Mr. and Mrs. Trenaman

Danielle and Hunter's winter wedding day was filled with their love for Christ and the spirit of Christmas. Danielle and her 14, yes 14, bridesmaids started the day at a huge, beautiful house in downtown Cincinnati. The amazing wood embellishments in the house popped in the background against the matching flannel bridesmaid pajamas. The groomsmen got ready at an AirBNB in Over the Rhine and it was equally as stunning.    The ceremony was held at Christ Church United which was decked out in Christmas decor and had a huge vaulted ceiling. Danielle and Hunter said, "I do" standing next to a huge christmas tree surrounded by a packed out sanctuary of people. The reception venue was so unique, The Mess Hall at Fort Thomas has been renovated to hold large weddings and facilitate the perfect wedding night.    The wedding details were captured by an amazing team. Hunter Rogers was the wedding coordinator and did such an amazing job, she inspired Danielle to pursue doing the same thing to help other brides! The video was captured by Morgan Price who always catches the sweetest, tear-jerking moments and I was lucky enough to take these wedding photos for Danielle and Hunter who are so near and dear to my heart!

Mr. and Mrs. Adekoya

Morgan and Justin had the perfect fall, barn wedding on October 20th, 2018. Farmstead at Shawnee Trails provided a great location for both the ceremony and reception. It was a chilly day, but I don’t think you can tell. The night ended in a stunning sunset that gave the bride and groom photos they will cherish for a lifetime.    Morgan started the day with mimosas and a gorgeous floral robe that complimented the florals her grandmother put together by hand! The brides wedding gown had a sweetheart neckline and sheer fabric with lace florals up to her collarbone. The dress was purchased at Meant to Be Boutique in Lexington, Ky. The bridesmaids wore maroon gowns that had sheer lace from their knee to their feet, I love the uniqueness of them!    Family means so much to Justin and Morgan and that was evident throughout the day. Morgan got embroidered handkerchiefs for all the special women in their lives and many tears were shed! She looked forward to the dance with her dad for such a long time and it was everything Morgan dreamed it would be! Justin and Morgan ended the night being celebrated out by all their loved ones.

Mr. and Mrs. Bright

The Bright wedding was a day full of color and celebration! From the bridal bouquet to the horses and stables, Ben and Laura had every detail planned perfectly. The bride had a bouquet full of dull pinks, warm oranges, and deep reds and maroons. She wore a beautiful lace, form fitting gown with a birdcage veil in her hair.    The bride and groom got married under a breathtaking four post canopy, at the brides family farm. Small vases with flowers adorned the canopy and hung over them as they said, "I do." My favorite part of the day were the bride and groom portraits after the ceremony. From their “tiny house”, Laura’s beautiful horse and the stunning sunset, what more could I have asked for on a wedding day as the photographer.    The couple's barn wedding was a classy take on the rustic look. It was decked out with greenery and small paper hangings all around the canopy. The caged lanterns and paper lanterns glowed all night until the couple ran out amongst the sparklers. I hope you all love this bright and color wedding as much as I do.

It’s not everyday that Cats fans from across Kentucky get to join together for a wedding! July 14, 2018 Scott and Cassie tied the knot in true Kentucky proud fashion. The ceremony at the beautiful Tates Creek Presbyterian Church sanctuary was followed by a reception at Kroger field!!    When they first started dating, Cassie quickly noticed Scott’s patience and his heart for all people. He fell in love with her caring heart and passions. They knew they’d be together forever after their first hang out. What started as studying, turned into a day of fun and memories.    On their wedding day, Cassie wore a beautiful Stella York gown from Twirl. My favorite photos are seeing the dress in action as Scott spins her around! Scott saw her for the first time that day when she walked down the aisle and tears were definitely shed! They wrapped up the wedding at the Woodford Reserve Room at Kroger field. DJ Warren peace was on the mic and everybody spent the end of the evening on the football field, which was so a fun and unique experience.

Mr. and Mrs. Hughes

August 10th, 2018 was predicted to be a rainy, hot day but the weather couldn't have been more perfect for the Hughes special day. The bridesmaids woke up in their matching lemon shorts and sparkly gold tops ready to get the day started. Hayden and Marlee, having known each other for almost 4 years, were reminiscing on going from friends, finances, to husband and wife in just 8 short months.  The ceremony venue was decked out with 26 people in the bridal party! The bridesmaids wore shades of purple from Lulus and the men wore navy suits and bowties. Hayden's tie complimented the theme with a purple floral pattern. Marlee wore a dress from the Steel Magnolia that was form fitting, lace, and had tons of pearls and sparkles. Each bridesmaid carried a bouquet of dried lavender, the smell was amazing!  The reception had beautiful, tall orchids from Rainbeau Orchids and gold sparkles incorporated everywhere. Drinks and desserts were offered and the dancing was definitely a requirement. As Hayden and Marlee said goodbye to their friends and ran under the sparklers, Hayden's dad mistakenly followed, such a funny ending to an even funner wedding.  This wedding also has a very special place in my heart because it was my very first wedding that was published in a magazine, it was published in Bridal Bliss Magazine.

Mr. and Mrs. Campbell

Andrew and Breanna met in 2010 during their sophomore year of high school. They started dating toward the end of their junior year when Andrew FINALLY asked Breanna on a date, which was to go to the homecoming dance together. Andrew proposed by surprising Breanna by taking her to the restaurant where they always celebrate anniversaries. At the end of the meal, the waitress brought out a dessert plate with the date and a heart on it written in chocolate. He then got down on one knee and proposed. He even had a friend show up to take pictures (good job on the pictures Andrew). It rained on and off on their wedding day but it didn’t stop them from being so joyful thru their whole day. What a special time we had with Andrew, Breanna and their most favorite people.  Also as a side note this wedding was on September 22, 2018 and that day every year is always special to me because that’s my husband and I’s anniversary. We got married September 22, 2012.
