Jess + Aaron

Jorgensen Farms Oak Grove Wedding

Jess & Aaron’s wedding was the first one I had the privilege of documenting in 2019. What a way to kick off the year! Their wedding day took place at the always beautiful Jorgensen Farms Oak Grove here in Columbus. Their ceremony was held in a heated glass greenhouse which was so cool because even though it was a FRIGID cold February day, it still gave the vibe of being outside without having to freeze to death! You would honestly never be able to tell how cold it was that day by looking at the pictures. Partly because of the beautiful venue, and partly because Jess, Aaron, and their badass bridal party were TROOPERS and didn’t let the lack of degrees ruin a single moment of photo time! You’re the real MVPs!!!

Jess & Aaron shared a sweet first look in the greenhouse before the ceremony. You could see the smiles on their faces from 100 miles away once they saw each other! First look moments always get me. When I was taking some portraits of Jess telling her how dang GORGEOUS she looked, Aaron commented “Yeah, I knew I was done for the first time I saw her.” Okaaay stawwwp it.

Even after their first look and photo session together, Aaron still couldn’t help but become overwhelmed with emotion when he saw Jess walk down the aisle to him later that day. Whether you see each other prior to your ceremony or not, it doesn't change the emotion of THAT moment or take away from the specialness of it. It could literally be the last thing you do after a long day together, and it would still be overwhelming and momumentous because of it’s significance. It’s a life-changing walk toward each other, and trust me, that is ALWAYS felt!

Their ceremony had so many cute moments, but one of my faves was when the little flower girl decided she’d like a better view, so she plopped herself down right in the center aisle and observed from there. So funny and cute!!

Their ceremony ended just in time for golden hour so we were able to take some more photos during the beautiful sunset. Always one of my favorite times of the whole day! The reception shortly followed and it was filled with so many sweet moments. The floor-to-celing windows and gorgeous chandeliers made for such a stunning view. Jess and Aaron’s families and friends were so kind and so much fun which really made the whole day and night so enjoyable! Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Rose, for sharing your beautiful day with me!

Jen + Tim

Jeffrey Mansion & Raymond Memorial || October 7, 2017

Getting to meet so many awesome couples is definitely a huge perk to my job, and I'm especially glad and thankful I met this one! They are such an inspiring couple and their love for each other is so evident. They're one of those couples that you can't help but smile and say "aww" when you see them together :) Tim bravely serves our country and Jen is literally one of the sweetest humans I've ever met. She is so authentically kind, has such a heart for others, and look what a beautiful bride she made!! I've wanted to share this wedding for a while, but these two have especially been on my heart the past couple of weeks because Tim was recently deployed and I can't imagine how it must feel having to be separated just 6 months into marriage. Jen sent me the sweetest message last week telling me how their wedding photos mean more than ever right now while he is away and how extra thankful she is for them. That right there folks is EVERYTHING. It's why I believe in what I do and why I love what I do so much. 

Jen and Tim's wedding day was like a literal fairy tale. The girls started their day by drinking mimosas and getting pampered at Blake Rose Salon in Grandview. The guys hung out and got ready at Middle West Spirits in the Short North. They got a private tour and vodka tasting-not too shabby of a start to the day! Their ceremony was outside at Jeffrey Mansion and it was BEAUTIFUL. Their dog Chloe even made a surprise appearance in the middle of it! After photos all around the mansion, we headed to their reception which was held at Raymond Memorial in Hilliard. From beginning to end, the day was filled with lots of laughs and lots of (happy) tears :)

Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
