Boy oh boy! Y’all better grab a sack because this may be one of the longest blog posts I’ve ever shared! Where do I even begin with these two? We’ve been with Bri & Eddie from the beginning, Eddie reached out to me back in January of 2020 when he wanted to plan the perfect proposal for Bri! We helped him get everything in order down to all the little details and needless to say she said yes! Fast forward to June 2021 and these two got to tie the knot at the most elegant celebration!
We traveled all the way to Cleveland Ohio to celebrate with these love birds! Eddie and Bri got married surrounded by family and friends at Saint John Cantius Church and celebrated at The Old Courthouse in downtown Cleveland. From beginning to end their day was pure perfection thanks to Stephanie and her amazing team at Kirk Brides. Eddie & Bri met back in 2018 on Bumble when they both had just moved to Columbus after college. After a few days of chatting on the app, we finally made plans to go on our first date. Eddie showed up at Bri’s apartment with flowers in hand and was a perfect gentleman which was an incredible foreshadowing of the future of their relationship. They then did out-of-state long-distance for a year when Eddie had to move for work and according to Bri “it is true that absence makes the heart grow fonder!” Eddie finally moved back to Ohio and just a few months later he planned a surprise trip to The Greenbrier in West Virginia and asked Bri to marry him. Exactly one year later from their engagement these two got married!
There is no denying how stunning this day was from top to bottom. Including Bri and Eddies themselves, talk about a hot couple! But what struck me most about these two was not their gorgeous smiles or perfectly curated details, but it was how kind and warm they were to every single person and each other. Each moment of the day held so much meaning for this couple beyond the obvious. I truly felt the excitement and energy radiating from both of them in anticipation to finally say “I do.” You could tell both Eddie and Bri were in a state of complete bliss the entire day, knowing they had finally found their best friend and person to spend forever with. The same bliss radiated into every interaction they had on their day. Absolutely nothing was going to stop these two from celebrating their love.
Eddie and Bri, we are so honored and blessed you chose us to capture your love from the start. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Reising! We love you guys! Enjoy some of my favorite snaps from their day!
A huge thank you to the team of vendors who made this day possible!
