Casual and Customized Downtown Columbus Winter Wedding

Sydney and Tim Deems married on Dec. 18, 2021, at North Bank Park Pavilion.

Dec. 18, 2021 | Sydney (Poehler) and Tim Deems really, really like winter—especially the month of December. It’s when they first met while waiting tables at a restaurant. “After a year, I confessed my feelings for Tim before he was about to move across the country,” Sydney says. “He stayed, and we knew that was it for us!” They were so sure, in fact, that they chose their first dance song—John Mayer’s “Heart of Life”—that very month. 

That fateful confession happened on Dec. 18, 2017, she says; three years and one day later, Tim proposed while enjoying the holiday lights at the Columbus Commons. After, “we went back to our apartment, where he had planned a surprise engagement party with my friends and family,” Sydney says. “It was absolutely perfect.”
