A month and a half after Lucky and Matt had their intimate and traditional Indian wedding ceremony at the Cambridge Country Club, in Cambridge, Ohio (a small town east of downtown Columbus), they held a wedding reception for 300 of their closest family and friends at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel. Since Lucky and Matt are such an amazing couple and fun to photograph, I was excited that I got to spend not just one, but two days with them!

After Lucky and Matt were done getting ready in their room, we walked around the downtown Columbus area. We found some beautiful ivy covered walls near the Columbus Athenaeum and then walked to the Ohio State House with a few photo ops along the way. Lucky’s bright pink and orange sari really stood out against Matt’s highly tailored tuxedo and made for some absolutely stunning photographs.

After photos of the beautiful couple, we made our way to the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel’s rooftop pool area to capture some family shots. Soon after, it was time for the party to start!

During the cocktail hour, I snagged some setup shots of the breathtaking decor that Dahlia Occasions coordinated. From the flowers, lighting, and linens…their work was simply stunning and made for one of the most beautiful wedding receptions I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.

After everyone had bellies full of yummy Indian food it was time for speeches and dancing. Once the dancing started, it didn’t slow! Everyone seemed to be having a blast!

As previously mentioned, it was wonderful getting to know Lucky and Matt and I truly wish them all the best. Their love for one another is strong and as a couple, I know they will go far in life.
