We loved this wedding.
When Stephanie and Blake contacted us to film their wedding down on Sea Island, we jumped at the chance to work with these two. Not only were they getting married at one of our favorite destinations, but after talking to them before the wedding, we knew we were in for a fun day.
When we arrived at The Cloister at Sea Island, we saw the rain clouds in the distance that were threatening our day. Undeterred, we were able to enjoy the great weather for a little while and capture some aerial drone footage before we arrived as well as some excellent prep footage of everyone. As the ceremony was drawing near, we decided to battle the rain and take Stephanie and Blake out to the Avenue of Oaks on St Simon’s Island for some footage of them together. It’s there that we decided to do their first look and despite the constant battle with the weather, Stephanie and Blake were troopers and we were able to get some amazing footage of them in the beautiful surroundings. It was such a quiet, intimate location that the two of them were able to let their guard down and just be themselves, which made for some epic footage.
During their ceremony, Stephanie and Blake decided to write their own vows, which, as you can see, was the perfect choice. They spoke from their heart and you could feel the emotion in the room. After hearing their vows and then the speeches at their reception, it was a no-brainer to build their highlights film around their words and the words of their friends. All of that, combined with footage at the Cloister and their amazing party at the Beach Club makes this one of our favorites this year.
