The Blackwell Hotel Wedding with Jeff and Christy

I had the pleasure of photographing Christy and Jeff wedding two weeks ago. They live in Kentucky and we had our first meeting though Skype. I showed them the albums and I enjoyed talking to them. The ceremony and reception was held at The Blackwell. The Blackwell is a beautiful venue located on the Ohio State University campus. Their catering is one of the best in the city. We started the day with Jeff and got a few great photos of him with his groomsmen on the patio. I added some lighting to make it a little more dramatic. The portraits came out fantastic. I also did the same with Christy. We then had their First Look. I put Jeff in the middle of the ceremony aisle and had him turn around to his bride to be. His expression was great. We also had tome to get the family portraits out of the way. They also had their son there and he was smiling from ear to ear. We then went to the OSU stadium for the fun portraits. I always like the portraits of the entire wedding party laughing out loud. I always get great expressions from it. The ceremony went great with Damian King with United Marriage Services officiating it. It was nice to get the portraits out of the way so Christy and Jeff could enjoy the cocktail hour. The Blackwell quickly transformed the ceremony site into the reception in no time. As you can see below the ballroom looked great! Congratulations Christy and Jeff!

The Blackwell Hotel Wedding

The Blackwell Hotel is the best place to hold an OSU wedding. The hotel sits right off of Tuttle Park Place and Woody Hayes Dr in the middle of campus. The patio is beautiful for weddings and portraits. The OSU football stadium is with in walking distance from the hotel so it is also great for OSU fans that would like their portraits outside The Shoe. The Oval is also just a short walk from the Blackwell if you are looking for campus portraits. I can't say enough that I really like this OSU wedding venue. The architecture and the staff are top notch.

Ashley and Scott's OSU Blackwell Wedding

Ashley and Scott are a great couple. I loved all the details that they had at their wedding. They had an Asian theme to their wedding and it looked gorgeous. I also liked that the Blackwell hotel is right off of campus. Every thing was with in walking distance and worked out perfectly! We started at the Blackwell hotel for getting the hair and makeup done. We then traveled to the outside patio for a few portraits before they saw each other. The ceremony was beautiful and not a cloud in the sky. After the ceremony the entire wedding party went to the Ohio State Football stadium also called The Shoe for a few wedding portraits. Then we went to the Oval in the center of the OSU campus. The wedding party and I came back to the Blackwell for the reception with an elegant first dance to surprise all their guests. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding! Thanks Ashley and Scott for having me be a part of your wonderful wedding!

Lindsey and Robert OSU Wedding at The Blackwell

Lindsey and Robert are a great couple and I loved how fun every second of their wedding was. We started at Robert's grandparents house to get the getting ready shots of Robert and his groomsmen. We then traveled to the Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Broad Street to see Lindsey get ready. We then traveled to The Ohio State University Football Stadium (The Shoe) to get some great photos on the field. We walked to the Ohio State University Oval to get a few more photos before we went to The Blackwell Hotel for the reception. I loved the locations Lindsey and Robert picked from the OSU stadium to The Blackwell. The food was great. Some of the best food I have had at a reception. Lindsey and Robert had their first dance and the party got started along the Brutus the OSU mascot getting everyone out of their seats and cheering. It was awesome!
