Since their Hocking Hills engagement last fall, I’d been looking forward to Kelsey + Colin’s Bluestone wedding for some time! Their downtown wedding took place at The Bluestone, and in fact this was my first time here! The Bluestone is a historic church renovated into a music and wedding venue, and still retains many original details, like the beautiful stained glass. I’ve been dying to photograph at this venue!
Their wedding day was a beautiful Saturday in early September. My assistant Erica joined me for the day, and we started by dividing-and-conquering each side getting ready. After their first look in front of the entrance, Kelsey and Colin recited vows they had written to each other, just the two of them. This is one of the sweetest moments I’ve seen!
After a few shots with their wedding party, the couple headed offsite for some portraits of just the two of them. We went to two locations – Scioto Audubon Metro Park for some greenery, and a nearby garage rooftop for some downtown skyline shots. This carved out a bunch of alone time for just the two of them, which I thought was totally awesome. I had worked together with them to plan their timeline, and I just loved the way it all came together!
Soon after we returned to the venue, their ceremony took place on the main stage against a backdrop of strung lights. Their Flower Man coming down the aisle – yes, an adult flower person – set the tone for their very sweet ceremony. Later on, we took advantage of the golden hour light for more sunset shots, including their one request, a shot with the venue’s beautiful stained glass windows. And not to be outdone, we ended the night with a night shot! Congratulations to Kelsey and Colin, your wedding day was a blast!
