Audrey and Will's barn wedding at The Shepard Place in Casstown, Ohio was the perfect cozy, chilly, fall day in November full of joy and smiling faces.

If you don't remember Audrey and Will's NYC-inspired engagement session on the Roebling Bridge in downtown Cincinnati, you'll want to check that out first! Their wedding, however, was on a much colder day in November, full of orange trees, blue skies, and red lipstick.

Audrey and Will's friends from NYC, amongst other places, came to visit for their wedding. It was both a reunion for their friends, a celebration with family, and a party with pretty much everyone there. Grandma was dancing more than I ever could without hearing my knees pop (lol), Audrey's bridesmaids were allllll over that YMCA dance, and Will's mother even cried while dancing with him for their mother-son dance. If there was one highlight from this wedding, the amount of dancing was it, from kids to grandparents and everyone in between. Audrey's dress was of course perfect for all that spinning around, and her fur jacket and rhinestone shoes added the perfect pop of glitter and texture for their cozy fall wedding in Ohio.

I absolutely loved getting to photograph all of her details with the lace from her dress, the sparkly shoes, and their rings. All the white from this wedding in the details and portraits is giving me liiiiiife!

Plus, Audrey can ROCK a red lipstick like nobody else, which stood out even more with her all-white outfit and the fall colors surrounding her during their portraits.

It was the sweetest thing to see Audrey walking down the aisle with her grandfather and listening to him pray before everyone at the start of the ceremony. I think it was a picture for the books, and everyone else agreed.

Y'all already know that portraits are my favorite part of the wedding day...

These all-white wedding portraits are SO amazing!!! I knew as soon as I pulled up to the Shepard Place that I wanted pictures of Audrey and Will in front of the white barn. It makes the red and white wedding flowers pop, Will in his black suit stand out a little more, and makes the day look so bright and happy (which it obviously was, and you'll get more of that vibe in the reception photos). Black and white is such a classic combo, and as much as I LOVE colorful wedding pictures, letting these two shine with a more plain background is 100% something I stand behind.

The white buildings were perfect with the fall colors for these wedding portraits.

I'm usually a big fan of summer and spring greens, but the way these oranges popped against the white building everywhere + complemented the flowers and lipstick so well made me feel differently. It definitely has me excited for all my weddings coming up this October due to lots of Covid reschedules.

Maybe it's the purple with the orange, maybe it's the red, maybe it's literally just how freaking happy these two look that makes me love these pictures so much...but they're definitely some of my all-time favorite wedding pictures!

Audrey and Will's wedding reception was kept cozy from the heaters, lots of dancing and drinks, and lots of love from friends and family in town to visit and celebrate these lovebirds. It was super evident that they were madly in love and in the best way--more than just "hey you're cute"--but "hey I really am in love with you and wanna spend my entire life with you until I die" which is probably how it should be...but these two showed it.

We ended the night with some night wedding portraits under the midnight blue sky, in front of the barn everyone else was still dancing in before we did some sparklers for their grand exit. Sparkler exits are tricky, but I still love how the final photo came out. Nothing beats the absolute joy on their faces throughout this whole day. Not just the happy couple, but all the guests in attendance were absolutely overjoyed to be at this cozy fall wedding on a cold November day.
