I was so excited for this wedding! Charlo, Mirella and I sat down late last year and they both told me about how they met and the wedding they were planning. Mirella is from Italy so what better venue to have their wedding than Via Vecchia, which features that old-world charm and rustic elegance. It’s no secret that this is one of my favorite Columbus venues. Nestled in the Brewery District, I still consider it somewhat of a hidden Columbus gem. I am also so tickled every time I get a bottle of their wine and see a photo that I took of the owners Palo and Michael on the back label.
I have to start by saying that I wasn’t prepared for what I saw when I walked in the doors on the day of Charlo and Mirella’s wedding. There were details dripping from every corner of the room. Everything seemed customized for these two. Family was running around helping to get everything set up and make sure that the hundreds of small intimate details were just perfect. I had never seen such a customized labor of love and family before. And the results were stunning. They transformed the otherwise simple room into a beautiful wedding backdrop of purples, whites, golds and silvers.
And now I have to gush over Mirella. She was so electrically beautiful on this day. She had specially requested some night shots, which are by far some of my favorite to photograph with couples. I think the results are nothing short of magical, but I will let you be the judge.
A special thank you to Carmen Hall and my insanely handsome husband Scott who both second shot this wedding with me.
I hope you love these images as much as I do! XO Jess
