Ohio Statehouse & The Estate at New Albany Wedding, Columbus, Ohio | Jessica + Dale

Jessica and Dale’s timeless Columbus wedding survived so much. From schedule changes due to pandemic restrictions, protest safety, to even venue and vendor swaps; these two could have thrown their hands in the air to give up. Instead, they pulled off an extraordinary evening, celebrating their love in style.

First let’s chat about this style. Apart from the Vogue moments (Seriously see any black and white photo below), they also used the insurmountable magic of the Ohio Statehouse. From the architecture to the paintings, it was a perfect backdrop for their bridal portraits. Then, they even had a bridesmaids vs groomsmen art re-creation. Let me know who you think did it better!

Second let’s chat about Jessica and Dale. Capturing relationships always will be one of my favorite parts of this profession. Watching magic unfold as a couple becomes husband and wife is an honor. Witnessing these two throughout the day, encapsulate the definition of pure bliss, is a glorious privilege.

Finally, this was Woody’s (my fiancé) favorite wedding (I’m sure). Mainly because we found out during the speeches that Dale is just as much of a Dungeons and Dragons nerd as he is. Oh, you best your butt it was a talking point for the entire car ride home.
