Outdoor tent Cincinnati wedding

Jacqui & Ken's wedding
Outdoor garden wedding

I declare Jacqui and Ken my coolest couple of the year.  They played my absolutely favorite band 'Rush', not once but twice at their reception, including a Neal Peart drum solo. I had to grip the camera tightly to resist air drumming.

In all seriousness, their reception turned out great, despite 2 hours of rain. Jacqui rolled with the punches and kept up amazingly high spirits despite the disappointing weather.  Fortunately, the skies parted and the sun came out about 10 minutes before the scheduled start time, and the garden wedding ceremony went on as planned.  The sun shined the rest of the evening and they had a wonderful celebration.

Jacqui and Ken, congratulations, and thank you for allowing me to capture your memories for you.

I need to give recognition to Hammann's Catering, who could not have been more accommodating, flexible, and helpful.

The wedding ceremony. The chairs were removed for the rain.
The rain stopped just before the ceremony so it went on in the outdoor garden.

Big hug... taken just seconds after the photograph above.
