Sometimes when people live in one area for most of their lives they don’t realize how others may see it. I’ve spent most of my life in Bainbridge, Ohio. It’s a two stop light town in the middle of Southern Ohio. I’ve always liked living here, but only recently I have begun to LOVE it. Yep, I love Bainbridge…don’t judge ;) It’s a special place, but it took me a while to realize it. If you don’t believe me, come on out and I can show you some pretty amazing places. Now, I’ve never lived in Chillicothe, however, I’m there all the time (it’s just a short 20 miles or so away). When I look at Chillicothe I don’t think of it as anything special. Or I didn’t.
Neither Stacy or Luke are from Chillicothe, they both moved here for their work. Their wedding is one of the highlights of my year…why, you ask? Well, I watched their wedding day unfold in a city that I am so familiar with, yet it seemed so different. They love this town and it showed during their wedding day. There were few locals in attendance and for most, this was their first time to Chillicothe. Justin & I left saying how they made Chillicothe seem so ‘cool’, for lack of a better word. Every part of the day was filled with love & style…the best combination on a wedding day ;)
I am thankful to Stacy & Luke for helping me open my eyes and see the usual in an unusual way. I am blessed to live where I am and I am soo thankful for ‘neighbors’ like them ;) Be proud of where you are from, it’s probably not as boring as you think!
The ladies got ready at the gorgeous Guest House Bed & Breakfast.
Couples take note: see how both the Bride & the Groom have impeccable style…don’t forget about the Groom…it’s his day too. Luke looked awesome in his suit!! And don’t get me started on Stacy! So Beautiful!!
It was July 4th weekend, so we had to get a little patriotism in there somewhere ;)
I don’t think I can accurately express my love for this photo…or her shoes. My, oh, my.
This is my Pop John’s car (my grandpa)! My dad even drove it, so fun! See girls…if you need a resource, just ask!
Is this random or what? We even have camels in the most unexpected places in Chillicothe…
I know I am writing a lot, but I just have a lot to say…sorry ;)
The grooms brother-in-law is an illustrator for Disney…yep, Disney! He did all the paper products. I was oohing and ahhing over fonts and that perfect color combination all day long.
The beautiful Adena Mansions & Gardens.
You *cannot* go wrong with bridesmaids dresses from Anthropologie. I promise.
She had the best details…see the straw above…it’s those little things that get me excited. And that little white vase, I collect those…crazy!
Amazing cakes by the ever so wonderful, Erin, of the Cake Kitchen.
Stacy & Luke, thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer. It was an honor to document your day and watch the love you have for each other as you began such an amazing new part of your lives. So happy for you!!
