Kortni & Josh | Winter Wedding at the Bertram Inn | Aurora, Ohio
Love looks completely different to each and every single one of us – but we all know it when we see it. Seeing two people get married that are truly best friends is an experience that I don’t take for granted or take lightly.
When you see two people that you can tell just get each other, and are right for each other, and who look at each other like they are the only two people in the world, it gives you a true sense of what a relationship ultimately is, and how beautiful, unique, and perfectly flawed they each can be.

A Winter Wedding at the Bertram Inn
Before the Ceremony
My morning started out like any other frigid January morning – with me heading out and meeting the guys for some good ol’ skeet shooting. I mean, who doesn’t skeet shoot on their wedding day morning?
Josh and his groomsmen, as well as his dad, and even the father of the bride made it out for some shooting fun. Don’t worry, Josh made it out unscathed and ready to face the day ahead.
Meanwhile, his bride to be was getting ready herself, and my wife Samantha captured some absolutely stunning photos of Kortni before the wedding ceremony. The heirloom fur stole belonged to Kortni’s grandmother and was especially sentimental to her.
Josh looks very handsome and focused as he looks out the window at the future before him. He daydreams of the woman he adores and cherishes the most, as he prepares to marry the love of his life.
Bridesmaids & Groomsmen
I can’t even begin to describe the closeness, or the bond that these young ladies share. Being Kortni’s sisters, it doesn’t get any closer. The joy they had on this day can be summed up in this photo of them, all smiles, all together.
The groom and his posse look serious and ready, but behind the scenes, they were as cool as could be, laughing and having fun as they were gearing up for the ceremony to come.
Don’t forget the nephew of the bride either, looking too cool for school with his mohawk, sunglasses, and his “This is Really Happening” sign. Oh, and a huge shoutout to all the people that helped pull off this winter wedding at the Bertram Inn, and for putting together and hosting such a beautiful winter event.

The Wedding Ceremony
The beautiful ceremony space at the Bertram Inn in Aurora was absolutely packed with loving friends and family. They came from all over to see these two tie the knot. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, and that included the grooms.
The gorgeous custom made altar was made by none other than the bride’s father. It was a gorgeous addition to the space, and worked perfectly for the unity candle ceremony as well.
The New Mr. & Mrs.
Right after the ceremony was over, we got all of the family portraits out of the way so we could take this lovely new couple out into the snow and get some intimate shots of the new Mr. & Mrs.
These two are crazy in love with each other, and they don’t try to hide it or pretend they’re not. The intensity is real, and it’s beautiful.
That snowfall is the real thing too, ladies and gents. Mother nature has the most amazing timing some times, and we are just lucky enough to be there to see it, experience it, and capture it to relive again and again…just like now.
Cake Cutting, First Dance & Passing the Torch
The post-ceremony festivities kicked off with the entrance of the couple and the cutting of the cake right off the bat. After that, it was right into the new couples very first dance as husband and wife. These two are sweet and silly at the same time, and it shows.
The toasts were touching and heartfelt, and the passing of the torch from brother-in-law to new brother-in-law was hilarious and from the heart as well.
The party continued on into the night, and we had a blast capturing it for Josh and Kortni.
