We started off the month of September with a bang, shooting Angela and Wesley's wedding at Jefferson country club in Columbus, Ohio. Angela and Wesley are such a perfect couple, they were with each other from the beginning of the day to the end. I can tell that these two are the real deal. We didn't even have to TELL them to kiss for pictures- they just did it themselves! We love that.
The venue set up a very nice outdoor area for the couple to say their vows. We started the day by taking some photos of Angela and Wesley getting ready in the very spacious rooms inside of the country club. Angela and Wesley had plenty of help from their bridal party getting the finishing touches just right.
The couple wanted to have a first look before their ceremony, so we took them to a shady spot near their ceremony location. The bridal party stood back and watched as the bride and groom saw each other for the first time in their wedding attire. They shared a moment, then we began taking bridal party photos! We also snapped some photos of the bride and groom alone inside of the country club.
Soon it was time for the ceremony, and Angela's father escorted her down the aisle to Wesley. The ceremony was unique and interesting. Angela and Wesley incorporated earth elements into their ceremony, symbolizing elements of their relationship. They each placed a handful of soil into a potted plant and watered it, which symbolized nurturing and growth. They also lit a candle to symbolize unity. They bound their hands together as a sign of being bound to each other and they didn't forget to add their daughter, Lydia into the ceremony. They all held hands together and prayed, then Angela and Wesley shared their first kiss as husband and wife.
After dinner, there was some cake eating and much dancing. The couple shared their first dance together, then asked their parents to join them. We made sure to grab a few shots of the couple's rings using the wedding favors, Angela's bouquet, and their "wedding guestbook" of personalized rocks by each guest. As the guests continued to dance the evening away, we asked Angela and Wesley to join us outside for a final photo by some flowers near the venue. It was a beautiful day for a wedding!
