The Beatties | 12.19.14 | A Governors Scholar Program Love Story

Julie + Lucas - Cincinnati, Ohio

The Madison Event Center

In mid December, we had the pleasure of traveling to Cincinnati, Ohio to NOT ONLY film a wedding...but celebrate two dear friends of ours who were about to begin one of the most exciting chapters in their lives together.

(You might even recognize that the best man in this wedding looks a little familiar ;) )

Lucas & Julie's love story began during the Governor's Scholar Program in 2009, the summer before they would both enter into their senior year of high school. They were both placed at Morehead State University's campus for the program. It's crazy how God works out the details so perfectly for us! Obviously, Lucas & Julie became fast friends at GSP & their friendship blossomed into a beautiful relationship. I think everyone could agree that they are made for one another & everyone who spent time around them that summer were rooting for them!

Six sweet years of dating later, Lucas popped the question to Julie. She, of course, said yes! And they began the adventure of wedding planning.

Six days before Christmas, friends & family of the two traveled to Ohio to celebrate a union that had been much anticipated since the day these two met!

Their Catholic wedding ceremony took place in a beautiful cathedral that hugged the shore of the Ohio River. We could not get over the intricate details of the inside of the chapel.
It. Was. Stunning.

Following their ceremony, we traveled into the city of Cincinnati to the Madison Event Center, where guests were treated to hors-d'oeuvres while waiting for the arrival of the newly married Mr. & Mrs. Beattie. The caterers prepared a delicious meal for everyone. Lucas & Julie sweetly displayed photographs of their family members for everyone to look at. Hot chocolate gift favors were spread out on each table for guests to take home with them as a heartfelt "thank you" from the bride & groom. Lucas's aunt, Julie Gregory, helped provide some fun & entertainment with her photo booth & props! And, of course, the DJ did a wonderful job at making sure guests were having a blast on the dance floor.

This wedding was an absolute delight to witness, film, & be a small part of. The love shared between these two families is so very evident. It fills our hearts with JOY knowing that their friends & families are just as excited about their marriage as they are!

We love this couple & know that they are going to do big things!

Thank you so much for letting us be a small part of such a big day,

Allison & Tyler
