Taylor + Alex's Engagement Session

It’s certainly feeling like winter in Ohio right now! Taylor + Alex’s engagement session was at Homstead Park on a very chilly morning! Alex is a friend of mine from college and we were in the same sorority. I was so happy when she contacted me about doing their photos!

My favorite part of their session was that they brought their dog, Moose. This cute guy made their photos even more adorable! You can tell just how much they love their pup. He is even going to be the ring bearer at their wedding next year! Enjoy my favorites of this cozy November session below!

Jordan + Maggie's Wedding | Downtown Columbus + The Ivory Room

Jordan + Maggie’s wedding day was definitely a favorite of mine! This fall day was full of fun and sunshine. This couple chose some of my favorite local vendors, so I knew every detail would be so pretty! State and Arrow florals, Cheer Up Letterpress stationary... just to name a few!

Maggie and her girls got ready at the Hilton in Downtown Columbus, which is perfect for photos! Jordan and Maggie’s first look was on the glass skywalk over High Street, and we continued around the lobby and atrium for bright, indoor portraits.  We all jumped on the trolley and ventured around downtown before arriving to St. Francis of Assisi for their beautiful Catholic ceremony.

The Scioto Mile riverfront was great for post-ceremony portraits before heading to The Ivory Room to celebrate! This was my first time at this venue and the view of the city was just beautiful! Jordan + Maggie’s entire day was so much fun! Enjoy a few of my favorites below!

Ben + Whitney's Wedding | Oak Grove at Jorgensen Farms

Ben + Whitney's wedding at Oak Grove was incredibly sweet, emotional and intimate. Their morning ceremony was beautiful as the sunny glow shined through the greenhouse. They said their 'I do's' to one another and made vows to their daughter, Gracie. My goodness, there was not a dry eye around! The images truly show just how loving their ceremony was.

There were so many sweet moments that made it an unforgettable wedding for us as photographers! Whitney surprised Ben during their first dance by singing the first part of the song. I LOVED this moment! Also, their reception was early in the afternoon and was full of tacos, churros, laughs and joyful tears! Speeches were open to all of their family and friends which was such a great idea for a smaller, intimate wedding.

It's a funny story how I met this couple. I was photographing an engagement session last Fall when I first noticed Ben + Whitney popping champagne and celebrating their engagement. Ben had proposed just minutes before we saw them at Frank Fetch Park. After my session, I walked over and offered to take photos of this moment for them. Ben and Whitney were ecstatic. We exchanged information and I sent them their gallery of images. They booked me instantly and we all agreed that our paths were meant to cross for a reason! It's such a fun and special memory that started our relationship and I am so thankful to have them as one of my Susie Marie couples!
