The Lytle Park Hotel provides the perfect combination of chic rooftop bar fun and luxe details, so it was no surprise when Gabrielle and Bryan told me this place “feels like us”. Just like this gorgeous hotel, these two are classy but don’t take themselves too seriously.
Bryan and Gabrielle met when they were just ten years old on the Mason swim team, and by the time they were sophomores in high school they were officially an item. Even though when they were high school sweethearts Gabrielle said she would marry him one day, she never dreamed she would be right! These two are currently living in the Windy City and planning their summer 2021 wedding at The Transept from afar, so it was so much fun to have them back in their hometown for engagement pictures! Between COVID and Chicago, we hadn’t gotten to meet them in person yet, but when I met them for their session, I couldn’t help but immediately fall in love with them.
Gabrielle and Bryan are troopers and were game for everything from kissing in the middle of the streets of downtown Cincinnati to spinning each other around in P&G Gardens. It’s obvious how long they have been loving each other after spending just a few minutes watching how comfortable they are in one another’s arms. I don’t think Gabrielle stopped smiling for a single minute of their whole session, and Bryan didn’t complain once when I kept finding new spots to “just take one more picture” when they were supposed to be done. 😉 Gabrielle and Bryan, we are SO excited for you two and cannot wait to capture the next chapter of your love story this summer!
