Matt and Leslie were wed on April 15th. I had so much fun documenting their day and have so many favorites to share. I may have gone overboard with this blog post, but there were just too many beautiful elements and cute animals!
We started out at the Hilton Polaris photographing details and the bride and groom getting ready.
Leslie had an assortment of jewelry and wasn’t sure what she would end up wearing. She ended up going with different jewelry that I didn’t take pictures of but these were too pretty to not share! Love the Kate Spade earrings.
Monogrammed shirt to wear while hanging out and getting ready.
Leslie surprised Matt with a buckeye in his boutonniere!
Now it’s time for the first look!
Then we took a limo to Highbanks Metro Park for the bridal party and couple’s portraits. This is one of my favorite photos from the day!
We have arrived at Highbanks!
After that we went to back to the Hilton Polaris for the groom’s tish.
Now for the final stop of the day, the Columbus Zoo’s Heart of Africa!
The signing of the ketubah.
Then I photographed some details before the guests began to arrive.
The beautiful huppah.
The perfect venue for animal lovers!
The breaking of the glass.
And they’re married!
The zoo brought out a few animals during the cocktail hour!
Announced as husband and wife!
And right into the first dance.
Then we snuck away for some sunset portraits.
The Hora! So much fun!
The mother of the bride about to be hoisted into the air!
