Country Music Hall of Fame - Bride and Groom kissing in front of Wightman Chapel

Country Music Hall of Fame Wedding Video | Nashville, TN | Katie + Kendall

This was my second time shooting a wedding in Nashville and it just so happened to be almost a carbon copy of the first time I filmed in the Music City.  The bride and groom got married in the same chapel and had their reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame, just like the first couple.  

Let me talk a little bit about Katie and Kendall.  These two were amazing. I met them on Friday at the chapel for the rehearsal. I had yet to meet them in person and had only been in touch with them via email.  Katie was very sweet and made sure everything was okay with me getting in.  When I met Kendall, I knew within seconds that this guy was a good dude.  He just has a presence about him.  He, like Katie, is very considerate and wanted to make sure all was well with me.  He seemed very genuine.  Watching the two of them together, I just knew they were a perfect pair.  We went down into the heart of Nashville for the Rehearsal dinner at Rock Bottom.  I snuck out with my drone and got some amazing shots of the Nashville with lightning storms in the distance. It was beautiful!

The day of the wedding was a lot of fun. We started at the Omni Hotel and had an amazing view of the city from the hotel suite they got ready in. After she was ready to go we headed to the church and completed final prep.  Since it was raining, we decided to do their interviews inside the chapel.  Both interviews went really well and Kendall had some really nice things to say about Katie. He even broke down a little bit and had to take some time to regain composure. I love seeing that sort of thing! It was so sweet. 

The ceremony was filled emotion.  The sun had been obscured for most the afternoon but broke out from behind the clouds during the ceremony, shining light directly into the chapel through the stained glass windows in the back.   It was really cool.  After the ceremony, the family stepped outside to take photos and I decided to get the drone out and fly it INSIDE the church. I was so nervous. I checked with the coordinator there first to make sure I was allowed.

We then headed to the Country Music Hall of Fame.  Last time I was here we were on the top floor. This time we were in the space on the ground floor, which was really cool as well. It had really high ceilings with windows going up the whole northern side.  A long set of stairs arced around the back of the room and allowed for me to get some interesting angles of the whole room. The party was great and the two of them were full of joy.  They exited through an orange and white tunnel of Tennessee pom poms, a perfect ending!

Some screenshots from the day.

What an amazing day in Cincinnati. Note to brides wanting to have an outdoor wedding in Ohio in late September... if it ends up being sunny it will be one of the nicest days of the year. This day was absolutely perfect. Ault Park is a fabulous location to have a wedding. Jessica and Jacob are two class people with huge hearts. Their love for each other is evident, as is their love for God and his providence. This film was fairly easy to edit due to the fact that I had so much footage to work with. Some of the most beautiful moments to date were captured on this day. I love the shots at the end of everyone dancing. The sun was just setting ...

Amy and Nick – Short Film
Had a wonderful time shooting Amy and Nick's April wedding. The two of them have very big hearts for each other and their families. Family from all over the world came to witness the event, and not one left unsatisfied. The attention to detail was spectacular and no single thing was looked over in the planning of the day. It was great to be a part of all of it, and share in a very memorable day for these two. Best of luck in Minnesota!
