Jenn and Patrick at Scioto Mile and Schiller Park
In late April we scheduled engagement photos thinking the weather would be warm enough to be “comfortable” without jackets for short bursts of time and the spring flowers would be in full bloom and trees would be lush with fresh buds. Ohio, as usual, had its own agenda. It was cold, oh so cold. We made best of it and took some fun photos with their dog Chessie.
We decided though that would meet again when it was warmer and take some more photos and met up in early may for a session at Scioto Mile.
The weather again tried to scare us away but the evening erupted into a fantastic sunset. Shades of purples and oranges helped create some of my favorite images ever!
Irongate Equestrian Center Wedding
Scott & Danielle
Scott and Danielle were married at Irongate Equestrian Center, in Hartford. Thier wedding was held inside the converted horse barns on a magnificently hot July day, one of the hottest days we had all summer! The weather however didn’t keep us from enjoying the beautiful barn that has been renovated into a fantastic event center.
Danielle and Scott Engagement Photos
SchIller Park, German Village Columbus Ohio
As mentioned in earlier blog posts, Ohio’s weather hasn’t cooperated lately and finally we had chilly but sunny spring weekend to meet up at the beautiful Schiller Park in the Historic German Village for Scott and Danielle’s engagement session. We took a stroll through the park as they told me about their first date, the renovations of Danielle’s old house as they plan to sell it and prepare for the merging of households. These two love birds laughed so easily together and smiled so much it was infectious.
We are going to have so much fun at their wedding!
Scott and Danielle’s summer wedding will be held at the gorgeous Irongate Equestrian Center.
German Village Wedding Surprise
The Engagement Party
Hayley and Shawn have been together for many many moons. They have a beautiful daughter, Charlotte, whom I have featured many times over the past year.
Back in January, Hayley messaged me about a different type of photo session; an engagement party! They invited around 90 guests to attend a luncheon announcing their engagement at Lindy’s in German Village. They also had a surprise in store for everyone.
Hayley and Shawn got up in front of their friends to thank everyone for coming, and they were so happy to have all of their friends and family there, but that they also had a special announcement; they are all guests currently at their wedding!
A SURPRISE WEDDING
Hayley’s Dad was flabbergasted to say the least. Her mom happily ran around hugging guests out of excitement. They invited everyone to enjoy their cocktails and drinks as they went to get ready for the ceremony.
Hayley had a dress waiting for her, as well as Shawn having a suit to put on. She did a first look for her father, and her mother as well.
They were married on the upstairs patio at Lindey’s in German Village.
Jeff and Roby are a couple of awesome people who love each other with such ease. Robys bridesmaids prior to the wedding were all wearing “team Roby” jerseys. The weather thwarted their outdoor wedding, but it put us all into the barn which was so lovingly decorated by friends and family over the days prior to the wedding. Their warm colors and sunflower theme warmed the hearts of everyone at the wedding. 30mph winds werent going to hold back this couple from having the wedding of their dreams!
