David and Amanda are two of the kindest, funniest, most down to earth people you could ever know. I was so honored when they asked me to photograph their wedding late last year! (Can you believe we’re already on 2012?!) This wedding took place at the Vineyard Church of Columbus in the most beautiful intimate room, the chapel. For those who haven’t been to the Vineyard, it is a rather massive complex. Walking in, I didn’t know what to expect. Both the people and the facility were entirely wonderful to work with. The windows were artworks that encased dried flowers and botanicals. I think being able to bring nature in to an indoor setting really aids in a sense of spiritual connectivity. As the light bounced through the windows, vibrant colors surrounded the room. Amanda walked down the isle with an all-white bouquet, which I don’t see much. It is beautiful in its simplicity and I think it really accented her white gown perfectly. Gold shoes peaked out from under her dress and added a little bit of fancy-schmansy eye candy to the look! They had a very upscale color palate of black and white. After the ceremony, a festive reception was held in the Vineyard Church’s lobby area. Buckets of various flavored bottled sodas were a hit with kids and adults alike. All eyes were on the grand cake for most of the evening and the children eagerly awaited its cutting. As a wedding photographer, I couldn’t have asked for a couple that was any more in-love. They were completely enthralled with each other the entire night. It was beyond-words sweet to watch them interact. The night was filled with love and laughter and I’m so excited to be sharing these pictures with you today on the blog! XO Jess
Gorgeous black and whites!!!
