It’s not too often that we come across a story as cute as Jordan and Dylan’s. The couple met when they were in the second grade, and they have been best friends ever since. Dylan even proposed to Jordan on the very same elementary school playground where they first met as kids. They had an industrial wedding at Dock 580 in Columbus, Ohio, and Joshua Kane Photography captured every sweet moment of their big day, from their adorable first look to their first kiss as husband and wife.

The Couple:

Jordan and Dylan

The Wedding:

Dock 580, Columbus, Ohio

The dress probably was the most stressful part of the wedding.  I got it from Wendy’s bridal in Cincinnati, OH.  I knew from the beginning that I wanted a David Tutera gown and had searched locally in Orlando for the designs I really had interest in.  I loved how his dresses fit me and after having zero luck finding those particular gowns, I decided to make a visit back to Ohio and go to Wendy’s for a David Tutera trunk show.  Luckily, they had one of the exact dresses I had loved from online.

Dylan proposed on the elementary school playground where we first met as kids playing a game of tag when we were both seven years old. For the proposal, he placed a miniature replica desk containing the ring underneath a tree where the playground used to be. The desk was symbolic for the daily walks we took together as kids to Dylan’s mom’s classroom for him to use his inhaler and share a couple skittles. Somehow he managed to fit miniature skittles in the replica also, which brought back all the memories from where it first started!

Although my stepfather has been a father figure for the last decade of my life, it was important to me to still incorporate aspects into the wedding that gave tribute to my biological father. I wanted my father’s side of the family to know he wasn’t forgotten. We had my grandfather light a memorial candle in his remembrance and included a table at the reception of several photos to give tribute to him

Although our initial DIY flowers we did at Flowerman’s facility didn’t all make it, the girls at Flowerman did an awesome job recovering and just helping me get all the greenery, flowers and berries that really went with my vision.

While the groom did a lot of designing on the save the date invitations, and programs, the bride added a lot of the finishing touches.  The flowers were also part of a DIY package presented by Flowerman where some of the bridesmaids and the bride’s mom took on some of the bouquet and boutonniere designs. Additionally, all of the table décor was a custom design which took some planning and hunting for certain pieces to complete the look.
