Colorful & Joyous

Alyssa & Josh tied the knot September 30, 2023 at The Factory Events in Cincinnati, OH and it was a beautiful fall day with the couple surrounded by the absolute best friends & family.

Starting the day off with being greeted by their pup, Beatrice was such a highlight to my day. She's the absolute sweetest pup ever. I hopped over to the bridal suite to capture the girls getting ready, detail photos and all of the fun, candid moments that happen in-between while my second shooter hopped up to the guys room to capture them getting ready. Their decorations were absolutely stunning and Alyssa made majority of everything! We love a DIY QUEEN!

Following was the sweetest first look with Alyssa and her dad, Alyssa and her brother and then Alyssa & Josh. First looks truly are one of my favorite parts of a wedding day because it's fun to see how different everyone reacts! They had the absolute best bridal party and then we followed up the day with the loveliest bridal portraits of the two of them with extra time to spare before the ceremony.

The ceremony was led by Josh's uncle, and was definitely one of my favorites due to their personalized vows they wrote to one another. Jumping into a few extra family photos after the ceremony followed by cocktail hour and lots of fun candids and group photos. Their reception was nothing short of awesome as the food was delicious, the speeches were heart warming and the guests were in for a real treat when Alyssa and her dad pulled out a choreographed dance for the father-daughter dance. Everyone was dancing their booties off the entire night and we finished with a sweet sparkler exit!
