Lauren + Mark // Brunch Wedding // Liberty Hall Historic Site, Frankfort, KY

GRACE JONES

Lauren and Mark are such incredible humans, ever since the first meeting I had with them I was smitten. They got engaged on a long weekend trip to Austin, TX, Mark asked Lauren to marry him while they were at the wildflower gardens outside the city surrounded by bluebonnets, seriously, GAH!!! They are both graphic designers (Lauren is the one who did all of my new branding!!) Needless to say they are insanely talented! Their wedding was held on a hot summer morning at the Liberty Hall Historic Site in the heart of Frankfort, Kentucky. It was PERFECT! They did a first look hidden in the gardens, there were tears and it was beautiful. Lauren and Mark’s day was filled with such wonderful little meaningful details, Lauren’s veil was hand embroidered by Mark’s mom, he’s mom also embroidered a handkerchief with their names and wedding date on it heart melts, Marks wedding band was his Great Grandfather’s wedding ring, the list could honestly go on for miles, but those are a few of my favorite details from their day! The wedding itself was insanely touching and fit them perfectly. Since it was a brunch wedding, you best believe they had brunch food - their wedding cake was even made using crepes, uh yeah, just as delicious as it sounds! All of the graphics for their wedding they did themselves, can we talk about how cool their matching jean jackets are?! I’d get married again to get my hands on one of those!! ALSO, Lauren’s dress is from one of my favorite bridal gown shops in Columbus - LUXEredux! BOOYAAA!!!

Emily + Peter // Intimate Wedding At Fern In Cincinnati, Ohio

GRACE JONES

You might remember these two beautiful humans from their surprise engagement we helped plan last year, but if not I would like to introduce you to Emily and Peter…The Shankland’s! They got married on a sunny November morning at Fern in Cincinnati. It was the first wedding ever to be held there, and I really hope it’s not the last! It was perfect for Peter and Emily’s intimate wedding gathering with their friends and family.

Coffee is a big part of their lives, that’s how they met, in a coffee shop in Cincinnati, so it only seemed fitting to have a brunch inspired wedding. There was a coffee truck from Collective Espresso and a full spread of beautiful pastries to go along with it. The space was decorated with stunning florals from Una Floral and there were tons of P.F. Candle Co. candles burning, it smelt like heaven.

Before they even did their first look there were tears, mainly from Peter, because he’s such a big softy and we love him for that! They did their first look out in the parking lot of Fern bathed in the light of the morning sun. I would have to say it’s the best first look I have ever got the chance to see, so much joy filled tears.

Their ceremony was officiated by one of their close friends, it was them to a tee and I am pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Between the moments of laughter and the ones of loving tears they got married and are now The Shankland’s!!

And off we went to their reception, with a few stops for more photos along the way. Let’s take a moment to talk about their reception, because it was so dang amazing! They reserved a couple tables at Rhinegeist Brewery in Cincinnati and ordered 50 pizzas to share with their wonderful group of humans. There was speeches and cake AND beer, of course. My favorite part of it all was when they entered the wide open space of the brewery and everyone, not just their friends and family, started to clap and cheer for them. It was beautiful and lovely and just about every other wonderful descriptive word I can possible think of.

Peter and Emily’s wedding day was about uniting their families, getting married and having a chill day just to soak in the love from everyone around them and of course to celebrate the love they have for one another!

Spolier alert: They went to LA + Joshua Tree for their honeymoon…AND we crashed it. We drove from Ohio to Joshua Tree to do photos of them on their honeymoon, I am so excited to share those photos with you guys too!!

Hanna + Brian // Romantic Literary Inspired Wedding // Canyon Run Ranch

GRACE JONES

Hanna and Brian are some of the most wonderful, down to earth humans I have ever met. Their wedding day was just down right stunning! Hanna told me the theme of their wedding over a FaceTime call and I instantly freaked out, ready…this is what she said “Natural, Literary, Moody, Sentimental, Romantic, and Ethereal.” Everything I love and more! Their plan was to have books as the main focal point and they used old books as wedding favors, BEST IDEA EVER!

As individuals and as a couple they are always seeking out knowledge, enlightenment and have a deep sense of adventure. Hanna and Brian’s wedding day captured this to a T. They wrote their own vows, which were so incredibly heart felt, I wish I could share them with you! I had asked them what’s the most important thing to them about getting married, and this is what Hanna said, I just love it so much I had to share!

“The focus of our wedding is not about us as individuals uniting, but the overall emotion of love as it is represented through the union of individuals that care deeply for each other. We want to recreate what love feels like to us: it's emotional, sentimental, stings occasionally, can be sad sometimes, but overwhelmingly joyous and deep. We want our wedding, our marriage, to reflect that ideology -- that the best part of being an individual, a human, is that we can feel this range of emotions and deepen our sense of being. The importance of us getting married is that we are best friends exploring the human experience together and cannot wait to live this life of adventure with each other.”

At the end of the night Hanna had a surprise for Brian. She sang a song and played her ukulele for him. It was the most perfect end to the most perfect day! What an honor it was to document their wedding day and their love for one another!
