WEdding at WatersEdge Event & Conference Center in hilliard, Oh.

Benjy and Jessica's October 21st wedding at the WatersEdge Event & Conference Center in Hilliard, Ohio, was a testament to the enduring power of love. Even a surprise downpour couldn't dampen the spirits of this beaming couple and their adoring families. Jean-Leigh Photography was there to capture every heartwarming moment, from the emotional first looks to the dance floor finale.

A Palette of Nature's Beauty: Stepping into the WatersEdge is like entering a haven of natural elegance.  It is located near Columbus, Ohio. Soaring ceilings bathed in sunlight, a stunning stone fireplace, and separate, well-appointed getting-ready spaces set the stage for a seamless and stress-free wedding experience. As Jessica shared an emotional first look with her father and Benjy, the venue's ambiance provided the perfect backdrop for tender moments.

Shifting Gears with Grace: Though Mother Nature had other plans for the outdoor ceremony, the WatersEdge team with some help from the family transitioned flawlessly to the beautiful indoor space. The venue's adaptability ensures that every celebration, rain or shine, unfolds flawlessly.  Everyone took the rain in stride and didn't let it dampen the joy of the day.

Celebrating Love in Every Detail: Benjy and Jessica's wedding wasn't just about the stunning venue or the impeccable service. It was about the love shared between two souls and the joy surrounding them. The color palette, a harmonious blend of blues, greens, and silver, complimented the serene landscape outside and added to the venue's natural elegance. Every detail, from the delicious in-house catering to the energetic (venue-supplied!) DJ, spoke volumes about their thoughtful planning and desire to create a joyful experience for everyone.

There were countless unforgettable moments throughout the day. The touching story behind the bracelet (one of my favorite moments) – A close family member gifted the bride a bracelet she had worn as a child in the family members wedding and engraved it with the couples name.

Venturing out onto the gorgeous WatersEdge grounds, amidst the vibrant fall foliage and serene lake, provided the perfect setting for stunning photographs that captured the couple's playful spirit and deep connection.

The Night ended with amazing music as guests danced with happiness, fueled by the delicious cupcakes from Abby Grace Bakes and the irresistible wedding cake and maybe some drinks.  Plus the rain cleared and we had an epic view of the sunset! Witnessing Benjy and Jessica twirl beneath the twinkling lights, surrounded by their loved ones, was an honor and a true joy.

Benjy and Jessica's wedding at WatersEdge was a a day full of love, resilience, and fun.
