The Big Day
If there is one thing I wish I could shoot more of it would be tented backyard weddings. There was something so magical about it all, specifically loved when the sun set, the lights twinkled and loved seeing the stars at night. Perhaps Events Held Dear had something to do with that magic, yes, Leda really out did herself with the planning and design on this one. The six tier cake created by Miam Cakes was to die for. The florals from Evergeen Flower Co. were absolute perfection (although I’ve never not seen perfection from Heather at Evergreen Flower Co). While a backyard wedding isn’t an easy event to put on, I’m sure if you asked Autumn and Keith they would say it was most definitely worth it. My favorite moment was when they did the tent reveal by themselves and went straight into a private first dance, halfway through the first dance they were joined by their sweet little girl, Penelope (cue the tears).
Autumn and Keith, like so many of my #kismetcouples, since their wedding have come back to have me capture their growing family. I’m so humbled they’ve chosen me to document all these important moments and what I love is that they feel like friends and family to me now!
How did they meet?
Autumn and Keith met at winter Columbus Beer Fest, downtown at the Convention Center. She wasn’t looking for anything serious but thought he was cute, so some beer, a few shots of tequila …the rest is history.
What they love to do together.
Autumn and Keith love to go out to eat. Keith is a big foodie and loves taking Autumn out to try new places. They also love drinking wine and watching “the real housewives of orange county”. They love to entertain people at their house and also love Sundays laying in bed watching cartoons with their daughter P.
If you could pick one word that describes you as a couple, what would it be?
What do you love most about her?
She has brought a much needed joy into my life. I never thought I would find someone to spend my life with. We have been inseparable since our first date. If things couldn’t have been amazing enough, our beautiful Penelope came into our lives. I love that she has stuck by my side through the ups and downs. Autumn is a beautiful, supportive, and encouraging person. I wouldn’t want another partner to stand beside me.
What you do love most about him?
He makes me laugh, even when I don’t want to he always finds a way to. I always love how he believes in me and that makes me a better version of myself, he makes me want to be a better wife, mom and friend. He makes me feel loved and beautiful everyday.
