I am so glad that Christina and Chris will have their coffee table book to relive all the special moments of their day. From a fun group photo with Santas in fountain square to a winter wonderland theme reception, the day was a great one! What a beautiful celebration at The Bell Event Centre and downtown Cincinnati. This book is sure to be a family heirloom for many years.

PottingerPhotoStory

Memories That Will Last a Lifetime posted 3/8/2013

“My husband and I started working with Brenda in March or April 2012, when she took our engagement photos, as soon as we saw them we were in love! Brenda’s pictures really are so natural and fun, you aren’t posed like statues. She makes you feel comfortable and she always seems to be able to capture the magic of a moment. She takes the time to get to know you and it shows in her work. We loved working with Brenda so much that we asked her to be part of other major moments such as maternity photos and newborn pictures of our son. We have really enjoyed working with her and have loved the memories she helped us to capture. Brenda would be the first person I would recommend to anyone I know who wants priceless pictures taken.”

Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dayton Ohio

When Kellie asked me to team up for a styled photo shoot at her beautiful venue I couldn’t say no! The Crowne Plaza in Dayton has received many updates and I couldn’t wait to see what she had planned. Don’t you just love the amazing view at night? The lights from the other buildings and the cars below made for an exciting backdrop.

Here is what Kellie had to say about the style of the photo session:

“What’s a girl to do when you have a 360 degree panoramic view of the city on the top floor of Dayton’s finest hotel? Well drape it in things that sparkle that’s what!

In partnership with Prime Time Party Rental we designed this over the top intimate wedding with awesome details. The purple linens complimented the evening sky perfectly. Mirrors lined the tables to help reflect not only the city lights but candlelight as well! A simple ceremony space paved the way into our cocktail room designed to allow guests to enjoy cocktails with a gorgeous view of the city. Signature drinks carried the purple theme through with cranberry juice, pomegranate, and a little splash of blue curassow!

A few added touches such as the beaded napkin rings and tie backs add a touch of elegance. For texture we added mercury glass votives for a different look on the table! You can never go wrong with the beautiful Chivari chairs from Prime Time and double stacked chargers to add texture and a little extra touch of shine. Pair this sparkly and sleek event with a great pair of purple pumps and handful of calla lilies and what you’ll have is a perfectly purple beaded nighttime wedding dream!

When planning your city wedding, think of all the things around you that inspire you and you’ll have an event that sparkles just like this one!”

A special thank you to everyone who helped make the event such a big success!

Welcome Stacey and Jim

Category: Misc. | March 6th, 2013

Please welcome our newest couple Stacey and Jim! I am very excited for their wedding this summer. We are going to have fun at Eden Park taking great photos with the couple and their bridal party. Their ceremony and reception will be at one of my favorite locations, The Bell Event Centre. I can’t wait for their engagement session later this year when we include their motorcycles!
