Intimate Family Ceremony at Scioto Grove Metro Park

Kristie & Matt |5.1.20

Ever since Covid-19 entered our lives a few months ago, the future for traditional wedding celebrations has been uncertain. I feel so much sympathy for engaged couples navigating this unprecedented situation, and if that’s you, I want you to know that all is not lost!

Kristie and Matt were originally planning their wedding to take place in late April at Jorgensen Farms. We actually photographed a portion of their engagement session on site at the venue, and looking back now, I’m so glad we took that opportunity! With their original plans disrupted by Covid-19, they chose to say their vows surrounded by their closest family and friends on a beautiful sunny day overlooking the river.

Matt and Kristie’s love story didn’t begin in a traditional way. Their journey actually began a few years ago when Matt’s grandfather found himself in the emergency room. He thought that one of his nurses, soft yet fierce with a sweet smile, would be the perfect match for his grandson… and (spoiler alert), that nurse was Kristie! One thing led to another, and just a few weeks ago, Matt’s grandfather (now fully recovered) officiated their wedding.

I absolutely loved being a part of this intimate celebration! It really does go to show that love conquers all, and more important than the party is the story that your relationship tells. Kristie and Matt are planning on hosting a huge celebration post-Covid, and I can’t wait to capture that chapter of their story too. Enjoy some of my favorite images from their wedding day!
