Katie & Mark at The Columbus Athenaeum!

The Columbus Athenaeum in Ohio, is one of my favorite venues to serve as the wedding officiant for brides and grooms like Katie and Mark. The staff at this venue are very organized and punctual, and this can be very helpful as so much of a wedding is on a timeline! Ann Clark does a fantastic job and she was their wedding coordinator that day. In this first photo, Katie and Mark are having a great time together as they stand outdoors in downtown Columbus.

Wedding officiant, Damian King, checks in with bride before her ceremony in Columbus Ohio.One of my favorite parts of any wedding ceremony for me is when the words, "You may kiss the bride!", are spoken. And Mark truly kisses his bride! The guests were cheering and I was over to the side enjoying the reaction of all those in attendance.
