Planning a wedding can be overwhelming. Replanning a wedding can be REALLY overwhelming. COVID has brought with it so many unexpected challenges from gathering restrictions to job losses to canceled flights and closed down venues. As Cincinnati and Dayton wedding photographers, we have been so impressed by how positive and optimistic our couples have remained throughout the process. Katie and Andrew were no different!
In the span of about a month, they replanned their large celebration to an intimate gathering at their home and the nearby neighborhood park. Family and friends came together to transform both spaces into the perfect backdrop to celebrate Katie and Andrew’s love! In so many ways, the microweddings are quickly becoming our favorite things to shoot. There were so many pieces of their wedding day that they didn’t get to have. But the most important things got to shine even brighter because of the more intimate setting. We got to explore Dayton together – the city where they went to school, met, and fell in love. They wed at some of the places their love has grown – in their home and neighborhood – and because of that, their sweet rescue pups got to be a part of the fun! They set a record with our first ever mother son dance to turn into a conga line. 😉 They got to witness how loved they are as they watched those who loved them most set early morning alarms and spend the day working hard behind the scenes to make everything magical for them. They got to have a friend officiate their big day. And in the end, they got to be MARRIED. And there really isn’t anything more important than that.
Katie and Andrew, you are some of the best! We pray you always continue to make each other laugh as hard as you did on your wedding day, and we pray you never start sweating the small stuff. Thank you for letting us hang out with you all on your wedding day – we love you guys!
