Welcome to the new year! While we get our feet wet in 2017, I just want to revisit the rest of my weddings from 2016 that deserve their time in the spotlight! Today on the blog, I’m so excited to show you photos from Jon and Kasia’s late July wedding. You may recognize them from their engagement shoot that was on the blog earlier last year which can be seen here. Their beloved doggie Michi was back as a part of the wedding party too!
Jon and Kasia got ready and had their first look at the downtown Columbus Hilton. There are literally a million creative angles than can be taken advantage of in this space. Kasia’s Allure dress softly flowed behind her, making every space she entered seem more elegant and grand. Her outfit was accented with shoes from Pink Paradox London. The bridesmaids wore neutral soft pink and tan tones accented with bouquets from Hilliard Floral Design. Jon was looking dapper with a Tux from Joseph Abboud.
From the Hilton we ventured over the the Franklin Park Conservatory where their ceremony and reception would take place. They were predicting rain, but if memory serves me correct, it didn’t rain one drop- it was actually one of the more beautiful days for an outdoor wedding all summer. My favorite part of their ceremony was their commitment ceremony. They took a young tree, added soil from both of their family’s homes, and watered it with a pitcher of water together as a couple. They were then going to plant that tree in their yard.
On a personal note, I have to thank Jon and Kasia. They have proven themselves time and time again to be some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met in my entire life, hands down. They go out of their way to send a note of thanks or loving gifts to our son who, as you may know, was quite the warrior last year. They have meant so much to our little family and have definitely been a shining ray of sunshine on our lives over the past year.
