Oh how plans change. From the first time we met with Lori and Jack to the day of the wedding we went from a temple to The Olmsted. It's funny how when brides book ICVideo for their wedding Cinematography in Kentucky that things change. Sometimes it's the colors of the day, maybe a bridesmaid or groomsman, and sometimes even a venue. For our final meeting before the big day we met and I always ask the same question to start. "So where and what time is the wedding?" .
So let's think about this. You've trusted and paid someone likely thousands of dollars for a service on your wedding day.... and they don't know where or when. 90% of the time we get a comical look and the exact time and location matches to our notes, the contract, emails, and our memory. But those 10% that don't, boy are we glad we asked. Now Jack and Lori let us know beforehand that the venue had changed, but I still asked at our final meeting just a few days before. The Olmsted, not The Temple, just making sure:)
We had a great time with Jack and Lori. Fun loving people that had a smile for every step they took that day. We were able to work with one of our favorite photographers, Robert Burge of Robert Burge Photography (view his website here). If you happen to look at his blog the last two weddings he has posted were worked with ICVideo as well. Rburge.com is definitely a great place to go and look for inspiration.
Filming for the day started about an hour and a half before the ceremony and we were able to get some gorgeous shots of The Olmsted. It's a very short time of year that we have such perfect colors to film. We love to take the time to set the stage for the day with how the day "felt". It was also warm enough that everyone was able to go out and capture some shots pretty much throughout the day before and after the ceremony.
We've done many weddings at The Olmsted and one of the biggest questions we get is how was the set-up? Where was the ceremony, how did they flip the rooms, and what do you think? This one had the ceremony in the center, cocktail to the left (facing the fireplace), dinner on the right (which was hidden until the curtains were opened, and back to the left for the key reception events. If you're wondering how your wedding should be, I only have one answer. Go with whatever Jeri says. If you book The Olmsted, Jeri is a masterful orchestrator of how your day will unfold. With her previous tenure at the Brown Hotel for years, she's the perfect answer for how your day should go.
As the day progressed we captured many, many great moments and when we got to the reception Entertainment Essentials was the perfect crew for the job. Lori and Jack were light on on their feet and music and lighting were perfect accents. Eric and his team always please. You can visit their Facebook page here.
