September was an eventful month for us. We drove across the country, returning from our summer trip in the Pacific Northwest. We were excited to get back home to Cincinnati, and Kara and Brian’s wedding was a wonderful welcome home for us. Cooper Creek is such a great venue, starting with the loft for Kara getting ready and her first look with her dad. The large windows provide such elegant backlighting for those pictures.
Blue Ash Golf Course is a premier championship course which sits just outside the grounds of the event center. Kara and Brian had their first look in a quiet area on the course, shaded by large overhanging trees. We love capturing the first look surrounded by greenery as it brings out the natural emotions of the moment. The course landscape also provides opportunities to get some amazing photos with the grand venue in the background.
After their beautiful ceremony at St. Susanna, we returned to Cooper Creek for the evening’s festivities. The ballroom dance floor is really spacious and Kara and Brian took full use of it! Their guests definitely had a fabulous time celebrating with the newlyweds. It was also perfect for the touching speech from Kara’s father and the toasts from their best man and maid of honor. We had such a great day, and we are thrilled to share a few of our favorite photos with you.
