Abby & Sam || Colorful Spring Columbus Wedding


Goodness, where do I start with this wedding?? Abby & Sam are two of the sweetest people and their wedding was such a joy-filled, Christ-centered day! When I did my 10-year wedding giveaway last December, I truly wanted God to show me which couple he wanted me to give the free wedding to. As I prayed through all the applications, Abby & Sam instantly jumped out to me. After narrowing the applications down, and a few more days of prayer, it was clear that the Holy Spirit was directing me to choose them as the winners. And what a privilege it was for me to gift them these photos and serve them in this way!

Abby works for Bishop Fernandes in the Diocese of Columbus and he was gracious enough to celebrate their wedding for them along with about twenty other priests and deacons! Bishop Fernandes and the two main deacons were also wearing 300-year-old hand-embroidered vestments that were truly the most stunning vestments I’ve ever seen – so if you are wondering why there are a million Mass photos in this blogpost, you now know haha.

After their stunning Nuptial Mass, we headed to the North Bank Park Pavilion along the Scioto River in downtown Columbus for their photos and reception! Right before I left for the night, I went outside along the river with Abby and Sam to end the day with sunset photos!

Abby and Sam, it has been wonderful getting to know you both and I am so grateful I was able to photograph your wedding!! Keep being beautiful witnesses to the love and mercy of God!
