Today I have a treat for everyone with this Strongwater Industrial Wedding. Andrew and Joe are two of the best humans I’ve ever met. Way back in 2019, I was able to shoot their engagement shoot on a brisk December day. The plan was for them to get married the following year, but you guessed it! COVID though a wrench in their plans and they ended up waiting two whole years for their big day. They say good things come with time, and in this case, oh did the good times come!
This was probably one of my favorite weddings I’ve ever photographed. There are so many reasons why, but here are just a few.
Reasons I love this wedding
This was a wedding full of genuine, down-to-earth, fun, and laid-back people. People that made you feel like you’ve known them your whole lives. People who were gracious enough to let me in on this day and document some truly intimate moments without holding back.
Deeply personal speeches were given by the family during the ceremony. They were raw, emotional, sincere, and deeply moving. It created a quiet space of reflection for everyone and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
This wedding was a throw-down. Any time you have DJ Axcess at your wedding you can expect great things, but this was just next level. This party would have raged until 4 am if the venue didn’t have time limits. After suffering the aftermath of COVID-19, being at a party like this was just soul-nourishing!
The details and desserts
Joe’s mother hand-crocheted all of the cutest favors that were placed at each table setting. They were so adorable and all completely different. The act of making that many favors was such a labor of love and a shining example of how much these two are loved.
As if that wasn’t enough, they had Buckeye Donuts as dessert! Quite possibly my favorite donuts in Columbus, that was the cherry on top of this wedding for me!
Thank you so much to Andrew and Joe for memories that will last me a lifetime. Thank you for being your authentic loveable selves. I’m so honored to have been a part of this incredible day!
