i love this love story pretty hard you guys, …mostly i love that it appears from the outside to be quiet + modest, and then i caught the glimpse of him seeing kelsey in her wedding dress for the first time and saw his entire being light up. seven years later, and they still look at each other with hearts in their eyes, and they genuinely enjoy each other in a big BIG way. there is no doubt about the depths of this love. it’s deep, it’s big, and it’s real. it’s made of all the forever things…
nick + kelsey hosted the coolest wedding, in the coolest places. they began their wedding day by booking an AirBnB filled with beautiful light and they got ready TOGETHER. (please please please, more of this in my next wedding season!) their intimate ceremony took place at the Wade Chapel at the famous Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio, and their reception was brilliantly hosted in the Hildebrandt building, an old meat processing building. every detail was so organically nick + kelsey it was hard to believe it was real life! from the vegan buffet + desserts, to the way they turned a blank room into this sun soaked space filled to the brim with their personalities was just insane. hand drawn signage done by nick himself, a popcorn stand in honor of a dear family member, and of course we can’t leave out the fact that nick + kelsey made photography such a priority that we even had time to stop at Lake Erie’s coast and chase some light.
i couldn’t imagine wrapping up my incredible season of love stories with anyone else! and can we talk about the fact that the three of us having a photograph taken together was a priority? i mean, it’s easy to make meaningful + wonderful art with people who make you feel so loved!
documenting this day, was one of the highlights of my whole career to date, and i thank these two incredible humans for choosing me, and then choosing to be real life friends after! SCORE!
