Ashleigh & Dan: Nov. 6th, 2010
I first met Ashleigh and Dan in 2009, and we took some phenomenal engagement photos in the Short North and Goodale Park.
I think that when you have done at least one shoot with a couple prior to their wedding (engagement photos or otherwise) it makes everyone more comfortable because you know what to expect from each other.
I was very happy when they said they wanted me to shoot their wedding because they were a super cool couple and great to work with. The ceremony was held at St. Charles Academy, in the Mother of Mercy chapel, which is a gorgeous place. We took a few shots in the courtyard before the ceremony.
Is she a beautiful bride or what? After the ceremony we headed to the home of the Buckeyes, “The Shoe,” for a few shots. It was very chilly (40s) but the bridal party were great sports and we got some great shots. We had to do the classic “Heisman stance!”
Here we have the infamous trolley, which had everyone worried because it broke down on the way to pick up the bridal party. I love the reflection in this photo.
The reception was held at Northpointe Conference Center, right off Polaris Parkway.
The DJ definitely was not the best I’d ever seen. The music cut out a few times during the night and one time he left and the music just stopped playing… I was standing right by the computer, and I know a few things about audio, so I made the sure the party kept on bumpin’
I don’t think Ashleigh or Dan were around when this happened, but Dan’s daughter pulled me on the floor to dance because “I didn’t look like I was having much fun,” what a sweetheart I hope you guys had a blast on your honeymoon in Key West and like the photos, there are many more to come!
