Wedding Film :: Kiersten + Jacob :: “You Brought the Sun” :: The Lace House :: Columbia, SC

Kiersten and Jacob’s wedding was so much fun. We joined them at The Lace House in Columbia, SC for their amazing ceremony. We knew when we got there that we were going to have a fun-filled day with Jacob and Kiersten and needless to say, they didn’t disappoint. Kiersten was laid back the entire day and Jacob kept the laughs coming.  Whether we were taking footage of them or just casually hanging out with them, they had such a fun attitude the entire day and were a breeze to work with.  As we were putting this film together, we knew we definitely wanted to make sure we captured the fun feeling of their wedding in their film.  Overall, we couldn’t have been more pleased with how everything turned out.

We had a great time working with everyone and as always, our friend Melanie Murphy and her team over at By Invitation Only killed it and the Lace House looked amazing!  Always a pleasure working with those talented people.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Jake + Brittany :: “Now it All Makes Sense” :: Chattooga Belle Farm :: Long Creek, SC

Brittany and Jake had an insanely amazing location for their wedding ceremony. The backdrop provided by Chattooga Belle Farm was second to none. We had such a fantastic time spending the day with them and enjoyed getting to know their friends and family. 

Brittany and Jake had a really fascinating story about how they met each other.  They decided early on that they wanted to write their own vows to tell their story and make their ceremony more personal. Being there to hear their story and share it with everyone was such an amazing experience and I am so glad we were there to capture that moment on film.  It made for a great element in their wedding highlights film.

You definitely don’t want to miss this one as we were able to really build the video around their story since they incorporated so much about their relationship in their vows. Thanks again, Brittany and Jake for inviting us to be a part of your story!

Wedding Highlights Film :: Jessica + Jeff :: “Deeper Trails Yet to Walk” :: Country Club of the South :: Atlanta, GA

Jessica and Jeff had a beautiful wedding ceremony at Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church followed by an equally amazing reception at Country Club of the South. It’s no secret that music is a huge part of Jeff’s life, so it was a no brainer for him to incorporate it in to the ceremony. As a surprise to Jessica, he and the wedding party joined together to sing and play “Only You” by the Platters during the ceremony. It was a total surprise to Jessica and created a great memory that they are their guests will always remember. Needless to say, we had such a fun day all around with this great couple as you can see in the video below.

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.
