Toledo Wedding // Real Bride Olivia

Bride and groom on their wedding day at Nazareth Hall in Toledo

After being together since age 13, our gorgeous bride Olivia tied the knot with her husband Noah in October of 2022 at Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, Ohio, just southwest of Toledo. Olivia shared that they celebrated their 10 year anniversary of being together the week of their wedding!

After learning that Olivia had been with Noah since middle school, we just had to know how he popped the question!

“November 14th, 2020: I get to Noah’s parents house after a baby shower and I see rose petals leading up to the deck. There I see Noah standing there, singing me a song he wrote. At the end of the song, he gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him. Afterwards, we went inside his house to all our friends & family there with it all decorated with pictures of Noah & I together throughout our years of dating. It was truly one of the best days ever!”

Don’t worry, we got a little teary hearing about that sweet proposal too. We’re always so honored when brides to be choose us as their wedding dress destination, and asked Olivia how she chose to come to our little slice of heaven! She shared that her wedding photographer and fellow #ljmrealbride, Emma Dee Photography, recommended us to her, and for that we’re so very grateful!

When the big day finally came, Olivia looked absolutely stunning in her Rita Vinieris gown, and she said that her favorite part of her wedding day was the first look she shared with her now-husband.

“I was so excited for him to finally see my dress I had for about a year and a half before the wedding day! His reaction to seeing me in my dress was perfect.”
