Cincinnati Weddings Lifetime at 30

{ Hall of Mirrors } Cincinnati Wedding Venues

This is such a wonderful story that you may need a tissue to see and hear. Just 3 short weeks before their wedding the groom’s mother (Denise) was notified that the kidney she had been waiting 2 years for was available. There was no rescheduling her life saving transplant or the wedding. Jenna and Zack’s took place Labor Day Weekend in Cincinnati at the historic Hall of Mirrors inside the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza

We were lucky enough to get to be Denise’s eyes and ears that day.

You really have no idea where you might meet your person. Nate saw Jessa in a beverage aisle and a Whole Foods Market and decided he needed to talk to her.
The rest as they say is history.

He’s only going to see you walk down once!

The next time you’re at a wedding, turn around and watch what the groom is doing. Most wedding videographers miss this moment.
There’s no reason you should.

He’s only going to see you walk down the aisle once. Make sure we get an invitation.

Lifetime Films brought in 2016 at The Brown Hotel in Louisville Kentucky. Only 92 miles from Cincinnati, it’s slowing becoming our 2nd home. We’ll be returning 4 more times in 2017. The upcoming schedule includes two amazing venues The Seelbach Hilton and Hurstbourne Country Club.

Meet Jenny and Darren, who will be celebrating their one year anniversary this Saturday, December 31st. This event went off without a hitch because of top notch wedding professionals including the likes of Maggie Heely and her incredible staff at Weekend Wedding Warrior, LLC and Matt & Christin Berry at Blue Martini Photography.

12 Times a Bridesmaid { Ohio Wedding Films }

This is the perfect couple in the perfect setting. One of our favorites from 2016.
We open with a beautiful welcome toast from mother of the bride Pam Connelly. She tells the story of Meghan’s late father Pat, who would have definitely given his blessing on this night.

The stunning Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel is the backdrop to this wedding trailer.

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.
“H*ly shit, H*ly shit, H*ly shit”

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.
