The Center Cincinnati Downtown Wedding | Tiffany and Brandon

Lots of laughs and lots of gold glitter! :)  That's what comes to mind when I think about Tiffany and Brandon's wedding at The Center.  There was no shortage of laughter, whether we are talking about the ceremony, the bridal party introductions or the toasts!  And I loved all of the pink and gold details scattered about the ceremony and reception area. Everything looked so pretty and elegant, much like Tiffany herself. 

Find out about the inspiration behind their wedding here!

We loved our venue from the moment we walked it. It was so elegant and I loved the wood floors, high ceilings, and giant floor to ceiling windows that looked out to Fountain Square. We also love that the entire venue was ours and building wasn't shared with other weddings.

Our ceremony is short and sweet. With some humor hopefully! Brandon has been friends with the officiant for 20 years so we will get some laughs.

We want the reception to just be a fun celebratory atmosphere. There will be A LOT of glitter!

I love garden roses and peonies. That was what I wanted in my bouquet. The bridesmaids had garden roses and a special rose that I loved, it was an Esperance rose. Brandon gave me a bouquet of those while we were dating and I knew I wanted to include them.

I actually saw something similar to it on Pinterest. I wanted a simple cake with beautiful flowers. Garden roses and peonies in the cake.

So this took a LONG time. But we made our favors from scratch. They are called Oreo Balls! They are delicious and I hope the guests like them! We made over 400 of those suckers!

Miami University Cincinnati Engagement Session | Natalie and Kyle

What do a couple of Miami University alums/sweethearts/ice hockey enthusiasts do for an engagement session?  Hit the ice, of course! (Duh.)  ;)

I have to be honest here in saying this was my first ever engagement session involving an ice rink. (Eeek!) I wasn't sure what to expect! But Natalie and Kyle were such pros that it was a piece of cake!  Bonus: being inside on a hot, summer day. 

And Miami University has such a beautiful campus, there are great backdrops around every corner.  Definitely a win-win. 

Here's a little more about Natalie and Kyle's love story! 

  • We first met through our mutual friends who were dating at the time. It was two months before graduating Miami University when our friends set us up on a double date.
  • Kyle proposed to me on a Friday night after work. We had a plan to play my favorite Settlers of Catan expansion (board game) once I got home. Kyle led me to the living room where he had the game all set up. He then started his proposal.
  • We are board game geeks. It started out as an activity to do together over Skype while I was in grad school in Illinois. Once I moved in with Kyle in Ann Arbor, we collected all the expansions for Settlers of Catan. We eventually got bored of playing the same game; therefore, we decided to venture out and pick a new game out once a month as a date night activity. Fast forward to today, we not have an entire bookcase dedicated to our board game collection.
  • Our favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor for date nights are The Black Pearl and Mezzavio.
  • The vision for the wedding is elegant, romantic, with a natural touch. I like to think of it as a fancy garden party from Downton Abbey. The environment is a natural feel with ivory linen, greenery, and wood furniture. The bridesmaids will be dressed in mint and the flowers will be peach/orange.

Rolling Meadows Ranch wedding and reception | Sarah and Chase

You can never tell what the weather is going to do in Cincinnati on your wedding day.  A 40% chance for showers can turn to 90% chance in a matter of minutes! Thankfully, at Rolling Meadows Ranch, they had a great Plan B in store for Sarah and Chase's big day. 

Originally, everyone had planned for the ceremony to be at the small field behind the venue and then walk inside for the reception. Well, Mother Nature had other plans (as she sometimes does)! We all had to work quickly within just a few hours to rearrange the venue space to accommodate a ceremony and reception in one area to fit about 130 guests. No small feat! But we all came together (us, the DJ, the caterers, everyone!) to decorate, shift, improvise, etc. to still give Chase and Sarah a remarkably beautiful wedding day! 

After the rain, we still got some great opportunities to capture some fantastic portraits outside and even Sarah and Chase's First Look. (Complete with a very special blue bag from Tiffany's! Yay!) :) 

Everything turned out so gorgeous and I feel so honored that we were there to capture every minute of the action. :)  Congrats!!!

 

More details about Sarah and Chase's sunflower-filled wedding below!

  • Indoor and outdoor areas for ceremony and reception. Venue provides relaxed and rustic feel which did not require much decoration.
  • Short and sweet. Will include Roses for the mom's, blessing of the hands and memorium
  • Relaxed without a seating chart so guests can mingle and meet new friends.
  • Wildflowers including sunflowers which are the bride's favorite.
  • The bride and groom chose a non-traditional route by providing a dessert bar for guests. For the "cake" the bride and groom will each have a cupcake in the flavor of their choosing. Expect an epic cake smash.
  • Favors are skeleton key shaped bottle openers which will be set up next to tags for guests to write their "keys to a happy marriage" in lieu of a guestbook.
