Our Unforgettable Experience

Photographing the first large-scale wedding at TQL Stadium was nothing short of magical. The couple, Alyssa and David, envisioned a wedding that combined elegance with a touch of sports-themed fun, and TQL Stadium delivered beyond expectations.

The cocktail hour took place in the stunning CTI Cincinnatus Club lounge, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the city skyline. The natural light pouring in created a dreamy atmosphere, perfect for capturing those intimate moments. For the reception, the guests moved to a separate club space area (Bahl & Gaynor Pitch View Club), which was beautifully decorated with elegant drapery and sophisticated lighting, transforming the space into a chic, modern ballroom.

Photography Highlights:

  • First Look: The couple’s first look was staged at the pitch, with the stadium seats in the background. The vastness of the stadium added a dramatic effect to this intimate moment.
