Seth and Olivia were married on December 17, 2016, in Frankfort, Kentucky, and chose Reel Special Productions to capture their wedding video. Check it out below.
Seth and Olivia are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet! Olivia contacted us earlier in the year about the possibility of filming her wedding, and when we found out that her future groom happened to be the son of a family we absolutely LOVE, we were thrilled at the possibility of getting to film their wedding video. We know the Haga family from Southland Christian Church (our home church in Lexington, Kentucky) and have been blessed by our friendship with Seth’s mom and dad, Amy and Scott. Our hearts overflowed with gratitude when we showed up on the wedding day and felt like we were surrounded by family!
We first arrived in Frankfort at the home where Olivia and her bridesmaids were getting ready. To say that Olivia was excited would be a bit of an understatement. She was beaming from ear to ear and it was definitely contagious throughout the room. One of Olivia’s sweet friends did her hair and makeup and did a flawless job, if we do say so ourselves! The girls finished getting ready right as it was time for Olivia to slip into her beautiful white dress. Once Olivia put on her sparkly heels and gorgeous jewelry, it was time for her to walk down the stairs to share a first look moment with her dad. It was a special time for sure that we were able to capture for the wedding video and Olivia did a great job at holding back her tears. She looked stunning indeed, but we have to say that her beauty glowed from within. This girl loves Jesus and she sure does love her groom! Before long, we were headed off to Buffalo Trace where Seth and Olivia would share their first look with one another.
Yeah, yeah, yeah…if you’ve read our past wedding video blog posts we know you’re tired of hearing us say how much we love when a bride and groom have a first look before the ceremony, but this was one for the books. You guys, after they saw each other for the first time they read aloud letters they had written one another and It. Was. Amazing. The words they shared were absolutely beautiful and it was even hard for us to hold back our tears…especially for the preggo one out of the bunch! Ha! But seriously, Seth and Olivia took that sweet time to just be with one another and both share how they were feeling. We were so, SO happy to be able to capture this for their wedding video and feel it added such a special touch to their story.
The ceremony was held at the Lancaster at St. Clair in Frankfort, Kentucky. This beautiful church was originally built in the 1800’s and was renovated to be used as an event space. The architectural design and cathedral stained glass windows did not disappoint! As the sunlight faded ushering in the night sky, guests filled the stunning space to watch Seth and Olivia join in marriage. There were so many special touches to the ceremony including Seth’s grandfather citing their vows and special songs performed by both his brother and sister. It was a wonderful ceremony and we loved how their families were a part of it all. Most importantly, Seth and Olivia’s love for the Lord was evident and we know He was honored through this wedding service!
The reception was also held at the Lancaster at St. Clair. After guests enjoyed a brief cocktail hour, the room was beautifully decorated with winter themed centerpieces at each table and candle lit accents created the perfect mood throughout the space. A delicious meal was catered by Johnny Carino’s and once the toasts, cake cutting and special dances were all done, the lights went out and everyone cut loose on the dance floor. We loved capturing some fun wedding video footage of Seth, Olivia and their loved ones dancing the night away!
Seth and Olivia, we absolutely loved filming your wedding! We hope that as you look back on your wedding video you will be able to relive and cherish your amazing day as if it were yesterday. We are so honored and grateful that you chose us to capture it and wish you all the best for many years to come!
