The Wedding of Kendra and Brandon. Photos by Brad Smith, Photosmith, Cincinnati, Ohio

Kendra and Brandon had a two day wedding celebration. On Friday, they got married at the Leapin Lizard Gallery in Covington in the MainStrasse Village. It's a cool space that serves as both an art gallery and event venue. The building was a church in its former life in the late 1800's. Since then, it has been renovated on all three levels, but still maintains some of the original stained glass windows and an enormous pipe organ. Kendra and Brandon were married by one of their best friends which made it even more special and personal. After the official ceremony on Friday, a small group of family and friends went to Dee Felice (one of Brad's favorite places to go for music, incidentally.) On Saturday, the festivities continued at the Leapin Lizard with a larger group of friends and family. They had all kinds of food including mini burgers, creme brule, and a cupcake tower. The maid of honor performed an original song she had written for the bride and groom. After that, there were two bands, The Downtown County Band and Doghouse. A good time was had by all. Here are a few pics.

Some of these are more candid, some are silly fun, and some are sweet tender. I love looking at photographs. There is so much emotion that can be shown in a picture and sometimes I find myself laughing out loud or smiling or the occasional, awww... --Suz
