The Newport Aquarium has to be one of my favorite venues in Cincinnati. It is such a unique venue and the guests always love exploring during the cocktail hour. And when the giant shark tank is the background for the night – even better! Vanessa and Brad planned most of the wedding from out of town and everything turned out so wonderfully! From the flowers to the reception linens to her amazing dress – everything was stunning. My favorite part of the night had to be the sentimental speeches. Brad’s Dad welcomed Vanessa into the family and it was a tear jerker. The first dance was such a joyful moment and even Brad’s niece approved. Vanessa and Brad we wish you two all the happiness in the world. Your wedding was incredible and thank you for inviting us to document your day! And a special thank you for their top notch vendors who made everything so inspiring to photograph!

Sunflower bouquets, pumpkin centerpieces and leaves – that is how this beautiful wedding incorporated the fall season into their décor. Their ceremony was at St. Catharine of Siena Parish where the couple met as kids attending the school next door to the church. The architecture is just beautiful too! After a few photos with the couple and families we headed to their reception at The Farm. The bubble entrance and first dance had to be my favorites during the reception. That and watching everyone have fun dancing! Alyssa and Andrew we wish you two all the very best! Thanks for making your day so much fun!
