Kelly & Justin | The Grand Event Center, Columbus Wedding | Kayla Bertke photography & design

I cannot talk highly enough about this couple! They were absolutely a joy to get to know over this past year and have brought so much happiness to my life. From the moment I met Kelly over a 40 minute FaceTime call, I just knew they were going to be a wonderful couple to serve!

On their wedding day, I walked into the room where all the girls were getting ready and was greeted by a room full of laughter where they were all playing a game of “heads up.” They were all finished with their hair and makeup early and just having a ball!

Kelly wanted to have a first look with both her bridesmaids and father and they were both the sweetest thing ever. You could feel how much love surrounds this group of friends and family.

Justin and Kelly both wrote vows to one another and shared them just between the two of them in an intimate moment following their first look (which is becoming my favorite thing for my couples to do). I think it’s so sweet to have this moment to yourselves and not have to worry about getting nervous in front of all your guests while sharing your vows.

After their beautiful ceremony and fun reception, we headed back out for sunset photos where we ended the night photographing on the beautiful streets of Columbus.

Kelly and Justin: Thank you for choosing me to captute this chapter in your lives. I am so grateful for you guys and I hope you had a blast in California!
