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.

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.

Wedding Film :: Jaclyn + Tony :: “Where You Belonged All Along” :: Omni Grove Park Inn :: Asheville, NC

Sometimes the groom surprises us with their vows.  Most people assume that the groom is just there to do the wedding for the bride’s sake… and most of the time that’s true.  This wedding, however, was different.  Tony came in and blew everyone away with his epic vows.  Seriously… Just listen to them.  

Jaclyn and Tony’s beautiful ceremony at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC was the culmination of a story that is 20 years in the making.  The rain held off just long enough for the wedding ceremony to proceed and Tony and Jaclyn made sure to make the most of it all.  Their ceremony overlooking the North Carolina scenery at Grove Park Inn was second to none and throughout the day, their guests couldn’t stop taking in the sights.  Needless to say, if you are a groom looking or inspiration on how to write your own vows, take a cue from Tony… He nailed it, telling their emotional story in an amazing way!

Wedding Highlights Film :: Tina + Wynn :: “Love, Laughter & Happy Ever After” :: Harvey B Gantt Center :: Mint Museum :: Charlotte, NC

I want to go ahead and say that from the beginning I loved everything about this wedding; the location, the couple, the speeches, everything. Even before i started the editing process, I loved everything, but once I got in to the editing process, I realized I loved it even more. Rarely do we find weddings that are ALL about the couple, but this one was and that is why it was so amazing.

Every detail of the ceremony and reception venue reflected the style of the couple.  Carolina Event Design did a ridiculously amazing job at putting together a stunning venue that reflected the classic elegance of the couple. And while all of that was amazing, the one thing that I loved most was the speeches given at the reception for Tina and Wynn. Each speech given was a tribute to the couple. So many people underestimate the value of having speeches at the reception and for us, these speeches made the evening so memorable. What an amazing day and amazing tribute to this couple.

Wedding Film :: Tyler + Jamie :: “Really Soon” :: Chapman Cultural Center :: Spartanburg SC

Everything about Tyler and Jamie’s wedding was awesome for us. The ceremony was awesome… The reception was awesome… The time we got to spend filming them in love was awesome… But the thing we loved most about their wedding day was the speeches at the reception. The speeches given by their best man and Maid of Honor really set the tone for our film. They paid a great tribute to their relationship while making it relevant to their wedding day. From a wedding day standpoint, these speeches helped make the day memorable for everyone there by giving them a glimpse into Tyler and Jamie’s relationship. From a wedding film standpoint, they were an amazing way for us to tell their story from the words of those that know them best.


Tyler and Jamie have a great story, one that we are so honored we got to tell. From the fun that we had hanging out with them during their prep to the intimate ceremony they had with their friends and family, we had an amazing time sharing the day with these two.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Elliot + Chara :: “For the Rest of Time” :: Biltmore Estate :: Asheville NC

Elliot and Chara’s wedding was simply amazing. They were married at the Lioncrest at Deerpark on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC. Even though there was an overcast for most of the day, we managed to hold off the rain and have their beautiful ceremony.

Chara and Elliot spent the morning in downtown Asheville with their friends and family while they were doing their prep. This is always a fun time for us to capture, because the bride and groom are so excited about their day and have so much fun with the people around them. We had a great time spending the day with them and laughed quite often with everyone.

Once the ceremony started, the emotion started pouring over every one. From the moment Chara walked down the aisle and Elliot caught a glimpse of her, you knew the ceremony was going to be full of emotion. The vows that the two of them read to each other were some of the most heartfelt emotional words we have heard. As we looked around, everyone in the crowd was completely in the moment with them and it was a truly awesome sight to see. Needless to say, it was a memorable event that we were so thankful to be a part of.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Brittany + Drake :: “Yours, and Only Yours” :: Isle of Palms, SC

Brittany and Drake had an amazing wedding at The Citadel Beach Club at Isle of Palms, SC. The weather was perfect all day and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting. They decided to rent a beach house close to the wedding venue where they did all of their prep with their friends and family. It gave us a great time to capture Brittany and Drake enjoying the day with their friends and also gave us a chance to spend time getting to know their friends and family and we had a great time hanging out with all of them.

Their ceremony was beautiful and it definitely gave us a great time to bring the drone out to capture some aerial footage of their wedding location. All of this was made even more special when Brittany and Drake broke out their own wedding vows and began speaking them to each other. It was a seriously moving experience and there wasn’t a dry eye to be seen. It just goes to show that when you throw 2 people madly in love with each other into a beautiful setting and they have the freedom to exchange vows in their own words, magic can really happen.

Brittany and Drake, thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful wedding. Be sure to watch their video below and leave a comment for them if you enjoyed the video
