Jamie Price-Copeland wore this dress upon the occasion of her marriage to Trent Kanode on July 3, 2010 at the Park of Roses in Columbus, Ohio. It was an outdoor ceremony and the bride’s dress reflects the relaxed atmosphere of the event.
Jamie was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1985. She is the middle daughter of three girls born to Kathy and Frank Copeland, both of whom worked for Worthington City Schools. Jamie comes from a long line of Ohio State University Alumni. Both of her parents, her sisters and her brother-in-law all received one or more degrees from OSU. Jamie herself graduated from OSU in 2008 with a BS in Human Development. She currently is enrolled as a graduate student in the College of Social Work at OSU.
Trent was born in Delaware, Ohio. He is an only child and also graduated from Ohio State. Jamie and Trent met as undergraduates while working as servers at a local restaurant.
Jamie purchased her dress at La Jeune Mariee, a small bridal boutique that opened in 2004 in Worthington, Ohio. The bridal boutique relocated to downtown Columbus, while the Worthington location now provides attire for the bridal party. Jamie chose her gown specifically for its “twirl factor”. She had loved twirly dresses since she was a young girl and this dress appealed to her right away. Jamie’s mother, Kathy Copeland, is a devoted volunteer in the Historic Costume & Textiles Collection and it is through her that Jamie’s dress has been lent to this exhibition for the ‘Something New’ section.
