What an AMAZING way to end my 2019 wedding season but with this beautiful December wedding! This wedding has been one I have been looking forward to for a long time. Hannah booked me over a year in advanced and was so organized! So much, that she had all the details I needed to make her wedding day timeline also a year in advance!!
The days leading up to Hannah and Patrick’s wedding flew by. However, throughout the year I was honored to take this beautiful couples engagement photos at a Christmas tree farm and also recently got to do a bridal session with just Hannah which was absolutely stunning (Click Here to view that blog as well)!
As the day we all had been waiting for arrived, Lauren and I took a road trip up to Cincinnati to their AMAZING venue! I truly can not say enough about New Riff! It was such a fun and modern venue that was so well organized like my amazing bride and her outstanding wedding planner Kendra (yes we have the same name) who saved the day a few times!
Patrick and Hannah’s wedding day was filled with some priceless moments that are going to make the best stories and memories for years to come! A few of my favorites from the day was when the bride and groom read each others vows to one another by holding hands at a door so they couldn’t see each other. It was truly a moment that gave me chills (and not from being outside in December). The couple also enjoyed an intimate first look. Their reaction to one another truly was like something out of a fairytale. One of my favorite moments of the day was Patricks reaction and tears of joy he expressed as Hannah walked down the aisle!! These are just a few wonderful moments of this day but trust me there were many, many more.
Oh, I must also mention that they had a mashed potato bar, street taco bar and pasta bar which were a big hit and absolutely delicious!!
Since this wedding was in December the sun set super early (before the ceremony in this case). So after he wedding I got to step out of my natural light comfort zone and play around with some flash portraits to try and mimic my style. I must say this was so fun for me!
Patrick and Hannah, I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon! Please enjoy
some of my favorites from your amazing wedding day! I truly can not thank you enough for choosing me to be a part of it!
This stunning day would not have been possible without this amazing team of vendors!
