Dayton Crowne Plaza Wedding | Ohio Wedding Photography Emily + Justin

I am now convinced that it might be January after all… we finally had some snow today! My little guys were slightly mesmerized by the effect of being inside a snow globe. It was beautiful to watch the rain turn into such white goodness.

July heat seems so far away, but I’m sending you some warmth with this lovely pink & charcoal wedding! Emily has a fondness for elephants + the color pink, and I love how she incorporated the two into little tidbits of her wedding. The ballroom affair was still elegant & classy, but fit her perfectly! The first picture is a little pink elephant tattoo she made for herself & her bridesmaids. Nothing like a little {temporary} tattoo to get everyone in the mood to stand with their best friend getting hitched!

Right before their first look, Justin & Emily were both a little nervous {quite understandably so}. When they saw each other, they were instantly transformed into the happiest couple on earth. Really, see for yourself! Their smiles lasted well into the night…

Emily’s beautiful bridesmaids wrote her a song to the tune of Bruno Mars “Just The Way You Are.” They received a standing ovation from Justin.

Justin’s aunt {below} works with Emily & is the one who introduced them! Emily assembled the centerpieces using silver plates and candle holders. Then she topped them with small cakes that were served after dinner. Genius!

Their wedding reception venue was the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dayton, Ohio and some of their bridal portraits were taken at The Dayton Art Institute.

Justin & Emily, thank you so much for asking me to be part of your wedding! I really enjoyed it and just looking at this little glimpse I’m reminded of how much love I felt by everyone supporting you that day. Thank you for putting up with the July heat in order to do portraits at the Dayton Art Institute, it was a hot one! My favorite part, was just watching your parents excitement for the two of you. Especially during the dances, it was pure joy. I always think of my little boys when I see the mama dancing with her son… it’s just a very beautiful moment for me to witness again & again. Thank you, I wish you all the best! ♥
