I love flowers, chocolate and adventures in big cities. I need music to fuel my days and lipstick to complete them. I am an endless romantic and adore people in love.

The Benison Event Center- Cameron and Raymond

It was such an honor to work with the wonderful Benison Event Venue crew to photograph their stunning event space in downtown Hamilton, OH! The gorgeous venue has a little bit of everything. Incredible light, antique aesthetics everywhere you look, and a vault that gives a nod to the Little Chicago days of Hamilton.
While planning the shoot, we wanted to make sure to incorporate the vintage aspects of the venue while brining a fresh modern take to all that the venue can create for a wedding day. We brought in sparkling gold linens, vintage furniture, pops of pink and blush in the florals and in the goblets on the table scapes, as well as a beautiful draped Chuppah adorned with flowers. The a gown and grooms attire was the perfect mix of modern and vintage flair.
To make the day even more special, Cameron and Raymond, our gorgeous couple for the event, drove down from Columbus to dress up and be pampered. I had the pleasure of photographing Cameron and Raymond a few years ago for their engagement session. I was thrilled that they were able to make it for the shoot and finally have the romantic photos Cameron had been dreaming of since their elopement. They are the sweetest couple, and it was obvious how in love they are!
The shoot wouldn’t have been possible with out the help of an amazing vendor team! Countless hours were poured into making the morning a success, and it was well worth it! Thank you to all!
