Wedding at 1883 Locale

I am so excited to share Megan & Jonathan’s wedding at 1883 Locale. Megan and Jonathan are such a sweet couple. They met in 2017 while in college at Miami University. When Jonathan was ready to ask Megan to marry him he took her back to the campus where they met and asked her while walking the grounds.

Megan is an archeologist and incorporated her love of artifacts into the wedding décor with antique pieces throughout the tables. The muted teal, coral, and peach color palette was inspired by the colors of the antique pieces. Megan and Jonathan chose to have their wedding at 1883 Local because they loved the history of the building and the industrial aesthetic it provides.

We chose to have the first look inside the venue. The morning was rainy and I wanted to make sure Megan stayed dry before the portraits. One thing I have learned over the years is that everyone’s first look looks differently. Megan and Jonathan’s was one of the most romantic first looks I have seen. You could just see the love pouring out of them. It can be hard to forget the camera is there and be truly in the moment but when Jonathan turned around it was like they were the only two in the whole room. I love when couples can fully immerse themself in this moment, it gives me such a great chance to get a lot of candid loving moments between the bride and groom. Once I get what I need I back away and give them a moment to truly be alone in the moment.

With most weddings we are used to hearing speeches from the wedding party. Megan and Jonathan opted to have family members provide a speech. Megan’s mom gave one that left everyone,  including me in tears and one of Jonathan’s grandma’s provided a speech that had everyone laughing, while also providing some great advice for the newlyweds.
