Humans are stronger together and happier together. Brandi and Caleb are two beautiful souls who make a radiant and unbeatable team. And, to make their stunning wedding day a home run, they had many more players on the team, with magical results. Brandi and Caleb showered their rustic, cozy fall day in fall foliage, tea lights, vibrantly colored mums, and distressed wood accents. And so many family members had a hand in it—Brandi’s uncle prepared a gorgeous spread of homemade appetizers for cocktail hour and her brother Nicholas officiated the ceremony, while her grandfather Keith crafted the ceremony arbor and antiqued doors at the foot of the aisle, for starters. Every detail was attended to. And Brandi and Caleb were so appreciative of the support of their family and team.
The day started early with getting ready photos. Stylist Crystal Lugo Dunstan was adding finishing touches to the bridesmaids’ hair when we arrived to the spacious bridal lounge at Encore Hall and Suites
in Millersburg, Ohio. The venue is situated in a lush valley, surrounded by trees and blue skies. We were able to sneak outside with the bride and her party for a few photos before the ceremony to utilize the dramatic cloudy sky.
After a sunny and warm ceremony and an efficient round of family photos, we made our way through the lawn for portraits of Brandi and Caleb. Brandi wore a gorgeous lace gown with a stunning plunging back and a cascading cathedral veil. She was absolutely beaming and calm all day long! Caleb wore a classic dark tux with powder blue silk accents. The bridesmaids always wore a light blue hue, that made the autumnal colors of their bouquets pop.
The wedding reception in Millersburg was spectacular. The wall of tall windows, the tea lights, the red/orange uplighting, the rustic brass chandeliers and lantern center pieces all added to the cozy and bright environment.
The energy of the party just continued to grow all night long as everyone made their way to the dance floor. Dancers of all ages were ready to show off their moves. Jim and his assistant/guitarist of Marino Brothers
kept the party going and the music coming all throughout the night. There was no better place to be!
We felt so lucky to witness all the love of Brandi and Caleb, and all the hard work their family put in to make their day extra special. What a remarkable family full of support for the big journey ahead!
