Christina and Chad's wedding

Christina and Chad's wedding
I headed up to Dayton for Christina and Chad's wedding. I was super excited about photographing their wedding since their engagement session was so much fun!
We started out at the Embassy ...
where Christina got ready ...
and got some help with her nails ...
Christina's mom did her hair for her wedding day ... I loved the lighting in this one.
The dress ... which was stunning!
and a little dress detail ...
Shoes!
their beautiful rings ...
Chad also got ready at the Embassy, so I was able to get some shots of him as well ...
Here he is with his brother and dad ...
his mom looking at the rings ...
and dad getting some help from the whole family ...
Our handsome groom ...
and Christina looking fabulous!
a detail shot of some flowers at the reception ...
Christina walking down to meet Chad!!
and Chad seeing her for the first time that day :)
The new Mr and Mrs!
Some portraits outside of the Dayton Art Institute ...
and in the auditorium ...
I like this shot of the reception hall getting all set up for the big party ... everyone was hustling and bustling to get things ready ...
a detail shot of a place setting ...
this next shot is for Chad. These chrome colored jordan almonds were his favorite thing. He told me that anytime you have the opportunity to eat something that looks like it is chrome, you should take it! And, just so everyone knows ... at the reception ... I did! They were great!
Chad and his father enjoying a 'Manhattan' ...
the cake ...
a couple of first dance shots ...
and a couple of fun dance shots towards the end of the evening ...
Christina and Chad, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations and thank you so much for sharing your day with me.
Another thank you goes out to Karen for helping me out and for making my day so much easier!

Hey Neysa...love the vintage look on these pics, with the POP of pink piones...how beautiful. One of my fav shots was the flare right in the middle of the people on the dance floor. As always LOVED IT!! Jess :)

I am with everyone else on this one - love both dress shots. The first portrait after the wedding is wonderful!

Yay! I am so glad everyone enjoyed the photos! And I just HAD to do some vintage processing on their images ... I mean, they got married at the Art Institute ... the pictures were screaming for it. It really was an amazing wedding. Every detail was well planned out.
Thank you for the great comments!
