Wedding Filmmaker Ohio { A Moment with Dad }

Probably one of the most emotional times in a wedding is right before the bride walks down the aisle. There’s an amazing moment that (last less than a minute) right before the doors open. Some brides have described as looking down from a high cliff, it’s terrifying, yet exhilarating. Back in April we captured absolute gold with Kate and her father. She had described weeks before the wedding of what she thought it would feel like. She was “on point” with her description of what would happen. It was so priceless, he father used that exact moment to open his toast.

Wedding Videographers Cincinnati

A Christmas wedding in July. This is a sweet film we delivered last winter. Meet Nadyne and Ben, who tied the Knot December 5, 2015 at Mt Washington Presbyterian and held their reception at spectacular Hyde Park Country Club.
This bride may look familiar, she’s been a Lifetime stalker for years, referring us to many family an friends since her sister Lauren’s wedding in 2010.
We could not wait to capture this milestone for her.

Here’s what Nadyne thought after receiving her full feature wedding film”

“Lifetime captures the moments that mean the most and bring the day to life all over again!!! Thank you thank you!!! Our video was perfect and captured every single moment we wanted to relive and let us see the ones we had no idea even took place! What a beautiful heartfelt way to live the our best day ever over and over again”!!!

-Nadyne (Hayden) Sukys February 16, 2016

Lifetime at 25 { Cincinnati Wedding Films }

In June of 1991, there were about 3 wedding videographers in Greater Cincinnati. Most “wedding videos” (as they were referred to back then) consisted of one VHS camera, a lot of people waving table to table at a reception and the occasional “Cinderella Spin” (a young lady twirling to metamorphose into a bride). See ABC’s Wonder Woman Series 1975-1979. It was in that same month of June we delivered our very first wedding film to a young couple on the westside of Cincinnati. The picture and sound quality were rough compared to what you see today, but they loved seeing and hearing everything again. Another bride that year mentioned that her wedding video made her mother cry.

And so Lifetime Video (later Films) was born.

Twenty five years later we’re still telling stories that let people feel their wedding all over again. One of the greatest compliments was a few years ago when a bride sent me a wonderful card that ended “…thank you for letting me be a guest at my own wedding.”

Thanks to all the people that made sure we received an invitation to this one incredible day.

Weddings in Cincinnati – The Queen City Club

Established in 1874 the Queen City Club is the oldest and most prestigious wedding venue in downtown Cincinnati. The club is located on East 4th Street in a 4 story limestone English Renaissance Revival building. The exterior is embossed with the four segments of society: art, architecture, industry, and commerce. The interior (as you’ll see is even more exquisite).

Meet Michelle and Nick who tied the Knot at St. Ursula on November 21, 2016 and held the reception at the Queen City Club. This was the 2nd occasion we documented for the Carley family. We captured Michelle’s sister Melissa’s wedding in May of 2014. Wonderful working along side Neysa and Megan from Bell & Blanc Photography and the amazing Courtenay Lambert Floral.

Renaissance Cincinnati { Wedding Videography }

Imagine attending a friend’s wedding in a city far away from your home in Chicago. At the reception you’re introduced to a very attractive person who not only lives in your neighborhood, but in the same building….on the same 6th floor! Well it happened! The odds could not have been more in favor on this chance meeting for Meaghan and Michael. As things progressed, they fell in love and we were lucky enough to not only capture their wedding, but to tell this story.

Shot in October 2015 at the historic Saint Xavier Church and the new Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel.
