Elena and Brandon had a romantic garden party wedding in Cincinnati. It was a gorgeous spring day filled with so much joy. Their celebration was so much fun, and I’m so grateful to have been a part of it.
Brandon grew up in the Hudson Valley of New York. He’s been an athlete since he was young and loves basketball and golf. He and his family even take a golfing trip each year. Meanwhile, Elena grew up in Cincinnati as an avid volleyball player. She moved to New England to play college volleyball and met Brandon while they were both students at Bryant University. They bonded over their love for sports, coffee, food, and traveling. Elena shared that they had a coffee date every weekend where they’d share croissants. How cute! Now, Elena and Brandon live in Boston, Massachusetts. However, since Elena is from Cincinnati, she knew she’d want to get married there.
Brandon proposed in their apartment in Boston, just the two of them. Elena’s sister and her fiancé were in town, so they already had dinner plans with them. When Brandon and Elena got to their favorite restaurant for dinner, both of their families and their best friends were all there. Ultimately, Brandon pulled off the best surprise! Elena had no idea that any of them were even in Boston. Also, we took their engagement photos in Boston, and it was such a fun time. Check out those photos here.
Elena and Brandon’s wedding was held at The Monastery Event Center in Cincinnati.
