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. Something that stood out to me for Martha and Preston’s wedding day was the theme around birds in all of their reception decor. I loved this and thought it went so well with the venue they chose! Check out some of Martha’s responses to a few questions I had below.
What is the reason behind the bird theme?
Once we decided on the Audubon center as our reception venue I decided to continue the bird theme. We found bird cages that we thought would be great centerpieces, and we had a lot of fun decorating each one with a different bird. We loved the idea of each table being unique. Being an art teacher, I really wanted to add an art element so I painted birds for all of the table numbers.
What significance did this have and why was it so important to incorporate on your wedding day?
The birds we used were all native to Ohio birds. My husband and I love hiking the metro parks (one of the reasons why we choose our venue!) and we thought using birds you could find around Ohio would be a fun touch! It all just worked really well with the educational aspect of the Audubon center!
What’s your favorite bird?
We both love the hummingbird!
