Kristina and Doug’s wedding day was picture perfect! Their So Serene wedding photos were gorgeous and I absolutely loved this venue. It had so many beautiful locations around it.
The SoSerene website describes their grounds as. “A marbled building overlooks the water and is surrounded by brick terracing and walkways. Attached to the building is an outdoor kitchen, quaint Venetian Room and covered Pergola with a built-in stone chill bar, beautiful stone wall with fireplace and elevated bandstand.” It was truly a beautiful sight!
My day started with getting ready photos on a family property in Wapakoneta, Ohio. I was there to capture Kristina’s beautiful wedding day details such as her dress, shoes, and accessories. I also grabbed lots of details while hair and makeup were being finished up. After the girls were finished, I headed to a nearby hotel and said hello to the guys and grabbed some quick shots of Doug getting ready.
I headed to SoSerene where Kristina prepared and got ready in her dress. The couple had their first look on the grounds and I was able to grab portraits for the couple, bridal party, and family portraits before the ceremony began. This allowed the couple to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests and get a little break from photos before the reception.
The reception was absolutely beautiful right by the water. It was tranquil and a perfect setting for the couple to say their vows. The reception was one big party and guests were on the dance floor all night! It was quite a fun event! Towards the middle of the reception, Shirley’s Popcorn was brought out for the guests to enjoy a late-night snack as well as special dog treats for guests to take home to their fur babies. What a cute touch!
Congratulations to this AMAZING couple! It was quite a day and their guests will talk about it for years to come!
