In kindergarten, Levi and Jill’s twin brother were in the same class, so through the years, they were always in each other’s orbit – especially growing up in a small town like Grove City. But they didn’t start dating until they reconnected at a dive bar in their hometown when they were all grown up.

Within a year, they had made the big move to Colorado together where they really started their careers and bought a house. That was seven years ago (eight years together!) Still, the decision to come home for their wedding was a natural one. Jill’s brother was married on the property several years ago.

Jill and Levi always planned for a backyard wedding, even before Covid forced so many people to have a backyard wedding. To call this a backyard is an understatement, it’s really more acreage fronting a private lake. These two had an open air ceremony, sunny skies, a tented reception, a bar inside the barn, and food trucks to feed all the guests.

I know Jill’s dad worked very hard on this wedding – he built the copper archway. Jill’s mom and dad looked far and wide for unique colorful vintage glass goblets to be used as beverage cups throughout the night (also very eco-friendly). Between the house, the little camp style cabin, the lake and docks, the greenery, and the vintage Airstream – I was in photographer heaven! If every reception venue could have these photo locations – my job would be easy-peasy every weekend!

I loved all the emotion of the day and Jill and Levi’s mellow, relaxed, and unruffled wedding style. It was so great to spend the day in the great outdoors capturing the first day of their marriage!

Note to the couple:
