columbus ohio wedding photographerOh, this beautiful, beautiful wedding day.

Seriously.  Birds were singing, tulips were in perfect bloom, sun was shining..

Kathy and her friends and family were laughing as they got ready for the day…columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographercolumbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer And Jason.  Jason was smiling and cheers-ing with friends and family at North High Brewery.  columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographerKathy was truly stunning.columbus ohio wedding photographerAnd Jason.  So handsome.columbus ohio wedding photographercolumbus ohio wedding photographer She walked across a garden bridge to see her happy, soon-to-be husband for the first time that day.columbus ohio wedding photographer They kissed.columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer And he held her close.columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer  Then she walked down the aisle with her dad.columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer  And they walked back together, hand-in-hand and happy.columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer  The fine folks at the Boathouse let me climb their tree to get these shots.columbus ohio wedding photographercolumbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographerJason spun his beautiful bride on the dance floor while she sang to him.columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer They kissed as the stars and the lights of the city began to shine.columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographer columbus ohio wedding photographerThey had a beautiful, wonderful day in love, and they shared it with all their friends and family.  The stuff of dreams.  Everything you could hope for in a wedding day!

Except…

Jason woke up with the stomach flu that morning.  No joke.  For the first time in ten years.  Can a math person figure out the odds on that for me?   Because they’ve got to be astounding.  columbus ohio wedding photographer But would you ever have known it from all those pictures up there?  Well, ok, minus the one right directly up there.  Seriously, this guy was a TROOPER.  Most of the wedding guests didn’t even know.  He powered on through that day.  Took breaks from pictures to throw up in the gardens and then pop a mint.  Poor, poor guy!  And Kathy stayed cool as ever through the whole thing, offering sympathy and love and understanding.  columbus ohio wedding photographerTHAT, my friends, is what tells me these two will hold each other’s hands for a lifetime.  Not just the way they look in each other’s eyes or the way they pull in so close when they hug.  It’s the way she looked at him when he was sick on their wedding day, and the way he carried on through the day going on what his heart felt, not what his body felt.  THAT is beauty, right there.  THAT is love.

  1. That was the first time I met my cousin’s husband, and I couldn’t have possible come away more impressed with him. And then I found out 24 hours later that he was really really sick. He’ll forever be a champ in my book!
