Ali & Luke | Classic Columbus Wedding at The Annex at 801

This gorgeous, classic wedding was an amazing way to start off my 2019 wedding season. After having a pretty quiet off season, it was great to be back out there doing what I love most!

The simple black bridesmaids dresses paired with a whole lot of greenery made for the perfect modern and classic wedding day look. Ali & Luke shared their first look on the steps outside along the columns of the Ohio Statehouse. It was supposed to rain this day, but we were able to luck out with just some overcast skies.

A short and sweet ceremony took place at Grace Fellowship in Upper Arlington followed by a giant dance party at the Annex at 801. We knocked out all of the photos we needed before the reception so Ali & Luke were able to enjoy cocktail hour and to mingle with their guests. My favorite detail of the day was when Ali & Luke put on Mr. & Mrs. aprons and served dinner to their guests! I have never seen this before and thought it was such a cool idea! They also probably had the best first dance I have ever seen, which was so much fun to photograph. These two sure know how to get down on the dance floor! I had an amazing day with these two and can’t wait to deliver their gallery soon!

Below are the amazing vendors who helped with Ali & Luke’s special day along with some of my favorite photos!

Tiffany & Johnathan | Eden Springs Farmstead Kentucky Wedding

I had the opportunity of knowing Tiffany and Johnathan since my first year of business. We first talked on the phone about wedding plans about two years ago! It’s so fun to be a part of a couples journey for so long leading up to their wedding day. I met Tiffany & Johnathan at their new house down in Lexington Kentucky for their engagement session. I was so pumped as soon as they said they wanted an in-home session in their new house, AND THEN they said they wanted to finish off their session at a brewery! If you know anything about me you know I LOVE unique photoshoot opportunities and challenging my creativity, so I was all in. This ended up being one of my favorite engagement sessions to date and was one of my first publications. The natural love these two have for each other is so easy to capture on camera and makes my job so much fun! I was so excited to photograph these two again on their wedding day. It was just as I expected it to be, perfect. I was so happy to celebrate this day with Tiffany & Johnathan and I can’t wait to finally share some of my favorite photos! Check out the amazing vendors below who were able to make this beautiful day happen.

The Vue Columbus Wedding | Leah & Jack

I remember back when Leah, Jack, and I met for our very first meeting. We connected over mutual friends and instantly knew we would be a good fit for each other. The excitement Leah shared about having me as her photographer was so comforting and only made me even more excited to shoot their big day.

I always think there is something special about getting ready in the comfort of you own home. I met the girls at Leah's parents house, which had a gorgeous sun room that was perfect for getting ready photos and all of the little details. While Leah and her bridesmaids were finishing up their hair, I started off the day shooting some gorgeous details consisting of my all favorite pastel colors. The dusty blues and blush colors are one of my favorite wedding trends right now. 

I really do love shooting weddings in a new location. I love the challenge and excitement for finding a perfectly lit location for portraits. After shooting many weddings around Columbus, this is the first time I had the opportunity to photograph a reception at The Vue. This was a beautiful space filled with the perfect mix of rustic and modern decorations. It is also in a prime location downtown which allows the opportunity to take a variety of portraits and even sneak away in the evening for some gorgeous sunset photos.

Here are some of my favorites from Leah and Jack's big day! Below are the amazing vendors that all made this day come together.

Pinnacle Golf Club Wedding | Kassi & Ben

Kassi and Ben found me back when I was first starting up my photography business about two years ago. We immediately knew we were a perfect fit for each other. They had a longer engagement which only made me even more excited for their wedding day, because I had grown to know them pretty well. I scheduled a few sessions with them, photographed their family photos in the fall, and even ran into Kassi at her Bachelorette Party! 

You might not be able to tell it in these photos, but man it was a warm one outside. We made time for sunset photos which worked out perfectly because once the sun set, it finally cooled down a little for us. There was also a surprise visitor at the reception for all of the Buckeye Fans. Brutus made an appearance and got the party started out on the dance floor. Everything about this day was planned out perfectly. These two were laughing all day and shared the sweetest moments together. You can tell how happy they make each other and you can see it in their eyes in these photos. Watching Ben have tears streaming down his face as his bride made her way down the aisle was almost too much to handle! I was teary eyed the whole ceremony and so happy to celebrate the evening with them!
