LAURA + BRAD | WEDDING PREVIEWS | THE WESTIN, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

 

 

This past weekend The Team of Brett Loves Elle found themselves at The Westin for a wonderful winter wedding. This truly felt like winter, in all of it's glory! If I remember correctly is was about 10 degrees outside and we had a little dusting of white on the ground. Man, was that wind COLD!! But, like Laura, she wasn't afraid to head outside in her AWESOME white fur coat! Not only did the Bride have fur but the rest of her lovely ladies did too! I think this was the first time the Bridesmaids were warmer than the Groomsmen! 

I was in LOVE with Laura's idea to have her ladies wearing Champagne, Gold, Silver, and Bronze colored sequins dresses. THEY LOOKED AMAZING! Now let me talk about the Bride for a minute...OMG! Laura LOOKED GORGEOUS in her simple but perfectly glamorous white accented with her sparkly Navy Jimmy Choo's! She was also covered in the most amazing jewelry. I was in love and man did her BUTT look GOOD! As her ladies called it, "her JLO booty." Laura didn't stop there, she also decided to wear her grandmother's dress. All that had to be redone was the tulle skirt! I was impressed and she looked like a Disney Princess. She couldn't stop saying how much she LOVED her grandmother's dress.  

 

 

THE ENGAGEMENT STORY

 
Randomly after the OSU-Nebraska game in 2012. I was with people he knew, so I just introduced myself with a very awkward joke after several minutes. He was only in Columbus for a few hours that day, so luck or fate was on our side.

WEDDING DAY PREVIEWS


GETTING DRESSED

Laura had technically "three" dresses. Her 'Laura Dress,' her 'Grandmother's Dress,' (worn for the ceremony), and her 'Great-Grandmother's Dress' (worn for her Bridal Shower and the Rehearsal Dinner). 


FIRST LOOK WITH BRAD

We decided to have Laura and Brad's first look in the lobby because it really was such a beautiful room! The ceilings were to die for and it showed so much history. They used their first look to also give each other gifts! 


BRIDE & GROOM

We got to shoot at The Statehouse again...but this time we got to go inside! I don't know why I've never been inside but it was AMAZING! And...apparently the happening place for photos that day! We congratulated a few happy couples while shooting. Brad told us a bit of the history, which was only fitting since he worked there for years! 


THE BRIDAL PARTY

 
We wanted to extend our sincere appreciation to everyone who spent the day with us yesterday. It was a wonderful day, that exceeded our expectations, and we are so grateful that so many of our friends and family were there to celebrate with us.

A special thanks to our mothers (Charlene and Linda) who contributed so much of their time, energy, and talents, into make our wedding and reception so special. We might be married now, but we will always be your babies...
