Amanda & Tom-Marriage is Like a Pair of Scissors


Amanda and Tom, I can definitely say, had us smiling all day long.  We showed up at The Seelbach Hilton that morning in time to capture the preparations for the big day.  The rooms were filled with family, friends and lots of laughter.

They decided to see each other before the wedding, so we were able to set up a romantic first look in the foyer of The Grand Ballroom. Deciding to do a first look is a very personal decision, but one I usually prefer. I feel that the couple has the opportunity to have a few moments of quiet intimacy before the rush of all the days events begin. In their film, you can see the look of amazement on Tom’s face as he is taking in the beauty of his bride.

A first look At The Seelbach

We have filmed many weddings in the Grand Ballroom before but Nanz and Kraft really outdid themselves this time. The draping across the ceiling was stunning; it was simple yet it made a big visual impact.

The reception was equally elegant but also a lot of fun. Tom’s best friend and Amanda’s sister both gave heartfelt toasts that had everyone in the room cheering. In honor of Tom’s family, later in the evening Amanda changed into a traditional Vietnamese wedding dress of red and gold.  The celebration of these two people went on well into the wee hours of the night.  It’s a night I know Tom and Amanda will remember for the rest of their lives!
