A Simple, Elegant Wedding at The Center in Cincinnati, Ohio

Kristen Savage (26) and Andrew Taylor (27) had been dating for eight years before he proposed at Ault Park in Cincinnati, Ohio and their ten-month engagement began. Their wedding ceremony took place Saint Ursula Academy in Cincinnati, where they had a traditional Catholic mass. Kristen carried a bouquet of white garden roses, ranunculus, spray roses and lisianthus down the aisle while she wore her simple wedding dress from J.Crew. “My gown was very simple, with minimal volume,” says Kristen. “The fabric was chiffon, and the neckline and back included a soft lace detail and simple sleeves.” The reception was held at The Center in Cincinnati, which was decorated in blush and gold d?cor to create a simple yet elegant wedding space. Tables were covered in champagne tablecloths with blush napkins and gold dinnerware. Candles surrounded gold vase centerpieces filled with a variety of roses, hydrangeas, peonies and dusty millers. The evening’s meal ended with a classic ivory wedding cake, filled with flavors or red velvet, orange butter, chocolate truffle and white chocolate. “Enjoy the day and don’t get caught up in the tiny details the week before and day-of,” says Kristen. “It goes incredibly fast, and you won’t even notice.”
