Alissa & Steven {Oak Grove at Jorgensen Farms}

The Big Day

Alissa & Steve got married at one of my favorite venues in Columbus Ohio!  Oak Grove stole my heart from the first day I saw it.  The vintage greenhouse repurposed for weddings is just perfect for an intimate ceremony.  The sunlight is always beautiful inside, and it also provides such a great backup option if it rains! The newly added reception space has the most beautiful and unique lights that set the perfect mood for the first dance.  This couples calm nature, attention to detail and how they put their faith in the forefront on their wedding day made this one of my favorite weddings this year.  If you love details as much as I do then you’re gonna love this one, not one detailed was missed!

The Couple

How did you two meet?

Steve and I met at Taylor University where we both studied biology. We became close friends while in Cuenca, Ecuador on a study abroad trip, and started dating about a year later.

How long have you been together?

2 years and 7 months!

How did he/she propose?

At the end of December, Steve and I went to Dawes Arboretum for a hike, where he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. He chose a wonderful spot in front of a green holly bush with fresh, white snow in front. It was truly a beautiful celebration of our relationship as our families and friends gathered afterward to celebrate! And the ring, which he chose all on his own, is beautiful!!!

What do you love to do together?

We love to hike and enjoy the outdoors together; we love to watch dog videos and dream about owning our own dogs. Recently, we’ve loved simply being together as we’ve been dating long distance for over a year.

Love Notes

If you could pick one word that describes you as a couple, what would it be?


What do you love most about her?

Her vision. Not her literal vision, rather, the way she sees the world– in all its beauty and simple pleasures. That leaves and pine cones move in her a joy that few find therein speaks to the quiet attention she pays to all that is around her. It draws out of me a greater appreciation for people and places; it is a beauty that cannot be replaced.

What you do love most about him?

I love how kind, caring, and intentional of a friend he is. I love to watch him interact with his friends and family and to see his deep love and admiration for them. He is so intentional and so full of integrity. He is a truly honorable man.
