Brandy and Eric - Columbus, Ohio wedding

Last weekend, Tracie and I got to shoot the beautiful Westin wedding of Brandy and Eric, who came to me through my most prolific referral source, Charley, whose wedding I photographed back in 2005. I met Brandy for the first time on the wedding day at Studio 33 downtown where she was having hair and make-up done, then it was on to The Westin for everything else. It was a great day and so much fun, so now onto the pictures!

The salon was filled with really interesting and beautiful original artwork.

Lots of touching moments throughout the day with Brandy and her mom, who was an absolute riot!

Brandy, checking out her little brother in his suit.

This doorway from the lounge at The Westin had the best light ever!

Tracie got this great shot of the toast.

The band Conspiracy played at the reception and they were loads of fun, even inviting the family to get up and sing along.

A nice big hug for Charley and her sister Ellie.

Congratulations, Brandy and Eric, and thanks so much for having us be part of your day!!

Happy Anniversary, Adriann and Reid!

And round two of the happy anniversary wishes goes out to Adriann and Reid, whose one-year anniversary is today. Adriann and Reid were married at Bexley United Methodist Church (site of Teresa and Bruce's wedding a couple weekends ago), with their reception at The Westin. We had a great time at this wedding as well, and these pictures show some of the fun:

Happy Anniversary, Adriann and Reid!!

Happy Anniversary, Dena and Chris!

First up on the "happy anniversary" list is Dena and Chris, who were married one year ago yesterday at King Avenue United Methodist Church, reception at The Athenaeum. What a fun group they were, and here are some pictures to prove it!

Happy Annivesary, Dena and Chris!

Teresa and Bruce - Columbus, Ohio wedding

As round two of our double-header wedding weekend, Tracie and I spent the day with the lovely Teresa and Bruce. Teresa was working at Bexley United Methodist church as the coordinator for Adriann and Reid's wedding almost a year ago now, and I met her while I was waiting for Adriann to arrive. We chatted about her wedding and hit it off right away, and the rest is history! There were lots of nice touches that went into Teresa and Bruce's wedding, including an open ceremony for the church's congregation followed by a cupcake reception on the lawn. Those cupcakes were adorable and smelled so yummy!

So, on to the show!

Too bad you can't smell these!

Ring bearer, on a mission.

Bruce, watching the proceedings before it's time for his entrance.

I love this shot Tracie got of Teresa and her matron of honor on their way to the sanctuary.

This little girl was a total riot. Yes, this is right on the altar.

The best man, Bruce's son, acting like the ring was stuck on his finger.

Showing the rings to all the family in the first row. I thought this was really sweet.

I have no idea what's going on here, but this is too funny.

Teresa with their pastor on the lawn. I love how we can see Tracie shooting the kids in the background. It makes for a good "picture" of what was happening.

At Embassy Suites Dublin. We went up to their room to shoot a few alone-time pictures, but en route they stopped to wave at their guests enjoying the cocktails below.

A very sweet toast given by Bruce's son.

Then lots of hilarity and big laughs at the reception.

Thanks so much, Teresa and Bruce, for having us share you day with you!
