Early October. Historic venue. Stunning couple. This, combined with the ever-talented eye of Ben Elsass Photography, is the recipe for truly striking wedding images. Ellen and Matt chose The Monastery (a Cincinnati landmark) as the backdrop for their vows and celebration. Their modern aesthetic beautifully contrasted the 19th century structure. 

Ellen and Matt's custom day-of paper goods feature clean lines and casual script in a modern black and white palette. We added an earthy olive green wreath (that mirrors the foliage-forward bouquets!) around their new shared initial.
