Ali + Geoff tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony at the beautiful old farmhouse and grounds of Benham’s Grove in Dayton, Ohio. These two have such an amazingly balanced relationship. Ali is quiet and creative and Geoff is outgoing and charismatic, they compliment each other impeccably. I couldn’t help but notice similarities in their relationship and mine and my husband’s and it was such a sweet thing to see. When I first arrived Geoff asked me to direct any questions or concerns to him (which I always do anyway) so that Ali would have as little to worry about as possible and could enjoy the day. It was a small but incredibly thoughtful gesture that truly illustrated the attentive way he takes care of her. Ali is the head apparel graphic designer for Jessica Simpson in New York and it was clear she put just as much thought and artistry into her day as she does as work. Everything from the guestbook to the programs, menus and signs were stunningly designed and crafted. They even brought their cat, Lemon, all the way from their home in New York to share the day with them! I was so honored to be a part of their day.
