Jodi and Michael | 21c Hotel Wedding with a Fire

Perhaps the most interesting wedding we’ve had the chance to document was Jodi and Michaels. They started getting ready for their wedding at the 21c Museum Hotel in Downtown Cincinnati. Just as Jodi sat to begin makeup the fire alarm went off. We all thought it was a test until we looked out the window and saw firetrucks. We grabbed Jodi’s BHLDN dress and wedding rings and everyone went out the emergency exit. It was, in fact, a pretty large fire. Walking down the emergency exit past the floor where their wedding and reception were supposed to be held the smoke was thick and burned your eyes and lungs. Everyone exited the hotel safely and so we did the only thing we could-stand on the street and watch the fire and firetrucks.

 

After finding out from the wedding coordinator that it wasn’t exactly a small fire Jodi decided to get ready in Nicholson’s pub. Shorty after doing her makeup at the bar and getting dressed in the bathroom Jodi and Michael were allowed back inside for just a few minutes to get married.

Jodi walked up the aisle with her Father and Step-Father to her groom she had been waiting through the chaos to see. Jodi and Michael’s friend married them through tears of happiness and a small group of their family and friends watched tearfully. Their intimate ceremony was followed by cracking up their favourite beer and celebrating before going up to their room to cut the cake that Jodi’s mom made.

Cake was followed by an intimate dinner at Sotto that the 21c Hotel Wedding coordinator arranged and the end of an interesting but very happy day.

 

 

Alanna and Joey

I’m not sure if I have the right words to say how absolutely stunning these are. I am sitting here supposed to be sleeping and moved to tears already! 

You so beautifully captured not only the depth of Joey’s and my connection and relationship but the incredible bond we have with our people. We love each other and our people so much and they love us and that comes through so strongly here. Thank you so much for everything!

The Meisbergers were an unforgettable part of our wedding celebration! 

Like many couples, our wedding was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but Joey and Lauren helped us feel at-ease and supported as we navigated difficult deicions leading up to our celebration. They were communicative and organized, and they took so much of the stress out of our wedding-planning process by talking us through all the details that might otherwise go overlooked.

As photographers, Joey and Lauren went above and beyond to make everyone feel both celebrated and glamorous, and they captured the emotion of the day perfectly. We could not recommend them more whole-heartedly!

"Joey and Lauren both have an incredible eye for detail, but beyond their skills as photographers, it is their kindness, humor, and flexibility that truly shined."

Adam and Grace

The Meisbergers were the perfect photographers for our wedding. Their photos truly captured every moment perfectly, from getting ready in the morning, to a traditional wedding ceremony, to a wild party to finish the night! They also took TONS of pictures of our family and friends, and really captured all of the joy of the day! We had a couple of crazy ideas (that may have involved Joey running around all of our guest tables taking pictures) and they were totally cool with everything! Beautiful detailed photographs, perfectly edited, and a great online platform to view and share photos! Would 100% recommend to anyone!

"Responsive, organized, flexible, and truly adapt to whatever you want on your big day!."

Katie and Mitch

"Lauren was helpful, kind, and captured our day perfectly. She made us both feel comfortable throughout the process and we received our photos in a timely manner. We couldn’t be happier with our experience using Lauren and the final results with our photos.." 

"You guys were stealthy like ninjas." - Kendall's mom
