Madelyn & Britain Wedding | Brick and Mortar

Madelyn and Britain considered every detail in planning their wedding, and it all started with their invitation suite. Some couples don’t want to put too much thought into the look and feel of their stationary, but it can really set the tone for the event and get guests excited! The couple’s pup Eddie was the bestest boy to announce the reception details with his big grin. The Hilliard print studio “You’re Invited” helped the couple bring their design from idea to print.

The preparations for this special day began in one of the Spa Suites at Le Meridien Hotel – The Joseph in Columbus. It was the perfect setting for getting ready, with its spacious rooms illuminated with natural light. This hotel is set in the heart of downtown Columbus and is just steps from Goodale Park, where we set up their portraits, and it was also a quick drive to the venue, Brick & Mortar North 4th Corridor.

Modern industrial touches make Brick & Mortar a remarkable space for ceremonies and receptions. No expense has been spared in the restoration of the historical Smith Brothers building, and the exposed brick and wood accents and immaculate courtyard serve as perfect backdrops for timeless photos.

One of the best parts of being a photographer is getting to experience the uniqueness of each ceremony and reception. Even though I’m shooting weddings every weekend, I never get bored of taking in the various elements that are selected to celebrate love in ways that matter most to the couple. It’s a well-known tradition to include friends and family in your wedding party, but Madelyn took this a step further by asking her sister Marly to officiate their ceremony. Having a family member in this position really makes it a personal and intimate moment. Madelyn and Britain’s Jewish traditions were thoughtfully incorporated throughout the day, including their final dance, the Horah, where their guests joined in to lift them up to celebrate their newly formed union. It’s always fun to see family and friends join in on dances and to have a chance to share in cultural experiences that are different for each couple I photograph. It’s a very special perk of the job that I definitely don’t take for granted.
