outdoor wedding

Mr + Mrs Craft

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

I am SO excited to be sharing these today taken with the lovely Alexis last month. I have to admit it turned out beyond any of my expectations (which is hard to do!!). I really hope to do more of these in the future.

Thank you to everybody who contributed to this photoshoot giving your time and creativity. And especially to Alexis and Becca for coming all the way up from Louisville for this little sunset shoot across a beautiful field.
