Cincinnati Nature Center wedding

Brian & Susan's wedding
Cincinnati Nature Center
Krippendorf Lodge

Such a lovely, intimate, and natural wedding at the Cincinnati Nature Center's Krippendorf Lodge. A beautiful setting under towering trees. The flowers and decorations fit the natural surroundings with wood, lichen, and succulent plants... very pretty. Fortunately, the early April weather was absolutely gorgeous and we could take advantage of the wonderful outdoor setting.

Brian and Susan, thank you so much for allowing me the honor. I thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful day. Thank you and congratulations!

After dinner we went out for a few sunset photographs.

I was crouched down in pond's edge peering through branches to get the sunset's reflection.
