Tall Timbers Banquet and Conference Center | Dana & Mike | Mak Rabbitt Photography

Tall Timbers Banquet and Conference Center in Reynoldsburg, Ohio was the location for Dana and Mike's beautiful outdoor wedding.  We had the perfect venue and weather for this August 6, 2016 Wedding.  We started the day by popping over to Dana's house, where we took a couple of photos with Dana and her girls in their matching rompers. Tony also couldn't resist taking a shot of Dana next to the American flag, proudly displayed from the house, as Mike is currently in the US Coast Guard.

We arrived at Tall Timbers, where Dana and her girls put on their makeup. Before they got into their dresses, we took them to the beautifully decorated arbor, where the ceremony was to be held. They purchased a specially made Coast Guard unity candle for their ceremony.

Prior to the ceremony, Dana and Mike shared a prayer, while maintaining their wishes not to see each other. They stood side-by-side and held each other's hands, with a door between them.
