Sam & Marty | Iron Gate Equestrian Center, Columbus Ohio Wedding


Sam and Marty have big families and a lot of friends and needed a beautiful setting to host their ceremony and reception. A short drive from downtown Columbus, Ohio will place you right in the middle of rolling hills and miles of fields. Tucked away between the hills is a wedding venue so large it's hard to believe. Will and I first met these two in Cleveland for their engagement session last fall, and knew immediately they were a good fit for us. Two kind-hearted, genuine people-- with great style! 

Sam's inspiration of blush pink, purples and emerald green was captured perfectly in the bouquets and arrangements by my friend Heather of Evergreen Flower Co. I am always a fan of mis-matched bridesmaids dresses, and I always feel like a kid in a candy shop when my brides think a little outside of the box! 

Less than an hour before the ceremony a severe thunderstorm threatened to downpour on guests, so the entire ceremony was relocated indoors—including the all-floral arch, made bloom by bloom onsite that day. Their first choice would have been to be married outside, but the Irongate Equestrian center has this wonderful cathedral-like lighting which was the perfect soft box for their indoor ceremony. I know that all of the details are beautiful, and honestly I had fun photographing them--but the whole purpose of a wedding day isn't about the details, but the two people in love, making their commitment to one another for life. I feel so honored, and grateful to have been a part of this celebration!
