Good morning, everyone!! Last night I stayed up and edited while watching the election! I was able to spend five and a half hours in front of my computer getting this beautiful wedding done! Check it out!
Alexis and Zach got married on October 22nd at Oglebay in Wheeling, WV. They had both their ceremony and reception at Camp Russell. I think Camp Russell is a hidden gem. Who knew?! It’s so pretty! It’s nestled back in the forest past the Good Zoo. It’s a great location for a rustic, fall wedding! Everyone considering an outdoor ceremony and country reception should check it out. This day was chilly though. It was strange too because just five days before the temperature was in the eighties! We all embraced it though and the day couldn’t have gone better!
They had some good details!!!
Here’s some nice black and whites of the groom getting ready!
Check out these groomsmen!
I don’t usually have this many black and white images of the bride getting ready but I couldn’t resist!! Alexis was very natural and easy to photograph while getting ready! We had lots of room to move around too which always helps! She got ready in one of Oglebay’s cabins!
The bridesmaids had a lot of fun showing off their personalities!
It was sooo chilly and these girls just rocked it! You’d never know from the pictures how cold they really were!
Time for the ceremony!
The shot from the back was captured by my second shooter! Thanks, Cynthia!
We did some traditional formals at the mansion, of course!
Alexis’ parents have been married for 27 years! The picture they are holding was taken in the exact same spot they were standing! Such a sweet memory!!!!
So in love! I really love these formal shots!
The sky was sooo pretty!
Alexis requested a shot of the rings on the pumpkin! It turned out so pretty!
This next picture screams fall wedding….fall time…..beautiful couple!
Now, let’s get this party started!!!!!
Alexis and Zach did a glow stick send off at the end of the night!
Congrats to the two of you!!!! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it all!!
