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!

A Trip to Charleston | March 2016

Last week, Darren and I traveled to South Carolina to visit Charleston for the first time! It was just as beautiful as I imagined it would be! I could not stop taking photos as we walked the streets of downtown and Darren loved all of the unique architecture around every corner. Each building had so much character and each had a story to tell. 

Other than the adorable streets of Historic Downtown Charleston, we also loved hanging out at Folly Beach! The streets were lined with vintage cars and the beaches had sand dollars and shells everywhere! This beach had cute little shops and the pier was a popular spot for spring breakers! 

During our time there, we also checked out Seabrook Island (where the Notebook was filmed!) and drove through Kiawah Island. These locations were full of spanish moss and southern beauty! We had to make a stop at Angel Oak too, which was a huge tree that is just about 1,500 years old! This trip was definitely full of color and sunshine. Enjoy my favorite shots below!
