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!

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!
