Amelia + Sara: Columbus Ohio Same-Sex Wedding at Strongwater

Amelia + Sara’s wedding was so much fun for me, particularly because we have quite a few mutual friends and some of them were at the wedding! And also because it was at one of my favorite venues in town, Strongwater Food & Spirits. Their fall wedding was laid-back and the weather was perfect. Also, it’s always hard to predict for early November, but we lucked out with some lingering fall color, coupled with the interesting Franklinton buildings, made for some great backdrops!

We got together the first Saturday in November at Strongwater. They had everything take place there, we didn’t have to travel for anything, which made the day super easy for everyone! Sara and Amelia chose not to see each other before their ceremony, so they got ready in separate rooms at their venue.

Planning a wedding for November, I don’t think they expected to have such a mild day that would allow for an outdoor ceremony, but that’s exactly what happened! Officiated by the hilarious Brooke Cartus, Amelia and Sara read their vows to each other from their favorite books. Following the ceremony, we explored the Franklinton neighborhood for portraits in the golden hour light.

Back at the reception – amazingly decorated by EcoFlora – guests were treated to dinner, toasts and dessert, before the dance floor opened up and stayed packed into the night. Congratulations to Amelia + Sara!!

About

I aim to capture moments and expressions that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to the people involved. If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job!
