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 Teaser Film :: Chris + Amber :: Cliffs at Glassy Chapel

“Whenever I’ve ever thought about marriage, I always thought the same thing… That I want somebody I can build a life with… You are that person.” Those were just some of the words Chris wrote to Amber in the card he gave her before their wedding.  Being able to capture him reading those words to her and being able to capture her reaction was amazing and beautiful.  We loved so much about this couple and this day and we are so honored we got to be a part of it.

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 :: 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.
