While Josh and Taylor didn’t ask to get married during a global pandemic crisis, they handled their wedding day with such grace and joy! There were definitely lots of face masks and hand sanitizer available, but there was also so much laughter and tears of happiness! Josh and Taylor were surrounded by so many loving friends and family that were there in person and online to celebrate their marriage with them!
Josh and Taylor share a love for books, especially Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series. Josh even incorporated a special edition of The Hobbit into his proposal plans! So, I loved that they had an ethereal fairytale theme for their wedding with lots of greenery and gold details! Taylor’s wedding dress had a long, delicate train that blew so epically in the breeze and a romantic braided hair style! The Carriage House at Manor House in Cincinnati was the perfect backdrop for this fairytale wedding with the equestrian elements, rustic wood beams, blue pond, and sparkly fountain!
One of my favorite moments of the day was The First Look when Josh and Taylor saw each other for the first time that day! As Taylor said his name, Josh turned and gave one of the best reactions I’ve seen! He was truly in awe of his stunning bride! They read love letters to each other and shared tears and smiles – such sweet, intimate moments before the rush of the wedding day!
From heart felt speeches, beautiful first dances, a delicious berry mousse cake, and an epic sparkler exit, it was a day full of so many amazing moments! Josh and Taylor, I am incredibly thankful that I was able to share in your special day and document your families’ legacies! I pray that God would bless your marriage and wish you all the best as you start this new chapter of your lives together!
