Congratulations, Ciara and Grant! You have so much to celebrate. You got engaged in December, and Ciara, you graduated from OSU during one of the most tumultuous times in history. Of course, I always knew you could do it — you’ve been working with me and my family for the past four years, so I know how incredible dedicated you are.

Thank you both for letting me be a part of this momentous occasion. The Park of Roses and Alum Creek were absolutely perfect for your engagement! We laughed all night long with both of you and your moms. Both the night and the drinks were bubbly and made for times like these.

Your futures are so, so bright, even brighter than the sunsets and the sparklers we brought, and your relationships are so dear and precious. You’ve already made it through the hardest parts, and I can’t wait to see how you continue to celebrate your lives together.

This is just the starting point of something phenomenal. I’m so happy that I got to take pictures of the two of you before your wedding, so soon after your engagement, that you can see how you grow and change and work together. All of the big moments in your life — engagement, graduation, future dental school completion, and whatever else you make of your amazing lives — need to be celebrated like this: with family, friends, and plenty of fun. And after you both get married, I hope you let me be a part of it so I can be a part of the love you bring to the world
