Chris and Carley have been on my calendar for so long, it felt like I was just part of the crew by the time I arrived on their wedding day. We had a spectacular time at the Cincinnati Nature Center last fall and had a magical engagement session together. Still to this day, one of the most memorable and beautifully lit sessions I've ever had. I knew their wedding day would be nothing short of the same. These two had a beautiful ceremony in Dry Ridge, Kentucky at a venue that is SO gorgeous, I'm shocked I didn't know about it sooner. Green jello shots for the entire bridal party, a gorgeous ceremony, tequila shots to start the reception, lots of laughter, lots of sweat (ALL from me), a 10 minute performance complete with costumes, dancing, singing, and some breathtaking scenery and florals. The most perfect of summer days.

Christin and Kevin came to me last fall. We had the most magical engagement session down in OTR. Christin insisted the whole time she was awkward in front of the camera. When they received their images back, I'm happy to report she realized she's NOT AT ALL awkward. Fast forward to May 11th, and it's finally the big day. An absolutely perfect day to get married at the Heatherwoode Golf Club. Overcast skies without any rain around, perfect temperature, and Christin arranged a surprise for Kevin that included their dog, Leia. Christin had insisted the dog not come every time Kevin asked, the day would be so much to juggle already and having the dog there would just be too much. A hard no in his mind. A first look to remember though- the anticipation of walking toward your future wife with your eyes closed, then you turn around and open your eyes to take in your bride, 10 seconds later your best friend busts around the hedge with the wiggliest butt you've ever seen. Talk about emotion overload. Talk about perfection. It set the tone for the entire day. The ceremony was flawless, dinner was delicious, the Cold Stone catering was a spectacular hit, and the reception didn't dull for a second. I mean... the pictures really do speak for themselves.

Since the 7th grade, there are two things that were always associated with my friend Kacie: Princesses and the color pink. Throughout junior high and our first year of high school together, those things never changed. Our daily lives were filled with thousands of laughs, scheming, and ridiculous doodles galore. Flash forward to... oh my god... 18 YEARS LATER... and Kacie doesn't insist you refer to her as Princess anymore, but the color pink is still very much alive. No one in the world can pull the color like her. Well... Maybe her new husband James. Upon our final consult, I learned of James' magenta alligator kicks he was wearing for the big day. My word, did they not disappoint. Talk about stylish. Motorcycles, bubbles, and surprise rain clouds were all a part of their big day, and all of it was pretty perfect.
