Wedding Teaser Film :: Maria + Courtland :: Wilmington NC

Something pretty amazing happened for Maria and Courtland.  This pandemic did everything it could to put a damper on their wedding..  Maria and Courtland were scheduled to get married in Asheville NC, surrounded by all of their friends and family.  However, A few weeks before their wedding, they got the news that North Carolina had decided to limit gatherings again to 25 people or less.  So, instead of postponing their wedding, the decided to move it back to their home town of Wilmington, reduce their guest list down to 25 people (mostly family,) and rent a house in town big enough for them to have a private celebration.  Her father would be the officiant of their ceremony and their reception would be a family dinner.  Then, a week before their wedding, their photographer had a close friend contract covid-19 and in an abundance of caution, she removed herself from the wedding.  Luckily, they were able to have another photographer step in and do an incredible job.  Then, as a final blow to the day, Maria and Courtland woke up to rain coming down in Wilmington that morning.  And when I say rain… I mean RAIN.  Torrential downpour, no end in sight, red all over the radar all day type of rain. 

Most people would be pretty bummed about the situation and some would have just rescheduled their entire wedding.  Instead, they decided to roll with it and what came out of their day was an absolute thing of beauty.  Throughout the day, their close friends and family members that were there did everything they could to make the day extra special.  They brought rose petals to surprise them as they exited the church.  They set up a special space on the rooftop of their rental house for them to share their family dinner “reception” time.  All day, it was little things that became the big things.    It stripped the wedding day down and made it all about the most important things in their life.  Just before their ceremony, the rain subsided and we started getting a glimpse of sunlight that gave everyone a little hope for our planned photo time at Airlie Gardens.   It ended up happening and as it did, you could see the stress of the day leave them.  But more importantly, it gave us a chance to focus our time on capturing un-rushed moments with them in the gardens and the marina.  It also gave us a chance to capture the little moments with their family that sometimes get lost in the rush of a wedding.  Things that we may not normally use in a wedding film or things that would get overlooked in the day….. but today, they seemed more important.  

When we created this teaser and while we are working on their full film, we wanted to give Maria and Courtland a video that would remind them that even through all of the chaos leading up to their day, something beautiful emerged.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Calli + Taylor :: “Passing the Edisto Test” :: Edisto Island, SC

As a father to four boys, I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand the father/daughter dynamic.  I’ve seen it hundreds of times while filming weddings, and t’s one of those beautiful things that I never get tired of seeing.  Some dads are nervous and quiet, some cry, some don’t show any emotion at all… But it’s something that we always try to capture since it’s such an important part of the day.  Calli’s dad did it right.  During his speech, he held it together most of the time… Until it came time to talk to Calli.  The minute we heard his speech at the reception, we knew we wanted to build their wedding film around his words.  Not only did he give an amazing tribute to his daughter, but he welcomed Taylor into the family with open arms and made sure Taylor knew how much he appreciated the love he has shown for his daughter since the time they met.

It was the perfect way to cap off an already amazing wedding day.  From the prep and beautiful scenery at Cassina Point Plantation to the wedding ceremony at Edisto Island Presbyterian Church, it was an absolutely perfect day for Calli and Taylor…. although a little hot for October!  Edisto Island has a huge history with Calli’s family, which you’ll soon see in the video, so it means even more that they were able to share the experience with all of their friends and family on their wedding day in one of their favorite places that holds such an important place in their family history.

Calli and Taylor, thank you so much for letting us be a part of telling your story.  We had so much fun at your wedding and we hope you enjoy re-living this beautiful day for many years to come.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Mika + Emily :: “The Best Ride Ever” :: Magnolia Plantation :: Charleston, SC

 

Man, we loved this wedding.  It literally had it all.  From the beautiful church location to the epic reception at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, it couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. As if that wasn’t enough, Mika and Emily were surrounded by their friends and family at the reception, and there, they were treated to some very emotional speeches given by those that know and love them the most. 

As we were sitting there filming all of the speeches, we looked around the room multiple times and noticed there were very few dry eyes in the room.  It’s such a great testament to their relationship and the love they have for each other when you hear so many people getting up and telling story after story about them and their relationship. It was really amazing and I’m so glad we were there to capture them so we could feature some of those speeches in their highlights film.

Emily and Mika were such a special couple and we had so much fun hanging out with them and their friends and family all day. From the time we arrived to film their prep until the time we left, we didn’t stop smiling… and as you can see in the highlights film, we weren’t the only ones!

Emily and Mika, thank you again for inviting us to capture your day.  We had such a great time and hope you enjoy reliving the day through your highlights film.

Wedding Highlights Film :: MaryAnn + Christian :: “Everything You Have Ever Dreamed Of” :: Bushnell, FL

 

We had so much fun at this wedding.  In fact, everyone had a great time here and I think it shows.  MaryAnn and Christian invited us down to Florida to film their wedding and we couldn’t have been more excited about making the trip.  Their venue was in a field beside a beautiful shiplap barn sitting on 10 acres in Bushnell, FL called The Orange Blossom Barn.  Surrounded by open fields and old trees, it was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony. 

Their wedding planner, Chelsea, was able to bring together a great vision for their wedding.  MaryAnn and Christian created a relaxed environment all day for their friends and family, including corn hole, a fire pit, and giant games of Jenga.  It fit perfectly with the feel of their day and was so much fun for everyone.  

Their ceremony was absolutely beautiful.  The barn door reveal for MaryAnn’s entrance was perfect and you could see the emotion on Christian’s face when he watched her coming down the aisle.  Even though they did a first look, you could still feel the emotion in that moment and it only continued throughout the ceremony.

As great as all of that was, the highlight of the day for me was when we joined their photographer, Katie, and headed across the farm to an open field at sunset.  Being in Florida, you always picture beautiful sunsets, but nothing could have prepared us for the one that waited for us.  We were able to capture some insanely beautiful footage of them together in that field before the sun set and they joined their friends and family back at the reception. 

MaryAnn and Christian, Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding.  It is not a trip we will soon forget and I am so happy we were able to be a part of your day.
