This wedding started off with the couple getting ready at Hampton Inn in Medina, Ohio. Our video crew broke up into two teams to film this couple as they prepared for the ceremony.
The first team captured detail shots to be used for the animated title and then focused on candid moments of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready, applying makeup and tying the last sash. Our second team covered the groom in a separate room with his brother, father and mother. We couldn’t help but notice how touched his mother was as he put on his jacket and hugged his father before heading out to the church. Both couples recorded pre-wedding messages to each other and the bride had a special moment with her father as we captured the first look at his daughter in her wedding dress.
The wedding party and family gathered for the ceremony at St. Francis Xavier in Medina, Ohio. We put the main camera in the back balcony and the secondary camera was placed in multiple locations in order to get a mix of different perspectives. The crew ran three audio feeds and placed an XY microphone at the podium to get the readers. Throughout the wedding our second camera moved positions and recorded various angles such as the bridal party and bride coming down the aisle, the groom’s first look and shots of the parents and family members.
After the wedding ceremony the bridal party drove off to the reception at Medina Country Club. This is one of our favorite spots for wedding photography and video because the staff is very accommodating and provide golf carts, ladders and anything else we may need to get unique shots around the property.
The DJ allowed us to plug in our XLR wireless transmitter in order to get perfect audio of the music and speeches as the bridal party made their entrance. In addition to the main events at the reception we interviewed friends and family and recorded plenty of dancing from different camera angles. This was definitely one of the most laid back and fun wedding videos we shot this year.
