You may recognize this amazing couple from their downtown Columbus Engagement session last month. Over the course of a few months, I really got to know and love Keyona and Chad! One of the great joys I experience in my work is the rare invitation I receive time and time again to experience the deep love two people can share. I absolutely love these two! You see, I not only couldn't wait to capture this happy day for my new friends Keyona and Chad, I was also thrilled to be at the same location Jonathan and I had married just four years prior! Jonathan joined me to photograph the event on our Anniversary weekend and I couldn't have felt more blessed. The entire day, I felt completely at peace and completely in love.
The Bride and her happy bridesmaids spent the afternoon preparing for the big day in a gorgeous sunlit room at the The Columbus Renaissance Hotel. Keyona's classic hair design was completed by Rachael Donnell and makeup artistry by Nicole from Mukha Spa.
I think I may have stopped breathing for a second when Keyona put her gown and final details on. The gown was made for her!
Steps away from the Taylor Mansion lies the green acres of the Frankin Park Conservatory- a quiet, shaded tree lined setting for the couple to share their "first look".
Check out this super cute and unique clutch from Substance, a boutique in the Short North. I am a big fan of searching for special details for your wedding in non traditional places.
The historical Taylor Mansion is truly one of my favorite places to shoot. Detail heavy and adorned with pretty flowers, it's bright ambiance simply inspires happiness.
Beautiful floral creations and catering by The Taylor Mansions own, The Upper Crust.
One of my favorite details for the day was the playful cake display created by Bakery Gingham. I may have had a piece and it may have been unbelievably, ridiculously delicious :*).
The neo-soul ensamble, Necessity, kept the people dancing beneath the warm, glowing lights all night.
This is one of my absolutely favorite images from their day. Captured by chance just at the right moment, I think this image speaks volumes of the bond Keyona and Chad share.
