“I am so happy this day has arrived, I have never been more confident in any decision that I have ever made.”

Lauren & Chris wrote each other such heartfelt letters on the morning of their wedding. They were the perfect introductions for the beginning of their wedding film. You can hear how in love with each other they are! We love it when couples write letters to each other because it is a great way to tell their story.

Anthony summarized his own wedding day perfectly, have a read!:
Words can’t describe how amazing our day was. I got to marry my best friend and love of my life. As a wedding photographer, I have been to a lot of weddings and have seen many, many different versions of someone else’s perfect wedding – some more perfect than others. I wanted an absolutely perfect wedding for Courtney because she deserves nothing less. I gave my two cents wherever I could and I was (of course) in charge of hiring our photographer and videographer. I knew right away who I was going to choose for those roles. I worked with Mike and AWF at a wedding last year and was utterly blown away by their work. I knew I needed to have them.
Our wedding day finally arrived and I went in to it with absolutely zero nerves. I guess shooting weddings somewhat prepared me for my own wedding. I surprised Courtney by having our musician play “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri as she walked down the aisle. She wanted to walk down to that song SO bad, but we were limited to the church music. I pulled some strings and was able to arrange for that song to be played. Courtney was shocked. I saw tears streaming down her face as she walked toward me. I could not believe I was about to marry my best friend. And I still was not nervous. Courtney was glowing and so was I. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful.
Our reception was undeniably everything I could have imagined it would be. Everything came together PERFECTLY. From the live band, to the video crew, to the photographers, to the uplighitng, etc etc etc. Everyone could not stop complimenting our wedding. The quote “the best wedding I’ve ever been to” was thrown around quite a bit that night and I am so happy people felt that way. I wanted this wedding to be an absolute showstopper for Courtney and I feel that it truly was.

Charlottesville, VA Wedding // Megan & Sonny’s Same Day Edit // Good, Better, Best // One Couple, Two Weddings

When Megan and Sonny began dating, they spent a great deal of time in Northern Virginia going to different vineyards and enjoying the wine country of the East Coast. Because this place meant so much to them, they decided to host both of their weddings there!

Their weekend started in Afton, VA at Veritas Vineyard with a wine tasting welcome for their family and friends. The beautiful hills and mountain tops of Virginia set the perfect scene for the weekend. We had a great time shooting some beautiful shots of the couple with Scott and Melissa from Hopkins Studios in Savannah, GA.

The weekend continued to Keswick Vineyard for their first wedding ceremony and celebration of the weekend.  Sonny’s Indian heritage came through in the Barat, Ceremony and traditional wedding performance by his sister.

The following day, they had a second wedding ceremony and reception at the picturesque Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards where the sun gleamed through the clouds that lingered all weekend for some amazing moments during the creative session. The Christian ceremony was officiated by Megan’s step father and allowed the guests to enjoy a bit of Meg’s culture. We could not have asked or dreamed of a more beautiful landscape of vineyards and rolling hills in the background, epic!

Both Receptions concluded with Boston Sound and Lighting providing awesome entertainment. Each night the dancefloor was packed. On Saturday’s wedding Deejay Yogz caved and played 5 “one last song’s” but after a while the guests started chanting, “one more wedding” instead. The night ended with a romantic and fun sparkler exit for the newlyweds and continued to Ten in Charlottesville for an after party with more entertainment from BSL.

It was such an honor to be part of the wedding pros that participated in this amazing gathering of supportive and warm family and friends from all over the globe.  Sonny and Meg could have chosen anyone and we were very honored to have been entrusted with their wedding film!  Enjoy their Same Day Edit!

Ali & Billy’s wedding was the quintessential Newport, RI wedding.  They held their nuptials and reception at the historic Rosecliff Mansion on Bellevue Ave in Newport.  The details at this wedding were epic and we had such a great time shooting this amazing couple’s wedding day.  From their first look to the energetic reception, there was no lack of action and details to capture.  These are the weddings that make us happy to shoot!

Thank you to the couple for having us at their wedding and thank to all the amazing professionals for their collaboration!  Keeping the couple first in vision and execution is our goal!

Julie and Mike’s wedding day took place in lovely Newport, RI.  We’ve known Julie because she works in the special events industry and runs the special events at the New York Yacht Club.  We are so happy to have been able to capture their wedding day on such an amazing day in September.  All day Julie and Mike could not have been a more perfect couple to shoot and spend the day with!

Having shot many weddings in Newport we were so glad to be shooting prep at the Pelham Court Hotel, The Newport Harbor Hotel, Ochre Court for formals and then amazing Fort Adams for the Ceremony and Reception.  The Sugar Babies did a fantastic job of keeping the party upbeat and fun!  We had the pleasure of working with great professionals:

What is the value of a Wedding Film?

What is the value of a Wedding Film?
 

We are always asked about the value of our wedding films and we thought what better way to answer that question than by having one of our recent couples answer it for us! Holly and Lance had their wedding at Castle Hill Inn in Newport and when they came in to watch the premiere of their film at our Newport studio we asked them a few questions and here were their responses.

Thank you to Peter Silvia of Peter Silvia Photography for introducing us to such an amazing couple! www.PeterSilviaPhotography.com
