We always love working with our good friend Lauren Kinsey, so when she recommend us for Bek and Drew’s wedding day were so excited to work with our good friend. But when we found out the wedding was in Alys Beach we flipped out. If you haven't been there, it’s one of the prettiest places in Florida, and we are always looking for an excuse to travel there! Things got even better when we met Bek and Drew. These two adorable lovebirds met while on a trip to Israel, and it was basically love at first sight at the JFK airport. The rest is history! Seriously, these two are beautiful inside and out and were such a joy to be around. Their friends and family were so much fun too and so kind. We’re so thankful Bek and Drew brought us down to Alys Beach to film their their unbelievably beautiful wedding day. Congratulations, friends!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO HOLLIE AND JAMES!
Hollie and James were married last November in Key West, Florida, in a completely private elopement ceremony (Nathan signed their marriage license as a witness!). Out of all of the weddings we've filmed, this one may be our favorite. It was so intimate and special, and because it was an elopement, we got to know Hollie and James much better than we typically get to know our couples. We spent two full days with them. The first day we were able to interview them and hear all about their love story, and we filmed them walking all around Key West and having a blast. The second day was their amazingly sweet wedding. They love each other so much, and it was so heartwarming to see. I hope you enjoy their super sweet love story meets wedding film!
Kathleen and Francesco were married in beautiful Sarasota, Florida, with a reception at the most amazing venue overlooking the water. They were such a sweet couple who met in Chicago, lived together in New York, and married in Sarasota, where Kathleen's family had vacationed for years. Kathleen's bridesmaid gave the most heartfelt toast at the reception that fully captures the love and happiness of this beautiful day:
"May your friendship bring curiosity, laughter, and joy to the most mundane of merry moments. May loyalty draw you close to one another when life presents challenges. And may your love for one another be written in your hearts and shape every day of the rest of your lives."
One of the awesome things about filming weddings is that we’re reminded every week that love transcends culture, traditions, and religions. It’s such a beautiful thing. Ever since we filmed our first Indian wedding we have absolutely fallen in love with them! While most weddings we film last for one day, Indian wedding celebrations last FOR DAYS!. It’s such a big party with family and friends traveling in from all over the world to show their love and support of the couple. So when Punya and Ravi reached out to us to film their Orlando Indian wedding we were ecstatic. We looked forward to filming their big weekend for months (and it’s not only because we would have an excuse to visit Disney World!). Punya and Ravi awed us with all of the thought and detail they put into their wedding planning. These two worked tirelessly to make sure the celebration was going to be one that their friends and family who travelled in from all over the world would never forget. Good news: it was an epic success.
I know I'm a little late on this, but I just wanted to wish y'all a happy new year and share a short reel of some of our favorite 2015 weddings! Last year we filmed so many amazing places, including Miami, New Orleans, Savannah, Austin, Sarasota, Chicago, and Houston, and 2016 is shaping up to be just as interesting!
