I love traveling back to my home-state of Ohio. It’s especially fun when I get to go back and photograph a wedding of a dear friend! I grew up down the street from Sarah. Her sister Shawne and I were best friends, and would ride bikes and play on a regular basis. I used to go on vacations to the beach with the O’Connell family and Shawne would come to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with our family.
It was a joy for me to see Sarah again and meet Steve. He is so sweet and adores Sarah, which is always an important quality when hoping to marry a long-time friend 🙂 Sarah and Steve got married at St. Andrews Catholic Church in Upper Arlington, which was also special for me since I grew up attending St. Andrews for much of my childhood. Their reception was at the beautiful Ivory Room, overlooking the Columbus city skyline. Sarah and the girls had their makeup done by the talented Tim Maurer of Mukha, who creates custom make-up and other products that are 100% mineral based. If you’re in Columbus, stop in and check out this unique place.
Sarah and Steve, I wish you a lifetime of joy and deep love! Congratulations, friends.
