Wedding at The Lift in Dayton Ohio

December 8, 2023

Having your wedding at The Lift in Dayton Ohio offers beautiful open spaces, wall to wall natural lighting, high ceilings, a gorgeous entry area, and the perfect suites for you to get ready in.

Upon arrival I was taken aback by the beautiful entry area full of natural lighting, gorgeous gold accents, bright orange armchairs (I’m a sucker for orange) and beautiful modern chandeliers (this space was definitely utilized a lot for portraits).

The girls got ready in their bridal suite and all I can say is wow, The Lift did a spectacular job preparing this room.

Side by side makeup tables lined the back wall for your Hollywood vanity shots, tons of natural light, a separate room to hang your dresses and change in, a bathroom, and a small kitchenette.

What more could you ask for?

The mens room wasn’t any less amazing with lots of storage for the mens clothing, a lounge area with tables to play your games (Poker seemed to be Preston’s game of choice), a bathroom, and any amenity the men could’ve asked for.

Both suites are located upstairs across the loft from one another.

Despite being a mostly fluid area, The Lift offers a layout that helps create separate spaces while remaining open and easily accessible.

Downstairs Olivia and Preston set up the ceremony space with beautiful greenery and baby’s breath, while upstairs they hosted dinner and danced the night away.

After they were dressed and ready to go we took advantage of the balcony loft upstairs we were able to execute a beautiful first look between Olivia and her father and a first touch between Olivia and Preston.

The day went as amazing as we could have ever imagined, it never gets old listening to my couples express their emotions for one another and their day was definitely full of tear jerker moments.

From a beautiful ceremony, portraits with both families, time to themselves, and a grand entrance full of smiles and laughter, I really don’t think I can pinpoint a favorite moment.

During speeches you could tell that Olivia and Preston took the time to melt into one another while they were surrounded by their loved ones, expressing love and reminiscing over past memories and new journeys to come, they even gave a speech to the father’s since it was Father’s Day which was extra special. Speaking of Father’s Day, Olivia’s father daughter dance was also one for the books, consisting of so many epic flawless dance moves they definitely blew everyone away.

By the end of the night when everyone was danced out, Olivia and Preston had one final dance surrounded by all their loved ones then ran off through a bubble exit and headed out in their getaway car, everyone cheering and congratulating the new Mr. and Mrs.!
