Intimate Garden Wedding at Miami University

Lori & Justin

Fifteen years ago, a younger version of the bride and groom in this photograph met for the first time. What started out as a platonic college friendship would blossom into love, and this past Saturday, Lori & Justin said "I do" in front of an intimate gathering of friends and family at the place it all began. Her modern, elegant gown by Calla Blanche with sheer bodice and flowing tulle skirt complimented her long dark curls as she walked down the aisle to meet her husband-to-be, but nothing could compare to the look in her eye as she walked down the alter to meet Justin. They hadn't seen each other all day, and the moment had finally arrived that they would become husband and wife.

The knot may be tied, but their celebration isn't over! We spent Saturday re-living memories from their college days and visiting the spots that meant so much to them. But next month, Lori and Justin will celebrate in their new city with countless family and friends and embark on their new life journey together! I'm so excited that I was able to capture their love in the place it all began, and can't wait to do it again in just a few short weeks right here in Columbus. It's going to be amazing!
