WatersEdge Wedding Ceremony + Reception | Columbus Wedding Photographers

Lori + Nate’s WatersEdge ceremony and reception was a beautiful day full of love, and we are so glad we were able to be a part of such a celebration. These two had been dreaming of this day for so long, so naturally they had thought of every little detail, even down to Lori's Kate Spade sparkle keds and their Tiffany champagne flutes.

Both the guys and the girls were able to get ready at the venue (on different floors of course!) and so our day began with them at WatersEdge getting ready for their ceremony. The groom and groomsmen were able to go out for their group photos, but the girls took a little longer getting ready and since they chose not to have a first look, we decided to wait until after the ceremony for girls photos. Just before the ceremony, it started to sprinkle outside, but they carried on with a lakeside ceremony. And even though a few raindrops fell, it was totally worth it for that ceremony view. It was beautiful. After the ceremony we were able to get family photos and just a few photos of the full bridal party before the skies opened and it began pouring. Even the clear umbrella they had was not enough to stay out and get more photos. So you'll see a mix of indoor and outdoor photos for their bridal party. Afterwards they were introduced into their reception, welcomed with toasts and enjoyed a lovely dinner.

After dinner, what do you know? The clouds cleared and the sun peeked back out with a little time for a few more couples portraits. We were so glad to be able to get those memories for them! After they cut their cake and tossed the bouquet, the night ended on the dance floor which was so much fun to watch. Their friends have some moves!

Lori + Nate, we're so excited for the two of you and your soon arriving bundle of joy. You are going to make wonderful parents. We hope you and your families' cherish these memories for a long, long time.
