Karah + Noah: Cincinnati Nature Center Wedding Day
I am SO excited to share these photos from Karah & Noah’s GORGEOUS wedding day last month! Such a dream!!
Karah & Noah got married at the Krippendorf Lodge in the Cincinnati Nature Center at the end of September. I started the day off by meeting Karah & her bridesmaids at the lodge to capture all of the little getting ready details that come with a wedding day! Karah looked absolutely stunning in her dress and she had the best custom made shoes. They ended up being perfect for spending the day exploring the woods and fields surrounding the lodge with her soon to be husband!
While I was hanging out with the girls, my awesome second shooter Victoria was down the street at a local bar with Noah and his guys. It looks like they had an awesome time sharing a drink before heading over the meet us at Krippendorf Lodge!
Once the guys arrived at the Cincinnati Nature Center, it was time for Karah & Noah to see one another for the first time. This was such a sweet moment and once they were together we jumped right into taking photos! The Cincinnati Nature Center has SO many incredible locations that offer a ton of different backdrops for a variety of photos and we were able to hike around and explore to take it all in! Once we were done with portraits of the soon to be Mr. & Mrs., we invited their bridal party out to join in on the fun! This was such a great group of people and SO much fun to work with! Karah & Noah chose colors that went perfectly with the woodsy scenery and I love how their photos turned out!
After photos, it was time for the ceremony! I’ve photographed countless ceremonies over the years and it was so refreshing to capture a ceremony with an officiant so invested in the bride & groom’s happiness. Carl met Karah and Noah back in high school and his reaction to watching them share their personal vows was the absolute sweetest. This ceremony was beyond perfect and I’m so happy that Karah & Noah are finally married after being together for more than ten years!
After the ceremony we took a few family photos (but those are for Karah & Noah to share with you!) before heading out to capture the gorgeous golden hour we had! This was such a DREAM and I love how these photos turned out! Karah and Noah are the absolute sweetest and I’m so glad they decided to head back out for more photos before going in to join their friends and family at their reception. I’m obsessed with these two!
After we finished up with photos for the day, it was time to start the party! After making their big entrance, Karah & Noah had the sweetest first dance and then cut their cake before we had an incredible dinner. After dinner, Karah danced with her dad and Noah danced with his mom before their bridal party & parents shared the best speeches. After that, the dance floor opened up and the fun really started! Karah & Noah did decide to do a photo bomb song later in the night and it was an absolute blast, the photos turned out awesome and really do capture how much fun everyone had! This entire day was an absolute dream and it was so wonderful seeing so many people I knew from high school at this reception. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day for Karah and Noah and I am so honored to have captured it all for them! Truly a dream!
