Jackie and Rob at Music Hall

Jackie and Rob have a long history together starting all the way back in grade school so their wedding day was a loooong time coming!  With such a long history together, their friends and family are truly intertwined making for a very close-knit group of friends and family.

We just loved Jackie's gorgeous lace dress and the soft coral colored flowers mixed with the green succulents.  Not to mention that their cake was probably the prettiest wedding cake that we've ever seen.  The cake sat on top of a glass raiser that had a sea of flowers underneath.  So pretty!

While the weather was a little hot and humid, we still had fun photographing at Jackie's parent's house and around downtown Cincinnati.  Their wedding party managed to laugh their way through the heat keeping us all in good spirits.  Jackie and Rob are blessed to have so many people in their loves that love them so dearly.

Feel free to leave message for the newlyweds below.  You can also view and tag images on the studio's Facebook page as well.  Congrats to Jackie and Rob!

Angie & Chris at The Schuster Center

What a wonderful day we had with these two love birds!  Angie and Chris are such a happy, easy-going couple that photographing them was a breeze.  We had the chance to photograph in a couple different locations that gave them some varying looks from urban to classic to outdoorsy.  We just love it when we get the chance to play :-)

Angie's choice of cobalt blue dresses really set off the contrasting hot pink flowers.  The entire wedding party looked fabulous together and we were happy to find a blue and grey warehouse to compliment their color theme.  The ruffled layers of Angie's dress were also fun to photograph.  We just love dresses with beautiful layers and textures to play with.  As a perk for the bride, they are always flattering and don't wrinkle...always a plus!

We were also very blessed to dodge the rain showers that kept popping up that day.  Only during their grand exit from the church did the sprinkles catch up with them. However, the umbrella did make for a cute photo opp so everything worked out perfectly for them :-)

Feel free to leave well wishes for the happy couple below in 'comments.' You can also view and tag more images on the studio's Facebook page.  We wish Angie and Chris a 'happily ever after'...just like their sign read :-)

Emily & Ryan at Moraine Country Club

Emily and Ryan had the perfect June wedding!  To be surrounded by great weather, friends, family and the love of your just doesn't get better than that!  Emily and Ryan live on the east coast and planned from afar, but everything came together perfectly for them, including the many friends and family members who flew in from all over the country to celebrate with them.

Emily and Ryan went with a classic royal blue and white for their colors.  Blue hydrangea are some of her favorite flowers, which just had to be in her bouquets.  The Flower Shoppe did a beautiful job adding purples and pinks to the bouquets and centerpieces for a cool summer color palette.  Royal blue is one of those great universal colors that looks great on everyone...certainly a great pick for bridesmaid dresses!

To say that Emily has a great smile, would be an understatement.  As we watched her throughout the day, her radiant smile beamed from ear to ear.  Seeing how she and Ryan interact with each other and their loved ones, you can see the close ties that build with everyone they meet.  We just love wedding days that are filled with joy, love and laughter and Emily and Ryan's day was filled from start to finish!

The newlyweds are enjoying a honeymoon in Hawaii, but while they're honeymooning you can leave 'well wishes' for them in the comments section below.  You can also see and tag more images on the studio's Facebook page.  Congrats!
