Cincinnati Wedding Photography, Greg and Jessica 7-9-11

Cincinnati Senior Wedding Photographers Daniel Michael and Amanda Evans Photograph Greg and Jessica.... FINALLY!  It seems like it's been years since the first time I met Greg and Jessica, Oh, wait, that's because it has been!  They came in about two years prior to their wedding!  And it's a good thing too!  I knew immediately when talking with Jessica that she would be a great addition to the team at Images by Daniel Michael Photography.  Turns out that in those two years Jessica had such an impact on our studio that she worked enough to pay for her photography as well as several of her other vendors!  I always felt like this day was so far off and all of a sudden it was this weekend.  Over the last two years I've gotten to know Jessica quite well and Greg a little too.  I can't put into words how happy I am that they found each other.  They are a perfect balance and I wish nothing but wonderful memories and a long and happy life together.

It was also great to see quite a few of our previous couples and I'm pretty sure a few of our future couples as well!  I ran into Jeff and Julie's cousin from 4-2-11 at the Cincinnati Zoo which I photographed as well as Jessica and Greg's cousin and her fiance who were also at that event because Jen works for the Zoo.  Jen and Chad who Amanda photographed 7-31-10, Shannon and Adam who Susan photographed 8-21-10 and the couple that got it all started Amy and Darren who our other Jessica photographed on 5-16-08.  I have one photo of groomsmen in the entire studio and it is of them.  In that photo Greg is a groomsmen and appears to have no legs below his knees!  We corrected that this time!  Thank you to Amy and Darren for choosing us.  Without you, none of this would have been possible and I would have missed out on not only a beautiful night but on some truly beautiful people.  

Ok, enough of the sappy stuff!  Time to let you know who the vendors were!  The outdoor Wedding Ceremony was held in the gazebo at Manor House in Mason Ohio with the Reception immediately following in the Crystal Room.  The Wedding Flowers were provided by Mike and the wonderful people at Nina's Florist.  Jessica's hair was done by her good friend Jen and her wedding day Make Up was done by Nancy from Bridaface (AMAZING!).  The Wedding Video was done by Chris Knight who was a pleasure to work with.  No surprise the guys looked sharp since their tuxes were from the fantastic Peppe Ramundo and Carmen Ramundo.  Jessica's friend Julie helped plan and organize the wedding day and their friend and former teacher was the Wedding Officiant, Kevin Ritter.  Patricia's made the beautiful and delicious Wedding Cake.  And last but not least were the Wedding DJ Kyle and MC Jason from Hey Mr DJ.  I know without any doubt that Jessica would tell you that having Jason as the MC at their wedding completely changed and enhanced the personal aspect of their wedding as well as making for one hell of a party!  I look forward to every opportunity to work with Jason and the guys at Hey Mr DJ because of their incredible preparation and personalization of each wedding. For example (I hope I'm not giving away any secrets here!), but during their first dance, Jason had recorded the vows that Jessica and Greg wrote and incorporated them throughout their first dance song for everyone to hear again.  I want to thank all the vendors for not just doing a great job but for taking such good care of my friends.  I couldn't have worked with a better crew today and I'm not sure any of you truly know how much Jessica and Greg appreciate you.  Ok, time for me to shut up!  I couldn't stop selecting photos so there are about 100 on the Facebook Page as well.
