DIY Spring Wedding in Downtown Columbus

May 21, 2021 | Dayton residents Alicia (Kokomoor) and Evan Lynd first met through the H2O church at Wright State University in 2018. “She was the cool girl from out of town who would come to visit friends who moved down to Dayton. We’d see each other at events, weddings, whenever she was in town, always excited to see each other and catch up,” Evan remembers. Alicia eventually moved to Dayton in August 2019. “She had all the boys going crazy about her, but by some miracle, she decided to go on a date with the one without any hair,” Evan says with a laugh.

From there, Evan wasted no time. He popped the question on Christmas Eve 2020 while opening presents at the home they now share. And just shy of five months later, the pair married in a wedding full of DIY elements and other personal touches. Evan says the food was one such personalized component.
