure Zach they would sew them back together.” Fortunately, Pursuit came to the rescue: The couple took their trolley to the Short North shop, which replaced his pants and even hemmed them on the spot. 

“The day was perfect—better than we could've imagined,” Danielle says. “The food at Juniper was amazing, the flowers were stunning, and our guests spent the night drinking our signature cocktails, named after our dogs, and dancing the night away.”
