Columbus, Ohio | Intimate Backyard Wedding

Merrin & Shane

 

I've been excited to blog Merrin & Shane's wedding since I shot it back in October! I've been busy busy busy and I am finally slowing down enough to be able to finally share what I've been shooting! So stay tuned, because there's more I CANT WAIT to share with you...including MY wedding photos!!! :) 

Merrin & Shane met just over a year ago and it was love at first sight because now they are Mr. and Mrs. Francis! They had an intimate ceremony in their backyard here in Columbus and they had their reception right inside their own GORGEOUS home. They shared the sweetest first look before their ceremony. It was like right out of a movie; Shane was waiting at the bottom of their stairs and Merrin opened her bedroom doors and walked down to him. How awesome is that?! Such incredible moments right in your own home. I love it!!

They exchanged their personally-written vows in front of their close friends and family and it was so special. Tears were shed by many, including their softie photographer ;) I just loved how personal their wedding was. In their own backyard, incorporating their families in the ceremony, and dancing their first dance together right in the center of their own living room. I think it's the coolest thing when couples make their wedding days so personal and reflective of their relationships. 

I hope you all enjoy some of my favorite photos from their day! Merrin was so beautiful and they both were just beaming from ear-to-ear all day :) A happy couple like this one makes for a happy photographer! Cheers to Merrin and Shane Francis!
