"As we grow old together, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change . . . I will always keep falling in love with you."
Kira and Matt were married back in 2020, but due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, they opted for an intimate elopement at Raccoon Creek State Park. You can read about that beautiful day here. A year later, they celebrated their anniversary with an awesome reception party at Le Chateau Pier in Smithfield, OH. This venue is such a hidden gem and I loved getting to spend the evening there photographing all the fun events of Kira and Matt's night.
It was such a wonderful night complete with s'mores and campfire songs at the end of the night. There was plenty of dancing, good food, and great people. We played it low-key and only took a few portraits when the sunset was at it's most glorious. When Matt and the guys were standing around smoking cigars, I was struck with an idea and grabbed some lights, just for kicks and giggles.
It was wonderful to see how many people came out to celebrate Kira and Matt's love. I hadn't actually shot an anniversary reception before, so I wasn't sure what exactly to expect, but I knew that it would be awesome simply because Kira and Matt are awesome. They've been so much fun to work with over the years and I'm glad to have been a part of their story.
