"Arrestingly beautiful"is a fitting description of Morgann & Aaron's August wedding celebration. This playful couple planned a special ceremony and reception filled with personal touches that aptly reflected their personalities, their personal style and their professions.
How they met: Morgann, a competition cheerleading coach, once joked to a competition cheer parents who works as a police dispatcher that she should fix her up with a "hot cop." So ... she did. Morgann and Aaron, a Lima City Police Officer, went on a blind date...and kept dating, and dating. A year later they were engaged to be married.
Not pictured: Aaron in his police uniform "arresting" Morgann in front of his cruiser for their engagement photo.
Details: Who says cops can't have fun? Aaron and his groomsmen, half of which are police officers, donned their favorite super hero shirts for a photo op in front of their workplace: Lima's very own Hall of Justice building.
Once they arrived at the reception site, the wedding party and guests (which was also heavily represented by police officers) were greeted with stacks of donuts that served as centerpieces.
For fun, the couple asked Kyle (a local barber who plays Barney for church events and parades) to pose as Barney and "arrest" the newlywed couple as they left the church.
"He blew his whistle and yelled to disperse to the crowd," Morgann's mother Kelly shared with us. "It was especially fun because the church was filled with police officer friends."
The flowers: Morgann's elegant textured bridal bouquet featured white and 'Cafe au lait' dahlias, lisianthus, snapdragons, wax flower, veronica, scented geranium, lace flower and ferns. Her bridesmaids carried high season mixed flower with a focus on yellows and touches of red which included heliopsis, dahlias, Rudbeckia 'Henry Eilers,' solidago, celosia, verbena bonariensis, ammi, and dill flower.
