Paige + Josh

Columbus, Ohio

Remember when I thought I’d have aaaaall the time during my “off season” to do aaaaall the things, like blog every week? Lol. Hi beginning of March and first blog. Sigh, better late than never, right?!

So I thought there was no better wedding to share first than Paige & Josh’s intimate celebration that took place in October. I LOVE this couple’s story. I’ve found myself telling it to random people who don’t even know them because it’s so dang cute. Paige and Josh didn’t have to date long time before they knew they were the ones for each other. When they found out that Josh was going to be deployed for a year, they knew they wanted to get married before he left. They planned this small (but incredibly beautiful!) wedding ceremony for the week before he left, and they are planning on having a full reception with all of their friends and family when he returns.

Their engagement story is one of my FAVES! Paige has always loved Tiffany & Co. and has always dreamed of wearing a wedding ring from there. One afternoon, Josh took Paige to Easton to walk around…or so she thought! She of course wanted to walk by the Tiffany store that’s there, so he lead her in that direction. The Tiffany building has a small window in the front where they always have some sort of jewelry display set up. As they were “casually” walking by and talking, Paige glanced into the small window and to her complete surprise noticed that there was a photograph of her and Josh displayed, along with a little blue box and a shiny ring! Josh proposed, and Paige’s dream of getting to rock her own Tiffany & Co. ring (and getting to marry the love of her life, nbd) came true! Nice freaking job, Josh, amirite?!

Their wedding day started with a short but oh-so-sweet ceremony at a cute little venue called Zinnia here in Columbus. They exchanged personal vows in front of their closest friends and family and officially became Mr & Mrs! Afterwards, we headed down to Griggs Reservoir Park for photos. I had such a blast with them and their hilarious bridal party. All in all it was an awesome day to celebrate such a cool couple!

Paige and Josh, I absolutely loved being a part of your sweet day! Only a few more months until you are reunited in person and can finally enjoy newlywed bliss together!!!

Jorgensen Farms Wedding

Megan + Matt

A Spring Wedding at Jorgensen Farms

I met these two almost a year ago when we first met for coffee to talk about their wedding and I was excited for their day to arrive ever since. Megan is one of those people who instantly makes you feel like you've been friends for years when you first meet her. Right away we were laughing and joking, and I was so excited to have her and Matt booked as my first 2018 wedding! Megan has amazing style and her favorite color is yellow, so naturally Jorgensen Farms was the perfect choice for their venue :)  Her and Matt are SUCH a great couple. They have that real, sweet, almost tangible kind of love between them and I felt so honored to be the one to capture it for them on their wedding day. Matt's reaction every time he laid eyes on Megan all day was so incredibly cute. They had a perfect, warm, sunny April day for their wedding, which was such a miracle considering it snowed 2 days before AND 2 days after!! We even scored a pretty sunset, which is always one of my favorite times to sneak couples away for a few more shots. Thank you Megan and Matt for sharing your gorgeous day with me, I loved every minute of it!

Emma + Aaron

 

 a sweet and intimate ceremony by the water

I went to high school with a sweet girl named Ashley, who luckily I have stayed in contact with! I have had the pleasure of photographing her ever-growing family over the years and I can't wait to meet baby #3 soon! After high school, she moved to England for a few years and while she lived there met and became friends with Emma. (She also met her husband there!) Eventually Emma ended up meeting her brother, Aaron, and the rest is history!

They got engaged and Emma made the big move to the U.S. They decided to have a small and intimate ceremony in a friend's (beautiful!) backyard in my hometown of Mansfield! It was a gorgeous fall afternoon and they exchanged their vows in front of their closest friends and family. It was so special. I am so happy I was able to capture it for them. I also snuck in a few maternity photos of Ashley since she is expecting and looked so darn cute! :)

Enjoy the many favorites from the day!

Grand Barn at The Mohicans | A Romantic Woodsy Wedding

Kacey + Nick

I met these two about a year ago when we met for coffee to talk about their wedding. Right away I noticed that they were a fun, outgoing couple, they absolutely adored each other, Kacey had such a big, beautiful, contagious smile, and their wedding was going to be AMAZE. It was held at the BEAUTIFUL Grand Barn which is tucked way back in the middle of the woods of the Mohican State Park. I arrived and felt like I entered a fairy tale! It was right up my alley with huge trees and tons of greenery EVERYWHERE! Y Oh, my heart. I could not wait to get them out and around for their portraits! Just you wait and see all the awesome places we found :)

The barn itself was also so gorgeous. Kacey and the girls were getting ready up in the main loft and the guys were getting ready in a treehouse nearby. How cool is that?! Dave and I arrived in the afternoon and while I photographed Kacey's dress and pretty details along with her and her girls getting ready, Dave photographed Nick and his groomsmen getting ready. Everyone was so fun and sweet! The groomsmen were a trip! They were hilarious and had me laughing all day. Don't miss all the great photos I got of them dancing :)

After they put the flower crown on her, this little flower girl looked in the mirror and LOVED the way she looked! SO CUTE!!! (Don't we all secretly feel this way when wearing a flower crown??)

Columbus Groom

After Kacey was in her dress we went outside and took her bridal portraits and the bridesmaids photos. She was stunning! Her long lace dress and floral crown made me so happy. All the bridesmaids looked lovely as well. So much pretty!

Columbus Bride

I had so much fun shooting Nick and his groomsmen! They were so funny and such good sports despite the crazy heat we were enduring! I love a fun bridal party-it makes wedding days even that much more awesome :)

After portraits we got ready for the ceremony. It was held outside on the back patio of the grand barn. It was hot, but so so worth it! When Kacey came down the aisle Nick's reaction was so sweet. He was beaming ear to ear and he sighed so sweetly when he saw her :) They exchanged their own vows which is always so special to hear.

Columbus Ohio Wedding

Right after the ceremony and family photos we took some fun shots of the bridal party then I was so excited to take their bride & groom portraits all around the amazing venue. Oh man, I could have photographed them for hours. Between the amazing scenery and super happy, in-love couple, it was pretty much perfect!

After pictures we headed back to the beautifully decorated barn for the reception. Everything from the toasts to the dancing was so fun to photograph. I especially loved capturing all the adorable kiddos and the hilarious groomsmen break it down on the dance floor :) 

City BBQ catering! YUM!

City BBQ catering! YUM!

Kacey changed into a second dress and it was that awesome golden hour so we snuck away during the dancing for a few minutes to grab a few more portraits. Sunset photos always end up being some of my favorite images from wedding days! Golden hour is a glorious thing. 

Congrats Kacey & Nick, I hope you are enjoying marriage and being newlyweds! It was an absolute pleasure to capture your wedding day!
