Autumn is my favorite time of the year for a host of reasons. The crispness in the air, the warm colors in the trees, the perfect temperature for a great bonfire. And, when all three of those things line up with an absolutely incredible couple and their modern greenhouse weddings, you have the trappings of an incredible wedding day!
Meeting Cory + Chelsea was a wonderful random chance a few years ago. While attending a photography workshop, we needed a couple models. When I put a call out for a fun couple in California, a friend and former bride of mine tagged Chelsea, telling her to sign up! And, after hitting it off in the workshop, we stayed in touch. When the time came and Cory proposed, I was super hopeful I’d hear from them, and I was even more excited when I did!
Living in San Diego, these two had an incredible engagement session on the west coast to compliment their modern greenhouse wedding here in Columbus, Ohio. With two very different backdrops, these two had beautiful days both times, and had a wedding day that was one for the books!
Jorgensen Farms is one of the best Columbus wedding venues, and it served as a stunning location for Cory + Chelsea’s wedding day! With autumn in full swing, the colors were exploding with reds, yellows, and oranges, and combined with the beauty of the greenhouse, you have the makings of a fantastic location for a wedding.
But before heading to Jorgensen Farms, we met up with Chelsea at The Bride Bar, where her and her girls were getting ready. The space is super fun and a perfect place to get ready! Having loads of awesome spots to prep, Chelsea and her girls were full of life and laughter as they got ready for the day.
Once everyone was ready to go, we made our way to Jorgensen Farms to fully start the day. And, with such awesome grounds to use, we started off having a blast with their first look! Cory + Chelsea are two of the sweetest people, and their first look was perfect for them. Cory’s excitement and surprise as he laid eyes on Chelsea for the first time was perfection, and we then had all of Jorgensen to create awesome portraits!
With a beautiful autumn day, every piece of the puzzle fell into place for their moments. With their officiant being Cory’s brother, they had a family flair to their special day. And, luckily for Cory, he didn’t tell too many secrets while marrying them!
Once the ceremony was finished, though, that’s when the party started! Inviting the Blue Water Kings Band in to kick things off, Cory + Chelsea’s loved ones kept the dance floor popping for them all night long! And, speaking of popping, the hilarity that ensued from the wedding party’s attempts to pop confetti canons during the first dance made for fantastic moments.
From start to finish, Cory + Chelsea had an incredible wedding day, and it was an honor to get to be a part of it! Thanks, you two, for having Olivier and myself there for your moments, and I can’t wait to see where life takes the two of you!
