Our Lady of Victory & Dock 580 Wedding | Britney + Brandon

It was so hard to narrow down pictures from Britney and Brandon’s wedding for the blog, because there was just so much goodness to choose from. So I’ll warn you right now that this is going to be a long one, full to the brim with lovely details and wedding surprises!

Britney and Brandon are one of the most fun couples you’ll ever meet. There’s just this laid back joyfulness about them, and it’s contagious. They met at work while they were both on summer break in Canton, OH, and after a summer of hanging out at their favorite dive bar on the lake by where they lived, going to their first Radiohead concert together, and meeting each other’s friends, they ended up doing the long distance thing for three years while Brandon was at Kent State University and Britney went to Ohio University. It’s no small feat to make a long distance relationship work like that, but these two have something special. With the years of being together has come a closeness and an indescribable friendship. They still make each other laugh and just totally get each other’s quirky personalities. It has been such an honor to document a couple as wonderful as these two, and it didn’t hurt that their wedding was absolutely gorgeous as well!

Thank you, Britney and Brandon, for having us be there for your wedding day and making us feel so completely welcome! Hope you two are having an amazing time in Ireland!

Hocking Hills Wedding | Casey + Clay

Casey and Clay met while in grad school at Ohio University. He was a year ahead of her, and she admits that she had a bit of a crush on him. His class played volleyball a lot and they would often invite Casey along, which made sense because she played in college and absolutely loves the game. Well, every now and then Clay would be there, and when Casey saw that he was actually quite good at volleyball, it definitely piqued her interest even more. Last May, his class got together to play one last time before they went their separate ways after finishing grad school, and at this parting get-together, Casey and Clay struck up a conversation. When they realized that they would be living fairly close to each other, they decided that they would have to hang out over the summer, so they exchanged numbers. For their first date, they went on a four and a half hour, twelve mile hike at nearby Stroud’s Run! Whew…how’s that for a first date!:)Clay then asked Casey out to dinner, after which they sat on her front porch, talking late into the night.

After that, they had a great time really getting to know each other. And with his genuinely kind spirit, and his love of puns, he won her heart! It only took a couple months for Casey to realized that he was someone that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, which was something that she had never felt before. Since their first date involved a twelve mile hike, it was only fitting that when Clay ended up proposing last November, it was at Wayne National Forest. After a mini picnic of hot chocolate and strawberries, they got up to go for a walk around the pond that was there, but as Casey started walking she heard Clay tell her to turn around. When she did, there he was on one knee!

Crockett Crockett The bracelet that Casey wore on their wedding day is something that has become a sort of tradition in Clay’s family. It was something like Clay’s great-great grandmother’s aunt’s bracelet, and almost every bride in the family since her has worn it on their wedding day. We love sweet traditions like that!

Crockett Crockett Crockett Crockett Crockett Crockett Love Clay’s cool-gray three piece suit! He pulls it off quite well.

Worthington, Ohio Wedding | Jessica + Kreg

Jessica and Kreg have been together for so long, and they were so thrilled to finally be tying the knot and becoming husband and wife! Friends and family came from all over to celebrate with them. Family members who hadn’t seen each other in ages hugged and reconnected, and throughout the day there was a sense of joy and excitement to be together for such a wonderful occasion. We started out the day at the quirky and cute Virtue Salon in Clintonville, with muffins and mimosas as the girls had their hair styled amidst chatting and excited laughter. It rained all morning, but as if on cue, as soon as everyone had finished getting dressed and ready, the rain broke. It was glorious!:)

Homestead Park Engagement Session | Sarah + Rick

Hello!

You may remember this lovely couple from the session that we did with them last fall at Lynd Fruit Farm, and it was so much fun to photograph them again! We went to Homestead Park for this session, which we had no clue even existed, but is such a cool location and I’m so glad that Sarah and Rick suggested it! The light was absolutely magical, and with so many cool and unique spots within the park, we could have kept shooting forever. I love the different pops of color, from Sarah’s lovely yellow sweater, to the soft purple of the blooming periwinkles, and the brilliant orange of the sun setting…it was so bright and cheery!
