About an hour away from Columbus lives a magical little city called Granville. I was lucky enough to have three weddings there this year, and this was the first of the three. I’m not exactly sure how to describe Granville other than it has an eclectic old-money charm. Emily and David chose the newly renovated Granville Inn as the backdrop for their early summer wedding. The stone courtyard at the Inn is perfect for more intimate weddings. The Flowerman masterfully created a floral arch that stood behind the couple as they took their wedding vows. It looked spectacular behind the bride with her pink accented Allure gown and the bridesmaids’ fun patterned floor-length dresses. A lot of my bridesmaids’ dresses have been awesome this year. I’m loving the floor-length floral pattern trends that are out now.
After their sunny ceremony, Emily, David, the bridal party and I all walked around Granville and took photos. The city has cool spots to shoot literally around every corner. Brick-lined alley-ways were met with old stone buildings. Beautiful and vibrant stained glass windows peaked out from behind white classical buildings. Iron-worked fences lined streets that were covered by a canopy of mature wind-blown trees.
The Granville Inn ballroom is a beautiful warm room surrounded by stone walls and accented with chandeliers that have an old-world rustic vibe. Emily and David both share a love of literature. At their reception, stacks of books and garden lanterns came together to create fun garden-themed table centerpieces. Heart confetti was made from old books and then sprinkled around each table as decoration. Everything including the elegant Schneider’s Bakery cake was adorned with blooming pink roses. Heartfelt speeches made all of the bridesmaids tear up, which was so sweet. There was a lot of love in the room that night.
Thank you David and Emily for having me share this fantastic day with you both! I hope you love these:) XO Jess
