CONGRATULATIONS MR. + MRS. MAKINSON
The newlyweds asked Scholl Photography and I to photograph their wedding day, and I was SUPER excited!!! Not just because they are got married at a gorgeous location.. but because I love Alonna <3 She is literally the sweetest person I know so I was so happy to be able to capture the story of her wedding. Check it out below - it was a magical day.
The day started bright and early with Alonna and the rest of her bridal party getting all glammed up by Simply hair and makeup. The girls looked absolutely STUNNING. They had sleepover the night before and got ready the morning of at the historic Mariemont Inn.
it's all in the details and Alonna made all her jewelry herself <3
After everyone was picture perfect we headed to Ault Park to get ready. Originally the plan was to finish getting into the dress at the hotel, so I jumped for joy when she decided to get ready at the pavilion instead. These windows = perfection.
Thinking about doing a first look ? My vote is "YES!"
The bride and groom decided to have small wedding parties consisting of just their siblings. I love the feel of small bridal parties. You can definitely see the family resemblances.
THE " I DO'S "
I love everyone watching the bride, while the groom's mom turned to see his reaction <3
"I can only give you love that lasts forever, And a promise to be near each time you call. And the only heart I own. For you and you alone. That's all, That's all"
The bride and groom scheduled a time to sneak away together to the rooftop at sunset. It was perfect.
