Annie and Isaac’s classy wedding in the iconic Mt. Adams neighborhood of Cincinnati was the best start to 2023 weddings! Annie looked like a true princess in her gorgeous dress, delicate gloves, and pearl accents and Isaac most definitely looked the part of her handsome prince.
We started the day off with Annie at her childhood home before heading to Holy Cross Immaculata for their tearful First Look. After taking a few portraits overlooking Cincinnati, we headed back inside to prepare for the ceremony and get Annie tucked away before too many guests saw her. Their Mass was stunning, the musicians did an incredible job, and the Church’s beauty only magnified the beauty of the sacrament we all were witnessing take place.
After their joyful Ceremony, we walked up the block to their venue, The Monastery Event Center to take all their photos around the outside of the Monastery Event Center and the surrounding streets. We finished up their photos back near Holy Cross Immaculata for a super fun tradition. Whenever there is a wedding that takes place at Holy Cross Immaculata and The Monastery Event Center, it is a tradition to have the newly married couple & a bagpipe player lead a parade with all their guests from the church up the hill to the monastery.
Once we made it up the hill back to The Monastery Event Center, it was time to celebrate! And let me tell you, their reception was such a party! Shortly after the dance floor was opened up, the wedding party brought out bright pink light-up cowboy hats which were passed out to everyone and added such a fun twist to the party floor vibe. Right before it was time for Deirdre and me to leave, I snuck outside with Annie and Isaac for some final nighttime photos.
Annie and Isaac, it was such a joy to photograph your wedding!
A huge thank you to all the other vendors who came together to make this day possible!
