Merisa + Curt
Fall Vintage Wedding
October 3rd, 2014
Creekside Conference & Event Center
A special congratulations to Merisa and Curt on their Fall Vintage Wedding!
After meeting through mutual friends years ago, Merisa and Curt's friendship grew over the years and they exchanged vows this past fall at Creekside Conference and Event Center in Gahanna, Ohio.
One of my favorite things about photographing weddings is capturing the special connection that each couple shares. It was very easy to see and feel the love and respect that Merisa and Curt have for each other. When you're around them for just a few minutes, you quickly notice how the conversation just seems to flow and is always accompanied by some laughter. It was so much fun capturing moments of these two together on their wedding day. Their love definitely shows in their photos.
Their wedding was incredibly memorable with all of the personal touches they added. From early on in her planning, Merisa mentioned that she wanted a vintage feel for their day. From her beautiful jeweled headband to her long and stately train, Merisa was the perfect picture of vintage elegance. One of the most unique details of their day was the thistle Merisa had in her wedding bouquet! She has a special affinity for thistle and her florist, Weddings Flowers by Eleana, did an incredible job incorporating it into her bouquet and her bridemaids bouquets - the bouquets still looked soft and romantic, even with the thistle elements.
Merisa and Curt had a first look session and we took the wedding party and bride and groom portraits before the ceremony. We were able to capture them with some of the beautiful fall colors outdoors. They had originally planned for an outdoor ceremony, but a rain storm rolled in and Creekside Conference and Event Center was able to move the ceremony indoors. It was such a nice ceremony and included many natural elements as you'll see in the photos of the couple using flowers to symbolize different aspects of their love and commitment to each other. The ceremony was made even more special as the couple had asked their close friends Barry and Jodi to perform the ceremony. The reception that followed was a huge hit, with a live performance by the band Cajun Butter! The evening was filled with dancing and lots of laughter. All who attended had an amazing time.
Congratulations again to Merisa and Curt on their wedding! We wish them all the best in this next chapter of their lives together!
Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding!
