I’m a photographer, writer, brand designer, homebody at heart planted in Columbus, Ohio. My mugs hold hot chocolate, my weakness is words, my socks never match, and I want to be your friend. I’m also long winded, so you better believe there’s more.
In the running for the largest (and most sparkly) wedding party I’ve seen – Mike and Abbey tied the knot in downtown Columbus on a September weekend. The wedding was romantic and full of fun elements for guests.
After the wintry engagement photos we did last year, a stunning fall wedding was a perfect way to celebrate the Reed wedding. I always ask couples for a mantra for their marriage – the wedding day is a 12-hour span, but after the cake is gone (the cupcakes, handmade cookies, bunt cakes), you have a marriage to nurture and grow for years to come. They said they understood no relationship is perfect, but if you’re willing to give 120%, you’ll get that and so much more in return.
The longer I’m married, the more truth I find in each statement couples share with me.
This day was filled with beautiful moments and personal touches from sister and matron of honor, Katie’s homemade cookies, to the food trucks lining the venue, to grabbing the last of evening light to dip in front of the Columbus skyline. Abbey’s dress was incredibly beautiful, those bridesmaids dresses are my absolute favorite, the guys were there to make Mike laugh, the first look in front of The Hotel LeVeque was perfect, and both families were so welcoming to us.
There was a tiny bit of rain, but the hugest smiles on Mike and Abbey any moment they had alone together which shows me all I need to know. Thank you for inviting Jon and me into your day and treating us like friends, thank you for trusting us to be there on an important day in your story, and thank you for stepping to the center of the street on a whim!
Welcome to the Reed / Sebert wedding day!
