Courtney & DJ got married at Rawhide Ranch, a hidden gem in Nashville, Indiana, on September 24, 2016. It was a destination wedding, since Courtney & DJ live in Cincinnati. They made a weekend out of it, staying at the ranch with family and friends. It was an unseasonably hot day, but as the sun went down, it cooled off in time for the reception.
They both got ready at separate places at the ranch, and met under a shaded area for their first look and photos. Their ceremony was held behind the barn, where they exchanged personal vows that they wrote and sealed a box with love letters and wine for their 5th anniversary.
The reception was held in the barn, where they kicked off the night with their first dance, dinner, and toasts. The couple shared a special wine for the toasts that had been in the family for many years. There were a couple of fun surprises that happened at the reception. They had family perform the song “You Are The Best Thing” for them, which was a special surprise. DJ also pranked Courtney, when during the garter removal, he pulled out a baby doll from under her chair. It was really funny! The night continued on with lots of dancing and fun.
Congratulations to Courtney & DJ!
