Ashley + Ivan: an Arkansas Barn Wedding

We filmed Ashley and Ivan's wedding last May at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch in Dardanelle, AR. Ashley and Ivan were so sweet and amazing to work with, and they were SO HAPPY. Honestly, they were one of the happiest, most in love couples that we've ever worked with. They met while salsa dancing in downtown Little Rock, which I thought was such an amazing story, particularly because the idea of going salsa dancing by myself is so terrifying that I think Ashley is such a brave woman! And her bravery clearly paid off! Ivan and his family are from Puerto Rico, and the whole day was a beautiful family affair, with everyone dancing the night away while the most amazing salsa band played. I wish every wedding we filmed was as fun as this one was. I hope you enjoy their film!

Happy New Year!

How can we even begin to sum up 2014? It has been ridiculous in the best possible way. We were able to stand beside 29 different couples as they said their vows and celebrated a lifelong commitment to each other, and on top of that we worked side by side with the best photographers, planners, designers, DJs, bands, caterers, and other wedding professionals in the business. We couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to capture the memories of a couple’s wedding day. It’s important work that we absolutely love doing.

If 2015 is half as exciting as 2014 then we’re in for a fun ride. We already have weddings scheduled in Chicago, Charleston, Miami, New Orleans, Houston, Austin, and a handful of cities in between. 

Here’s to love in 2015!

TRAILER: Miranda + Dillon

One service that we have started offering our couples is a shorter version of their short film, which we are calling a trailer. Initially, doing this seemed like extra work, but I can honestly say that it has been so inspiring and has helped us to see our films in a totally new light. When you're editing a film this short, you really have to decide what the most essential and beautiful shots are, and it makes you think about your work in a fresh, new way. 

Miranda and Dillon were such a sweet, friendly couple (and clearly beautiful people!), and they made our jobs easier by being so easygoing and fun to be around. Their wedding day in Natchez, Mississippi, was a beautiful day filled with laughter and dancing and friends, and we couldn't have been happier to get to be a part of it. 

Donnally + J.R.: an Arkansas Wedding Film

Today we are sharing another one of our films from 2013. Donnally and J.R. were married last summer at Donnally's parents' lakehouse in Mena, Arkansas. It was a beautiful, rustic farm wedding, designed and planned by the ever talented Jessica Kersey from Finishing Touch Events in Northwest Arkansas. The ceremony was a simple and touching outdoor service under an arbor and in front of a lovely lake. The reception was tented, with antique china place settings and peaches galore! Donnally and J.R. are such a sweet couple, and their love for each other was so evident on their wedding day. I hope you enjoy their film! 

Angie + Danny: a Bermuda Wedding Film

Since we just launched our new site, we wanted to reshare some of our films from earlier this year, and we have a great one to share first! 

Boy, was this wedding an amazing experience! We were recommended to Angie and Danny by a friend, and we jumped at the chance to film a beautiful destination wedding! Angie and Danny are an amazing couple from New York, and their friends and family traveled from all over the world to attend their wedding (literally! Angie's family is from Albania!) at the fabulous Fairmont Southampton Resort in gorgeous Bermuda. They were such a fantastic couple, and they bent over backwards to accomodate us and make us feel important to their big day, and we couldn't be more grateful. We had the most amazing experience climbing cliffs, walking on the pink sand beaches, and drinking famous Bermudian Rum Swizzles. We hope their wedding film fills you with the happiness and warmth of Bermuda!  

Katie + Kevin: a Little Rock Wedding Film

Today is a special day for Katie and Kevin! It's their anniversary! One year ago, we filmed their heartfelt wedding, and it was one of the sweetest weddings I've ever been to. We get compliments on their film all the time, but all the credit goes to Katie and Kevin, because they were the sweetest, most expressive, happiest couple. In honor of their anniversary (and since we have a new website/blog and we haven't posted this video here yet) we present to you Katie and Kevin's wedding film. Happy anniversary, y'all! 

Allison + Aaron: a Little Rock Wedding Film

We are excited to share Allison and Aaron's wedding film today! They were married in a traditional church ceremony, followed by a beautiful reception at the Country Club of Little Rock. They were such a sweet, happy couple, and Allison didn't stop smiling all day! I hope you enjoy the film!
