Brian and Katie's Rustic Winter Wedding

You probably remember this amazing couple from last month when we did our last minute engagement pictures-well, time flew by and last Saturday, these two finally made it official, and despite there not being any snow, this wedding was still like wonderland! Katie and Brian have been together since they were in high school and like I've said before, these two look more in love every time I see them together. In her Matron of Honor speech, her sister put it this way, "Every time Brian walks into a room, Katie stops.." and for the time I have known them, I can attest this to be true.

The forecast had promised to rain all day, but lucky for us, the only inclimate weather we had to deal with was the wind, and I think we all handled that pretty darn great! But enough talking, enjoy some of my favorites from their day!

Maggie & George's Classic Hilton Netherlands Wedding

Hands down one of the best celebrations I have witnessed! Maggie & George spared nothing to ensure their wedding day included all of the people they love so much- friends and family from all over came to the Hilton Netherlands in Cincinnati to celebrate the joining of these two people. This was my first completely Jewish ceremony and it did not disappoint. I love learning new traditions and how they differ and are similar to each other. 

If anyone knows these two, they know these three things: 1. They don't settle: with their wedding day or with their choice of partner! 2. The people they choose to surround themselves with and their families are of the utmost importance to them. 3. They ADORE each other and are best friends. Knowing all of this, it is no surprise to me that for years to come people will be talking about this day!

Liz & Adam's Destination Wedding Lake Michigan!

I am very lucky to say I have some of the most joyful and amazing couples that I get to photograph every year. Liz & Adam are for sure one of them, as I know you will see in their images! They're playful and sweet energy is infectious and their wedding day was full of excitement and overwhelming support. Liz's Mom was there to walk her down the isle, Grandmas and Grandpas were kissed, ladies were twirled and everyone had an amazing time celebrating and eating delicious food in this super cool venue. Take a little peak into their perfect day, it was so hard to narrow it down!

Elina & Graham's Elopement and Reception in Columbus Classic Bistro

Maybe it's that I was excited to hear from an old college friend, or maybe it's that it is always a compliment when a photographer trusts you to take their photo, but I was so happy to shoot this wedding a couple of weeks ago. Whenever I get to experience a new culture or a new food at an event, I know I am going to have a great night.
