The Vault Columbus | The Ohio State House | Wedding Photos

We have had the privilege of working with Ashley and Mike a number of times before their wedding day. In February of 2016 we had a Valentine's Day session with the couple at the Scioto Mile/Bicentennial Park You can view those images HERE and in July of 2016 we photographed their engagement session at Inniswood Metro Gardens. It's easy to take photographs of a couple when they are truly in love with each other and have chemistry- and Ashley and Mike certainly have this. On October 29, 2016, Ashley and Mike were married at The Vault in Columbus, Ohio. 

Getting Ready...

Tony and I took a few getting ready shots before the ceremony. Ashley and Mike remained separated while getting primped and proper for their big day. I photographed Ashley and her girls and all of the pretty things while Tony captured moments with Mike and all of his guys.

First Look

After everyone was looking rather lovely, we arranged the first look in the Vault. I mean, really, IN the vault! After their first look, we took the entire bridal party outside for some photos. We also went to the Ohio State House to capture some moments before the ceremony.

The Ceremony

The ceremony was held inside the Vault. Ashley was escorted down the aisle by both of her parents and Ashley's brother was the officiant. The ceremony was extremely close and personal.

Dances

Ashley and Mike's first dance was perfectly choreographed and was a pleasure to capture. The guests were left wanting more! Ashley then danced with her father and Mike with his mother.
