This Everal Barn Wedding in Westerville Ohio was among the loveliest weddings I have photographed! It is such a joy to be able to join a couple all the way from the beginning of their wedding planning, their engagement session and finally their wedding day! Not only was the white barn venue absolutely beautiful…but Deise and Mateus are one of my sweetest couples! Joining in their wedding day is truly something I feel so blessed to have been a part of! Deise and Mateus are from Brazil and speak Portugese! I was so excited to learn more about their culture and wedding customs! I couldn’t wait to be a part of it! Every part of their day had special meaning and I really enjoyed that!
The day started at a hotel to capture some getting ready photos of Deise. The special part was that she got ready with her Mother and future Mother-in-law. They were so attentive to Deise and she looked SO perfect- even I had tears in my eyes. I watched as both Mom’s said a prayer over Deise. I could really sense and feel the emotion of the moment even though I couldn’t understand the language. They prayed for Deise’s marriage and their future as husband and wife! As I was leaving the hotel, I captured a lovely smile on Deise’s Mom’s face as she looked in the mirror at her gorgeous daughter! What a beautiful moment!
Upon arrival at the Everal Barn, I was so impressed with the beauty and decor of the reception space! I was already excited about Deise’s pink wedding! The Portugese ceremony was as lovely as could be and included a beautiful bubble exit. The reception was filled with so much excitement! In place of a bouquet toss there was a bouquet inside of a beautiful box with a lock on it! Each girl chose a key and one of the keys opened the lock for the winner of the bouquet!
I couldn’t be happier to be a part of your day- Deise and Mateus! Many blessings to you and may you marriage be every bit as beautiful as your wedding day!
