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 Film :: Sam + Dana :: “Live Love and Live Long :: Charleston, SC :: The Citadel

We were so excited when Sam and Dana asked us to be a part of their wedding celebration at the Citadel in Charleston.  We always have an amazing time when we visit Charleston and film at the Citadel and we knew their wedding wouldn’t disappoint. 

When we arrived in town, we joined Dana and her bridesmaids at Lordis Salon and Spa in downtown Charleston to capture some footage of them getting ready. We had a great time laughing and enjoying the day with them before heading over to the beach house where Sam was getting ready.  After scoping out the beach house, we found an amazing place for Sam to get ready.  The beach house had a third story ocean view porch that made the perfect backdrop for him to get dressed.  Easily some of our favorite footage from the day.  

When the time came for the ceremony, it was absolutely gorgeous inside the Citadel chapel.  Sam and Dana said their vows in front of their friends and family before making their exit and heading over to the Holliday Alumni Center on the Citadel campus.  It was an amazing night as Sam and Dana celebrated their new marriage with all of their friends and family.

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 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

Wedding Highlights Film :: Coley + Kinsey :: “Practice Makes Possible” :: Lowndes Grove Plantation :: Charleston SC

Back in June, we had the great opportunity to film our first wedding at the Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, SC. When Kinsey contacted us to film her wedding, we were extremely excited to be a part of their day. Not only did they seem like a great couple to be around, but the Lowndes Grove Plantation is a beautiful venue and we couldn’t wait to see how we could capture the day.

Kinsey and Coley were married on the front lawn of the plantation, which overlooks the water, but along with that, we got a nice unexpected bonus. Not only did their ceremony have the beautiful backdrop of the water, but they picked the perfect time of day for their ceremony, because just as their ceremony started, the sun began setting into the water and it was breathtaking.

With all of the personal touches Kinsey and Coley put into their wedding, we really wanted to capture the essence of their wedding day and show as much as we could. The only problem was that there was seriously so much that it couldn’t be captured with a 4 minute long video, (Don’t worry, there will be much more in the full wedding film) especially when you had a great story from the officiant and the stunning sunset as a backdrop for the footage we shot of just Kinsey and Coley.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Dave + Cassie :: “The First Day” :: Chicago IL

Kent and I had the pleasure of heading up to Chicago for New Years to shoot Dave and Cassie’s wedding. Needless to say, it was an amazing event that we were so honored to be a part of.

We arrived in Chicago on New Years Eve to capture a party Dave and Cassie were having at their house with friends and family that night. We always knew we wanted to start the video off with this, because we really felt this was the start of their wedding weekend.

The next morning, we joined Cassie and Dave and their families down at the Osteria Via Stato where they were getting everything prepped for the wedding that night. We loved the way the entire family came together to transform the room into the perfect ceremony location. It ended up being absolutely beautiful and we loved the candid moments we were able to capture by filming this part of their day. After that, we followed Cassie to a local nail salon and spa where she and her close friends and family spent the morning getting manicures and pedicures. After that, we returned to the Dana Hotel to being capturing Dave and Cassie’s final prep for the wedding. While we were there, we made the decision to focus the video heavily on Dave and Cassie’s vows. Both of them poured so much emotion into their vows that we knew we had to make them the focus of the video. We also had a blast hanging out with Dave and Cassie in their rooms with their friends and family during the afternoon. Both of them were so excited about the evening and they were so relaxed that we were able to capture some great moments with them.

Dave and Cassie had one of the most intimate ceremonies we have ever been a part of. They conducted the full ceremony with their friends and family surrounding them. It really made the entire evening feel more intimate, almost like they included everyone in their ceremony. We felt it really helped add a lot of emotion to the evening and really made their ceremony special.

Following the ceremony, we joined their photographer for a trip down the streets of Chicago to capture the first moments of Cassie and Dave being husband and wife. It was amazing… but what made it even more amazing was that Cassie wore a sleeveless dress at night time in Chicago in 17 degree weather. I have no idea how she pulled that off, but I am glad she did. We concluded the shoot at the Dana Hotel where we visited the rooftop of the hotel with Dave and Cassie to grab some awesome footage of them overlooking the city. It was an awesome ending to their beautiful wedding day.
