The Kelly Wedding, The Monastery Event Center

Heather and Ned
Everleigh Photography, Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

This wedding was fabulous for lots of reasons.  First of all..it was 70 degrees and SUNNY in February!  When does that happen?!  The bride was either laughing or crying happy tears the entire day, and they were surrounded by their most "ride or die" friends and family.  It was just a love explosion.

Ned and Heather met when family tried to arrange a "fix-up".  Sparks didn't fly right off the bat on their first phone date, but fate stepped in awhile later when they were both invited to the same event.  These two couldn't deny the inevitable after that night, and have been together ever since.  These two just "fit".  They couldn't be more different, but they just make perfect sense.  

After our first meeting, I had bonded with Heather over our love for organization and had fallen in love with her vision of the day.  She wanted simple and elegant, but also unique.  She accomplished that goal ten fold.  Her colors were dusty greens and blues with touches of gold, mercury and copper.   She meticulously planned every detail in a pretty short amount of time (six months!) but it came together perfectly.  As Type A as she was with the planning, she let it all go and enjoyed every minute of the day once it came.  Check out a few of my favorites from this windy, romantic, classic love story.

Congrats Heather + Ned, I couldn't be happier for you two or feel more blessed to have been the one to capture these moments.

A note from the groom.  He wrote her one for when she was getting ready and one for the first look.
