Romantic Wichita Wedding at Distillery 244 with a Live Band and Smoke Bombs St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton
This video shows the highlights of a beautiful romantic wedding day. We start off at the couple's old town apartment and the bride's parents where they are getting ready for the special occasion. Which we LOVED! Talk about the perfect apartment. Plus there was a cat! The best part was the wedding venue Distillery 244 was just around the corner. They could just walk home after the wedding reception.
The groom was looking sharp in a black turtleneck and men's ware wedding suit. We always have plenty to say about wedding dresses, but Zach was looking pretty dapper in his black turtle neck and sports jacket. It was a vibe. And of course, Zach wouldn't be complete without his breathtaking bride-to-be Caitline, as she sparkles in her wedding dress down the aisle.
Then, we head to the beautiful Church of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. We've filmed here a few times, and we always look forward to it. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church has always been one of our favorite churches to create wedding films. It's big and open and we always have a great time. Plus they have great big stained glass that allows so much light into the sanctuary.
The wedding flora arrangements they had were perfect. We're always surprised but how beautiful Free State Floral's work is. We always recommend them and are always excited when we hear that they'll be in charge of creating the wedding bouquet.
Some couples like to do first look, so they can share a sweet and private moment. Some other couples prefer to wait to see each other down the aisle. Caitlin & Zach met somewhere inbetween.
Its whats called a first touch. We backed both the bride and groom and hid them arund a corner. The held hands and read thier love letters to eacher.
First touches are common, but we do always encourage our couples to have these moments. Especially since the day just flies by with one thing after another. Its important to take the time to, stop, breath, and be present in the moment.
The ceremony includes an emotional exchange of vows and a stunning bride walking down the aisle with her father. After that, it's time for some fun as the guests join in for a grand celebration.
After the wedding ceremony and wedding party photos at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, we decided to take the wedding party over to Riverside for some wedding photo fun! We've been there several times and love it every time.
It's always a great feeling to capture shots of the bride, groom, and their wedding party having a good time. The bridal party had so much fun playing with our handy cams that the captured behind the scene stuff.
Caitlin and Zach were down to do whatever we asked. We're like, pick up your bride and spin her, she was like, "SPIN ME." Such a great couple! And when we brought up the idea of using a smoke bomb, they immediately asked, what colors do we have? The smoke bombs made great visuals for videos and photos.
The wedding reception was held at Distillery 244 venue in the Old Town of Wichita, Kansas. We love the openness of the venue and the exposed brick. Everyone danced until late into the night, enjoying great food, drinks, and each other's company. Toward the end of the night, we took the wedding party over to a nearby party bus to continue celebrating.
The night ends with a live band and lots of bodies on the dance floor. After some great speeches by the best man and maid of honor, the dance floor opened, with a live band. And, man, can this group dance? There was barely any room on the dance floor for us to film. And Distillery 244 is HUGE! One of the largest venues in the Wichita downtown area, if not the biggest.
Even the bride's brother decided to join the live band a play a bit. Honestly, this was one of the best experiences we
had, and we would be honored if they renewed their vows, and asked us to join them again!
We can't wait until next time to capture more wedding memories filled with laughter, love, and fun!
