While most couples who were affected by Covid pushed their Cincinnati weddings back, Annie & Corey opted for a different plan. Knowing they still wanted to get married this year, they bumped their would-be New Years Eve event up to October, switched to an outside location, and had a small number of guests. This intimate affair at Hyde Park Country Club might not have been what they originally had in mind, but they did a beautiful job of flowing with the changes 2020 has brought – all the while staying focused on what matters most: Each other.
Annie & Corey were engaged near their previous home in Chicago at Millennium Park. Corey surprised Annie by popping the question on their fourth anniversary. During the on-set of the pandemic, they made the decision to escape the city & spend time with Annie’s parents in Cincinnati. It isn’t often that you can boast about what a wonderful time you had with your soon-to-be in-laws, but Corey tells the story differently. During their months stuck at home together, they spent every night laughing – having possibly too much fun with Annie’s parents. Such a blast in fact, that they decided to uproot from the windy city – and purchase a home in the queen city.
On a chilly Friday evening – in October instead of December – Annie & Corey said their “I do’s.” Surrounded by those closest to them, proving that love continues to light the way – even this year. I thoroughly enjoyed my time getting to know this sweet duo – and their families – and was honored to document this special day for them. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs.!
