When: March 2019
Sandra found me on Instagram and contacted me in June of last year. I met her and her mother at Beans, a great coffeehouse and bakery between Lexington and Cincinnati. We hit it off right away and I was thrilled to photograph Trevor and Sandra’s wedding at The Newport Syndicate, a fun venue near Cincinnati and the waterfront in Newport.
Trevor and Sandra met while working together at a swimming pool venue. They dated for 3 years before Trevor popped the question while on vacation at Virginia Beach. While hanging out on the beach at night, Trevor proposed under the stars and had champagne to toast their new adventure.
Trevor and Sandra’s modern and classic wedding was on a rainy March day in and around Newport, Ky. Sandra looked classic in her lace ball gown styled wedding dress that she found at David’s Bridal. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful matching blue gowns from David’s Bridal. Their bouquets were filled with loose greenery and white flowers from Swan Florist. Trevor and his groomsmen looked trendy and fashionable in their grey suits accented with blue bowties from Folchi’s. Trevor’s suit was darker gray to set him apart from the other men. Trevor also got some fun portraits made with his and Sandra’s cat.
The couple decided against having a first look before their catholic ceremony, but had a moment where they held hands without seeing each other near the alter. The couple were then married in the grand church St. John The Evangelist. The couple had some portraits at the after after the ceremony and in The Newport Syndicate’s Oak Room. Dinner provided by the venue followed inside the ballroom at The Newport Syndicate. The dinner tables were decorated with white linens, blue accents and simple arrangements for that classic look. They had a tasty wedding cake that was made by the Trevor’s grandmother.
The couple had a really fun reception, with a lot of the wedding guests getting down on the dance floor, including Sandra’s 80-year-old grandfather! I also caught a couple of the wedding guests watching the final minutes of one of the NCAA March Madness game on a phone screen. Trevor and Sandra danced and celebrated with family and friends all evening with music provided by McFadden Music and the wedding ended on a high note.
