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.
