Wedding on May 29th, 2010 at Kolping Center in Cincinnati, Ohio – (Post by David) “Cathy and David — I absolutely love your style! I know I am getting married right in the heart of the busy season but I am really hoping you are available on that day! I love your style and your work and how the photography seems to be just as important to you as it is to my fiance and me. You are exactly what I have been looking for! Please, please, please be available that day!” These are the sorts of couples we look for and we love getting brides who are so excited about their photos. Even back last July when we were talking about their album options, Tiffany couldn’t get the wedding out of her mind day and night. So when the big day came, she was so excited.
We picked up our friend Amanda Hoffman, who came along as our assistant for the day as she wanted to get some experience shooting weddings. She’s going to be shooting her first wedding on her own soon, so we wanted her to get a little more air-time before she did it alone. Anyways, after dropping off Cat at the salon I met up with the guys at a building by the church where they were doing jumping into bean bag chair contests, seeing how far they could go. It was a little crazy. 😀 Thankfully however the building was air conditioned and was the place to be whenever it got too hot outside for people (we’re talking 90+ degrees, okay? Super-hot for us midwest people). After their ceremony was over and a harrowing adventure in the Mustang getaway car, we went through her list of formals in no time (thanks to their family for being so organized!).
We had so much fun at their reception, shooting in our PhotoBooth (coming up on the next blog entry), listening to the heartfelt toasts and laughing with their family and friends. Everyone at this wedding was warm, inviting and made us feel like family. Even with the guest list topping 350 people (…wow…) it seemed as though everyone knew everyone, and the hugs and cheer never ceased. Everyone danced at their wedding, the waiters, us, the family and friends, even the DJ and his wife at the end (seriously, these two could be on dancing with the stars!!!). We had such a fun time with all of them, and when the lights came back on and the last dance was over, we were sad to go.
