CEP on the Chenese Bean blog | Cincinnati Wedding + Event Planning

Chenese recently did our make-up for our photoshoot with Tine last week. She featured us on her blog today. It's been a long time since I've had my make-up done and Chenese did an amazing job! Visit her blog here.

Doesn't this look like it could easily be the cover of the next Cincinnati Wedding magazine? The images from this wedding shot by Amanda Donaho are stunning. Check out Amanda's blog for more eye candy (and trust me, there is plenty!)


tiffany + dan = married | Real Weddings Cincinnati, Ohio

I thought it was only on you tube, but I have now seen it in person. Tiffany and Dan wowed their guests at the Manor House with a choreographed first dance routine. When I heard David Bowe's "Magic Dance" start playing I was so excited. The song is from my all time favorite movie, Labyrinth. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw Tiffany, the oh so quiet bride, break into dance. It was awesome, wish I would have had a video camera. The wedding and reception took on a classy, chic, nature ambience. Tiffany looked stunning in her fitted gown, with Dan standing proud in all white. A great day, and her dad made me laugh a lot too. Who doesn't love a funny family. Congratulations on your wedding.

There is something so retro yet classic about this image by Neysa Ruhl. She looks positively smitten, right? I love all the images from this couple's wedding. Check out Neysa's blog for more.


cynthia + eric = happy anniversary

Two years and two days ago one of my favorite brides married a pretty fantastic man. Cynthia's approach to the wedding was laid-back. She wanted all of her guests to have a good time but didn't fret over details that weren't important to her + eric. However, she put some amazing personal touches into the decor - including growing her own centerpieces. the overall feel was a retro fifties garden party with style. Check out more details on cynthia + eric's client page here.

Happy anniversary Cynthia + Eric!!!

melissa + jeremy = happy anniversary

Wow. Three years (and a day). I can't believe it. It was a beautiful summer day + gorgeous dress (that barely fit in the car!) + gorgeous flowers + gorgeous couple.

Three years, one little guy and one more due in just under a week. You two are a wonderful couple - love you both!

happy anniversary!
