Rebecca & Patrick Cincinnati Wedding

Another Cincinnati wedding in the books and I am so excited to be exploring more of what this city has to offer! Becky and Patrick are probably two of the kindest people I have ever met and I had an amazing time celebrating their wedding day with them! After a beautiful ceremony at St. Bernards church, we jumped across the street to take some photos at Spring Grove Cemetery. We had some absolutely gorgeous weather and had some fun taking photos throughout the cemetery. Fun fact, this is where Becky and Patrick had their first date! After the cemetery we visited Union Terminal to take some more photos! One of my favorite details from their wedding day was shot here, check it out below!

It was so great to be back in my hometown of Dublin Ohio for a wedding of some old high school friends. It was so great to be surrounded by many familiar faces that I haven’t seen in awhile. Elle & Max have been dating since the 7th GRADE!! Yes, you read that right so it was truly an honor to capture this special day for them. Muirfield Village Golf Club did not disappoint and was absolutely gorgeous for the ceremony and reception! Check out a few of my favorites below from their big day!

Lauren & AJ Wedding

I remember meeting with Lauren and AJ back while I was in the planning stages of moving to Cincinnati. We bonded instantly during out meeting and I specifically remember them talking so highly of Cincinnati. This was so comforting to me and I knew immediately we would be a great fit! These two are the most genuine sweetest people I’ve ever met and I was so happy to celebrate this special day with them. Their first look was SO SWEET and I just love seeing some happy tears from my couples! I was also lucky enough to see another one of my past couples in the wedding party which is always so much fun for me! Below are a few of my favorites from their wedding day at Scioto Reserve Country Club!

Exceptional Wedding Series VIII

I decided to start a new blog series this year showing some of my favorite things from each of the weddings I photograph. Since I love to focus on creating a unique wedding experience for each of my couples and pride myself on sharing their personalities in my photos, this blog series has been a great way for me to showcase these unique details. I am sharing something specific that stood out to me from each wedding which I thought was special to the couple. During Danielle & Brandon’s ceremony, I remember hearing how Danielle’s parents were also married in the same church. I thought this was so special that I wanted to make sure to feature it on this blog series! I asked Danielle a few questions about this!

2019-09-16_0002.jpg

When was your parents wedding day?

My parents got married on June 15, 1985. Their reception was actually at LaMalfa, too! However, LaMalfa was in a different location back then!

Did you always know you wanted to get married at the same church?

I grew up attending St. John Vianney, so it just felt right. It's right across the street from my parents' house, so we usually just walk over! When I pictured my wedding day, I truly couldn't picture it anywhere else. Father Johns, who officiated our wedding, has been a priest at St. John Vianney almost my whole life. Everything about getting married there just felt right. Brandon isn't very religious, so I'm so incredibly thankful that he was on board for a big Catholic wedding!

How did it feel knowing you were walking down the same aisle as your mother did for their wedding day?

In the weeks leading up to the wedding, we actually watched my parents' wedding video quite a few times! It was really fun to see our family members in their 80's best, and for my parents and grandparents to reminisce about that day! It was really special, and we wanted to incorporate a lot of the same elements into our ceremony. (Minus the giant mid-80's poofy sleeves on my mom's dress.)

Anything else you want to note about this?

I've grown up with a very tight-knit family, so there was so much about this experience that was so special to me. I'm also so glad that Brandon gets to experience that now, too!



Exceptional Wedding Series VII

I decided to start a new blog series this year showing some of my favorite things from each of the weddings I photograph. Since I love to focus on creating a unique wedding experience for each of my couples and pride myself on sharing their personalities in my photos, this blog series has been a great way for me to showcase these unique details. I am sharing something specific that stood out to me from each wedding which I thought was special to the couple. Whitney & Chase had a few different details throughout their day that were truly unique. A few details I noticed throughout their day were the Ring Bearer’s pillow had some family history, the ceremony arch was handmade, and Whitney & Chase brought guests onto the dance floor following their formal dances with their parents. I asked Whitney a few questions about these special details below.

Can you explain the importance of the ring bearer's pillow and why you decided to have this on your wedding day?

The ring bearer’s pillow is very special to us and our family. Chase’s grandmother had the pillow made out of her wedding dress that she wore almost 56 years ago. We were so grateful when she gave us this gift and we couldn’t wait to have something so special in our wedding to honor them and their marriage of 56 years and counting. We hope to have a long, loving, strong marriage just like our grandparents marriage. We plan to pass this pillow onto the next member of our family that gets married.    

I understand the ceremony arch was handmade by family members. Who helped build the arch and what did this mean to you two to have on your wedding day?

Our Ceremony arch was handmade by my dad (Steve/father of the bride), Chase, and two of our family friends, Kurt and Afif. We all got together on a Sunday afternoon and went over our ideas of what we wanted the arch to look like. We talked about the height, the stain, how we would have it decorated. We went over all of the little details and then we had lunch. This day was the best and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Having this handmade arch on our wedding day meant so much to us. It represented both of our families, where I grew up, and our very best friends that I grew up next to. We will cherish this arch forever. We can’t wait to have a big backyard someday where we can stick the arch and decorate it with flowers. Something we can look at to remember our wedding day for many years to come.

Where did you get the idea to invite guests to the dance floor to finish your father/daughter and mother/son dances?

Our DJ actually suggested this idea to us and we were all for it!! We have never heard of any one doing this at their wedding and we thought this could be something so special and different.

Why did you chose to have this following your special dances?

We chose to have this following our special dances because we wanted to honor our friends and family members. Our family and friends mean the world to us and having them up there with us on the dance floor was the best feeling. To look around and see all of the people we love surrounding us was just pure happiness.
