Emily & Chris

On their two month anniversary, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite images from Emily and Chris' wedding day! 

You already know how much love I have for this family because I gushed over them a few blog posts back... but July 20, 2013 was one of my favorite days.

A little rain didn't stand in the way of this celebration that was a LONG time coming.. 

Emily was the most calm, excited, and beautiful bride. 

And Chris could NOT stop smiling.  

This duo was made for each other.

Not to mention, the details in this wedding were spot on. The couple kept the focus on the guests. They wanted everyone to feel like part of their family AND DID WE EVER!

The food was some of the best food I've ever had in my life. I can't even do it justice in words or photos. 

The environment was so intimate, joyful, and welcoming.  

If you like seeing happy people and beautiful things, then keep scrolling friends. This wedding will not disappoint.

 

The flowers and custom made bridesmaid dresses were an unbeatable combo.

In the words of her younger sister, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" Emily, you were (and are) STUNNING.

These two are so much alike, as are their fabulous younger siblings.

Some dapper gentlemen, if I do say so myself.

Such a fun group of kind and beautiful women.

If Em could describe her style in five letters, she would say J. Crew, so it's only appropriate that she and her sister traveled to Atlanta to pick out this J. Crew dress.  (AND it had pockets!)

Did I mention that the park where they said "I Do" overlooks the river dividing Ohio and Kentucky? The view was incredible.

I am so thankful that I got to be a part of this day. It was unforgettable. 

 

However, being able to sit with this family as they saw the wedding photos for the first time was just as unforgettable. I loved seeing all their smiles. 

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing this love story. It was so enjoyable to photograph.

Feel free to comment below. I'd love to hear from you!

 

With lots of love to my Cincinnati family,
