A couple of weeks ago I was very fortunate to be the photographer for their lovely wedding. The ceremony was nicely done at Hope church in Dayton and then the reception was at Carillon Park in the transportation building. Michelle and Jimmy are a great couple and you can tell they are absolutely into each other. The atmosphere was fun and playful just as was evident during their cake cutting ceremony. I wish them years and years of happiness.
Snow? Wait is that Snow out there? As the sun popped up over the horizon most of Cincinnati was blanketed in a light snow. That didn’t put a chill on the wedding festivities that were about to begin. As the ladies were beginning the process of getting their hair and makeup done at Alba Beauty Studio the snow was all but gone. Sam and Sara are the perfect match of sass and fun with a huge helping of kindness. I seriously doubt they have ever met a stranger. Their love for each other is exuded in all that they do. As the wedding began at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center you could see the anticipation building to begin their new life as husband and wife. The wedding service was a fun representation of who they are with songs reflecting their personalities, they even took time for a celebration dance after the big kiss. If the wedding ceremony was a reflection of the love they feel for each other the reception represented their playful side. I truly think the dancing would have lasted well into the morning if it would have been allowed. I guess I should clarify that I don’t mean dancing by just them or a few people it was everyone. The dance floor was jam packed with smiles and love, and even the occasional twerk, the whole evening.
Sam and Sara, congratulations on your new life together and I wish you a life that includes more love than the day before.
I had the privilege to shoot this wedding with Bryn Weller. The wedding took place at Ault Park, which is an absolutely stunning location. The weather behaved well enough to get most of the pictures done before hand and during the ceremony before the skies opened up. The group then moved onto Washington Park for more pictures before heading into the reception.
