Tayler & Andrew – The Wedding! | Southern Ohio Photography

It’s been far too long since I shared a wedding…not only that…the last wedding I shared was one that I photographed in 2010!  I mean, photographers evolve, even if it’s a little…and I haven’t shown any of my wedding work in 2 years! Wow! I decided to put an end to that. I don’t know if I will reach back and blog every wedding we have photographed since I last blogged, but I promise I will be showing some of them.

First up, Tayler & Andrew. I knew from the moment we met at their engagement session that they were going to have one amazing wedding…and guess what? I was right :) Tayler knew the exact style she wanted for her wedding, and she pulled it off – perfectly!  The weather couldn’t have been better, the details were gorgeous…and well, you’ll see the couple ;) I was so honored to be there and I was thrilled when Tayler emailed after she saw the pictures to say that she couldn’t wait for their next event to photograph. Lifetime clients…there’s nothing better :)

Here’s a little look into their beautiful day! Enjoy!

Eric & Elena – The Wedding! | Adena Mansion Wedding Photography

I recently shared Eric & Elena’s engagement session, and shortly after we photographed that, it was time for their wedding. As usual, it was a perfect day. Once again, some of the best weather we had all year. They were married at the beautiful Adena Mansion & Gardens in Chillicothe, then the reception was held at The Madison.  If you are looking for an outdoor area in Chillicothe for your wedding, give Adena a look. They have many different locations you can choose. I LOVE how Elena & Eric choose to get married under the big trees…it was absolutely beautiful!

They planned out every detail, and it sure did show. From the vibrant colors she infused in the bouquets & hanging lanterns, to the stings of paper doves hanging from the ceremony trees…everything was just stunning. Here’s a small look into their amazing wedding day…enjoy :)

Another great first glance :)

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.

Not only did they allow lots of time before the wedding for photos, we also had a few minutes to steal downtown before they entered the reception…you know, when the light is really great!

Absolutely loved these guys. They were so great and they added the perfect mix of personality & fun to the cocktail hour.

Sneak Peak: Katie & Eddie – The Wedding! | Chillicothe Ohio Wedding Photography

I just had to share one of my new favorite images of all time.  Really.

It combines so many things I love.  Great light, beautiful wedding attire, a little shout out to the best state ever, and of course…an adorable dog. Yep, expect this to be front and center when I finally update the website ;)

Heather & Evan – The Wedding | Chillicothe Ohio Wedding Photographer

I met Heather & Evan last February at Schlegel’s in town.  We talked about their wedding while warming up over hot chocolate (well, that’s what I had…coffee & I aren’t friends).  Heather was describing all of the details she was planning into her day.  There’s a good chance that I crossed my fingers under the table in hopes that I could be there too.  The wedding sounded dreamy, absolutely dreamy.  To my delight, I heard from them soon after our meeting and was so excited for September 5th to come around.

We had the most perfect, warm day, and guess what?  The wedding was every bit as dreamy as I had expected.  Heather & Evan did a wonderful job planning all of the details of the day.  I love looking back at the pictures and remembering little aspects of the day: Heather’s anticipation while she waited for Evan to walk up during their first look, their crazy, sweet bridal party…I think I made a few friends that day, the stunning ceremony…in one of my favorite churches to photograph.  Everything about the day was perfect…here’s a little look at what I saw.

Elliott Mathis did it again.  The flowers of the day were stunning!

You know I love when the bride & groom decide to see each other before the ceremony.  It’s also soo romantic!  One of the first things I noticed about Heather when we first met was her face when she would look up at Evan.  Adorable. For example, see bottom photo left & right ;)

Evan’s a firefighter in town, and he had a couple visitors right after the wedding…loved that!

The poor couple got pounded with birdseed…I mean, really…it was everywhere!

The reception was held at The Madison in Chillicothe.  It was my first time shooting there, and I was in love!  I can’t wait for more wedding receptions here, the venue was gorgeous, the staff was amazing, and the architecture…well, you can’t beat it.

Cakes from the oh, so fabulous…Erin of the Cake Kitchen!

Evan & Heather now share an anniversary with his Grandparents. They did the sweetest dedication for them.  Heather was also wearing Evan’s grandmother’s pearls that she wore on her wedding day.  The whole thing was so beautiful…and yes, I may have teared up…just a little ;)

I don’t know where to start on the reception dancing.  Hands down it was the best dancing reception I have ever been to.  I do believe it was a combination of 2 things.  One: Amazing guests that have crazy awesome moves. Two: the most amazing DJ’s I’ve encountered thus far. (plug time)  Rick & Dawn May (info below)…will here on out be the premiere DJ’s for Chillcothe and surrounding areas (in my mind)…they are so talented…and so great at what they do.

As a photographer, I am going to let you in on a secret…we aren’t big fans of the gimmicky dances.  It’s true. Dollar dance, generation dance…YMCA…ugh.  However, Rick & Dawn made them so fun!  The dollar dance contained fast paced current songs, and it was not only entertaining, but funniest thing I’ve seen in a while.  Oh, and the hats below where a huge hit during the YMCA.  They played the perfect mix of classics & down right great dancing songs.

So just know, if you are going to ask me a suggestion for a DJ…I will only have one answer.  Rick & Dawn May of May Audio Visual.  They are the best.  Oh, and I might beg you to hire them, so I can work with them again. :)

You can’t end a wedding without a little Journey. It’s just wrong not to.

Heather & Evan, you two are the best! Thank you so much for choosing me to spend the day along your side, capture memories that would help you remember this day for years to come.  I am more honored & blessed than you may ever know.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
