Adam & Claire were married at Via Vecchia Winery, Columbus – well actually they were married in the alley behind Via Vecchia Winery but they had their reception indoors afterwards!
With the groom a wedding photographer himself, they put real importance on their images and so set up a pre-wedding ‘first look’ to capture some intimate moments before the ceremony kicked off. For this Claire wore a BHLDN dress designed by Orla Kiely, She changed back into this outfit for the reception but for the ceremony itself she opted to wear her mother’s vintage wedding dress. Adam had no idea she was planning to do this or to even get changed at all, so seeing her walking down the aisle in a different dress than he expected must have been a very special moment indeed.
“We DIYed as much as we could for the wedding”, Claire explained. “It was definitely super stressful at times, but the end result was well worth it! We wanted every part of our wedding to reflect our personal styles. I would also highly recommend Etsy…you can find literally anything on that site! We did everything from the invitations to the food to the décor exactly how we wanted and did not worry if people thought it was too unconventional or weird.”
