A Simple, School Spirited Wedding at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio
Erica Mitchell (28 and a pediatric dietitian) and Colin Mitchell (28 and a senior planning analyst) met through a mutual friend during the first month as freshman at Ohio University. Over time, Colin and Erica developed a relationship past friendship and continued to date throughout college. After graduating, Erica moved out to Phoenix, Arizona where Colin was transferred for his job. Colin told Erica they would be traveling to San Diego to celebrate her birthday, and a couple of hours after arriving, Colin proposed to Erica with a diamond ring. Since it was the place where the first met and fell in love, Erica and Colin decided to get married on their old stomping grounds at Ohio University. The brick roads and rolling green hills set the scene for the simple, natural themed wedding day ceremony, and the reception that followed took place in the dining hall where the couple had their first date. The color palette was a reflection of the natural hues of the landscape, ranging from whites and pinks with accents of burlap. To show their school spirit, Erica and Colin had the infamous paw print of their bobcat mascot appear on invitations, programs and place cards.
