{Cincinnati wedding videography}-“A lot of happiness”

There was a lot of happiness. From our final event of 2013…. a Christmas wedding from December 28th-Matt and Christy’s wedding took place at St. Thomas Catholic Church and Drees Pavilion. Huge thanks to one of our favorite photographers Sherri Barber for being a great teammate.

We have some extraordinary state of the art toys coming with our 2014 wedding films. Look for a new advanced look and feel in Cincinnati wedding films coming this Spring.

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.

{ wedding reception venue } Cincinnati Netherland Plaza

You have a lot of wonderful choices in Cincinnati for top rated wedding venues. Hands down one of our most popular locations is the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, specifically the Hall of Mirrors. In September we returned to capture Kelly and Brandon’s wedding reception. These two we’re incredible to work with and there was no shortage of emotions ( especially when Kelly entered the room). One of the other key moments in this wedding trailer was the room reveal with just the bride and groom. We highly recommend doing this regardless of where you choose to hold your celebration.
This is an amazing opportunity for just the two of you to see the entire room uninterrupted.

Leslie and Trey’s October 10, 2015 wedding at Camargo Club has to be one of the most beautiful outdoor weddings we have ever captured. In between the heartfelt toasts from parents and siblings, both the bride and groom share their voices to help tell this wonderful story of two families joining together. Huge thanks to Jamie and the fine staff at Camargo Club for taking such great care of us and the crew at Michael Bambino and Company.
