Nicole and Mike got married on a very hot, sunny Columbus day in August. Despite the weather, the wedding and reception were absolutely fantastic. Working with Nicole and Mike's family and bridal party was a blast, as you'll see in the photos of the day below.
We started at the Westin in Columbus where Nicole was getting ready with her girls before the ceremony. We captured some shots with Nicole and 9 members of the bridal party. We also captured some images of her shoes and dress.
The Westin offers a beautiful ceremony venue- it was decked out according to Nicole and Mike's wishes. The gold and ivory backdrop and chairs complimented the feel of wedding and the marble floors and decorated ceilings provided some eye candy. When it was time for the ceremony, the bridal party lined up behind the curtain and walked in slowly. The bride and groom exchanged vows and shared their first kiss and husband and wife!
After the couple said their vows, their bridal party and guests sent them off with wild cheers and ribbon and signs that said "HOORAY" and "CONGRATS!" We then headed over to Bicentennial Park where we grabbed some photos of the bridal party. Thankfully, we had just finished with all of our photos before the sky opened up! It was a wild thunderstorm that just barely missed us.
The reception was held at COSI in one of their many beautiful banquet areas. The venue was decorated beautifully. The Ocean exhibit was left open for the couple to take a couple of photos- so we took advantage before the party was introduced. The Poseidon exhibit was the perfect spot to capture some fun photos of the bridal party. We then worked with Nicole and Mike at the other end of the exhibit, then headed to the reception for some dinner and dancing.
We ended the night by taking Nicole and Mike onto the scenic rooftop of COSI that overlooks the city. Who can resist a romantic view of the city? We sure can't.
We had so much fun with Nicole and Mike and their family and friends- this day was one of the hottest we've had! The images we captured were surely well worth it! Congrats to the gorgeous couple!
