One wonderful day in May of 2016, we had the great pleasure of working with Julie and Adam . . . a match made for story telling with the very special name, Julie, at the center. Sometimes it is all about timing, much how I remember their story from our first consultation, and definitely a key element to the wedding day. Sarah of Plum and Poppy did a great job of all things punctual and pretty, along with the stunning work of Leslie White Hair and Makeup, and those sweet colorful flowers by Violets are Blue. Their wedding party (especially the men, which you don't often hear such compliments about) were funny, kind and respectful...and even quite helpful when an extra hand was needed. Julie's killer blue bedazzled shoes took on a life of their own, quietly resting among the twinkling details of the party and below the amazing chandeliers of this one of a kind venue. Oh Alexander, such a complimentary scene to the love and memories being lived to the fullest there in your midst. Julie and Adam, may those memories, that day and night, that special glow never leave you... a very happy one year anniversary.
Such a beautiful day! The Inn at Irwin Gardens is one of those perfect locations for a wedding, from inside with the historical details to outside in the gorgeous gardens. I can't imagine a prettier day for Kelsey and Jimmy to fill the house and its surroundings with their own love story. Kelsey's hair, Jimmy's smile, the glorious sun and blue sky, the soft green of the trees as the light shone through... romantic in every way. Morgan of Ashley Weddings and Events did a wonderful job of subtly keeping everything just right, from timing to flowers and the little surprises. Pomp and Bloom created stunning decor and bouquets for the day, I absolutely love working in Columbus for these masterpieces alone! And the wedding tone is always set right with Wes of Event One DJs. A little Indianapolis, a little Columbus, and a whole lot of the sweet Mr. & Mrs. stepping into married life, full of excitement, hand in hand.
I love when a long day ends with wanting to stay and enjoy more of the music! Kavita and Dan had so many important, traditional and aesthetically gorgeous details within their day, but oh how fun it was to see their full and happy hearts expressed throughout the night as the reception opened up. Happily married, happily experiencing such a special night around their favorite people, and definitely happily kicking off their shoes to celebrate. Kavita was so thoughtful with her own artistic touch, and for a wedding to plan of this size, that is pretty impressive! Beautiful bridesmaids, easy going groomsmen, loving families and an excited group of guests... nothing short of the kind of day where all the hard work pays off. And oh that rose window! Congratulations to the team who put this together, the happy new couple and the beautiful day where it all began. Now back to the music, perhaps it really is the food of love.
You don't always remember the initial meeting with your clients, especially after a wedding full of all the right things from itty bitty to grandiose. But, with these two, it was one of those first encounters where I knew something good was in store. Emotionally, romantically and respectfully, Henry and Paris are full of adoration for one another, without a doubt. Sprinkle in a lot of humor and candidness as well! I could hear the comfort and friendship within their relationship in just listening to their hopes for the big day, and I'd say it proved to be even more perfect than we could have imagined. Jodie of Aisle Ready Events did an amazing job of planning the day, every detail as sweet as the next. Paris and Henry ~ thank you for having us document your wedding day, it was truly a pleasure. Keep laughing, crying, dancing and doing that fabulous dip you do! We wish you both the very best.

Oh the sparkle! This wedding really was one of those that you don't quickly forget. What was well thought out and timed to perfection for a wedding schedule met its match with the downfall of a heavy rain, and then sunshine, and then rain... and so on. And yet, never was the weather a burden to these newlyweds. Perhaps making a trolley one of my new favorite sets for photographing, and even better when hiding out under a bridge. So romantic! The Crowne set the perfect rosy palette to start and finish Kathryn and Nathan's wedding day, and oh does their reveal REVEAL the emotions of the day. We couldn't make it to the IMA as planned, but despite the downpour, these two are walking into life together with smiles and unwavering blessings. Perhaps it will bring them luck, like the old wives' tale says. But personally, I don't think they will need it.
