Kumler Chapel Wedding at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio | Kyle & Jessica

Summer weddings are always so beautiful! Between the bright greens and the blue skies, you couldn’t ask for anything better! Okay, well we could do with a little cooler weather every once in a while for the sake of weddings! Regardless of that though, Kyle and Jessica’s wedding on Saturday was wonderful! From the classic color palette to Kumler Chapel which leaves you breathless with it’s arches and architecture, well it would be easy to say that it was beautiful! Even more than that though, Saturday was a day when family and friends were actually able to gather and celebrate the marriage of two people they loved!

We waited in anticipation in the middle of a pandemic to determine whether or not this day in July would be the day that Kyle and Jessica were able to celebrate their wedding as planned! There was so much uncertainty for those months, but they handled it beautifully! Many emails back and forth and a reassuring conversation at their engagement session proved as much! The fun-loving and joking nature of their personalities stood out to me then and really shined throughout each moment of their wedding day! Especially in the midst of portraits! There wasn’t a dull moment!

One of my favorite parts of the day was getting to see Jessica walk down the aisle. Her dress was stunning and pretty much the epitome of class, so all that paired with the stellar aisle and Kumler Chapel and the emotion of walking to see her groom, well it would take anyone’s breath away!

Congratulations, Kyle and Jessica! I’ve so enjoyed the chance to know you better throughout this entire Experience! I’m beyond happy for both! Enjoy the newlywed life and the beach!!
