A Garden Party Wedding | Fairfield, Ohio
“We love because He first loved us” – 1st John 4:19
Several months ago at Sarah & Ralph’s engagement session, I knew that their wedding would be a precious and highly valued event. They are dedicated to loving the Lord through their marriage relationship, and from the beginning it has been their #1 priority.
Ralph adores Sarah in the sweetest way, and it is continually written on his face. As you scroll through their images, you’ll see the way he looks at her, as though she is a precious jewel, the fairest of them all. Sarah was a glowing bride who truly reminded me of a princess not only in appearance but in her demeanor. Sarah, you were a dream bride. Throughout the day, she was so overjoyed to be marrying the love of her life but remained so calm (even in the heat!).
Not only are Ralph and Sarah genuinely lovely people, but their families are so kind and a joy to be around. Sarah and I met at Scioto Hills Camp back in 2008, and Michael and I both worked with her younger brother, Sam, on summer staff for several years at camp! It always amazes me who the Lord brings back into our lives, even years later.
Their wedding was truly a garden party dream. The colors (light pink, navy, and pops of gold) accentuated Sarah’s custom made dress perfectly. The florals were to die for! You’ll notice when scrolling that I couldn’t get enough of them or the bridesmaids dresses…so there are quite a few of those images included! Their first look took place in her sister’s house. The entry way has a grand staircase and beautiful bay windows. It was the perfect place for Ralph to see his bride for the first time.
Sarah & Ralph, we can’t thank you enough for letting us walk through this precious journey with you!
