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 The ceremony was held inside the Beverly Mansion within a narrow but tall room originally made for concerts.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!

Keeping the trend going for my weddings this year... it was SUPER HOT for Anthony and Kelsey's wedding. You would think September would bring low 80's... maybe high 70's. Try 97. Yes, I sweat through my shirt. I need to buy a black shirt. Thankfully we live in an age when people live indoors and can control the temp. The wedding went off without a hitch and I was glad to be a part of the day. Besides being friends with the bride and groom, I was able to catch up with some other friends of mine that were there, which is always nice.

This was the first wedding I have shot on New Year's Eve. If everyone is used to going out and partying for the holiday, you might as well have them do it at your wedding! We lucked out and had some decent weather temperature-wise, so we were able to take advantage of the outdoors for our wedding party and couple's photos. The ceremony was in Lancaster and the reception was in Columbus at The River Club. The club is right at the junction of two major rivers in Ohio and provides a beautiful view of the city. It was a great reception, with a live band for entertainment. Despite the power going out on the band at 9:30... and everyone wondering ...
