Tascha & Patch | An EPIC New Orleans Wedding!

You guys. This New Orleans wedding celebration was insanely epic. Tascha and Patch went to college in New Orleans and wanted to bring all of their friends and family from their hometown of Miami to The Big Easy to celebrate with them, and boy did they celebrate. We have never been to a wedding where all of the guests were looking so fine (all of the men wore white tuxedo jackets!). And these fine looking guests partied all night! We had such a wonderful time with Tascha, Patch, and all of the amazing vendors they hired to make their dream wedding a reality.

Ellen & Josh | The sweetest couple have a destination wedding in New Orleans!

Ellen is from New Orleans. Josh is from New York. They met and live in New York but wanted to celebrate their nuptials in New Orleans.

Before the wedding we did something a little different with them. We met up with them before the wedding day and did an interview about their love story. It gave us an opportunity to know them in such a more intimate way which in turn gave us a much deeper insight on how to best tell their wedding day story on film. We are so happy with how this turned out. When we re-watch their film we find ourselves laughing one minute and crying the next. That was basically the gist of their New Orleans wedding day. So many laughs and so many tears.

Jessie & Francesco | A Virginia Estate Wedding on Super 8

Where do we even begin telling you about this wedding?

Jessie emailed us before she even picked out a wedding date and a venue because she wanted to base her wedding date on our availability. She told us video and photography were the most important things to her. So no pressure, right?

We are so grateful we had the chance to attend Jessie and Francesco’s Virginia wedding day. Every detail was so gorgeous, and Jessie did most of the design work herself! They even wrote their own vows which had all of the guests (and us!) in tears. Then they threw a super fun reception which ended with Francesco singing every word to Kiss from a Rose!

We are seriously so grateful that Jessie and Francesco found our work and brought us to Virginia to film their wedding. It was one of the major highlights of our year!

Alanna + Blake | New Orleans Wedding film

This wedding was extra special. Blake and Alanna are some of our very favorite people and they happened to get married in one of our very favorite cities. Alee was actually a bridesmaid (and light holder during the reception!), and the night ended in the most perfect way: a second line through the streets of New Orleans celebrating the marriage of two incredible people.

Bek + Drew | Alys Beach Wedding

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!

Kristina + Lee | Chicago Wedding Film

Kristina and Lee were such a sweet couple with the most amazing love story, spanning two continents and ten years. It was one of the weddings most filled with love and happiness from friends and family that we've ever experienced. And you can't get a better view than the one of the Chicago skyline from their reception! 

Special thanks to our AMAZING friend Chad Husar for recommending us and letting us crash at his apartment during this wedding. He’s one of our best friends and one heck of a good photographer!

Featured on Style Me Pretty! | Lauren + Raley

Lauren and Raley were the sweetest. They met in college and have been together for ten years! They were so happy on their wedding day, and they didn’t even mind a little rain, even with an outdoor ceremony. Lauren said the rain made her feel like she was in “Pride and Prejudice.” It was a small, intimate garden ceremony, followed by a beautiful candlelit dinner, where their family toasted them, and everyone laughed and cried. We couldn’t have been more honored to be there to capture all the love and laughter.

Their film was featured on Style Me Pretty today. Check out the post! http://www.stylemepretty.com/little-black-book-blog/2016/08/06/intimate-texas-garden-wedding-film/

Cristy + Eric: A Miami Wedding Film

Cristy and Eric's wedding was one of the most fun weddings we have filmed this year. They are both from Miami, but they met at school in New Orleans, so their reception was full of New Orleans details, including a second line band! On a side note, can I say how awesome Miami is?! We LOVED it. If it weren't for the horrible traffic, we'd move there tomorrow. 

Anyway, here is their wedding film! 

Ally + Mark: A Bermudian Savannah Wedding

First, I should apologize for the fact that it has been a million months since I have posted anything on the blog. Life has been insane, but I really am going to try to blog more! 

Secondly, I have a fantastic wedding to share today. We met Mark and Ally a couple years ago when they were the photographers of the wedding we filmed in Bermuda. They are both Bermudian citizens and live there full time. At the time we met them, they were seriously dating, and it was only a matter of time before Mark popped the question. They decided to get married in Savannah, GA, because Ally had gone to college there and had family from the area. When they asked us to film the wedding, we were ecstatic, because even though we only met them for a few hours, we knew that we really liked them. They are fun, kind people, and we couldn't be happier that they found each other. (Plus we got to use some Super 8, and we always love that!) Here is their film! Enjoy!


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!
