Piggybacking on my last post about the wedding, we recently received a sneak peek of our photos from our photographer and I can’t wait to share some of them with you here! We used a photographer recommended to us by a friend in the Cincinnati area. Christina Littleton Photography captured our day with the most stunning and unique photos, and I simply cannot wait to see the rest.
As for the details, we chose Cincinnati in the fall because its rolling hills are known for the beautifully changing colors. We were married at the Cincinnati Country Club and I decided the overall color theme would be Earth tones – greens, tans, browns, taupes, etc. Our amazing 10-piece band, Clyde Brown Productions, kept everyone on the dance floor all night long and the toasts by my Dad, my maid of honor (Melissa) and Matt’s two best men (Michael and Jacob) were epic.
For our table centerpieces, we chose to go more minimalistic with the floral decor and instead, used lanterns and tea lights with bud vases and foliage. The effect was vintage and glowing, just how I had envisioned it. My cake was done by Servatii’s in Hyde Park, the same bakery that did my mother’s cake for her wedding day. 🙂
And of course, my dress…I found it in Dublin, Ireland with my bridesmaid Lauren. I wanted it shipped to Dallas, though, so I contacted the designer, Cymbeline, who was based out of Paris. They found a boutique in Dallas, Patsy’s Bridal, who was willing to work with the European designer – and they loved working with them so much, they are now carrying the entire line!
All in all, it really was the perfect wedding! Here are some of my favorites of the first round of photos.
