There are few days as special as a wedding day in someone’s life, and having the honor to document such a momentous occasion is something that will always be an honor, no matter how many times I have the opportunity to do so. Getting the chance to celebrate and capture Nick + Erica’s wedding day at Aston Oaks Golf Club in Cincinnati was truly a blast for many reasons, with the fact that they (and their loved ones!) are genuinely some of the most incredibly kind, genuine hearted people I’ve had the chance to work with being only the tip of the iceberg!
Smiles were abundant everywhere on this gorgeous spring Saturday, and it was a true joy to get to capture the bustling preparation, the laughter, the nerves, happy tears, and the sheer joy throughout the day. Erica got ready at her parents’ home, while Nick prepared at their home a few blocks away. Both groups were a blast to hang with, and you can tell how much their family and friends love and support them. From the heirlooms passed down, like Erica’s beautiful pearl necklace that both her mother and grandmother wore on their wedding days, to the sentimental gifts like Nick’s cufflinks that share Erica’s love for Disney with her groom, everything had a place and a piece in making their own story come to life.
Throughout the day, I was constantly impressed with how truly excited these two were to be marrying one another. There was a quiet confidence, an assurance and excitement, that they were about to embark of the best of adventures together, and it was truly fantastic to get to capture that chemistry for them in their images. And, when the ceremony finished, they were officially Mr. & Mrs., and it came to the party…these folks know how to throw down! They danced the night away, and everyone had a fantastic time.
Nick + Erica, there aren’t enough words for how much fun it was to capture your day for you. It’s been a pleasure to get to know the two of you, and I wish you (and your cats! ha!) the best of adventures in the future. I look forward to seeing where life takes you!
