Kaelie was a bridesmaid in a past wedding I photographed and I was so happy when she came to me for her own wedding! When I first met with Kaelie & Steven I could tell they were the lovey dovey type that would be absolutely magical on their wedding day. For a lot of their photos I just let them be themselves and didn’t have to guide them at all. They’re both naturals in front of the camera.
The couple decided to do a “no look” first look. Steven was blindfolded while him and Kaelie shared a moment together before the ceremony. Sometimes on such a huge day, you need your person. I love first looks to get that extra time together but if you still want to be traditional and the groom not see the bride until she walks down the aisle- a simple blindfold will do.
Everyone made it out to support their love and I have so many photos I want to share of the two of them and their loved ones but for now, enjoy a small bit of their day while scrolling through the blog.
This couple is so much more than their wedding day or venue but when their original wedding venue suddenly closed two weeks before their big day- they came out on top. They didn’t let this ruin their perfect day, they didn’t reschedule- they pushed through and still had an absolutely perfect day. A huge part of this happening is thanks to Scioto Reserve Country Club for stepping in and offering their venue. Aisle & Co also reached out to Kaelie and not only helped her for free but also sent a day of coordinator to help. I’ve always been impressed with the wedding community in Columbus and how it is “community over competition”. With the closing of Noah’s Event Venue, so many vendors have stepped up to help couples and its just an amazing community to be a part of.
