Ashley + Mike’s Cincinnati wedding at Pinecroft at Crosley Estate was absolutely picturesque. With a historic Tudor mansion built in 1928 as their venue, and the fall color peaking late in the season, their Saturday in mid-November couldn’t have been more beautiful! I’ve known Ashley + Mike now for a couple of years – initially through one of my favorite couples Tenzin + Jonathan, and so this was a long time coming. It was so exciting to be a part of #LeonardatLast and I loved traveling down to Cincinnati to document their big day!
With the earlier sunset time, Ashley + Mike opted to do a first look and get all the pictures out of the way. We got to take full advantage of the property, which was gorgeous and so accessible – so much variety without venturing out too far! Plus again, all that fall color. Amazing!
Their ceremony followed in the grand tent at sunset. There were lots of tears and so much love in the room. As twilight set in, the room turned to a warm romantic glow. After the ceremony, they gathered with Mike’s three children in a private room and took a selfie together a new family. It was such a sweet moment!
Back at the tent, their reception kicked off with first dances, dinner, toasts and cake cutting. Their dinner was offered in a variety of food stations, including a made-to-order pasta station – I definitely took advantage! And everyone got their choice of mini bundt cakes for dessert! The dance floor was packed the rest of the night. Congratulations to Ashley + Mike – your wedding was a joy to capture!
