Wedding Video and Photography at Beverly Mansion in Central Ohio | CHRISTINA + DAVID

When I was first contacted to shoot a wedding at Beverly Mansion I thought, “where the heck is it and what is the Beverly Mansion?” I had never heard of it, even though I have been doing wedding photography and videos for years. I learned that it was in Ohio, not too far from me. After doing some digging I discovered it was in Marengo county and was an absolutely gorgeous property. On top of all of this, I learned that the soon to be bride and groom had a connection to the location. Christina’s grandmother actually grew up at Beverly Mansion and still lives here in Central Ohio. Even better news, her grandmother is still in good health and would be able to attend her granddaughter’s wedding at the house she grew up at. It was really special. Christina’s grandmother was full of spunk and had everyone laughing.

Both Christina and David have extremely good taste. Christina is a designer at a major fashion retailer and David is a florist. I knew going into this wedding that it was going to look stunning and that no detail would be unattended. I was not disappointed. Everything had a personal touch and thought had been put into it. The ceremony was held inside the Beverly Mansion within a narrow but tall room originally made for concerts. There was a balcony where a string quartet played. Down in front of a large window, the bride and groom said their vows, as sunlight poured through the glass. A large chandelier hung in the middle of the ceiling.

After the ceremony all the guests made their way out back for cocktails, and then the reception to follow. Long wooden tables were situated between two enormous Oak trees. Lights were strung between them. The setting was perfect. We had lovely weather, making for a beautiful dinner. Toasts were given in the dimming light.

We crossed the bridge spanning a pond in the back of the property and captured some nice moments of David and Christina, with the party in the background just after the sun set. Lights were twinkling. Soon after this, the moon rose and the dancing begun. We returned indoors for them to cut the cake in a great room with a magnificent fireplace. Instead of cake, they cut pies, which were all amazing.

The night ended with dancing and laughter under the stars. Such an amazing day!

Emily + Dave
Jorgensen Farms is just minutes from where I live. I would LOVE to go back and shoot more events there. The venue is spectacular for summer weddings in Ohio. It take a pretty laid back couple to make the venue fit... and Emily and Dave are two of the calmest, coolest people you will ever meet. Both of them have huge hearts, and you can sense that immediately upon meeting them. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with them at the farm, capturing the most important day of their lives. Dave gave Emily one of the coolest gifts possible before the wedding.  He gave her a well written card for the day, but also wrote out cards for all of the ...

Andrew and Caroline – Cleveland
Cinco de Mayo - We had a wonderful day for Caroline and Andrew's Cleveland wedding. As you can see, Caroline is very easy on the eyes, and hence my job gets that much easier. Point and shoot. They were married at the Old Stone Church downtown, which was full of charm and a perfect setting. After the wedding we headed to the lake to get some photos, but the 40mph gusts were not fun for the ladies so we went elsewhere. The ceremony was held near the airport at a historic 'bomb group' venue, which had tons of WWII photos. This was particularly appealing to me because my grandfather was a flight engineer on B-17's during the war. There were lots ...

Nashville Wedding Video | Country Music Hall of Fame | Lauren + Ryan
Rarely do you meet a couple that has such an impact on you. From the moment I met Ryan and Lauren, I knew they were truly special souls. I knew that this Nashville wedding video would turn out really well. During his interview, Ryan said quite possibly the nicest things about Lauren that I have ever heard. Any girl would die to have their boyfriend or husband say these things about them; and yet if they did, it would still seem forced. However, when Ryan talks like this, he means it, and you know he means it. It's genuine. Lauren has a huge heart and her love for Ryan is as clear as day. You will also quickly learn of Lauren's love for Jesus. ...
