On Sunday, July 10, 2011, Mark Munger and Jessica Wiedmann celebrated their wedding day! The 4:00 ceremony, officiated by Brent Allen, took place in the original barn at the beautiful Links at Firestone Farms, the original homestead of Harvey Firestone, located in Columbiana, Ohio.
Their reception immediately followed in the banquet hall, with formal introductions taking place at 6:00. Their bridal party entered to “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas while Mark and Jessica made their grand entrance, with everyone cheering and clapping, accompanied by “How Sweet It Is” by Michael Buble.
I was great to share two “firsts”, as it was the first time I have been to the Links at Firestone Farms and the first time I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jack Jew, owner of Say Cheese Photography. It wasn’t, however, the first time to share a special day with the Munger family, as I had provided entertainment for Mark’s brother, Alan, on his wedding day in July of 2009. It was wonderful to see everyone again!
During dinner, with catering provided by the staff at Firestone Farms, Mark and Jessica’s guests were treated to a photo montage, produced and presented by Red Hot Chameleon Entertainment, highlighting various times of their lives.
After dinner, Mark and Jessica cut their cake, accompanied by “A Wink And A Smile” by Harry Connick, Jr. Special dances followed, beginning with Mark and Jessica’s first dance as husband and wife, accompanied by their chosen song, “My Best Friend” by Tim McGraw. Jessica then shared a dance with her father, John, accompanied by “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Mark and his mother, Alice, also shared a special dance, accompanied by “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. The bridal party was then invited out to the dance floor to kick off open dancing to Mark and Jessica’s chosen song, “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison.
It was a real pleasure to be a part of Mark and Jessica’s wedding day! The evening concluded with their great friends and family all sharing the last dance of the evening with them, accompanied by their chosen song, ”The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra.
Mark and Jessica will enjoy their honeymoon in Marco Island, Florida!
