I feel so honored to have captured Kristin & Aaron’s wedding just this past Friday at the WatersEdge in Hilliard Ohio! Aaron has been a kind friend to me for many years! So to capture a dear friend’s wedding, especially Aaron’s, and to see him so happy…brought me so much joy!
As I arrived at the WatersEdge…I just finished unloading my gear and then it began to rain like crazy! As I photographed details it seemed like the rain would never stop! It was really windy but the clouds dispersed and then it become so sunny! As they say, rain on a wedding day is supposed to be lucky!
I can’t wait to describe some of the highlights of their day! Kristin was such a calm bride and we laughed a lot during her getting ready shots! And her bridesmaids were so fun! The genuine joy and laughter in her getting ready shots were some of my favorite!
There were also very touching moments…like when she walked down the aisle by both her brother and father. Her wedding bouquet also had a special badge attached to the back…it was her Uncle’s badge! And another favorite is that she wore her Grandmother’s cocktail ring! I love when bride’s have such meaningful momentos they bring along with them on their wedding day and it makes me happy to photograph these details for them! And even Aaron…had some special cufflinks! They were SO Aaron! Cufflinks crafted from a bourbon barrel!
I enjoyed listening to the toasts and capturing the bride and groom’s reaction to the speeches. Dinner began and it was followed by Kristin and Aaron’s first dance as husband and wife! And then cake cutting! One of my favorite parts of the night is once the dancing begins! I am always prowling around for the person with the best moves, haha!
Aaron and Kristin I am so EXCITED for you both that you are now officially married! And I wish you both many blessings along with a life filled with joy and happiness! I can’t wait to share all of the images with you, here are a few of my favorites!
