Jacob and Hillary were such a kind and down-to-earth couple! From their engagement session to their wedding day, you could just sense the adoration that they have for one another. There is no question that these two were made for each other!
I started the day with the ladies at Hotel Covington– a chic boutique hotel just across the river from downtown Cincinnati, OH. Hillary stunned in a beautiful gown with a classic silhouette, styled with an elegant updo and veil. While I spent the morning with the girls, Graham relaxed with the guys at Jacob’s childhood home in Northern Kentucky! They wore tailored navy suits complete with a baby-blue bow tie. We loved this fresh color combo for a Spring wedding
They had such a sweet first look- Jacob was so excited that he could hardly stand still waiting to see Hillary! Hillary also chose to have a first look with her dad. I don’t think there was one dry eye in the room. Their relationship is so special!
Jacob and Hillary held their ceremony at Mother of God Roman Catholic Church in the heart of downtown Covington. They took all of their portraits before the ceremony (which we highly recommend!) so they could join cocktail hour and mingle with their guests.
The Mr. and Mrs. celebrated their cocktail hour and reception with their friends and family at The Madison Event Center. They had the room fully decorated with Kentucky & Derby-themed pieces. Because they were married on Derby day- which is basically a holiday in Kentucky!- the couple made sure to incorporate special details and played the race for their guests to enjoy while they sipped their cocktails. We loved seeing the guests dressed in their Derby best dancing the night away with the newlyweds! The couples’ selflessness was also on display at the reception when Hillary made sure her cousin was recognized for her 21st birthday; how sweet of them to think of someone else on their big day!
One of our favorite memories of the day was capturing the sweet embrace Jacob and Hillary shared just after their ceremony… There’s just something about that newly-married bliss!
I hope you enjoy getting to take a look at their summer wedding day!
