Our wedding in North Central Ohio was absolutely perfect! It started off by having all of our friends and family join us for an adventurous ferry ride to Put-in-Bay (we had our rehearsal dinner at the Chicken Patio). The next day, we got married at a quaint little garden called Schedel Arboretum & Gardens. It was the end of May and the flowers were blooming and the weather was perfect. We then had our reception afterwards at Mon Ami and where we all shared stories and danced the night away in the wine cellar. It was awesome!

Columbus puts on some of the best festivals! Every year in July all our friends get together and head downtown for the Jazz & Ribs Festival. You can bring your own food or get a great meal from any of the rib contest competitors. It's always a relaxing weekend of listening to good music, eating good food and enjoying friends.

My husband Dan and I were able to experience an Ohio weekend when we were given a gift certificate to the Colonel Taylor Inn Bed & Breakfast in Cambridge, OH. What a delightful time we had! Innkeepers Jim & Patricia Irvin were the perfect hosts as we relaxed in this Victorian-style mansion and enjoyed a romantic get-away, complete with afternoon refreshments in the parlor, a wonderful massage in our room, a delicious candlelit dinner in the dining room, a great night's sleep, and of course, Jim's signature apple french toast the next morning! A stay at the Colonel Taylor Inn is a must for those discovering the charm of Cambridge, OH.
Louisiana is considered the sportman's paradise, but I think Ohio has it beat. With populations of Pheasants, Ducks, Whitetail Deer, Quail, Woodcock, Squirrel and countless other game species, Ohio really is the heart of it all.
Non-resident fees are low, and opportunities are abundant. Ohio's Division of Wildlife does the best job of any wildlife office in the country. I had a great year, and even got to experience Ohio's reputation for big bucks! Thanks to Ohio's well-managed deer herd, I'm now a member of the Buckeye Big Buck Club! For a truly memorable experience wildlife watching, Bluegrass Island in Maumee, Ohio, part of the Toledo Metropark system is a don't miss sanctuary for whitetail deer and a variety of other species.
