Chelsea and Colby’s Wedding near the Bob Evans Farm in Rio Grande

Chelsea and Colby’s wedding was so wonderful. The ceremony was held at one of their family’s friends house and it was so beautiful. The grounds looked a lot like Monticello and we didn’t have a drop of rain the entire day. I was floored to see how great this property looked. There were endless amount places for portraits. I was like a kid in a candy store. I am so happy to share with everyone the photos below.

Dionne and Stefan's Wedding at Columbus Athenaeum

Dionne and Stefan are a great couple. I photographed their very unique engagement session last year and I was very excited to photograph their wedding at the Columbus Athenaeum. The stairwells and elevators were perfect for photos. Their first dance on the stage was magical. We started the day at the Athenaeum as I photographed everyone getting ready. I got the dress hanging on the door photos done and checked on the guys down the hall every so often to get a few photos while they got ready. The ceremony was very nice and the reception was right across the hall. It was easy on the guests and my self for photos. We had plenty of time to get all the portraits done and arrive on time. Below are a few of my favorite photographs from this Columbus Athenaeum wedding.

Shu and Matt's Oglebay Resort Wedding

Oglebay Resort in West Virginia is a great place for a wedding. The gardens in the area are so beautiful and the mountains in the background are so picturesque. Even the staff at Oglebay are so helpful. I can not talk this place up enough. You just have to visit it. It was a pleasure traveling over there to capture Shu and Matt's wedding. They are such a cute couple. We started the day at La Carezza de Cielo Hair with Shu, her bridesmaid and her mother. We then traveled to Oglebay at the Wilson Lodge. The view from the ceremony site was breathtaking! The rolling hills in the background where a perfect backdrop to a wonderful wedding. Below are just a few of my favorite images from the wedding.
