Over the past few months it has been so incredible to see Kendra and Casey grow together as a couple. The minute I met Casey I knew that he would take great care of Kendra. He is the kind of guy who although he may not say a lot, he means every word! Kendra is a lot like me – we love to take care of others. She always goes out of her way to make sure others are happy and have everything they need. And sometimes we forget that we need and deserve that attention and caring too. Casey treats her like the queen that she truly is and I am so thankful for that. Their love for God, each other and their families inspires us all! Kendra and Casey I am honored that you picked me to photograph your wonderful day! I have so many favorite moments and I am so glad we can relive the celebration through your photos. From the groom smiling in the rain as the ceremony started to the joy at the announcement of husband and wife – your ceremony was truly unforgettable! The reception dances were so emotional with quite a few happy tears shed. And the sunset – is there any better way to end the day than with a kiss of color in the sky? Your love story is exactly what I prayed for Kendra when you went through darker days. Your partnership is truly a gift! May God bless and keep your marriage and as the Irish say “may the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

This wedding celebration is more than the pairing of a husband wife, it is the start of a new chapter for this adorable family. Melissa read vows to Ella and promised to love and care for her during the emotional ceremony. You can tell that Ella loved being included and already has such a special bond with Melissa. My favorite part of the day was watching the rain clouds move away and the sun peeking out. Our photo time in Eden Park had to wait a few minutes but it was worth it! We had just enough rain for good luck and plenty of time for photos! And The Bell looked incredible for the fun reception and the dance floor was full all night! Melissa, Matt and Ella we wish you three all the very best! Thank you for inviting us to document your special day.

A big thank you to these awesome wedding proffesionals who made it incredible!

Some love stories are just meant to be. Amy and Nick met at a small group mixer for their church and somehow made it into the same bible study group. And the rest as they say – is history. It reminds me of how my husband and I met and how sometimes you just never know how the next person you meet my change the course of your life! These two are so cute together too. Their wedding day was filled with so much joy and laughter. And even though the ceremony started a few minutes late it also meant we had the most perfect golden hour lighting for photos with the couple. My favorite part of the day was seeing everyone circling the couple and serenading them to the song “Fools Rush In.”
 
“Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand,
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you”
 
Amy and Nick we wish you two all the happiness in the world! Thank you for inviting us to document your love story! And a big thanks to their incredible family, friends and wedding professionals for all of their help. Jeff Clarke from Party Pleasers and City BBQ did an amazing job!

Since the first time I met with this couple I just knew we would have so much fun together on their wedding day! From the surprise cookie favors to the I Spy games on the tables – it was so exciting to see everything come together. Their guests loved the view masters with custom reels made from photos of the couple. Each reel had a combination of baby photos, photos of the couple and a recent engagement photo. Some of the younger kids had to be shown how to use them but boy did they get into it once they knew how to use them! Since the couple have cute nieces and nephews they included them in so much of the day. My favorite part of the wedding had to be the emotional ceremony. It was just beautiful! This couple is so sweet and caring and they have such supportive family. To see their loved ones together was perfect! And then the party began! Everyone had a blast dancing and playing! Jenny and Michael – what an incredible day. We are so very happy for you two and wish you all the very best in life! And a big thanks to their family and friends for making the day so great!

Those shoes! It is safe to say that I  am kind of obsessed about the bride’s shoes! She told me how hard they were to find online and the hunt was worth it. After some fun getting ready photos with the girls (and trying not to cry with Kayley’s mother) we headed to the church. The guys were great sports and were ready to start the ceremony. My favorite part of the ceremony was watching Dan’s father speaking about the couple as he officiated. After the ceremony it was amazing how the sun came out just in time for some great photos on the edge of the church property. Then we headed to the reception. My favorite part of the day was exploring the golf course with the couple. Kayley and Dan spent summers working at the Beavercreek Golf Club and it was fun to hop on golf carts and for them to show us around. When we returned to the dance floor the dollar dance was a big hit! The couple got to dance with family members and friends. Before we knew it the reception grew to a close and the couple had a fantastic sparkler exit. Congratulations to this wonderful couple – we wish you two all the very best in life! And a big thank you to their awesome families and wedding professionals who made the day amazing!
