GIVE US THE COLUMBUS CITY SKYLINE AND WE GIVE YOU LOVE


BEAUTIFUL 'BEST DAY EVER' NUPTIALS CELEBRATED ON THE BOATHOUSE PATIO

We met Amanda at the Hilton Downtown Columbus to capture her Wedding Day preparations. When we arrived, she was getting her makeup done surrounded by her bridesmaids and her mom. She was smiling, excited for her big day, but also very calm and relaxed -I knew it was going to be a great day! Doug and Amanda opted for a First Look, so about an hour after we arrived, the guys met us in the Hilton Skywalk. I love the First Look -it's a perfect time for the Bride and Groom to have a special moment together before their 'I Do's'. Plus, it makes for great photos and video! We spent a little more time around the Hilton and then headed over to the Boathouse where their guests awaited them out on the back patio. After a lighthearted ceremony officiated by Amanda's brother -filled with lot's of giggles and smiles, the rest of the night went by pretty quickly! 

Amanda and Doug, you were amazing to spend the day with. Your friends and family were top notch too! I thought it was awesome that you got Brett out on the dance floor after we wrapped up. We loved your wedding day and we're so thankful that you chose us to be a part of it all! We hope you love your previews!!! Enjoy Hawaii!   -Elle


Wedding planning was a very loooooong experience. It was 2.5 years in the making. Staying within budget was difficult and we ended up blowing it out of the water. It wasn’t stressful at the beginning but once it got down to the last few weeks of figuring out the nitty gritty and trying to plan from another state it became more difficult than expected.
