Wedding Highlights Film :: Daniel + Presley :: “And Now There’s You” :: Spartanburg, SC

It was a day over 7 years in the making… and it was everything they dreamed it would be.

One of our favorite parts of this wedding was the incredible amount of emotion it had throughout the day.  A lot of times when planning weddings, brides may decide not to do a first look because they want that “reaction” from the groom when the bride walks down the aisle and he sees her for the first time, which is a totally valid point.  Wanna know what’s incredible about this wedding?  Daniel and Presley did a first look…. and she STILL got that emotional reaction from Daniel. Not only that, but his reaction all day long was perfect.  From the first look, to the wedding ceremony, to the speeches, you could see his love for Presley all over his face.  All day, it was priceless.  You could just see their love for each other over and over again.

We were also given an incredible moment during the reception when Presley’s dad got up to give a speech to the couple.  He said something that really made us look at the day differently.  We’ve seen the bride and her father do a first look before, but this one took on a whole different meaning for us after his speech.  It never really set in that when we capture those moments, we are capturing a time when a dad is seeing his daughter for the last time as just his daughter.  It’s a goodbye of sorts… It’s saying “You were totally mine, but now you’re his….” It was beautiful and I’m so glad we were able to capture it and build a segment in this film around the premise. 

Presley and Daniel, you two were amazing and we are so glad we have a chance to capture your day and tell your story.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Chris + Anna :: “One Kind of Wedding” :: Moore, SC

 

Chris and Anna’s wedding was special for us.  We had known Chris and Anna for a long time and were so happy when they invited us to be a part of their day.  

I love the fact that Chris and Anna wrote their own vows for the day.  A lot of people overlook that detail when planning their wedding, but we have always felt it adds so much more emotion to the day… and Chris and Anna didn’t disappoint.  As they read their vows, you could feel their friends and family taking it all in with them.  It made the ceremony such an emotional experience and we knew we had to build their highlights video around their words.

Later in the evening, the epicness of their ceremony would be matched by their reception.  Since Chris and Anna had were huge fans of dueling piano shows, they hired some local piano players to entertain their guests during cocktail hour.  Then, things got really crazy as the DJ took over and the party began. As you can tell in the highlights film, it was an amazing event and definitely a day we won’t soon forget.

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 :: 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 Film :: Kent + Natalie :: “Laying the Foundation” :: Moore SC

2013 was a banner year for all of us here at Artifice Films. We got to tell some amazing stories, meet awesome people and visit some pretty incredible places. But, I think it is safe to say that one of us had a more eventful year than others. Kent has been here since the beginning and this past November, he decided that after years of filming weddings, it was finally time to have one of his own.

In Kent’s “other” life, he sells dental supplies and that is how he and Natalie met. She worked for a dentist and one day when Kent went to call on that dentist, Natalie began talking to Kent about a dental supply called a “245 carbine bur” that they were having issues with. Kent took care of the issue and they never thought much more about it. Then, 8 months later when Kent was making a routine trip to Home Depot, he happened to see Natalie and her son there. They talked and the rest is history. The cool thing about this is that for a wedding gift for Natalie during their first look, Kent gave her a #245 carbide bur” that he had placed on a necklace and gave it to her since that is where their story began.

Kent and Natalie decided to have their ceremony on land that Kent’s family owns. They knew it would be beautiful in November and they were right. Month and months of planning and preparation went into making the farm land suitable for a wedding venue. Every last detail was planned and Kent being the “do-it-yourselfer” was making last minute site preparations right up until the day of the wedding. The result was a stunning wedding held on the land where Kent and Natalie hope to build a house one day. Everything about the day was perfect. Even though the rain started to creep in, it held off pretty much the entire day and they were able to have the ceremony they had dreamed about.

A great thing about being in the wedding business is that you get the opportunity to “borrow” ideas from weddings you work and you also get to meet a lot of vendors. Kent and Natalie took a lot of ideas from weddings we have shot over the last 4 years and put them into his wedding. If you’re a former bride, there is a chance you may see an idea from your wedding here. Not only that, but when it came time to select a photographer, Kent was able to dig all the way back to a wedding we shot in 2011 and find the photographer that we worked with in Delaware on that wedding. It was nice having a reunion with our friend Hooman from Vesic Photography who always makes sure a wedding day is full of fun.

Wedding Film :: Ben + Marie :: “The Full Weight of the Word” :: Spartanburg, SC

Where do we even begin with Ben and Marie’s wedding?  Their wedding was insane from the start. There were so many details, so many amazing speeches and so much love being shared that day and we are so glad we were on hand to capture everything.

Ben is the lead vocalist in The Delta Saints and Marie is a Singer / Songwriter. Both of them live in Nashville, TN, but decided to travel back to Marie’s hometown in South Carolina to have their wedding at the Hines family home. It is a beautiful home overlooking the lake and Marie and Ben knew just how to take advantage of the setting to make everything perfect.

Marie spent weeks making sure the smallest details of her wedding were just right. In fact, she actually made a ton of the small details you see in her film herself. From the gold painted books she used on the tables at their reception to the flags for her photos. She even documented a lot of it on her Instagram, which you should follow if you’re not.

Despite all of the beauty surrounding their wedding and the amazing speeches given by their family and friends, the one thing that completely blew us away from their wedding was their vows. True, they are songwriters and creatives at heart, but nothing could prepare us for the words they said to each other. Literally, it was one of those ‘epic’ moments and I am glad we were there to capture it so they can relive it for years to come.
