Across the country from their Portland, Oregon home, Laura and Boon planned their wedding day in the city where they'd met years before- Cincinnati, Ohio. The colors, details and look of the wedding was designed around the classic timelessness of the Groom's military dress blues and his impressive medals. It all paired beautifully with the elegant Cincinnati, Ohio venues they chose.
