Wedding Teaser Film :: Maggie + Mason :: Marion SC :: Wildberry Farm

Maggie and Mason were married this past Saturday at Wildberry Farm in Marion, SC. It was nothing short of epic. We absolutely loved working with this couple and their family and couldnt be happier with how everything turned out. From the beautiful sunset footage to the epic party at the reception, it couldn’t have been more perfect. This is a little teaser film we put together for them to showcase their amazing day.

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 :: 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.

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 :: Ann + Vanna :: “It’s Not Hard to Fall in Love” :: Rock Hill, SC

 

We had a great time with this couple from start to finish.  When we arrived in Rock Hill, we started the day over at Ann’s house where we met her friends and family to begin their prep.  We had so much fun with Ann while everyone was getting ready that we knew we would be in for a fun day.

Their ceremony at St. Anne Catholic Church in Rock Hill was perfect.  They were surrounded by their friends and family as they said their vows to each other and you couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day or setting.

Then came one of the biggest parties we’ve been to this year.  Ann and Vanna had a reception to remember.  Their dances were amazing, the speeches were a great testament to Ann and Vanna’s relationship, the food was incredible, and the party was definitely memorable.  

We had a great time working with Heidi Crowder Wedding Design and Love Shutter Photography on such a perfect wedding.  Ann and Vanna, thank you again for inviting us to Rock Hill to capture your day.  We are so honored to have been able to tell your story.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Daniel + Claire :: “For a Good Reason” :: Southern Bleachery at Taylors Mill :: Taylors, SC

 

We were so excited to be a part of Daniel and Claire’s big day.  Not only were they an extremely fun couple to be around all day, but they were also one of the first weddings to take place over at Southern Bleachery at Taylors Mill.  

When we arrived, we were able to spend some time with Claire and her friends while they were getting ready and also grab some footage around the Taylors Mill.  The venue was amazing and Claire and Daniel couldn’t have asked for a better setting. 

During the ceremony, we knew the minute we saw Daniel’s reaction to seeing Claire walking down the aisle that we were in for an emotional ride.  You could feel the emotion in the room as Claire and Daniel said their vows to each other and afterwards, we were able to get some private time with them up on the roof of the mill.  This gave us the perfect opportunity to capture some incredible sunset footage and also get to spend some time with Claire and Daniel away from everyone else while they just enjoyed being together.

This was a fun day indeed and we are so happy we were on hand for Claire and Daniel’s wedding day fun.  It was so great getting to see such a beautiful wedding take place at Southern Bleachery and the transformation that has taken place over at Taylors Mill.  Angie over at Culpepper Designs always does an amazing job, but this time, she really outdid herself. 

Thanks again Claire and Daniel for inviting us to tell your story.  It was an amazing day!

Wedding Highlights Film :: Drew + Danielle :: “The Best Catch” :: Kiawah Island, SC

Drew and Danielle love to live like to the fullest and make every day an adventure.  Never has that been more evident than during their wedding weekend.  

They decided to spend their wedding weekend with their closest friends and family members in a beautiful ceremony down at Mingo Point on Kiawah Island.  It was an amazing day that allowed us to capture footage of them getting ready with their friends and family as well as some incredible shots on the beach for the first look and sunset pictures following the ceremony at Mingo Point.  The ceremony took place overlooking the sunset and water at Mingo Point.   There couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for these two to seal their vows to each other.

Following the ceremony, they had a reception for all of their friends and family, complete with oyster roast and a DJ that kept the dancing going well into the night. We absolutely loved the speeches given by their best man and maid of honor at the reception. They were the perfect testament to Drew and Danielle’s relationship and the minute we heard them, we knew they would make a perfect backdrop for their wedding film. It was truly a great celebration of their relationship and we are so happy we had the opportunity to tell the story of their day.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Jenn + Clint :: “Marriage Changes People” :: Sea Island, GA

 

What an amazing wedding this was.  We started the day at the Cloister at Sea Island spending time with Jenn and Clint and their friends and family.  It was a really casual atmosphere while they just enjoyed spending time with everyone while they were getting ready for their big day.

After we left the Cloister, Jenn and Clint wanted to head down to Avenue of the Oaks on St. Simons Island for their first look.  It is a beautiful location that offered the perfect backdrop for them to have a private moment with each other before their ceremony and offered us the perfect location to capture some footage of them just spending some time together before their ceremony.

Their ceremony was nothing short of perfect.  You couldn’t have asked for a better day for a wedding and the gardens at the Cloister were stunning. As we followed Jenn from the nearby chapel to the gardens as she walked along the path with her father, we knew we were in for a memorable ceremony… and they didn’t disappoint.

Their ceremony was followed up with a reception that was led by the We Got the Beat Band who kept the party going all night long.  It was a fun time as everyone celebrated Clint and Jenn and we were so happy we got to capture the story of their day as it unfolded.

Same Day Edit :: Jessica + David :: “That’s For Life” :: A Hotel Domestique Elopement

David and Jessica decided to do something crazy… then they invited us along for the ride… and we are so glad they did.  They contacted us about a week ago because they had plans to do an elopement at Hotel Domestique in Traveler’s Rest, SC and they wanted a Same Day Edit to post online to break the news of their wedding to their friends and family….. Well….. Here it is… SURPRISE!!!

David was graduating from grad school on Friday and their family would be in town, together to celebrate.  Their plan was to tell everyone their plans to get married on Sunday at David’s graduation on Friday night.  This way, they would have their closest family members in town and by their side for the big day.  As it turns out, things didn’t go exactly as planned and some travel plans were falling through.  So David and Jessica decided to break the news to their family a few days early to make sure everyone would be in town to celebrate with them.

This couple was so awesome.  I love how much fun they had while we were with them.  From running through the fields to the way David kept cracking Jessica up, you can see just how much fun these two had on their big day.  We are so honored they invited us to be a part of the elopement they wanted to share with their family and allowing us to be a part of the huge surprise for their friends with this Same Day Edit film.

Congratulations you two…. And thank you for bringing us along for the ride.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Natasha + Travis :: “Conquer the World Together” :: Cliffs at Glassy

As filmmakers, the thing we love most about filming weddings is the fact that every story is different.  We don’t go in with a script and as shot list like traditional films.  Instead, we watch the day unfold and create a story from a blank canvas.  We let the bride, the groom, their friends and their family put paint on the canvas and then we weave it all together into a portrait that tells the story of the couple and their day.

Sometimes, you get handed a true gem during the day, something that really stands out in your mind and you’re thinking to yourself the whole time “This is AWESOME!” For us, that moment happened during Travis and Natasha’s reception.  Everyone gave incredible speeches and told amazing stories, which made it difficult for us to narrow down exactly which ones to include in their highlights film, but in the end, we chose to use the ones that best told the story of the day.

We are really proud of the way this one turned out…. The story we were able to tell.  It’s a true testament to the love these two have for each other that their friends and family got so emotional while talking about them and their lives together.  It was definitely a wedding we will remember for quite some time.
