The Columbus Athenaeum Wedding

Laura and Nick

I first photographed Laura and Nick at Highbanks Metro Park in Columbus for their fall engagement session. Nick proposed at Highbanks so it was a special touch taking them back to this metro park for their couples’ portraits. You can view their engagement blog post here.

Laura and Nick were married at St. Christopher Catholic in Grandview, Ohio. They chose to have a first look where they see each other for the first time before their actual ceremony. It allowed them to share this special, intimate moment in private. Nick kept staring at his bride; totally in awe of her beauty. They were all smiles as they hugged – so excited for their big day ahead!

During the ceremony, I captured Laura and Nick sharing loving stares at one another. You could tell they were so full of love for one another and ready for their next chapter to begin as husband and wife. I just love their little flirty glances at each other.

They chose the most colorful, gorgeous florals which offset the bridesmaids’ neutral dresses. Each groomsmen wore a different colored tie which really added a different look than your usual, all-matching groomsmen. Laura’s bridal gown had the most delicate, lace features. And she chose timeless jewelry to accent her dress without overpowering it. We had such a blast capturing their bridal party portraits at the Ohio State Stadium in Columbus. This group was up for all my fun ideas including the bridesmaids tossing their bouquets in the air!

Like their attire, the reception was decorated in neutrals with pops of bright colors like pink and green. Held at The Columbus Athenaeum, their reception was full of great-tasting food, touching speeches and endless dancing through the night. They ended the evening with a fun, sparkler photo together, which I shared at the end of the blog post. It’s important to me to capture all the important details of your day, from the intricate features on your wedding gown to your first dance as husband and wife.

Here are my favorite images from Laura and Nick’s Columbus wedding!
