A Nude-Blush & Gold Spring Wedding on the Allee & Courtyard Reception
Oh my goodness, do I have a good one for you today! Craig & I had the honor of photographing Jonathan & Julianne’s Kingwood Center Gardens allee & courtyard wedding last Friday. And, I haven’t been able to get it off my mind since! If you know me, you would know I’m a fan of all things pink, lace, floral, and delicate. This wedding was all those things and so much more!
I first met Jonathan & Julianne last summer while they were back in Ohio for a few days. We had planned a beautiful sunset engagement session on the shore of Lake Erie. Once the day arrived, the weather did not want to cooperate. In fact, the forecast was calling for rain, high winds, and possible thunderstorms. But, with a tight schedule and only a few days in the state, we decided to just go with it. Thankfully, the rain totally held off until we were done with the session. And, the crazy wind actually ended up taking their portraits to another level. So, you can imagine my excitement for their actual wedding day.
We started the day with the girls preparing at an Airbnb in a nearby town. I walked into the cutest little house with a group full of the sweetest ladies. And, a bride with a bag full of details, ribbon, and a gold tray hand-picked for her detail photos. I barely even needed to reach into my own detail prep bag! You can just tell, Julianne thought of every little detail. It was my mission to make sure all of them were lovingly captured. Honestly, she made that pretty easy for me.
From the Airbnb, we traveled to the new Gateway Building at Kingwood Center Gardens for the bridal prep. Julianne looked like an old-school glam Hollywood starlet. Honestly, her kind-heartedness truly rivals her beauty. I’m so thankful to have met both Jonathan & Julianne, and their friends and family, and spend the biggest day of their life with them. It was a dream come true kind of day. In the words of Taylor Swift, “Today was a fairytale.” Enjoy my favorites (it was near impossible to narrow these down!) from Jonathan & Julianne’s Kingwood Center Gardens courtyard wedding!
