Wow… where do I even start?! From the moment they booked, I knew Krystal and Brad were going to be an amazing couple, and that their wedding was going to be so incredible, but I didn’t even know just how awesome it would be until I saw it all unfold! Not only were their details ON POINT, but they are truly such a warm hearted, down to earth couple that I have LOVED getting to know!

I began with Krystal at their house in German Village. It’s absolutely ADORABLE, and I was first greeted by their absolutely precious golden retriever, Kudu! She was a HUGE part of the wedding, and was even in the bridal party! You know it’s gonna be a good day when there’s a dog involved (aka my dream weddings to shoot, haha! I’m a HUGE dog lover!) When we arrived, Krystal was SO calm and relaxed, I loved hanging out with her while her (amazing) hair and makeup team did the finishing touches on her.

Their ceremony was at The Wells Barn at Franklin Park Conservatory, and let me tell you, it was DREAMY. Wow wow wow. I am literally speechless and I’ll try to describe it, but really, you need to scroll down and see the photos because it was just so incredibly beautiful. The ceremony was outside on the lawn in the garden, with a beautiful arch with GORG florals (shout out to State and Arrow! They KILLED IT). They had live music playing, and multiple times during the ceremony I spotted butterflies flying about. They had the most beautiful day for their outdoor ceremony!

Their reception was at Juniper, an absolutely incredible rooftop venue in Columbus! After taking all of their portraits at Franklin Park and Scioto Mile, we headed there for the reception reveal! Again, their reception space? JAW DROPPING. I had all the heart eyes all day long!! One of my favorite things about their wedding was their details and color palette. It was SO unique and pulled in so many colors in such a beautiful way! Just wait until you see their seating chart too, it was SO unique and beautiful!

Okay, I know I’ve shared a LOT about the details of the day with you… but let me tell you about Brad and Krystal. They are a DREAM couple. They are both so sweet and have the best personalities, and the best part is they are AMAZING together. They truly bring out the best in each other and that is so evident when you meet them!! My second shooter and I both kept saying that the day went by SO fast, because we were having SO much fun! They made it seriously a JOY to serve them and made the entire day a blast.

Another thing I loved about their day was it was TRULY a celebration. I absolutely loved being a part of their reception, there was so much energy in the room! It was especially sweet to see how close Krystal was with her dad (they did a father daughter first look at the beginning of the day, and their father daughter dance/her dad’s speech was just SO precious. So many teary eyes in the room!!) The crowd was SO fun and made the reception such an upbeat party!

Before you scroll and see all the beautiful highlights from their day, I just want to give a big shout out to the amazing vendors, in particular their incredible planner Michelle (with StR Events). She is seriously INCREDIBLE at what she does, guys! This day turned out absolutely stunning but more than that, logistically she planned every detail to flow SO smoothly. I cannot sing her praises enough!!
