Brooke and Nolan Woodbury married on Oct. 10, 2020.

Oct. 11, 2020 | Like many couples, Brooke (Theiss) and Nolan Woodbury had to rethink their spring 2020 wedding plans. “We had to make a lot of adjustments to getting married amidst the pandemic, and a lot of our great ideas had to be changed,” Brooke says, adding that moving their date from a Saturday in June to a Sunday in October was especially difficult. “But all of our vendors were phenomenal and worked alongside us to make our wedding dreams come true.” 

The pair, who met as juniors at Ohio State University and got engaged next to Mirror Lake, hosted a rustic and boho-themed wedding at Jorgensen Farms Historic Barn, where a number of thoughtful touches helped personalize the day. A mutual friend from college sang an acoustic version of their first dance (Brad Paisley’s “Then”), and the couple’s dog Mia served as their flower girl. The Woodburys also provided customized masks for guests in addition to their actual favor (customized drink koozies), offered three signature cocktails and provided their favorite late-night bite—Raising Canes chicken—as an evening snack.

“Being able to marry my best friend and have our closest friends and family there to support us during these unprecedented times,” was the best part of the day, Brooke says. “Having to postpone the wedding, there were many unknowns; having everyone there, safe and healthy, was the best thing.”
