Taylor Anne Mountz & Zachary Ramsey

Taylor Anne Mountz and Zach Ramsey met at a Halloween party neither had been keen on attending. The only ones not in costume, the two hit it off, and three years later, on November 23, 2013, the actress/yoga teacher and the mental-health professional pledged their love in front of friends and family at Hickory Street Annex. The boho-chic evening, awash in jewel tones and accented with gold, had an ethereal atmosphere and ended in a shower of sparklers.
