A whimsical summer wedding in Grove City

July 24, 2021 | Eight years ago, Jeffrey (Cripe) and Jordan Blosser met on the first day of their first class at the University of Dayton. After discovering that they also lived in the same building, the couple returned to their dorm together; their first date was a few weeks later. A friend took a photo of the couple after their date, Jordan says. When she showed her mother the picture, “her response was, ‘Jordan, that boy is in love with you,'” she recalled.

To propose, Jeff took advantage of a trip to the Jordan family’s vacation home on Lake Buckeye, which has a view of a small lighthouse. He and Jordan took their pup, Milo, for a walk to the lighthouse, where Jeff got down on one knee.

“I heard screams in the background,” Jordan recalled. “When I turned around, all of our friends and family were standing on the balcony of our lake house. We had people from all over celebrating us as we began our journey.

The Blossers – Jeff took the surname of Jordan – kept guests cool at their wedding in July with portable fans at each seat for the ceremony and an ice cream truck handing out sweet treats during the hour of the night. cocktail. “We lived in New Albany and would walk to Johnson’s and enjoy a milkshake and a scoop of ice cream,” Jordan says, so it made sense for them to serve Johnson’s real ice cream at their wedding.

Other highlights of the day, Jordan says, included the vows she and Jeff wrote for each other and the times the couple were able to spend together, alone, like the first sight. “It was special and calming,” she says. “Seeing Jeff for the first time was amazing. It all felt so surreal. It’s a day we’ve been waiting for so long. We had to postpone; our original date was July 25, 2020.” Likewise, taking portraits together during the golden hour provided a great time together, she adds.

That’s not to say partying with family and friends was boring. “The dance party was amazing!” said Jordan. « DJ Brad [of Josh Staley Productions] was absolutely amazing. … We’ve had so many guests asking for his information.
