It is always so special to be asked to film a wedding of a sibling of a former bride. I shot Megan’s sisters wedding years ago and it was such a treat to get to celebrate with this family again! Such a close family and so many sweet words were shared this day. But there is something just so special about a Father giving away his youngest that somehow gets me every time. This wedding was no exception. I just love these words and the emotion that Megan’s dad has as he shares them. Congratulations Megan and Jed – I can’t wait to share this edit with you!
I don’t really know how I keep getting so lucky to have such amazing couples. These two were so in LOVE and couldn’t stop smiling at each other and loving each other all day long it was just a JOY to be around them! Not to mention we got to shoot in our most favorite art gallery, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art yet again! Beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of Sorrows, and the Karen Davis Project just ROCKED the party at the Nelson! Such a beautiful day – enjoy your sneak peek guys!!

I loved getting to tell this couple’s wedding story! We had much in common as both Lora and John met at Kansas State University just like Sam and I did! The fact that their wedding took place two days before our 19th anniversary and listening to so many great K-State stories brought back many good memories for me. These two had many beautiful personal touches that they put into their wedding day. The John Deer tractor that they used as a get-away car belonged to John’s Grandpa, and both shocks of wheat in Lora’s bouquet came from John’s and Lora’s Grandpa’s farms. There are many more moments and details from this day that you don’t get to see just yet – have to wait to see the feature film for those! Thank you Lora and John for letting me be a part of your day!

Oh my goodness – the beauty and romance in these two! Just wow. There was just something about the love that these two have for each other along with the tradition of a Greek Wedding day that was just stunning. These two wrote the most beautiful letters to each other and poured so much of their love into them they were very much like personal vows. It was such an honor to be part of this day – can’t wait for this feature!

This was one of those weddings where it was SO DIFFICULT to not just do the entire edit while I was working on the sneak peek! There is so much beauty in this day that just didn’t fit in this quick little trailer! What you DO get to see and hear are some super sweet moments between Allie and Ron and some beautiful words that they wrote to each other on their wedding day. I can’t wait to add the magnificent footage from Redemptorist Catholic Church and more amazing moments and details from the Nelson-Atkins Museum of art. So so pretty! Thank you guys for letting me be part of your wedding day!

I don’t know, can you have a “wedding crush”? Well, if you can I do. This wedding. The colors, the style, the words, the FUN, the band, well all of it. LOVE. Not to mention the cool as a cucumber couple and bridal party who didn’t skip a beat when the back tire on the trolley exploded on a rush hour highway. Not to worry, they just all hopped in the photo/video teams cars and away we went to the ceremony! Didn’t miss a beat. LOVE. That is how I got a selfie like THIS! Don’t worry Mom, I didn’t take the picture.
Sorry, had to share that one. I love this little sneak peek – What a great group. You just gotta watch!

As I mentally prepare for three weddings and a rehearsal dinner over Memorial Day weekend this year, it seems to be a perfect time to reflect on wedding video. A wedding videographer friend of mine in Boston inspired me to ask a few of my former couples what they valued about their wedding video. It was a very humbling experience to hear their kind words and really overwhelming to learn how the value of their wedding film has increased after the wedding day. The overarching thing that every couple said was that they would never consider skipping it or skimping on a quality film. We see this in wedding magazines and blogs, but to hear it from actual couples is pretty wonderful. There really is something about the combination of visual moments and the SOUNDS of the wedding day that make wedding video so powerful. It is one of the only things that lasts after the wedding is over and is the record of a new family being born.
Watch for yourself!
Big thank you to Becca and Jon, Emily and Ben, Melissa and Michael and Mallory and Casey! You guys are awesome!
Oh my goodness. These two are the sweetest pair! So much joy on their faces and everyone around them – it was the most beautiful wedding day. Mary planned every last detail with the help of Christine with Celebrations of Love and truly had her dream wedding. Our Lady of Sorrows looked like a painting with the soft pink next to the ornate alter and marble and I don’t think Dark Horse Distillery has ever looked so amazing. And that bridal gown! Breathtaking! This little trailer will have to hold you until the highlight wedding film is released! It will be stunning!
