Jordan + Anna's Wedding | Stambaugh Auditorium

I am SO excited about this blog post! Darren and I have been looking forward to this wedding for over a year! Our friends Jordan + Anna tied the knot last weekend in Youngstown, Ohio. This wedding was definitely a great start to my busy month of June! It's always so much fun to photograph for a sorority sister and the entire day was a blast!

Jordan + Anna's wedding was filled with elegance and romance. I absolutely loved the touches of blush and champagne shown throughout every detail. Their ceremony took place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel and their reception venue was at Stambaugh Auditorium. Both locations were full of history and character.

This couple had a FUN reception. Everyone danced throughout the night right up to their sparkler exit! I am just so happy for these two and I can't wait for them to move right next to us in New Albany in just a few short weeks! Congrats to Mr. + Mrs. Ricks! Scroll through to see my favorites below!

Jon + Laura's Wedding | Firestone Country Club

Where do I even begin with this gorgeous day?! Last weekend, Darren and I headed to Akron to capture Jon and Laura's wedding! The ceremony was at St. Paul's Catholic Church and their reception was at the Firestone Country Club, one of the most beautiful golf courses I have ever seen! This world-class club is well-known to golfers across the globe!

 The wedding party portion of the day is always a favorite for me. I LOVE working with large wedding parties who are energetic and fun and this group definitely fit that description! We all hopped on golf carts and explored the huge grounds! The bridesmaids wore floor length blush dresses and the groomsman were handsome in their grey suits. Blush has been a very popular color this year at weddings! It's elegant and classy plus photographs so well!

I was in awe of the stunning details when we stepped into the reception room. From the large floral centerpieces, to the incredible cake, it definitely made an impact the moment their guests entered. They even had an ice sculpture!!

Jon and Laura had a beautiful day! I am so thankful that being their photographer has given me the chance to get to know them. They truly are two of the sweetest people and it was a joy working with this couple! 

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Cheyney! I hope you have enjoyed viewing your gallery while on your honeymoon!

Kevin + Stephanie's Wedding | The Center Cincinnati

Last Friday, Darren and I traveled down to Cincinnati for Kevin + Stephanie's rehearsal dinner. Stephanie and I joined the same sorority Freshman year of college and she is one of the sweetest girls I know! We had so much fun prepping for their wedding and getting to hang with the wedding party the night before!

Where do I begin with this stunning wedding?! Saturday we were up bright and early to start photographing the most gorgeous details. From the mimosa bar, to the yummy macarons and Belgium waffles, the huge bridal suite at The Westin was the perfect getting ready location for the bride and her maids! The bridesmaid's reaction to seeing their best friend as a bride for the first time was PRICELESS. Bring on the tears! I had so much fun spending hours with the girls before Stephanie's first look with Kevin. 

Now..the first look with Kevin was JUST as priceless. Kevin anxiously rode the escalator and at the top is where he first saw his soon-to-be bride. It was the sweetest moment. He was beaming and said "LOOK! THIS IS MY WIFE!" 

The rain came down as the bridal party jumped in the limo and headed to the Cincinnati Music Hall. My bulk order of white umbrella's sure did come in handy and made for some cute rainy shots! The ceremony took place at their church and I truly felt the excitement as they stood in front of their loved ones to say their "I do's." After the ceremony, we headed to our favorite location, the same bridge we went for Kevin + Steph's engagement photos!

The suspension bridge in downtown Cincinnati is gorgeous and is my favorite color! We somehow managed to get the entire bridal party out in the middle for a few shots. It was amazing that the traffic and rain stopped for a few minutes!

The reception took place at The Center which Darren and I both loved. Again, the beautiful blush and navy details were so stunning for this springtime wedding. We ate amazing food from McHale's and danced the night away! It was fun to see sorority sisters and share in this special day.

Congrats to Kevin + Stephanie! Have an amazing honeymoon!
