Melanie and Joshua’s Backyard Fall Wedding in Cincinnati by Eastlyn & Joshua

Happy Friday everyone how are you all coping with the heat? I have to admit I am hiding from it today and taking Dexter to the nice air conditioned cinema, crazy I know but it’s just too hot for me and my little ginger head! This weekend we are off to Gloworm festival in Nottingham, it’s set to be 31 degrees!! Eek! not sure how long we will last!  and next week when we are actually on holiday at Tattersall Lakes it’s forecast to rain, blooming typical!!  Anyway enough weather chat, lets talk about today’s wedding. Melanie and Joshua were married on 17th October 2020 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Covid did a lot to the wedding industry, most of it bad, however this gorgeous couple took the situation and used it to their advantage and managed to create their dream backyard wedding. Due to the restrictions on numbers they were able to have the fall wedding they had always dreamt of. Big thanks to Eastlyn & Joshua for the lovely photos.

Eastlyn & Joshua tell us more about the wedding

Melanie always dreamed of getting married at her childhood home, but with the amount of people they knew that they wanted to include in the celebration, she never thought it would be possible. However, because of the pandemic and the need to cut the guest list short for everyone’s safety, her childhood dream actually became a reality.

Melanie & Josh held their lovely intimate ceremony next to her parent’s home on top of a hill that overlooks a stunning view of the lake. It was a pleasantly clear and warmer day for mid-October, so the sunset gave off a beautiful glow through the peak fall foliage that lined the driveway.

Bistro lights were strung across the backyard, and guests sat at round tables spaced appropriately apart. Clementine Caravan served drinks (including an amazing hot apple cider), and Cincinnati’s famed The Eagle catered their delicious meal.

Before the drive to the family home, however, Melanie, her mom, and sisters got ready at the brand new and stunning Lytle Park Hotel in downtown Cincinnati. Josh met us there for a private first look with his soon-to-be wife on the rooftop terrace. They both cried happy tears as they exchanged hand-written letters to one another in the warm afternoon sun.
The entire day was simple, intimate, and meaningful—exactly the type of event we love to photograph.
