Elizabeth and Matt have the kind of gentle, enduring love that people write songs about, and it was such a joy to see these two become husband and wife this past Saturday in their hometown of Beavercreek, Ohio. Their story is so sweet: they met the summer before they entered high school, and started dating their sophomore year, quickly becoming best friends and realizing that they were meant to be together. They ended up attending different colleges, and spent several years long-distance as a result, so this made their wedding day extra sweet. You could not imagine two people more excited to get married; smiles literally never left their faces all day!
Elizabeth and Matt began the day by getting ready with their respective bridal parties. After Elizabeth put on her gorgeous wedding gown, she met up with Matt at a park, where they shared a First Look (so sweet)! Then we had a fun time of taking pictures with their amazing bridal party before heading to the ceremony, which was held at Aley United Methodist Church. Afterward, they celebrated with a reception at Country Club of the North, complete with a popcorn station, delicious food, and many sweet moments with the loved ones who came to help them celebrate.
Elizabeth and Matt, I am so honored to have been a part of your day! Getting to capture love like yours makes me so grateful. Wishing you many, many years of the happiness that your wedding day held!!
