Suzanne & Karim's Wedding








video
We had a wonderful time with Suzanne and Karim! Their wonderfully warm and spirited personalities made us feel like we were working with old friends, and it is probably why they have friends all over the world.

The wedding took place at Suzanne's parents phenomenal home Laurel Court. Not only was it a beautiful setting that looked like some amazing Hollywood set, but also a warm spot full of family memories. Speaking of Hollywood glamour, Suzanne wore over $50,000 in diamonds and pearls from the Versailles Collection at Krombholz Jewelers. She looked stunning! I loved the fact that the jewelry was delivered in a 1937 Rolls Royce; how fitting!

Suzanne was sure to incorporate a lot of Moroccan details (which is where they live) throughout the day. We loved the Moroccan attire and especially the lounge area set up within the tent. You can see their engagement session in traditional Moroccan wedding attire here. The Moroccan music had the dance floor packed too! Truly an amazing day that many people won't soon forget!

Suzanne & Karim get to enjoy Hawaii for two weeks before returning to Morocco. Congrats! Fell free to leave messages for the newlyweds below.

PS. If you have fallen in love with Laurel Court as much as we have, you're in luck. You can rent the mansion for your event. Just click on the link above for more information. Be prepared to book it because you're going to love it!
PPS. A special thank you to all the great vendors who made the day such a great success.

Kelly & Nick!






video

What an awesome day Friday turned out to be...great weather, a beautiful wedding and wonderful people. Kelly & Nick are a sweet couple that actually met in a chat room and then dated long distance for years (Nick lives in London).

Kelly's mom Michele, owns La Petite Pierre Catering, so the wedding was planned meticulously with many great details. The garden setting of Ault Park was perfect for an outdoor ceremony and the garden theme was designed throughout the wedding with the beautiful centerpieces all the way to the vintage rose embellishments on the programs and menus. Even Kelly's dress has rose details.

The catering was phenomenal with an all vegetarian menu, which was so artfully done we didn't even notice until someone pointed it out. A special thank you to all the vendors Michele and Kelly hired. I know many of them work with Michele routinely and their work meant a lot to her...Camargo Rental, Viva Bella Event Planning, Del Apgar Florist, Bonbonnerie Cake, Amo Ink Stationary, Studio Z Films Videography, Soul Pocket Band, Wine Bar by Sandy Kathman & Gordon Hue.

Have a safe trip back to London! Feel free to leave messages for the bride and groom below!

Suzanne & Karim!













What an amazing engagement session, an awesome home and wonderfully fun couple! Suzanne and Karim currently live in Morocco, but we did their engagement session at Suzanne's parents home in Cincinnati...that's right I said their home! Isn't it gorgeous!

They are adding many traditional Moroccan customs into the wedding including their Moroccan bridal attire that they wore for the engagement session. The traditional costumes looked so stately in the formal music room as well as in the gardens. Mark and I think that they truly look like royalty. The wedding is this Saturday and we truly can't wait.

Jennifer & Rogelio!










We caught up with Jennifer and Rogelio at the Dublin Pub last weekend and headed out for some portrait adventures. We had a great time and can't certainly wait for the wedding. Rogelio is from Costa Rica (one of Jennifer's favorite places) and it was fun to learn about his family life there. Thanks for sharing the afternoon with us! It was a blast! We'll have your sign-in-album posted soon.

Ashley & Chad!






What a cute couple! I had lots of fun with Ashley and Chad's engagement session. They are a happy carefree couple and you can so tell that in their photos....my favorites are them in the tall grass especially the piggy back ride. They love Ohio State football and brought along a ball to add to their many football memories. The wedding is this September at Ashley's parent's house and we can't wait! Congrats!

Cincinnati Weddings!




A client just brought us the latest issue of Cincinnati Weddings Magazine, where we found Alexis and Stephen's wedding that we photographed last summer. We had an amazing time photographing on her parent's estate and working with such great vendors. To see their original blog post click here....trust me the images look much better than these scans.

Here are the links to all of their amazing vendors, which make all the difference in the world!
