Rustic and Ethereal Wedding at The Bowery

Cupid's arrow struck Nina and Dustin in this dating app success story.

Nina and Dustin's marriage at The Bowery

Wedding Date: June 8, 2019

While Nina Roberts and Dustin Ottman were matched digitally through dating app OKCupid, age-old enchantment infused their love story. Cupid’s arrow struck Dustin immediately, and after months of dating, Nina was also sure about the stirring in her heart. From their first kiss at Milwaukee’s Company Brewing in a snow-blanketed street, to a charming frog making an appearance at their rehearsal and ceremony, to Nina’s desire for her florals to look “as though the doors blew open and flowers floated in,” their union was pure magic. Dustin proposed with an heirloom ring, and for their wedding, the couple gathered their friends and family to join them as they said their “I do’s.” They incorporated their love of home brewing in the décor, mixing empty beer bottles with vases for floral centerpieces and distributing bottles of their own homebrew to guests as wedding favors. After dancing the night away, the couple honeymooned in Iceland for 11 days—where they enjoyed a beer spa! Think warm beer baths, cold brews and happy hearts in an ethereal land.
