The Big Day
Today is Amara and Vincent’s 2 year wedding anniversary. Like so many weddings I have shot I never got time in my slow season, in the months after their wedding, to post these beautiful photos (thank you Covid-19 for all this time on my hands). They got married at the beautiful Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City, the threat of rain had been there in the days prior and the forecast was questionable. Luckily the weather cooperate most of the day and just as we were finishing up photos the rain started and a beautiful rainbow appeared. Their day was full of so much love and I was so honored to have captured it.
I was lucky enough to sort of know these two before their wedding. I had shot Vincent’s sisters wedding the year before and then this past summer shot Vincent’s other sisters wedding. This family is dear to my heart! Vincent and Amara have a baby on the way and are due any day now and I recently got the opportunity to shoot their maternity photos (full heart). If you know me, you know I love weddings and capturing that big day, it’s such an honor to be chosen and trusted with those moments. However, the real compliment for me comes when my couples come back and ask me to capture their happily ever after.
How did you two meet?
Although we attended different schools, we frequently crossed paths and ended up meeting through mutual friends in high school. Junior and senior year we became BEST friends and started dating at the beginning of college.
How long have you been together?
How did he/she propose?
Vincent got down on one knee while hiking Old Man’s Cave in February! It was supposed to be rainy and cold but turned out to be a perfect, sunny day. After proposing, Vincent pulled out a picnic basket he had hid behind a rock full of my favorite things. We popped some bubbly and enjoyed some time together in the midst of God’s beauty prior to the engagement party he had planned for later that night. It was a perfect day!
What do you love to do together?
We love to adventure. We have travelled across the country together, to California, Connecticut, Florida, and so much more while exploring. But even in small Ohio towns, we can find an amazing diner or some hidden gem that becomes “ours.”
If you could pick one word that describes you as a couple, what would it be?
Best-friends! That’s one word, right? 😊
What do you love most about her?
She is the most kind and joyful person I have ever met. She effortlessly spreads joy to those around her, it’s truly amazing.
What you do love most about him?
His self-less heart. Vincent is always helping and serving others.
