This Renaissance Hotel cincinnati wedding was something to talk about! From the moment I stepped into the bridal suite I knew this would be a good day. Every detail was meticulously arranged and carefully thought out. While planning your wedding, if you have time to arrange your details before your photographer arrives this can be a great way to save time. I’m a big fan of downtown Cincinnati weddings, because there’s an added level of excitement just from the energy of the city. You never know what will happen, who you will run into, or what will go on. I love that.
We stopped at 21C hotel to grab a bite and some champagne to relax. I absolutely love doing things like that on a wedding day! Enjoying time with friends is so important and isn’t stressed enough most of the time. Then we headed to St. Francis Xavier for their full mass. I photograph lots of Catholic weddings in Cincinnati, and many of them are downtown. The architecture is stunning and you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time. It’s important for me to grab as many details about each venue as possible to weave them into the full days story. So even when we’re at a church I still make sure to find time to slip away and grab portraits of the couple.
We had a blast and then went back to the Renaissance for dinner, toast, cake, and dancing. The renaissance has this lovely duality between a contemporary space and the historic building its housed in. The front doors and front entry are stunning, and then when you walk into the very large suites the updated in cool grey tones. I always recommend them for weddings and we actually hosted our photographer their for our wedding too.
