Wedding Film :: Ashley + Nicholas :: “Enduring Love and Friendship” :: Chateau Elan :: Braselton, GA

 We’ve known Ashley for years and she always told us that when the day came for her to get married, she was going to call us. Needless to say that when that call finally came, we didn’t hesitate to say “Yes!” We knew from the moment the planning began that this was going to be a truly special wedding and Ashley and Nicholas didn’t disappoint.
 
From the perfect weather to the breathtaking backdrop at Chateau Elan, their wedding day was the perfect showcase for their story to unfold and we are so happy we were able to be a part of such an amazing event. Ashley and Nicolas made their ceremony even more special by reading their own personal vows during their ceremony.  It was truly an unforgettable experience for everyone that was there to celebrate their special day.

Wedding Film :: Cayley + Lewis :: “The Real Deal” :: Strawberry Hill :: Chesnee, SC

We had such a fun time hanging out with Cayley and Lewis on their wedding day. They are just such fun people and their joyful spirit shined throughout the day and was reflected by their wedding ceremony and reception.

Their ceremony took place at Arrowwood Baptist Church in Chesnee. Surrounded by their friends and family, it was a perfect tribute to their relationship.  Cayley and Lewis did something different for their reception.  Since Cayley used to work at Strawberry Hill during the Summer, she got special permission to have her reception there. It was the perfect Summer celebration, complete with cake and homemade ice cream. Not only did the reception give their guests the perfect place to relax and have fun while celebrating Cayley and Lewis’ wedding Day, but it also provided an epic sunset backdrop for some post-ceremony pictures. You don’t want to miss this one.

Wedding Film :: Jodi + Wes :: “The Piece to Each Other’s Puzzle” :: Huguenot Loft :: Greenville, SC

Jodi and Wes have such an amazing story.  When they contacted us to film their wedding, they asked us to be there during their rehearsal dinner to capture the speeches.  They knew that their friends and family would be delivering some amazing toasts and wanted us to be there to capture everything.  Needless to say, they didn’t disappoint.

After hearing the speeches at their rehearsal dinner, we could tell that both of them had played huge roles in so many lives and it was so awesome to see so many of those people come together to celebrate their marriage. I think Jodi’s dad said it best when he was marrying Wes and Jodi when he said “It was a family affair,” because it truly felt that way. Whether it was their actual family or friends that they have known so long they felt like family, so many of them joined together in Greenville to pay tribute to their love and it was an amazing thing to be invited to capture.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Mary Katherine + Zach :: “All He Did Was Smile” :: Green Valley Country Club :: Greenville, SC

We had so much fun at Mary Katherine and Zach’s wedding. From the moment we arrived, they made us feel like one of the family and the fun didn’t stop all day. We knew from the beginning, we wanted to carry the fun atmosphere of their day over into their wedding highlights film.  One of Zach’s groomsmen did his fair share of helping us create this fun film.  All day, he kept asking to do interviews for the camera, so how could we resist using them in the wedding film.
 
Their beautiful wedding ceremony at Green Valley Country Club in Greenville, SC was highlighted by the perfect backdrop as the sun was setting over the golf course.  It made for an incredible setting for their reception and luckily the rain held off so that we could capture some footage of the two of them on the golf course after the ceremony.

Wedding Film :: Megan + Jeff :: “It Was Always You” :: Boone Hall Plantation :: Charleston SC

Megan and Jeff have an amazing love story that started in 7th grade. When you have a story like that, then you definitely need to have an amazing person tell it for you on your wedding day…… and that’s exactly what Megan and Jeff did. They had none other than Lori Beth Denberg from Nickelodeon’s “All That” show come in to town and be the officiant at their wedding. It was just one part of their amazing wedding day at Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, SC that we were honored to be asked to capture.
 
Since Megan and Jeff had such a special story, they decided to write their own vows so they could share their story with everyone that came to share their special day with them.  After the ceremony, they had an amazing reception on the Boone Hall property that was highlighted by the sunset backdrop over the water.  You definitely don’t want to miss this amazing love story as it unfolds.

Wedding Film :: Josh + Caroline :: “A Package From Heaven” :: Charlotte, NC

I don’t even know where to begin with this epic wedding. Last year, we shot Caroline’s sister’s wedding in Georgia and during that time, we have the chance to really get to know the Harrison family.  Needless to say, when we were asked back to film Caroline’s wedding, we were extremely excited. We started off their weekend by filming some amazing rehearsal dinner speeches and then spent all day with their friends and family.   We were able to capture some amazing things during their day, all of which was packed in to their wedding film below. To cap off the night, we also edited down a Same Day Edit film that was shown on the front lawn just before Caroline and Josh made their exit.

It was truly an event to remember, designed by the ridiculously talented group over at Walton Events in Charlotte.  This was the second time we had the opportunity to work with them and they killed it.  We are so honored that we were asked to be a part of capturing Josh and Caroline’s special day with such a talented group of people.

A huge thanks goes out to our friend Lee Morton from Clickspark Films in Baltimore for helping us pull off the Same Day Edit and some epic stuff in this film.

Same Day Edit :: Josh + Caroline :: “You Opened My Eyes” :: Charlotte, NC

Caroline and Josh were married in Charlotte NC.  They wanted to make their wedding ceremony a very personal experience, so they decided to have it at their family home.  The day couldn’t have been more special, surrounded by their friends and family.  We were so fortunate to be a part of their rehearsal dinner the night before the ceremony.  It allowed us a chance to capture all of the amazing speeches given by their friends and family and use those speeches in their same day edit.

We were so excited to be a part of their day and also provide them with a Same Day Edit that was shown on the front lawn just before their exit at the reception. Everything shown in the video was filmed during their wedding weekend and edited the day of their wedding to be shown at their reception. Just after the film finished playing on the front lawn, fireworks erupted in the sky as Caroline and Josh made their way to their car. What an amazing way to finish off their amazing weekend.

A huge thanks goes out to our friend Lee Morton from Clickspark Films in Baltimore for helping us pull off the Same Day Edit.

Commercial :: Upward Stars Promo Film 2015 :: “Reflections” Starring Derrick Moore :: Spartanburg, SC

After the success of the last promo video we created with Upward Sports, they contacted us again to work on a brand new video for the 2015 season.  This year, we decided to take a different approach.  They contacted Derrick Moore, former NFL player and current Chaplain for Georgia Tech, and asked him if he would like to be involved and he immediately said “Yes!”

Our goal for this video was to show that there is more to life than sports.  Upward prides itself on creating the “total” athlete.  While they focus heavily on game day performances, they also focus on creating well-rounded athletes who succeed in life outside of sports just as much as they succeed on the court.  For this video, we wanted to show how all of the work and all of the practice these players put in off the court is just as important as the work they do on the court.  In the video, we featured Derrick Moore as a former athlete reflecting on his life in sports, realizing that after all of the trophies and all of the accolades, there really is more to life than just sports.

In the end, we decided to show the athletes featured in the film as they have aged and have become successful people off the court in various ways.

Wedding Film :: Garan + Eddie :: “To Love Only You” :: The Millstone at Adams Pond :: Columbia, SC

Garan and Eddie had a beautiful ceremony at The Millstone at Adams Pond in Columbia SC.  When we met Garan and Eddie, we knew we were going to have a fun day.  They were very laid back and easy going the entire day, which made our job so much more fun.  Their ceremony had the perfect backdrop of Adams Pond.  You could hear the waterfall in the background and watch as the sun set over the pond.  It also gave us the perfect opportunity to get some aerial footage with our drone to use during their wedding film.
 
As you can see in the film below, their ceremony was only matched by the incredible party they shared with their friends and family at the reception.  They celebrated well into the night with their friends and family. Simply an amazing wedding that we were so excited to be a part of.

Wedding Film :: Jena + Chad :: “Softball Players Don’t Cry” :: Arrowhead Golf Club :: Denver, CO

We met Jena in June of 2012 when we were filming a wedding in North Carolina for Christie and Floris. She was doing makeup for Christie that day and we started talking to her. By the end of the day, we were great friends and she promised that when she got married, she was flying us out to Colorado to film her big day as well. Needless to say, nearly 2 years later, she kept her promise and we found ourselves in Denver, Colarado for our first wedding of 2015…..And what a wedding it was!

We love everything about this film, but the first 2 minutes of the film features what is probably one of my favorite moments we have ever captured at a ceremony. They turned a part of the ceremony most people ignore into an incredibly special moment for everyone. The whole day was an emotional roller coaster… People laughed… People cried… People laughed some more… Between Jena and Chad’s friends and family and the fact they were married by a person who has known Jena her entire life, it really made for a memorable weekend that we won’t soon forget.
