Rachel and Rob envisioned an elegant affair that reflected their playful personalities. With the help of Oh So Lovely Events, they achieved a colorful and sophisticated wedding their loved ones will always remember. Jessica Love Photography beautifully captured the vibrant color palette of cobalt, tangerine, fuchsia, and kelly green, as well as the sweetest moments shared between Rachel and Rob during their first look before saying “I do!” As if the bold colors and tender glances weren’t enough, we can’t get over our love for Rachel’s wedding gown, which was handmade by her mother!
Rachel and Rob
Dock580, Columbus, Ohio
We really wanted our wedding to have a simple elegance to it. We wanted all of our guests to feel welcome and comfortable and appropriately thanked for being a part of our wedding day. We also wanted to be sure that we were creating a day that honored both of our families. Marie, our wedding planner, was a huge help in taking our abstract ramblings of ideas and feelings and transforming them into design and decor.
My favorite moment from the wedding was the first look. So many of the big moments in our relationship have been just the two of us. We really wanted an opportunity to have that moment on our wedding day as well. It was so special.
Also, I wouldn’t call myself a high stress bride, but there were definitely some jitters there on the morning of the wedding. When we got to see each other, it was like a weight had been lifted. Everything was instantly better that we were together.
The Couple Recommends:
Marie Gilman from Oh So Lovely Events is amazing! She’s actually a friend of ours from undergrad, so it was so great to have someone who knew us so well and who knows the wedding industry so well helping us through it all. She never pushed her personal design preferences on us – she helped us find what we liked and represented us as a couple.
Gretel Adams from Sunny Meadows Flower Farm made the most beautiful arrangements. They were organic and elegant and more than I could have imagined.
Jessica Love is incredible! We knew after doing an engagement shoot with her that we loved working with her, and the wedding day just further proved that. She has such a calming demeanor, is a true professional, and captures the moments so beautifully and naturally.
