Mr. & Mrs. Barnes | carrolton ohio Wedding

I loved everything about Chris and Amber's wedding! Their details, colors, and venue were beautiful! They both are really kind and I was excited to be sharing in their day!

We took engagement photos 1 year before the wedding, some even finished on my property that has some field area! Their session was beautiful and filled with sunny light! Our neighbors horse may have snuck in a few photos towards the end of the shoot and they were completely game to pose with him. That's when I knew we'd get a long just fine! haha!

I met with them before their wedding a few times and we went over wedding plans! They told me they were planning on Century Farms for their wedding venue, in Carrolton, Ohio! I had shot Jack and Trisha's wedding there before and knew it was completely lovely! And a bonus- it's an air conditioned barn. I didn't know until this wedding because Jack and Trisha's was a pretty crisp Fall day, but wow was that a fun surprise as Amber and Chris' day was a tad warm!

Some of my very favorite moments from Chris & Amber's day were:

  1. Their DETAILS. ALL the prettiness! I particularly loved their dusty blue wedding color, it just looked completely gorgeous! AND Amber's fairytale wedding gown ( I'm just going to call it that). It was SO, SO pretty and I can't get over it!
  2. I loved their wedding sign encouraging guests to not have cell phones out during their ceremony, and their officiant announced at the beginning of ceremony reminding everyone. GUYS. There isn't anything that makes me cringe more than huge cell phones blocking the view of fellow guests or photographers the bride and groom paid to photograph their moments. I KNOW when guests do this they are excited for the couple and want to share in the joy, but their photos are so much less distracting and guests get to BE THERE and enjoy the moment with them- so keep things "ubplugged"! I so appreciate Amber & Chris taking my suggestion and running with it!
  3. Amber and Chris' last few photos of the day were on this gorgeous swing behind the wedding venue and they are definitely my favorite! That fairytale dress was made for that area, and Amber and Chris pulled off the most stunning photos there!

Thank you SO much Amber and Chris, I wish you a lifetime of love & happiness and only the best on your future together!
