The Leavitt Wedding, New Riff Distillery

Dan + Jamie
Everleigh Photography, Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Jamie and Dan live in Arizona, and planned their whole Cincinnati wedding day long distance, but you would never be able to tell.  They put precise thought into every detail.  Their decor included a lot of succulents and greenery because they are both biologists and love the outdoors. It was such a wonderful day filled with happiness with their closest friends and family from ALL over the world.  Not to mention, it was 70 degrees and SUNNY.  In February.  Which made this photographer VERY happy.  

I didn't get to meet this couple before the big day due to the distance, but they were both so relaxed and inviting, it felt like I was among friends immediately.  These two met in Arizona and have such a unique love story.  Jamie, a girl after my own heart, really played hard to get and made Dan work for her affection.  Her rule was that she would agree to seem him once a month.  This went on for WHILE  before she finally gave in to the fact that she had found her Prince Charming.  They started a life together in Arizona where they love adventuring together.

On the day they made it official, Jamie was calm and collected, and Dan looked at her like her couldn't believe his luck.  It was a truly beautiful and heart warming thing to witness.

Jamie and Dan, I can't thank you enough for choosing me to document the story of your wedding day.  There was anticipation, laughter, tears, friendship, family, and a lot of love.  Enjoy a few of my favorite moments from the day.
