Wedding Teaser Film :: Maria + Courtland :: Wilmington NC

Something pretty amazing happened for Maria and Courtland.  This pandemic did everything it could to put a damper on their wedding..  Maria and Courtland were scheduled to get married in Asheville NC, surrounded by all of their friends and family.  However, A few weeks before their wedding, they got the news that North Carolina had decided to limit gatherings again to 25 people or less.  So, instead of postponing their wedding, the decided to move it back to their home town of Wilmington, reduce their guest list down to 25 people (mostly family,) and rent a house in town big enough for them to have a private celebration.  Her father would be the officiant of their ceremony and their reception would be a family dinner.  Then, a week before their wedding, their photographer had a close friend contract covid-19 and in an abundance of caution, she removed herself from the wedding.  Luckily, they were able to have another photographer step in and do an incredible job.  Then, as a final blow to the day, Maria and Courtland woke up to rain coming down in Wilmington that morning.  And when I say rain… I mean RAIN.  Torrential downpour, no end in sight, red all over the radar all day type of rain. 

Most people would be pretty bummed about the situation and some would have just rescheduled their entire wedding.  Instead, they decided to roll with it and what came out of their day was an absolute thing of beauty.  Throughout the day, their close friends and family members that were there did everything they could to make the day extra special.  They brought rose petals to surprise them as they exited the church.  They set up a special space on the rooftop of their rental house for them to share their family dinner “reception” time.  All day, it was little things that became the big things.    It stripped the wedding day down and made it all about the most important things in their life.  Just before their ceremony, the rain subsided and we started getting a glimpse of sunlight that gave everyone a little hope for our planned photo time at Airlie Gardens.   It ended up happening and as it did, you could see the stress of the day leave them.  But more importantly, it gave us a chance to focus our time on capturing un-rushed moments with them in the gardens and the marina.  It also gave us a chance to capture the little moments with their family that sometimes get lost in the rush of a wedding.  Things that we may not normally use in a wedding film or things that would get overlooked in the day….. but today, they seemed more important.  

When we created this teaser and while we are working on their full film, we wanted to give Maria and Courtland a video that would remind them that even through all of the chaos leading up to their day, something beautiful emerged.

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 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.

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 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 :: Jeff + Kathryn :: “You and Me Against the World” :: Asheville NC

Kathryn and Jeff had a beautiful ceremony at The Farm near Asheville, NC. Even though the entire day was a struggle with the weather, in the end, Kathryn and Jeff won and they were able to enjoy their beautiful wedding outdoors as planned. This video is one of our favorites, because it shows Kathryn and Jeff’s personality throughout the day. We had such a great time getting to know their family and wedding party throughout the day and needless to say, this was hands down one of our favorite golf outings to film; so much fun. By the end of the day, we had laughed and loved so much with these two and I am so glad that the joy of their wedding day came through in the video. These two love adventures and you can easily see this is a great start to a new adventure in their lives.
