A few years ago I photographed Rachel’s sister’s wedding here in Cincinnati, so walking into this wedding day felt like reuniting with old friends. The excitement & anticipation for Rachel & Jake’s wedding day, while taking lots of twists and turns through this strange year, couldn’t be shaken. They celebrated with their closest friends & family at the always beautiful Monastery Event Center for both their ceremony & reception. The gorgeous florals by The Budding Florist perfectly complimented the sleek, black bridesmaid gowns. At the end of the night, after the guests exited the building – the shared a final dance of the evening focused back on what matters most: The two of them.
