Emily and John don't skimp out on the details. Their wedding was beautifully curated one detail at a time. It started with a sweet gift exchange while they were getting ready for the big day. Emily's sister, Mary Beth sat in front of her and made her feel beautiful with hair curls and makeup. She wore beautiful little flowers in her hair that were a special part in her mother's wedding day. When it was time to go out for portraits, Emily made time to do a first look with her first love, her father. She made sure that behind her father's tie was a simple reminder of how much she loved him. As we went up the large stairs at Ault park, her soon to be husband waited for her at the top. The first look was simply adorable and magical and was followed by John's sweet words and promises to his soon to be wife. He shared his written vows to her at the top of the building. Her officiant wasn't someone she found online but a close friend that was near and dear to both John and Emily's hearts. The wedding took place in a beautiful theater in downtown Cincinnati. The lights on the ceiling set the mood for a wonderful evening. They became husband and wife and enjoyed their first meal together with all of their family and friends. When it was time for the speeches, Mary Beth surprised Emily and her family with a slideshow of old pictures showing how much love surrounded their family. Emily's father continued the surprises with a slideshow of pictures of Emily and her daddy. There wasn't a dry eye in the theater. They smashed cake in each others faces and danced the night away. This day of theirs couldn't have been more perfect.
