I’m excited to get back to blogging weddings during my slow season! Up first, and throwing it back to Fall 2020, is Bailey and Maggie’s elegant hometown Ohio wedding.
Leading up to their wedding, I got to know Bailey and Maggie well through their engagement session in Downtown Columbus. These two grew up together and had been the best of friends since junior high. They started dating years later, and now I can’t believe they are married!
It was so easy to hit it off with Bailey and Maggie because they are from the same hometown as me. Plus, Bailey’s older brother happens to be one of my dear friends! During our first phone consultation, I had to admit to them that I felt old. Only because I remember Bailey and Maggie most as just kids!
Traveling back home to Russia, Ohio for their wedding brought back so many memories and I always enjoy getting to visit with old friends, but one of my favorite things is getting to photograph wedding ceremonies in my hometown church. St. Remy Catholic Church has a special place in my heart and I was delighted to get to capture Bailey and Maggie’s ceremony there. One of my favorite images from their wedding was their just married kiss up at the alter!
For their October wedding day, the leaves had just begun to change, and the sun was shining to bless them with an unseasonably warm day, allowing us gorgeous portrait time outside for a first look between Maggie and her father, and a few bridesmaids and groomsmen photos just before the ceremony.
I loved that Maggie had several sentimental jewelry pieces to wear. One of the timeless pieces she wore was her great-great aunt’s watch.
Between the ceremony and reception, a special trip was made to visit Maggie’s grandma since she wasn’t able to attend their wedding amidst Covid. It was important to them to make sure they got to see her on their wedding day. This was by far one of the most memorable things about their wedding!
Enjoy all of these beautiful pictures from their day! You’ll definitely want to check out Maggie’s bridesmaid dresses!
