When Chris and Emily asked us to photograph their wedding on New Year’s Eve in Cincinnati, OH we were ecstatic. Not only were we excited to get to know Emily and Chris but also the thought of doing what we love and partying into the new year. Emily and Chris are such a fun couple and we could tell right away that their wedding was going to be amazing.
Their wedding was filled with all things glitz and glamor. From the stunning ruby red bridesmaid dresses to the gold sparkly centerpieces and of course the roaring fires. Emily looked stunning in her dress with a button up laced back and capped sleeves from Moon Light Bridal. Chris looked dapper rocking the bow tie in his classic black and white tux.
Chris and Emily met during their freshman orientation at the University of Notre Dame. Chris proposed to Emily by sneaking into her apartment and covering it in rose petals and votive candles. Emily was completely shocked when she opened the door to find Chris waiting for her. You can read more about their story on the blog we did for their engagement session at the Japanese Garden in Georgetown, KY.
Chris and Emily’s wedding ceremony took place at All Saints Catholic Church in Cincinnati, OH. The church was beautifully lit with Christmas decor and dressed with high ceilings and exposed beams making for a very romantic wedding ceremony. Their reception took place at The Cooper Creek Event Center in Blue Ash, OH. We loved the two cozy stone fireplaces that they had inside. Warm fireplaces should definitely be a requirement for all winter weddings. Emily and Chris danced the night away with family and friends celebrating into the new year. Party hats, beads, and party noisemakers filled the dance floor as everyone kissed their sweethearts at midnight. We are so happy for Chris and Emily and are so excited to share the story of their wedding day.
