Becca + Andy - Adventure Engagement Dayton Ohio

These two are getting married this weekend, and we could not be happier for them!

A few weeks ago we spent a little time exploring a waterfall in the rural areas north of Dayton. It's hard to explain, but there's something magical that happens when we have a couple who trusts us 100% and is willing to get their feet dirty. None of us really knew what to expect (we'd never been to this area before), and the resulting images are some of our favorites. Not only because of the gorgeous landscape, but because Becca + Andy were outside of their comfort zone, experiencing something new together, and somehow it brought them closer to each one another. They had to rely on each other to navigate the rocky path, holding hands for balance. It was exciting and romantic and exactly the kind of thing more of us should do on a regular basis.

Bethany + Peter - Pallet 23 Wedding Cincinnati Ohio

Dear everyone,

Brunch receptions are the best idea.

The Brauns

Bethany + Peter's ceremony took place at noon, and was followed up by a reception with breakfast foods and beer that was handmade by Peter himself. Um, yes please! Bethany and Peter are both speech language pathologists, and the centerpieces on the tables were highlighted by phonetic symbols from parts of words representing their relationship. Nearly everything at the wedding was hand crafted by Bethany herself, and she managed to combine excellent aesthetics with personal significance. Not an easy feat. It's hard to beat well done DIY if you ask us.
