This wedding has a special place in my heart. Arielle was my roommate in college, and I was thrilled when she asked me to capture her day. After their gorgeous engagement session, I knew Matt and Arielle's wedding would be perfect.
There was a chance of rain all day, and it started pouring while the bridal party was getting ready. Despite the forecast, Arielle was all smiles.
The clouds cleared, and the outdoor ceremony was completely dry!
The ceremony was held at Withrow Nature Preserve, and the old home on the grounds was the perfect backdrop for some portraits.
Because the ceremony was in the morning, the reception was a brunch, donuts and all. It was excellent!
We headed to Fountain Square after the reception for some more wedding party photos.
I spent some time just with the bride and groom around the river. The whole day was so relaxed and perfect!
It doesn't hurt that Arielle looks like a model. You are so gorgeous my sweet friend!
Matt and Arielle, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your beautiful day. I am so happy for you!
