Amy and Mitch had the most beautiful, intimate wedding in the woods of Benham's Grove in Dayton. And I just love how personal their wedding really was! Amy's Mom, Lori, made all the desserts herself. A long time family friend was their DJ. With their smaller guest count, dinner was set up more like a restaurant and it was literally some of the best food I've ever had at a wedding! (Details for them at the end of the post!!) 

But what was most important is how genuine Amy and Mitch's love really is for each other. And it was such a pleasure to document their wedding story. Because it's not often I come across people who are so openly in love. And so comfortable in it. When Mitch saw Amy during their first look, he had instant tears of joy and it was hard not to tear up myself!! You can tell these two were made for each other and genuinely love each other with a kind that will last the years. 

Grab some tissues, press play, and let the photos do the rest of the talkin <3

The day has finally come where I get a chance to share this magical, stormy wedding! 

Megan and Aaron got married in the beautiful rolling hills of Vinoklet Winery out in Colerain, Ohio. What made their wedding together particularly unique though, was the pop up summer storm that decided to make it's presence. 

Now, in most cases, that is every bride's nightmare to see storm clouds rolling in on their outdoor ceremony. But, Megan and Aaron embraced it and just kept trudging on. 

And because they decided to just go with the flow and embrace what happened, their wedding ceremony ended up being a super intimate and beautiful event underneath a covered gazebo with the sound of rain falling all around them. It felt as though nothing else was happening in the world during this ceremony. That they had the entire world to themselves. And all the focus was on their commitment to each other and the beauty that comes out of marriage itself. 

Then, the rain clouds finally parted. The sun started to show itself. A double rainbow appeared DIRECTLY over the winery. And we made absolute magic with those storm clouds together. 

Thank you, Megan and Aaron, for letting me make magic with you guys. Embracing a little adventure. And letting your wedding be as unique as they come because of it.

PS: The song choice is from Lord of the Rings because these two gamers brought out my inner nerd and I loved it <3
