Ever since meeting Jon and Raenell nearly a year ago, I have continually admired how special and sweet this couple is. Both of them are kind, strong individuals who settle for nothing less than excellence in their pursuits, and I absolutely loved capturing their love story! From beginning to end, their burgundy and champagne winter wedding took your breath away. Every last detail, from the bridesmaids’ fur wraps to bubbles showering the dance floor during their first dance as husband and wife, created the perfect winter fairytale wedding.
Even more memorable than all the gorgeous details were the personal touches sprinkled throughout Raenell and John’s wedding day. Raenell’s mom, Christine, actually made Raenell’s wedding gown, and I couldn’t stop admiring it all day! The layers, the lace, and the hand-beaded appliqué combined to create one of the most beautiful wedding dresses I’ve ever seen, and Raenell looked just stunning in it! Jon fit right next to his bride in a classic black tux, and the tears they both shed during their ceremony and reception said it all… I can’t wait to spend forever with you.
Raenell and Jon, I hope you had an amazing time in Jamaica and aren’t too upset about the blizzard conditions you returned to! That’s Ohio for you 😉 Enjoy these favorites from your beautiful wedding day! To everyone else reading this, I hope you’re inspired and take just as much joy from this beautiful couple and their celebration.
