Libby and Phillip had one of the more intimate ceremonies I’ve ever photographed- in one of the most beautiful locations, too. The chapel at the Maple Grove Church in Clintonville served as the backdrop for their wedding. It was very low lighting which made the stained glass seem even more vibrant. High ceilings, wooden beams and cut stone gave an old warmth to the room. Libby was ear-to-ear smiles all day, but I got the impression she’s actually like that a lot. Her personality is electric. I also had major hair envy with her. Her hair had short choppy waves, and was accented with the most beautiful wedding headpiece that wouldn’t look as good on anyone else.
From the church we ventured over to Whetstone Park of Roses. I confessed my love for this place two blog posts ago, so I’ll try to resist doing it again. The roses were, again, in full bloom. You couldn’t have planned a more coordinated happy accident- the bouquets the bride and bridesmaids carried looked perfect with the roses growing on the grounds, which looked stunning against the Bride’s blush Alfred Angelo gown and Badgley Mischka shoes.
From the park, we ended the day at Lindey’s in German village for Libby and Phillip’s reception. Lindey’s has a whole upstairs they use for small events. This reception was on the outdoor porch that overlooks their stunning open-air patio. Lush greenery and florals fill every spare inch of this lush outdoor space. It is truly one of the nicer outdoor eating areas in Columbus. Speaking of nice- I just have to give a MAJOR shout out and high five to the staff of Lindey’s. I always find it interesting how venues treat other vendors, and let me just say a little kindness goes a long way. Lindey’s not only treated me like a person, but a guest. They were so accommodating and worked their butts off. If anyone has a need for a party of 35-50 people, please consider this venue.
