Rebecca + Connor - St. John in the Wilderness & Black Tie Afterparty

I would have to say that no two wedding videos are ever the same. There’s no cookie cutter recipe that I use, and from beginning to end it totally depends on the couple and the events that unfold. Nothing could be more true than this one! It was a perfect duo of sentiment and classic beauty mixed with uninhibited joy and fun. So how to tackle the video and make ONE highlight? I decided it simply had to be….both!

They had a beautiful ceremony planned at St. John in the Wilderness, with an impressive bridal party: 10 on the bride side and 13 on the grooms. Each bridesmaid held a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. These flowers were everywhere, bathing the ceremony and reception in beauty and color. Every pew was packed full of elegant wedding guests, laughing and crying along with the ceremony.

Then followed by the reception at Rebecca’s parent’s home in Flat Rock, NC. She had given me a tour of the reception site (her ) many months before her wedding date. She pointed where the white tents were gonna be set up, and described a “ladder dance” of which I had never heard before. How can there be so many people on the dance floor you would need a ladder? Post reception….it became clear. This was a rockin’ party with everyone busting a groove on the dance floor and not stopping until late into the night. Rebecca and her Dad started it off with “Who’s That Lady?”, with Connor and Mom jiving to “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)”. Not to be outdone, Rebecca and Connor’s first dance was to “Give It To Me Baby” by Rick James. The AMAZING live band, The Black and Blue Effect, was one of the most talented and spectacular bands I’ve seen at a wedding in my career. The singers, the musicians, the amount of songs they knew, their energy! and an OUTFIT CHANGE halfway through the performance! Never seen that before! Rebecca had requested NO slow songs for the reception, and they kept up the pace keeping everyone partying along with them.

So here is my highlight video for this amazing couple. Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding videographer! Rebecca wrote me after her full wedding video and said, “We quite literally laughed and cried our way through it.” That’s the greatest compliment I could ever receive. May you laugh and cry (tears of joy of course) for many more years to come. And I hope you eel the love, joy and happiness of these moments every time you watch your videos. Many happy wishes to you both!

Hunter + Luke - Cabin Ridge Mountain Top Wedding

This is one of the many weddings where I paired up with my partner and friend, Myriah Wood, to shoot together as Falcon and Wolf Weddings. We team up so we can offer photo AND video packages together, and Hunter and Luke are proof that our couples out there are enjoying the benefits of this partnership. I was so happy when Hunter wanted to add a Wedding Video to her day as well as a Ceremony Video, so we had full all wedding day amazingness covered!

Here’s a little wedding day teaser video for this amazing September couple, Hunter and Luke. Their wedding, a top a beautiful mountain at The Cabin Ridge Wedding Venue was full of fun and joy despite the hurricane looming just around the corner! They handled it like a seasoned wedding couple…together and with a smile. Then after some amazing BBQ (Alle, Heather and Shelbi rocked it out!), tear-jerkingly touching dances, a cake shmoosh, and some fun games put on my DJ Seven One, there was a grande (someone sprinkly although you’d never know it) Sparkler Exit! So much fun.

Congratulations and may you always weather the storms of life together, and preferably cuddling by a warm fire :)
