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 :: 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 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 :: 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 :: 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.

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 Highlights Film :: Erica + Isaac :: “The Right Key” :: Old Cigar Warehouse :: Greenville, SC

For us, there is no greater passion than telling the story of two people in love.  As filmmakers, there’s nothing better than being able to create a film like this where others can get a glimpse into the lives of two people who share such an amazing love.  In the case of Erica and Isaac, when i see two people who clearly love each other as much as they do, it makes me want to love others better.

Erica and Isaac both share a huge love for music.  Isaac is an amazing guitar player and Erica has an insane talent for singing, so it was only natural for their friend and worship leader at their church to marry them.  I love the fact that their ceremony was so reflective of their lives and their story.  You could see their personality throughout the entire video, but nowhere did it shine as clearly as during their ceremony.  The entire day was a fun as it looks on film, with everything culminating at their reception where everyone had a great time celebrating Erica and Isaac’s big day.

Wedding Highlights Film :: Courtney + Blake :: “A Home For My Heart and Soul” :: Rock Quarry Garden :: Greenville, SC

There is no question that music played a huge role in Blake and Courtney’s relationship. When we first met, they spent a lot of time going over their history with music and telling the stories about how music influenced their lives. It was an important part of their lives and they used it to tell their story on their wedding day in such a beautiful way.

Blake and Courtney left their friends and family in tears as they read their vows to each other, told their story and expressed their love to each other. The backdrop at the Rock Quarry Garden in Greenville was beautiful that day and the perfect setting for such a memorable occasion. After that, Blake and Courtney had an epic reception at Fluor Field at the West End where they spent the rest of the night celebrating with their friends and family. It was truly an amazing night for everyone that was there to celebrate with Blake and Courtney.
