I can’t say enough about Christie and Ingmar. They are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet in your life. Christie is also blissfully unaware of how drop dead gorgeous she is, which makes it even more fun to get her in front of the camera. If I hadn’t slacked so badly last year because of having the baby, I would have posted their super quaint engagement shoot we did in German Village. If you pick up the current issue of The Knot Ohio, there’s a photo from that shoot along with their proposal story in it.
One of the fun things about shooting both the engagement and the wedding is getting to know the couple better one-on-one, and then getting to know them AND their family on the big day. This family is literally overflowing with love for each other. Christie’s sister seemed like the glue that helped everything run smoothly, and her fervent love was so palpable at every step. People flew in from as far as Dubai to be at this celebration. It was truly the party of the year.
Let me just say this- Christie wore a Matthew Christopher dress and Kate Spade shoes that were just show-stopping. I think I even swore a little when I saw her shoes because I love them so much.
The ceremony was held at St. John the Baptist. I hadn’t been there in a couple years and I just love every time I get to shoot there. The bright colors and intimate environment make for a spectacular setting for a wedding, large or small.
The reception was held at Via Vecchia, one of my favorite Columbus Wedding venues. MStyle styled the evening to perfection, Country Blessing Florals accented the day with beautiful flowers, Catering by Scott created a culinary tour de force, and Ryan Smith kept everyone out of their seats and on the dance floor.
