Yet Another Published Dayton Wedding Memorial Hall Antioch Shrine Bridal And Formal

Dayton Wedding Photographer Published Again (7th Time In 2018)


This year, 2018, I have had several weddings published by various online publications. Today, Tacari Weddings, a great wedding website published one of my favorite 2018 weddings. Being a published Dayton and Cincinnati wedding photographer further validates my work as a professional photographer, but more importantly, it shows off the beautiful people and parties I get to photograph!

Original Blog Post:

On a 93 degree day in June 2018, I photographed a stunning couple at Memorial Hall Dayton and Antioch Temple Dayton, both in downtown Dayton, Ohio.  The wedding was short and sweet, and due to having no air-conditioning, it was sweltering in the grand lobby of Memorial Hall.  After we boarded the party bus, we made a stop at 3rd Street and Edwin C. Moses Boulevard to create bridal party portraits with downtown Dayton in the background.  Then we headed to Troll Pub on Wayne Avenue for the bridal party to get a quick drink.  We ended the day at Antioch Temple at the corner of 1st Street and Jefferson Street.  The bride and groom booked the second-floor ballroom, and the wedding reception was awesome.  I wanted to give props to the staff at Antioch Temple and to Mrs. B's Catering!

Ohio Barn Bed And Breakfast Wedding And Reception Dayton

Where To Have A Barn Wedding Near Dayton Ohio


On a blustery fall Saturday, I photographed a small wedding and reception at The Ohio Barn, one of the best historic barn wedding venues in Dayton and Cincinnati. This wedding and reception venue near the intersection of interstate 675 and interstate 70 sits on a large plot of land that houses two historic homes, four barns, two smokehouses, outdoor ceremony location, and endless photo opportunities.

The property doubles as a bed and breakfast with rooms in the basement of the barn and in a historic brick home from the 1800’s. The barn is beautiful, and the grounds are covered in large trees. There are so many opportunities for bridal portraits, that I didn’t have time to explore many of them. This a dream wedding venue for me, the photographer.

Although I’ve only been to this venue once, I can’t wait to go back. The owners are incredibly nice, and they provided heaters for the guests to stay warm. I recommend this property to anyone wanting a barn wedding with 100 guests or fewer!

Testimonial Review Update After The Wedding: “Kevin is a natural with the camera and makes everyone laugh with silly jokes. He doesn’t waste time and his pictures are always pretty. Thank you for making our day fun!“ - Alyssa M.


Benham's Grove Wedding And Reception Photos Centerville Ohio 2018

Wedding Pics At Benham’s Grove In Centerville


Each year I photograph exactly one wedding at Benham's Grove in Centerville, Ohio.  This home, circa 1885, is located near the intersection of State Route 48 and State Route 725 and is beautiful.  Being close to these roads means this Dayton wedding and reception venue should be noisy and busy.  However, this property is very quiet due to the large amount of trees on the property.  Overall, this is a good location for a Dayton wedding and reception.

Here are the reasons why you should choose Benham's Grove to host your wedding and reception!

  • Historic home and property

  • Beautiful gazebo for wedding ceremony

  • Permanent tent for larger groups

  • Party barn with bar for dancing and smaller celebrations

  • Covered patio with room for 9 round tables

  • Pond with fountain

  • Trees and well-maintained landscaping

  • Groom's house and getting ready room

  • Bridal suite upstairs in historic 1885 home

  • Free parking

  • Close to major highway

The wedding in late September 2018 went very well, and everyone had a very good time.  Of all the 172 other weddings I've photographed, this was the shortest ceremony I have seen.  We had a short amount of time for bridal portraits and family photos before everyone wanted to eat and party.  Cincinnati wedding photographers can get to this venue in about 45 minutes, so keep that in mind if you are a Cincinnati bride and groom!

Wedding And Reception Venue: Benham's Grove

Catering / Caterer: Troni's

Testimonial Review Update After The Wedding: "Kevin photographed our wedding a few weeks ago and he did amazing! We got over 1000 pictures back, and we even got them back in a timely manner! Kevin was professional, kind and knew exactly what we wanted. We cannot thank him enough for capturing our day! We also got an 8X10 coffee table book, and man oh man do we LOVE it! Kevin definitely went above and beyond with that coffee table book. I also want to note that Kevin saw us (bride & groom) without a drink and quickly got us one, which he did not have to do, but it was much appreciated! Thank you Kevin!" - Laurie L.
