An Urban Industrial Wedding at Strongwater Food and Spirits in Columbus, Ohio

Emily Walz (30 and a veterinarian) and Jillian Zientek (29 and a veterinary oncologist) met at veterinary school. The pair fell in love with the urban-rustic feel of the courtyard where they hosted their DIY wedding blooming with floral-inspired stationery and potted herbs. Jillian incorporated a pop of color with blue peep-toe heels, while Emily’s dress featured a lace topper that was created using lace from her mother’s wedding dress.The brides held lavender-filled bouquets as they strolled down the aisle to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” before saying “I do.” Postceremony, the newlyweds made their grand entrance to “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, and acoustic tunes filled the air during a dinner of their favorite Cuban fusion food. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, they offered up a variety of sweets: ice cream and doughnuts from their favorite local spots.
