Dee Dee & Kyle's Outdoor Wellington Wedding

September 17, 2010 | Weddings

Deanna contacted me about 5 weeks before her wedding. She comes from a very artistic family and was having a homespun wedding on her parents' beautiful land in Wellington, Ohio. As with many DIY wedding couples, they are working so hard on so many of the details of their wedding that they suddenly realize how important it is to hire a professional to capture their wedding day and not take any chances. In my opinion (and of course I really love and value photography) it is the most important thing to spend your money on.
