Alex and Mariah were true high school sweethearts with having started dating the beginning of their freshman year. And after 10 years together and many of life’s milestones including graduating college and buying their first home, Alex + Mariah got engaged!

They went to spend the day in Stillwater, a place where Alex + Mariah both had never been to but always wanted to go to. They started the day with going for a walk by the river. Once they got about half way across the life bridge, Alex got done on one knee and Mariah cried happy tears of joy!

Mariah and Alex kept their decor simple with floating candles, greenery and signage/table numbers rented from Klein & Co. Their decor went great with the bridesmaid’s black dresses and groomsmen’s black tuxes!

Winter Wedding at Woodhaven



The Venue

Alex and Mariah decided they didn’t want a super long engagement and decided to get married about 1 year after getting engaged. They chose their Venue, Woodhaven, because of how simple it was and how it would go well with their black and white wedding. They went with a winter wedding and Woodhaven was the perfect place for that as it has a separate ceremony, cocktail hour and reception space! Woodhaven also offers two spacious getting ready rooms, of which one of them overlooks the ceremony space.

"We used Hanna for our day of coordination and she was AMAZING! From the first day we met with her, we knew we could trust her in making our day run smoothly. She was always quick to respond and was willing to help in anyway she could. Her monthly to do checklists were a huge help to make sure nothing was forgotten! We also had her decorate for us and she made our vision everything we wanted it to be plus more.

The month, week, and day of, she was in contact with all of our vendors which was a huge stress relief leading up to the day. Because of Hanna, we could enjoy every second of our day without worrying about anything. I would recommend her and her team to any and everyone!"
