Classically romantic at The Renaissance in Downtown Cincinnati

Olivia and I connected through her photographer, Lauren Difulvio. It was the best connection because I love any time I get to work with Lauren. She’s an amazing photographer who takes beautiful photos and her brides tend to be as laid back as she is. Let me tell you, I love a chill bride. Especially one with great style like Olivia.

For this gorgeous fall wedding we leaned heavy on the purples. Purple is one of my favorite colors to design with right now. Not necessarily the purple you would see in a crayon box, but instead the great mauves and plums and lavenders that help create a lot of nuance and sophistication to floral arrangements. From clematis to antique hydrangea, to garden roses, this wedding was full of some of my favorite flowers.

There were so many great elements to this wedding, but I have a special fondness for the little army of flower girls and junior bridesmaids. We made a mix sweet flower balls and little posies for the little ladies to carry and my goodness, were they adorable!

Let me continue gushing; I also loved this wedding because it was at one of my favorite venues in Cincinnati, The Renaissance Hotel. The Ren is so gorgeous and Burnam Hall is such a fantastic ballroom with its high ceilings, beautiful gold accents, and great views of Cincinnati’s skyline.

One more great note, then I promise you can look at the pictures, Olivia and Jeff’s wedding was also seamless because they hired Maura Bassman Events to help run the show. Wedding planners are so helpful and Maura’s team in particular is exemplary. They make my job easier.

Okay, okay - now on to the photos!!

A snowy winter wedding at Backstage Event Center

Snowy days will always remind me of Emily and Andy’s wedding at Backstage Event Center. Some brides are scared of the snow on their wedding day, but if you have a great photographer like The Carrs, you should hope it snows.

This wedding was such a fun one to work on. It had everything from a bold ceremony altar, to fun reception pieces, and the most important of all - a fantastic bride and groom to work with. I wish Emily and Andy could get married again so I can work with them all over again.

Overgrown English Garden Vibes at The Madison in Covington, KY

Mary and I have a lot in common. We both love terrible reality TV shows (hellloooo, Southern Charm!) and we both love lush, romantic, and slightly overgrown garden vibes in our wedding florals. This style led to some of my favorite floral arrangements from the year. Fall weddings mean I’m able to mix local dahlias (shoutout to Mockingbird Hill Flower Farm) with gorgeous garden roses from California.

The ceremony and reception were both held at The Madison, and it was the perfect location to catch these beautiful riverfront shots in Covington. Cait Morgan Photography plus the golden hour equals some incredible photos.
