When Lorene first contacted us back in the winter, we felt like we could not wait for their summer wedding to come around, we enjoyed taking a trip out to Columbus, Ohio to capture their engagement portraits back in the Spring which only made us even more excited for their big day to come! Given the fact that we are a few hours away from their wedding venue and therefore we could not just check it out too far in advanced before their wedding day, I actually traveled over to Ohio the day before the wedding and was able to stop at their venue and catch the end of their rehearsal dinner, and just as we expected, The Barn on Enchanted Acres was not only AMAZING but also the PERFECT venue for Lorene and Duane to celebrate their wedding day, as I was walking around I thought that I should have brought my camera and start working from that evening, but I had to wait until the next morning.
When their so anticipated day finally arrived, we had an early morning capturing the getting ready and the beautiful details that Lorene had prepared. Lorene and Duane enjoyed a first look in which they exchanged gifts, it was a precious moment, you could clearly feel and see the love they have for each other. After their first look we proceed to do formal portraits at a nearby camp, where the bridal party joined us to have their portraits taken. I think my favorite part of portraits was getting to capture bridal portraits of Lorene simply enjoying her day while showcasing her wedding dress.
Back at the Barn, a beautiful ceremony and reception were waiting for us, the forecast for the day was calling for a high chance of rain during their ceremony time, but we were blessed with a great day full of rolling clouds and not any rain, or a least not until we the reception was over.
Together Lorene and Duane with their close friends and family enjoyed their wedding ceremony and reception, during their reception they released doves to celebrate the beginning of their journey as a married couple and then enjoyed a cheerful send off from their friends and family!
Lorene and Duane, you had a beautiful wedding day, we hope this images help you and your generations to come, remember your special day! Thank you for allowing us the privilege of be a part of your big day!
Special thanks to Michelle, from Michelle Joy Photography for all your help capturing their big day!
