I met Nick and Carly at the Columbus Bridal Fair this year, and I've been looking forward to their wedding day ever since. I knew from talking to Carly that she is a beautiful person, both inside and out, and that she and Nick make a great pair, perfectly complimenting each other's differences. I anticipated their wedding to be very special and unique. It did not disappoint.
The ceremony was held in the backyard where Nick grew up. He told Carly he always thought it would be a great place to have a wedding, and it was. Almost all the photos from the day were done outdoors. Carly told me how much she and her family loved to have fun together, and she wanted the photos to reflect that. I don't think she will be disappointed, as I found it easy to capture her contagious laugh and big heart. It was easy to see how much she loves Nick and her beautiful daughter, Brooklyn.
Their reception at the New World Inn was fondly and intricately decorated by Carly's sister, Cassie. She is amazingly crafty and did such a lovely job! Their wedding cake was also hands-down the best cake I've had EVER. (I may or may not have had two pieces. Shhh.)
Thank you, Nick, Carly and Brooklynn for letting me intrude upon your intimate affair and photograph the memories for you. I was truly honored to be there for you.
The following are a handful of my favorite photos from the day - but check out the video slideshow to see even more.
