Drooling over beautiful weddings is just something I have become used to, but Jessie and Ryan’s wedding takes classically beautiful weddings to a whole new level. And I suppose why this wedding was featured on The Knot!!!

Jessica and Ryan is a fun young couple who are very much in love and their wedding was a classically romantic and a simply beautiful event.  They have been together for 5+ years .  Ryan is in the Air force, Jessie is a school teacher. Jessie also works with a local florist Floral V Designs and has been planning her wedding flowers for years.  She wanted soft blush colors and lots of texture, very romantic.  Her colors of pale pink and white/ivory spoke true to the fresh and clean romantic feel of the evening. The overwhelming dramatic and gorgeous venue, the Dayton Art Institute truly stands on its own and screams totally EYE CANDY!!! The ceremony took place in the outdoor courtyard at the venue, which provided an intimate and gorgeous space for the “I-Do’s”.  The couple's design elements truly complimented the event space and emphasized on its classic beauty of the venue rather than overwhelm it.

Wedding invitations, programs and menu made by me, her friend and photographer. Guests left the event satisfied visually from the romantically designed space and with full bellies as the couple opted for food stations that featured 20+ types of food.
