Every week we feature a few from our latest issue.
After years of searching for the right people, Chloe and John Truitt met online. Within a month, their burgeoning virtual romance brought them together in the real world … when Chloe finally agreed to a date. Almost a year later, John surprised Chloe with the perfect suggestion: a romantic dinner on his back patio with her mother’s sweetest words and ring.
With all the craziness, their big days managed to go smoothly! Though Chloe and John were married in Florida in a private residence that was of special importance to the couple, they couldn’t wait to celebrate with all of their friends and loved ones at their home in Columbus, where they had their last and greatest reception.
“The reception day was honestly like a dream,” says Chloe. “It was actually both days! But after we got married, there was a lot less stress on the day of [Columbus reception]. ”
