Athens Ohio Wedding Photography | Jenni and Justin

Athens Ohio Wedding Photography Ohio University 

We started the day at Galbraith Hall as Jenni was getting ready for her wedding.

When it started to rain I didn't think much of it and I always have a backup location for portraits in my mind just in case of bad weather.

Well it rained so hard right before Jenni’s wedding the streets around the guests hotel were staying in flooded!

Jenni and Justin had their first look and we got some portraits done at Memorial Auditorium looking over the downpour and College Green.

The rain was full force like a hurricane. I had one golf umbrella so I gave it to them. Jenni held on to her wedding dress and ran through the rain with Justin. I took the photos of them running. I didn’t think of the photos until I edited them later. I submitted some of the running though the ran photos and got them published in Shutter Magazine!

There was a break in the rain so the family got through the flooded street with the shuttle bus. After the wedding the weather cleared enough for the wedding party to get photos on College Green. We then headed on down to Walter Hall for the reception. I will definitely remember this wedding for the rest of my life!  

Athens Ohio Wedding Photography | Megan and Jake

Athens Ohio is my hometown. I always enjoy shooting weddings there. I had the pleasure to photograph Megan and Jake’s wedding this past year in Athens. We started at the First Presbyterian Church on court street. Megan had the most unique bouquet from Passion Works. After the ceremony we went to College Green for a few more portraits. We then walked to a local Athens bar called The Pub. The reception was held at the OU Inn and had a group photo taken of everyone that went there. Congratulations Megan and Jake!

Athens Ohio Wedding Photographs - Natalie and Jordan

Last month I got to go back to my hometown of Athens to photograph Natalie and Jordan's wedding. I always like going back to Athens and take a break from Columbus and have some great Athens food. I first arrived when Natalie was getting her hair done at the Ohio University Inn. I then traveled to the Walter Hall Rotunda to take a look at the ceremony site. Everything was transformed from a nice looking room to a perfectly decorated ceremony. After the ceremony we went to College Green for some photos and then walked to Baker Center for the reception. Congratulations Natalie and Jordan!

Ohio University Inn Weddings - Athens, Ohio

 

Ohio University Inn is a great venue for Athens Ohio weddings. The venue is located with in walking distance from the Ohio University Campus off of Richland Ave. Their back patio is newly remodeled with a dark stone that cuts down on glare and looks great. The ballroom has plenty of space for most weddings. I always love to go back to Athens for weddings because my parents still live in the area and it will always be my hometown. The location is great for guests that want to stay the night and not worry about driving. The Ridges, Peden Stadium, and College Green are just a short drive away from the hotel. When you are looking to have your ceremony or reception in Athens you have to check out the OU Inn. It is one of the best venues in Athens, Ohio.

Galbreath Chapel Wedding Photographer - Katie and Eliot

I had a great time with Katie and Eliot this past Saturday in Athens, Ohio. Eliot and his groomsmen started at the Hocking Hills zip line course in Logan, Ohio. I wish I could have followed them but going from hill side to hill side might have been very difficult for me to shoot. So I started with Eliot at the Graffiti Wall in Athens. Eliot and his groomsmen painted it as a surprise for Katie as you can see in the photos below. I met up with Katie at the Standard Salon in Athens and we went back to her parents house to get ready. The ceremony was at Galbreath Chapel and had a Bagpiper (Jeff Linn) out front playing as guests arrive. The reception was beautiful and held the Eclipse Company Town. The bike path was also a great location for a few portraits by the railroad tracks. Best of luck to Katie and Eliot and their new life together!

Athens Ohio Wedding Photos - Marissa and Kevin

I absolutely loved Marissa, Kevin and their entire bridal party. They were so much fun. It looked like everyone had a blast. We started at Attitudes in Nelsonville for the hair and makeup. We then went to the Ohio University Inn to get ready to go to the First United Methodist Church for some portraits before the ceremony. I captured some nice moments with Marrisa's Dad giving her away, looking through the church door and Marissa and Kevin walking down the aisle after their fist kiss. We decided to go to the CI for a few quick shots and they turned out great as you can see below. The wedding party walked along college green for a few more portraits before heading into the Baker Center Ballroom for the reception. I can not describe to you how much fun I had photographing their wedding.
Despite a little rain everyone was so happy you could feel it in the air.
