Beautiful Winter Wedding | Amy Ann Photography | Via Vecchia Winery | Prodigy Video | Renaissance



Winter weddings are so beautiful! They bring a sense of fresh, bright and renewed beginnings. This is a look back at a previous winter wedding. 2020 brought about a much different year with the Corona Virus. Couples have struggled to plan weddings and the ability to follow through with their plans really brought about a sense of uncertainty.

2021 is almost here and we couldn't be more excited to have a new start!


Leigh and Matt are a match made in heaven. The symbiotic nature between them is captivating.

Amy Ann Photography captured every little moment with an artful eye.

Amy's website says it best:

"Pretty things are fun to photograph; laughter, motion and tears inspire me. I want you to relive your memories in the pictures we make, and even discover moments you didn't know happened! My style is true-to-life, vibrant and in-the-moment. I aim to capture moments and connections that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to you as a couple or family.

If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job! My clients are fun, fearless and diverse, and they’re not just in Columbus! I shoot weddings all over Ohio and beyond.

As an inclusive photographer, my mission from day one has been to capture and represent the love of ALL couples and families! Now in my 10th year of business, and hundreds of weddings later, I am as passionate as ever about the work I do, and why I do it."

Leigh + Matt: Columbus Ohio Winter Wedding at Via Vecchia Winery


The staging of the first look was on the rooftop of the Renaissance in downtown Columbus. This early December wedding may have been cold and windy but the view was totally worth it! This sneak peak of Leigh and Matt gives all the feels. I am a sucker for a first look. It is such a cool time to just enjoy each other in a private and special way. This time is like no other time in your life! Taking every moment in and consciously thinking about it and making it last as long as possible is priceless.


Prodigy Weddings (videography/cinematography) was right there at every beautiful moment as well. Nathan from Prodigy Weddings is one of the best we have ever experienced. They are a must-have for your wedding.

Prodigy Wedding's website says it best and we couldn't say it better.

"We want to tell your wedding story. We want to showcase your love while capturing the memories and preserving them for years to come. We want to capture the unique nature of your relationship and craft a film that will stand the test of time and bring the joy of your special day back to you time after time.

The wedding film has evolved and has become much more than a camcorder in the back of the room. It takes an experienced filmmaker to capture all the angles needed to tell an entrancing story while also respecting the sanctity of the event and not turning it into a movie set. Our goal is to become a natural part of the wedding day and be an enhancement to the event rather than a distraction.

We have designed our films to provide a complete story of the day and allow you to relive those emotions again and again. Our Short Films provide a way to share the special day with anyone in just a few minutes while our Full Length films provide an in depth look inside your wedding story. Your memories of the day will fade but your wedding film will keep those images, sounds, and emotions fresh and vibrant for years to come. "




Check out Amy Ann Photography's Blog Post About This Wedding.  Here is a little clip: "Leigh and Matt’s winter wedding at Via Vecchia was no exception. It was the first weekend of December, and though we narrowly escaped the rain, it was definitely cold and windy out. Luckily Leigh had her fur, her girls had their shawls, and we embraced the cold – and the beautiful light – for gorgeous outdoor pictures!  With the early sunset in December, Leigh and Matt opted to see each other beforehand, to take advantage of daylight for portraits. After getting dressed and exchanging letters, I staged their first look on the rooftop of the Renaissance Columbus Hotel. Nathan from Prodigy Video was also on hand to capture the magic! As you can imagine, we had the rooftop all to ourselves in this winter day. From there, we explored the nearby alleys for wedding party portraits, jumped in the bus and headed to Arch Park for more! That’s when the light came out and made for some gorgeous portraits. I loved Leigh’s classic look, complimented by fabulous flowers by Madison House Designs, hair by Shannon Goode and makeup by State of Face Makeup Artistry!"
