Gabby & James | Cincinnati Ohio, The Monastery Event Center

The Monastery Event Center in Cincinnati provided the perfect backdrop for Jame's and Gabby's wedding day. The cathedral ceiling, and elegant chandeliers that hung perfectly in place, transformed the ceremony and reception backdrop into a breath-taking scene. 

Gabby chose to get ready at an Airbnb house within walking distance of the Monastery, which made getting everywhere quick and easy. It didn't hurt that the guest house had so many tall windows and so much warm, cascading light for getting ready photos. I try to encourage all of my brides to find the best possible locations with natural light--it is so important for natural looking images! Gabby was stunning in her jaw-dropping gown and Badgley Mischka studded shoes, accented by lush florals designed by my talented friend Janet of Floral Verde.

My assistant Brooke and I had so much fun getting to know Gabby and James and their families on such a beautiful day. The weather couldn't have been more perfect or the sky more blue.

Thank you so much for asking me to be a part you two--congratulations on your new adventure together!
