Kate and Erik's Cincinnati Wedding

Kate and Erik had a classic wedding in downtown Cincinnati.  It was one of those amazing fall days when the weather and light gods were on our side.  What sticks out most  about these two is just how well they compliment each other.  They find comfort in each other, something I adore in a couple.  I spent the day with Kate while she got ready with her girls.  Though she didn't seem to be very nervous, I could see a huge sense of relief and happiness come over her when she saw Erik for the first time.  It was awesome to witness.  As we spent a large part of the afternoon taking pictures these two got to enjoy each other and savor every minute.kateanderilbelleventcentre089kateanderilbelleventcentre069kateanderilbelleventcentre070kateanderilbelleventcentre071kateanderilbelleventcentre072kateanderilbelleventcentre079kateanderilbelleventcentre073kateanderilbelleventcentre074kateanderikbelleventcentre_1072kateanderilbelleventcentre075kateanderilbelleventcentre076Kate was a stunning bride. kateanderilbelleventcentre077kateanderikbelleventcentre_1071kateanderilbelleventcentre080kateanderilbelleventcentre082I absolutely love when couples do a first look.  It is such a special moment, and it allows for lots of alone time during the day. kateanderikbelleventcentre_1073kateanderikbelleventcentre_1074kateanderikbelleventcentre_1075kateanderilbelleventcentre083kateanderilbelleventcentre084kateanderilbelleventcentre086kateanderilbelleventcentre087kateanderilbelleventcentre088kateanderilbelleventcentre090kateanderilbelleventcentre091kateanderilbelleventcentre092kateanderilbelleventcentre093kateanderilbelleventcentre094kateanderilbelleventcentre095kateanderilbelleventcentre098kateanderilbelleventcentre099kateanderilbelleventcentre097kateanderilbelleventcentre100kateanderilbelleventcentre101kateanderilbelleventcentre096kateanderilbelleventcentre102kateanderilbelleventcentre103kateanderilbelleventcentre104kateanderikbelleventcentre_1068kateanderikbelleventcentre_1070kateanderikbelleventcentre_1066Ahh this moment is it.  The first embrace alone after becoming husband and wife.  I love when I am able to capture it. kateanderilbelleventcentre105kateanderilbelleventcentre106kateanderikbelleventcentre_1080kateanderilbelleventcentre108After the ceremony we headed to Eden Park for a quick toast with the bridal party.  Kate had some fans. :) kateanderikbelleventcentre_1085kateanderikbelleventcentre_1084kateanderilbelleventcentre109kateanderilbelleventcentre110kateanderikbelleventcentre_1081kateanderikbelleventcentre_1086kateanderilbelleventcentre111The Bell Event Centre is always so spectacular. kateanderikbelleventcentre_1088kateanderikbelleventcentre_1091kateanderilbelleventcentre115
