May 28, 2021 | Annie (Maglione) and Will Gutmann’s love story is a modern classic: “In millennial fashion, our story began when we met on a dating app in December 2015,” says Annie. Their first date was at Rossi, where they stayed for three drinks, which Annie considered a good sign. The couple returned to the Short North restaurant for dinner every year on the anniversary of that date, so it’s only natural that they visited on their wedding day for photos and a champagne toast. “It was such a special part of our day!” said Anne.
In another personal touch, Annie took her mother’s wedding dress to Dublin Cleaners for restoration and alteration specialist Carolyn Fang, who sized it to fit Annie. She wore the dress to the rehearsal dinner.
“As virtually any 2020-2021 couple can attest, planning a COVID wedding can be very stressful,” says Annie. “Our coordinator, Katelyn (of Aisle & Co.), and photographer, Lauren (of Lauren Anne Photography), were the most incredible support system leading up to the wedding and the day of. We owe much of our happy marriage story to their patience and planning and are eternally grateful to them.
On the big day, Annie says the most memorable moment came right after the ceremony, when she and Will took a few moments away from their guests and the wedding party “to soak it all up,” she said. . “It was wonderful to have some alone time together on such a busy day.”
