FEATURED: Burnett's Boards / Mercedes + Dustin / Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio / Elopement / Kaylee Creighton Photography

We are so thrilled to finally have our snowy, ice queen elopement published! Thank you to Burnett’s Boards for sharing our photo shoot!

We loved creating this shoot together even though we were running around in the freezing cold of January to pull it off. Hats off to our beautiful couple, Mercedes & Dustin for powering through the cold to get amazing shots. They really were troopers and worked so well with our photographer, Kaylee Creighton Photography!

Thank you to all our vendors who collaborated in less than a month to put this together. Gathering up decor, flowers, dresses and tuxes and driving from Cincinnati out to Hocking Hills was certainly an adventure. We loved working with everyone and are proud of how it turned out!

Lauryn + Nick / Real Cincinnati Wedding / Bell Event Centre / Red Queen Photography

Where do I even begin when writing about these two complete sweethearts? When I did my initial meeting with these two, I had sent over our basic questionnaire asking about their vision and what they had planned for their day. The biggest thing that will stick with me is how Nick told me that all he wanted was for Lauryn to have a beautiful day and be stress free. He just wanted her to enjoy and be happy! *swoon* 

 

This pair of teachers certainly have a one-of-a-kind love and it was easy to see throughout the whole day. There was so much raw emotion even without saying anything to each other. The way Nick looked at Lauryn as she came down the aisle, the way they smiled at one another during the ceremony, danced together and laughed. It was an absolutely magical day to witness.

It was a gorgeous wedding at St. Aloysius Chapel. Lauryn + Nick shared this day with a fabulously large bridal party, friends and family and they were all a ton of fun! Everything they chose to complement their day was on point from the mismatched golds & blushes to the white florals to the tuxedos on the men. Lauryn’s dress was absolutely phenomenal and she looked stunning! I would have teared up too if I were Nick. ;) Oh wait, I did. Haha.

The Bell Event Centre in downtown Cincinnati was the perfect location for a wedding reception! Lauryn + Nick adorned their tables with white florals, candles and hints of gold. The cake was five tiers of sweet goodness from Bonbonerie and they had personalized cookies as well.

Among the tears of joy during some of the sweetest speeches we’ve ever heard as well as the laughter, Lauryn + Nick’s happiness beamed. They shared their first dance to Beyonce’s “Love on Top” and I’ve never seen a couple look at each other the way they do. What a beautiful night!

Caroline + Brandon / Real Cincinnati Wedding / Cooper Creek Event Center / Eivan's Photography

I met Caroline about 10 months prior to her wedding day while I was stopping by Creative Invites & Events in the Reading Bridal District of Cincinnati. She was meeting them to create her stationery and when Laurie asked her what else she needed, she said that she needed help with the design of the wedding. Instantly, Laurie said, “Karen’s a wedding planner. She can design your wedding!” Caroline and I met up about a week later and immediately began working together.

She was so open to my ideas and was a ton of fun to work with creating a wedding that had the colors Brandon loved: blue and white (University of Kentucky fan, naturally). Somehow we worked in pops of orange to really create some dimension to the decor and we must say, Say I Do Love Weddings and Events killed it! Working together with Olde Guest House to doll up the ceremony space, the flowers and installations looked amazing.

 

Throughout our time together, it was a joy learning about Caroline + Brandon and their love for outdoors and adventure. They were so excited to come together and create their family including Brandon’s little girl, Finley. ADORABLE!

On the day it was a blast! Although the weather in Cincinnati didn’t seem to want to hold up, we were determined for Caroline + Brandon to have their outdoor wedding at Cooper Creek Event Center. With a 250 person guest list, it proved to be a challenge as it did start to sprinkle right when we were lining up to begin the ceremony. As soon as everyone jumped up to take cover, it was time to turn them back around and tough it out! The sun was back out for only a few minutes and we were going to go for it! In the end, the rain held off just enough and we got to see these two sweethearts tie the knot the way they wanted!

The bridal party was a ton of fun and we knew we were in for a great night! Everything looked beautiful and we had Emad Batayeh performing Arabic music. The energy in the room was on fire when we got the reception started and everyone had an incredible time! From sweet first dances, father daughter dances, yummy cake cutting to a fabulous dinner, it was a wonderful event to be a part of.

There were so many pretty details in the reception from the submerged blue floral centerpieces, to the wooden table numbers to the blue uplighting. The bouquets were FABULOUSLY large and popped perfectly against the beautiful gowns the girls wore.

We absolutely enjoyed the details that showed their personalities such as the cake topper which had a bride and groom with fishing poles. Caroline chose wooden bottle openers as favors which doubled as escort cards. We wanted to display those prominently so we reached out to Collective Charm who custom built this wall so we could easily hang each one up for all guests to find their seats. Bethany at eden + vine created personalized signs for the signature cocktails and hashtags.

We were so thankful to have met Caroline, Brandon and their families. The entire planning process and wedding weekend were such a joy and we are the lucky ones to have been there for it all. We want to send our biggest hugs and best wishes to you both! Thank you for inviting us into your lives! We hope it was as special as your love is!! Much love and cheers!
