Greg Gilmore and Elicia Douglas met in 2009 while working for the Canton Police Department. Greg was a K-9 officer, and Elicia was a dispatcher who also ran a part-time cupcake business. They share a special bond due to their high-profile professions. Greg proposed to Elicia on their daughter’s birthday in December 2014. Greg is definitely not the traditional man; Instead of getting down on one knee initially, he had pretended that he fell and badly injured his knee. When Elicia came to help, he was on his (uninjured) knee with the ring in his hand. He thought it was humorous, whereas Elicia, not so much.

Their wedding took place July 11 in her parents’ beautifully landscaped backyard, and their reception was held in downtown Canton at the Canton Police Patrolman’s Association Hall. The couple share a love for Ohio State University. Their wedding theme was scarlet and gray. Elicia says she was the crazy bride who made 150 Ohio State-themed cupcakes for her own wedding. Owning Cutey Patooty Cupcakes & Event Planning, Elicia couldn’t fathom ordering cupcakes from someone else and taking the risk of not getting exactly what they wanted. Everything about their day was absolutely perfect.

After the ceremony, they went downtown for photos. The historic buildings gave their photos a beautiful flare. It was sunny and 85 degrees as the 125 guests filled the room at the reception. They danced the night away and ended it with a sparkling send-off.
