Cincinnati Wedding Video | Drees Pavillion | Andrea + Nick
This Cincinnati Wedding Video has gotten a lot of attention online, with almost a million views on YouTube! What a beautiful day this was. What a beautiful couple. What a beautiful way to celebrate their marriage. I had a lot of fun hanging out with these two… they are a special couple. After watching the film, read on to learn a little bit more about the day.
This is the second wedding film I shot this year and the second time doing an interview with the bride and groom before the ceremony. I really like spending this time with them, and getting to know them a little bit, and learning what it is that draws them to one another. I think it is really cool that they have no idea what the other person is seeing until they see the film for the first time. That first time they see the wedding video, it has to be pretty emotional listening to the other say such nice things about you.
The day started at the Cincinnati Marriot, just across the river. From there we went up the big hill at Mt. Adams to the church, Holy Cross Immaculata, which had an amazing view of the skyline. The catholic ceremony lasted over an hour, and from there we went back across the river into Kentucky to the reception location, Drees Pavillion. Before going inside we spent some time in the area around Drees, which was quite beautiful. From there we headed up to the building and spent time with guests before being introduced. The evening went by really quickly, but we were able to spend some time outside after sunset. It was nice to get that time away from all the commotion and I always try to get my couples to break away from the action. It just allows them to take a moment to be together. Not too long after that Nick was doing his famous high kick, after being egged on by his groomsmen. The band was great and kept the crowd dancing all night long!
One of the things I love about weddings is that each one, although consisting of the same components in the same basic timeline, ends up being different. When shooting photos that doesn’t change my job too much. However, with motion, it opens the door for a multitude of directions to take when editing. You can elicit a different emotion depending on what you choose to keep in and leave out. The music can make you feel happy, or sad. You can go on many routes from the same footage.
Finding that route is the hard part. Sometimes things just fall into place and line up perfectly. Other times you will try over and over to get something to go and it just doesn’t work. For this film, things worked out very nicely.
