I am so excited to share this wedding day of one of the sweetest couples I've known, Emily and Chris! At our first consultation, Emily and I immediately bonded over our mutual love for organization and cute office supplies (haha!), and it has been SO much fun getting to know her and Chris better through their engagement session and the wedding planning process. Their love for each other shows itself in a deep understanding and friendship, and I couldn't have been more honored to witness this special day as they joined their lives together.
Emily and Chris's ceremony and reception took place at the Vault in downtown Columbus, and they got ready with their bridal party at the Residence Inn, which was right across the street. In Emily's suite, the morning was filled with laughter, getting ready playlist jams, hair and makeup getting done, and growing excitement. I absolutely adored Emily's two piece wedding gown and sparkly flats, and the bridal party's attire was so unique as well -- each bridesmaid wore the same color of dress in all different styles, and Chris and all his groomsmen each wore a different patterned tie, along with superhero cufflinks!
Emily and Chris were so intentional about making moments to really step back and focus on each other and the meaning of their wedding day. They exchanged letters with each other and read them in the course of the morning, resulting in both laughter and happy tears. Once they were dressed and ready, they met at the Ohio Statehouse for their First Look, and let me tell you -- their reactions were the CUTEST! Afterwards, we had so much fun taking pictures on the Statehouse grounds with their amazing bridal party, and then it was back to the Vault for the ceremony, where they made their vows and became husband and wife! The evening was a blast of a celebration, filled with lots of hugs, dancing, and great food.
I love it when brides and grooms become like friends, and Emily and Chris, I certainly felt this way about you. Thank you SO much for the honor of inviting me into your wedding day and allowing me to capture these memories for you! Wishing you all the happiness in the world!!
