Esther and Matt Get Married in Columbus, Ohio

The next stop on our Seven-Five adventure brings us to Columbus, Ohio, for Esther and Matt’s wedding.  Ahhhh….. beautiful springtime in Ohio with flowers blooming and birds singing and nice balmy temperatures…. well, it was warm a couple of days before the wedding (so I hear).  However, the chill in the air was no match for the excitement that everyone shared for Esther and Matt.  They chose the beautiful Taylor Mansion, a restored 19th century mansion in downtown Columbus for their ceremony and reception location, and it made the perfect setting for a day of joyful celebration.  Esther’s mother made her dress (so gorgeous!), and in the portraits of Esther in the garden, she has a glamour that feels very 1940s movie star elegant…. take a look.

Thanks so much for stopping by to view these photos.  To see even more photos of Esther and Matt’s awesome day, just play this video.


And finally, I want to thank Esther and Matt for choosing to have me be a part of your wedding day.  It was fantastic to finally meet you guys in person after following along with you on Facebook and seeing your plans develop.  It was wonderful to meet your families and friends and spend a day in your world.  Thank you so much for being so amazing.  I wish you many long years of joy and happiness together.
