HEIDI & RYAN INTIMATE HOCKING HILLS WEDDING // ELOPEMENTS & INTIMATE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // COLORADO // UTAH // ARIZONA // CALIFORNIA
I am SO thrilled to finally share this wedding!! Heidi saw the images from Morgan & Matt's elopement (a couple you see earlier in my blog) and reached out to me, to photograph her intimate wedding in the Hocking Hills. I was so happy. I grew up exploring Old Mans' Cave, taking a serene drive from Columbus to Logan, OH to get away in the hills. But never thought I'd photograph a wedding here.
Heidi & Ryan wanted to have a destination wedding, but also wanted their family and closest friends to be there and not stress about far travel. So they chose an adventurous location close to home. I don't know why more couples don't get married here. it's gorgeous, only an hour outside of Columbus with SO many options for ceremony and reception. Although you can go through the park's reception options, I really like Heidi's style of hiring an outside event venue to really put together the reception she had in mind. You'll see below, it's so classy and romantic. A few of my absolute passions were combined at this wedding; a jazz band, a love story, and being in the middle of the woods. Soul. Filled. Their ceremony took place in Ash Cave, a notorious cave know for it's open size and waterfall. It was beautiful. See for yourself ;)
