Enduring a pandemic that resulted in a sudden venue closure, a date change, and a cut in guest count – when Faith and Brian’s wedding day finally came, there way no way not to be ridiculously happy this was happening. And even though they had to replan their wedding all over again, and reimagine it differently in many ways, you’d never know it from the smiles on their faces at every moment. Their celebration was beautiful and I couldn’t honestly imagine it any other way. Cheers to my first covid-reschedule couple finally getting their day!
It was the first Saturday in May, and we were given a warm and sunny day! We started at the couple’s home in Worthington, where Faith and some of her favorite people prepped for the day. After a mimosa toast in the backyard, Faith’s mom helped her get dressed and we headed downtown to meet Brian, who was waiting at the Statehouse for their First Look. From there, it was just myself and the two of them, taking portraits at the Statehouse and then making our way down the city streets to their venue, Wolf’s Ridge Brewing. When we get there, couple rewarded themselves with some beers on the patio! (a throwback to their engagement session?)
Their ceremony followed, in the beautiful event space adjacent to the restaurant, where there were lots of laughs, and a few tears among their 30 or so guests. The celebration continued with dinner (the food was amazing! some of the best I’ve had), formal dances, sunset photos and a packed dance floor (all masked!). I so appreciated Faith and Brian’s attentiveness to safety; in fact, 100% of their guests were vaccinated, which is a beautiful thing indeed. We ended the night by stepping outside for some quick night shots.
These two are such excellent humans, it’s an honor to capture their special day. I can’t wait to see where life takes them next!
