Lauren and Brian - A Testimonial

We filmed Lauren and Brian's wedding in 2007. It was a very fun wedding that happened at Anthony's Pier 9 on a Sunday in May. There were so many personal elements to this wedding; from the Disney decor to the unusual, but awesome music choices. You'll hear about some in the testimonial, but my favorite was when they all gathered on the dance floor to dance to the Cantina music from Star Wars.

Thanks again to Lauren and Brian for offering to do this video for us!

You can see more from this wedding at our website.

Marissa's Bridal Prep

All brides are happy on their wedding day and all brides smile throughout the day, but Marissa just could not contain herself for one second. She was smiling, laughing and joking around with everyone from the moment that we arrived to film her (I would be willing to bet that it was most likely from the moment she woke up, but we have no video evidence to support that).

As you watch through this clip you will notice that there is really only one moment where Marissa has a calm wash over her; when her dress is being done up and her brother walks in to see her. She tries to smile, but you can see the emotion behind it. She bounces back immediately though because she knew that when her brother arrived that Justin was waiting outside to start their photos. She was so excited to see him and in such a hurry get there that she almost forgot to put on her jewelry, garter and veil. In those moments, the bride that I thought was already giddy became consumed with such intense happiness. I hope that everyone that has been together for nine years like Marissa and Justin have can still be this excited to see each other. They are very truly in love.

Marissa and Justin's Cocktail Hour

There was so much going on during this cocktail hour! It was high energy, fun and smiles from everyone the moment that they arrived. I love the song choice. It suits this party crowd very well!

Marissa said that she loved all the new details from the renovation at the Grand and was glad that it was done before for her wedding. You will see many of the details that she loves in this clip. She wanted to make sure that we didn't miss a thing.

Here are the highlights from Miriam and Mike's wedding at Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa.

Miriam's Bridal Preparations

Here is Miriam's Bridal Preparations segment. I remember going between smiles and tears when I edited this segment. From the sentimental song and the sweet interactions with the children to the scenes with her mom and the entrance of her Dad (where I ALWAYS lose it no matter how many times I have watched it). It still effects me even watching it back now.

The excitement, joy and anticipation on Miriam's face with the juxtaposition of the look on her Dad's face when he sees her for the first time in her gown. You can see the proud father in him trying to hold back the tears of the father giving his little girl away. When people ask me why we only do weddings, this is the best reason I can think of. I love watching for all these moments to happen and being there to catch them.

Miriam and Mike Dancing Highlights

Reception Dancing at Miriam and Mike's Wedding.

When I first met with Miriam, she was concerned that her wedding video might be lacking in dancing
because their families have a history of not being big on dancing. It just goes to show you that you never know what will happen at your wedding.
