Wedding Highlight Films

Wedding Highlights Film :: Bridgette + Paul :: “Humor in the Bad, Appreciation in the Good” :: Hartsville, SC

We absolutely loved these two.  Throughout the day, they kept making us laugh and smile and you can tell just by watching their highlights film just how much they enjoyed their day together.

We started with Bridgette and Paul the night before their wedding at their rehearsal dinner.  They invited us down to capture the speeches at their dinner and we are so glad they did.  It gave everyone a chance to talk about their love for Bridgette and Paul and played perfectly as the ground layer for their highlights film.  

During their wedding day, we had the chance to get to know Paul and Bridgette and all of their friends and family and we loved the time we got to spend with them.  Despite the crazy weather all day, Bridgette and Paul didn’t let it get them down.  All day, they both had a smile plastered across their face and just let the emotion of the day sink in.  

It was such a great day and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.  Bridgette and Paul, we hope you enjoy reliving your day as much as we did and thank you again for inviting us to be a part of your day.

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 :: Megan + Colton :: “My Hand, My Heart, and My Love” :: Charleston, SC

 

This wedding might have been a LITTLE emotional 🙂 

The thing we love most about weddings is that our films are literally a blank canvas when we start filming and we are able to let the couples and their friends and family guide us in the direction the film needs to go.  Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry.. It all just depends on the day.  For Megan and Colton… We definitely had a clear vision on where we needed to go with this film. 

From Megan and Colton’s vows to each other to the speeches given by their friends and family, everyone, and I mean everyone was in tears at some point throughout the day.  Megan and Colton have a truly amazing story and have been through so much and having them tell their story during their ceremony was absolutely beautiful.  

It didn’t stop there though.  Their friends and family absolutely nailed their toasts and told such poignant stories about Colton and Megan and their relationship.  It really made for a moving and emotional day for everyone from start to finish.  After their toasts and dinner, they spent the rest of the evening celebrating with their friends and family at Boone Hall Plantation before making their exit into the night.

Megan and Colton, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day.  You had such and amazing story, filled with so much emotion and we appreciate you inviting us to capture the memories.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Spencer + Kristen :: ” Most Certain Thing I’ve Ever Known” :: Asheville, NC

 

Kristen and Spencer were married at the Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, NC.  It was a fantastic wedding celebration with Spencer and Kristen surrounded by their friends and family.

Before their ceremony, Kristen and Spencer decided to do a first look, which meant we were able to capture some great photos of the two of them together before the ceremony.  We decided to drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway to get some photos and video of the two of them and that led to a very memorable encounter with a baby bear when he decide to wonder out of the woods, just feet away from where we were filming Kristen and Spencer.  Definitely not something you see every day!  After that, we headed back to Biltmore Forest Country Club for their ceremony.

One of our favorite parts of Kristen and Spencer’s wedding was their vows.  They wrote their own vows to share with one another and each of them had their own unique approach to telling their story.  It was a nice blend of laughter and serious, sentimental moments that made for some really awesome dialog for us to use in their film.  Combine that with the toasts their friends and family gave at the reception and you have some really memorable speeches about their life and love for each other. It all just came together perfectly to make for one amazing day for the two of them.

Kristen and Spencer, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day.  We had so much fun being with you and your friends and family and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of sharing your story.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Danielle + Jacob :: “Always Remember to Love and Laugh” :: Greenville, SC

 

You really couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day for this couple.  The weather was perfect, the setting was beautiful, the guests were awesome… From start to finish, it was the most ideal day any bride could have ever hoped for.

Danielle and Jacob were married in the Larkin’s courtyard in downtown Greenville and it was quite the ceremony.  Danielle Baker always does a terrific job as officiant in making every ceremony personal and feel special and this time was no different.  As she read their letters to each other that they had written beforehand, there was a complete mixture of laughter and tears in the crowd.  It was a perfect testimony to the type of relationship Danielle and Jacob have.  You could see it even more during their reception when their friends and family got up to deliver their speeches. As everyone told their stories about Danielle and Jacob and how they were impacted by their relationship, it gave you a unique glimpse into the type of people they are and the love they have for each other.

They finished the day off with Steel Toe Stiletto bringing the house down at the reception.  It was a tremendous celebration with all of their friends and family and a great way to end their wedding day.

We are so thankful that we got to be a part of sharing this amazing story with everyone.  Such a great group of people and we hope you enjoy reliving the day as much as we have!

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 :: Jeff + Lala :: “Deeper & Surer” :: Biltmore Estate :: Asheville, NC

 

Jeff and Lala’s wedding on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate was nothing short of breathtaking.  The entire day we were laughing and having fun with Jeff, Lala, their friends and their family. 

We always love when a couple decides to do a first look on the day of their wedding, but this one definitely took the cake.  Their photographer, Jill, found the perfect location near the Inn on Biltmore Estate that had the most amazing view of the mountains surrounding the area.  Despite the overcast day, it was a beautiful moment watching Jeff and Lala as they had a private moment seeing each other for the first time.

After that, we headed down to the Biltmore Estate for some photos with their wedding party and we took full advantage of the views and the estate grounds. Of course, their ceremony and reception at the Lioncrest was the perfect culmination of their day.  Surrounded by their friends and family, Lala and Jeff said their vows before spending the rest of the evening celebrating their new life together, surrounded by the people that love them most.

Lala and Jeff, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your day.  We are so happy with how your highlights film turned out and hope you enjoy reliving the day for years to come.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Kate + Lukas :: “Stories of the Past, Dreams for the Future” :: Salem, SC

 

I think it goes without saying that Kate was one of the happiest brides we have ever worked with.  It was evident on the day of the wedding, but as soon as we got back and started editing their footage, it became very clear.  We were hard pressed to find any footage throughout the day that she wasn’t smiling.  And with a wedding as amazing as hers, it is clear to see why.

Kate and Lukas had a very intimate backyard wedding at the Hettinger home in Salem, SC. With the lake as their backdrop, Kate and Lukas said their vows in front of their friends and family. You really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting.  After that, their friends and family followed them to the Keowee Key Country Club for the wedding reception. Allie and her team at I Do did an amazing job making sure the reception area was absolutely perfect.  It was truly a stunning celebration as Lukas and Kate spent the rest of the evening celebrating their new marriage with their friends and family.

Be sure to check out their video.  I bet you can’t get through it without smiling 🙂

Wedding Highlights Film :: Ben + Abby :: “God’s Best For You” :: Greenville, SC

 

Abby and Ben had a beautiful wedding in downtown Greenville at the Huguenot Lofts. Everything about their day was absolutely perfect, from the beautiful weather, the setup and decor of their venue, and the pure emotion of their wedding ceremony.

The most memorable thing about Abby and Ben’s day was Ben’s reaction to seeing Abby for the first time as she walked down the aisle.  You could feel the raw emotion that took over Ben as Abby and her father walked down the aisle towards him and I am so happy we were there to capture that moment.  Their entire ceremony was an emotional celebration of their relationship and the work that God has done to bring them together.  They capped the entire ceremony off by having their family come down front and pray for them as they start their new life together and I couldn’t think of any better way to start off your marriage.

After the cermeony, they finished the evening with some amazing photos on the river walk and an amazing party at their reception.  It was literally one of those parties that just didn’t stop and it was a great end to such a perfect day.

We are so happy to share their film and hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.

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.
