Bekah & Steven's Wedding at The Nationwide Hotel & Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio. Columbus Ohio Wedding Photography.


Bekah and Steven were married on May 21, 2016 at Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio. It was a traditional and romantic affair. Absolutely perfect. Bekah was the ideal Bride from start to finish -having all of the details worked out for all of her wedding day teams. She was precise and knew exactly what she wanted. Definitely my type of Bride. Although it threatened to rain, and the ceremony had to be moved indoors, it all still went off without a hitch! Mad props to the Nationwide team who made adjustments without missing a single beat! 


Engagement Story as told by the Bride:

 
We live in VA far away from both of our families. I knew he had bought a ring and asked my dad but I didn’t know when to expect the question. He made sure one of my friends flew into town and we had my other 2 best friends on skype, drinking a glass of wine, when he walked in the room, got down on one knee behind me and asked! He was incredibly nervous and when I asked why he took me out in the snow and showed me that he actually had gotten in a car accident on the way home to propose! It was a pretty basic proposal (other than the car accident) which was perfect for me because our 3 years of living together have been busy with traveling and vacations. It was nice to have the evening with my best friend and him to celebrate in our home.

Wedding Day Tips from the Bride:

 
Have lots of time to plan, plan as much as you can as early as possible (even when people tell you to slow down or its not time yet), buy things when you find them at a good price, keep a journal of important conversations with family and friends, great advise given to you, and youre feelings during the process, go to a pre-marriage planning class (even though my fiance and I live together we learned a ton!), know what parts of the wedding are most important to you and what you’re ok with compromising on, take your time to enjoy the processes even when you get stressed, PICK A MOH WHO IS RELIABLE AND HAS SIMILAR TASTE TO YOU!

FIRST LOOK MOMENT WITH DAD

One of my most favorite moments before the wedding ceremony is when the Bride has a first look with her father. It is a very special and raw moment that we love to have documented for our couples. It was a very important moment for Bekah -her father even brought a photo of Bekah as a little girl in a wedding dress. It was priceless!

Steven & Bekah wanted to have a private moment together after their wedding ceremony. I was able to sneak in for a moment to capture these precious moments of them celebrating their love with love letters! I love the reflection on the table too!

As you can see, Bekah had two wedding outfits! For the first part of her day, she wore a beautiful lace wedding gown. During the second part of the day, she made her second grand entrance in her party threads -a white multi layered tutu skirt, white 'Mrs' T-shirt, and white wedding Converse! Isn't she adorable!??? A perfect wedding outfit for dancing! And of course, she did a lot of dancing!
