St. John's United Church Of Christ Downtown Dayton Wedding In Snow Venue Photos


Beautiful Downtown Dayton Church For A Wedding


My January 12, 2019 wedding was one of the most unique Dayton or Cincinnati weddings I have ever photographed. To start, we experienced a snow storm that dropped 8 inches of snow across the Dayton region. The heaviest time for the snow storm coincided with the bridal prep, wedding, bridal portraits, and wedding reception. I knew that this beautiful bride would be excited about the snow, and I was correct.

The day started out with hair and makeup at Square One Salon & Spa on Third Street in downtown Dayton, Ohio. As a wedding photographer, I have been to many salons to photograph the bride and bridesmaids getting hair and makeup done. Square One downtown is the most gorgeous and photogenic salon I’ve ever seen. The brick wall, lighting, and nature of the historic building made for the best getting ready photos I’ve ever done. The employees I encountered were all friendly as well. Highly recommend!

The wedding took place at St. John’s United Church of Christ across the street from the salon. It was a beautiful ceremony, and the paster/officiant was really funny. I always appreciate a light-hearted wedding ceremony with some laughter.

After the wedding and 30 minutes of snowy bridal party photos and bridal portraits, we made our way to America’s Packard Museum at 420 South Ludlow Street in downtown Dayton, Ohio. This building, built in 1917 and a former Packard automobile dealership, is the coolest and most unique wedding reception venue I’ve ever been to. There are so many incredible historical cars that we were able to use to create stunning bridal portraits of the bride and groom. The Packard Museum was very accommodating and allowed us to photograph alongside so many of these historical vehicles. I highly recommend this Dayton wedding reception venues for weddings of 175 people or fewer.

Testimonial Review After The Wedding Update: “I highly recommend working with Kevin Lush! He was very professional and so easy to work with! He made sure he understood the vision we had for our photos, and executed it perfectly! Because he offered an engagement shoot with the booking of a wedding package, we were able to get to know him better and I think this helped enhance our experience the day of. One thing I also appreciated was how organized he was on our wedding day! Not only did our traditional photos look great, but Kevin was also able to come up with a lot of creative photo ideas as well. We got our photos back even earlier than promised, along with a complimentary photo book that is a wonderful keepsake! Thank you Kevin!” - Kara F.
