Ballroom Wedding at the Columbus Athletic Club in Ohio – Ivana and Tim

From the moment I met Ivana and Tim, they were two of the kindest, most caring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Their warmth and genuine love for those around them shines in so many ways!!

One of my favorite parts from their wedding was how excited Ivana was about all the details of her wedding and all the people attending. Her face lit up every time she saw someone new to chat with! I loved walking around the decorated reception with her and her bridesmaids (and their adorable flower girls) before the ceremony. She was in awe of everything that was put together, and for good reason! The ballroom was so stunning!

They were married at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Columbus, then headed over to the Athletic Club of Columbus for their reception. I had never shot a wedding at the Athletic Club before, and oh my goodness, was it stunning!! It had gold detailing, gorgeous florals, and beautiful windows all around the space. Later in the evening, we even had a chance to sneak some portraits in there! It was so dreamy, and almost felt like a styled shoot, to say the least! Botanica Flowers really outdid themselves with the florals adorning the tables and the fireplace. Everything was decorated so perfectly! One of my favorite details of the reception were the genuine Croatian heart ornaments for their favors. They were shipped in as a special gift for their guests! It was such a special and unique way to tie in Ivana’s roots. It was also neat to see the Croatian dancing during their reception! It’s so rare to see unique dances, so getting to witness that was special.

I am beyond grateful I was chosen to document their wedding, and I’m so excited to see Ivana and Tim’s marriage grow! Congratulations, you two, and have a BLAST in Hawaii (jealous!).
