Shelby + Josh ~ married

Shelby and Josh were married on a very cold day last October at Cincinnati Nature Center’s beautiful Krippendorf Lodge . Shelby & Josh actually live in California where they are completing grad school, but they decided to have a very small, intimate wedding with just their closest family and friends here in Cincinnati. This wedding was one of the most personalized weddings I have ever been to! Josh has made it a goal to travel to every national park in the country, and he is definitely well on his way – he has been to over 40 national parks so far! Lucky for him, Shelby is the adventurous type and they have enjoyed lots of traveling together since they started dating. I don’t think this outdoorsy couple could have picked a more perfect location to have a wedding, and they really pulled everything together with the details as you will see below.

They designed their programs to look like national park brochures…how creative!

Shelby’s mom hand-made all of these little coats…I thought they were precious!

Everyone had a good laugh as this guy threw the rose petals 🙂 He happens to be Shelby’s sister’s fiance and he was super nice…and I must say secure enough in his manhood to throw rose petals before the Shelby walked down the aisle!

Kalli - I like the little ram ring shot and I love the autumn leaf cake. What a good idea, to visit every national park… I’m kind of a nerd about that stuff and have visited tons of them too. These are so crisp and colorful, good job Kelly!
