Twenty Thirteen

Ashley & Aaron

Ashley and Aaron had the most divine rainy wedding day.  The skies were miserable and gray, except for every defining moment of the day, when perfect light parted the clouds.  It happened during the first look, the portraits, during the post-ceremony rose petal toss — Ohio weather at it’s finest.

Dawn & Jason
