If you are looking for venues around Dayton, I recommend having your wedding at Cedar Springs Pavilion. This wedding venue is a hidden gem in Springfield Ohio. This Tuscan-styled venue rests on a 17-acre nature preserve. With an abundance of wildflowers, beautiful architecture, and the butterfly house you will have endless options for portraits around the property.
I had the pleasure of being the second photographer at Josie and Griffin’s August wedding. The ceremony took place at the gazebo. The lake behind them made for the most beautiful backdrop. The bridesmaids were dressed in a light blue that complimented everyone and Griffin and his men were in formal military attire. Josie’s Father performed the ceremony. I love to see when a couple has a family member officiate, doing so brings a special touch to the ceremony. Griffin and Josie walked through the Arch of Sabors and shared another kiss. As they continued walking Griffin was playfully swatted with the swords as he walked through. This was probably my favorite part of the whole day as it was just so different from what I normally get to see!
Cedar Spring Pavilion has a gorgeous reception space. The open-air concept is perfect to allow your reception to stay cool while also keeping you and your guest sheltered. Your guests can easily transition between the outdoor space and get quickly back to the dance floor. The open concept also allows you and your guests to enjoy the most gorgeous sunsets. The sunset makes the most spectacular backdrop and I highly recommend trying to time your first dance around it. You will not regret it. Be sure to scroll to Josie’s dance with her dad when looking through the pictures so you can see for yourself.
If you plan to have your wedding at Cedar Springs Pavilion be sure to contact me for your photography. This is one venue that I am eager to get back to!
