Rebekah + Alex // Louisville, MS Wedding

One of the best parts of our job is getting to know some amazing people who we may never have had the chance to meet otherwise. We have been really blessed to work with a lot of families who always gladly welcome us into one of the most important days of their lives! That is what made the wedding of Rebekah and Alex even more special than usual. Almost one year earlier, we filmed Alex’s brother’s wedding at Pierce Castle! We even filmed a special moment that happened at the reception between the couple and were able to include it near the beginning of their wedding film. It was really great getting to work with familiar faces and celebrate another happy wedding day with this sweet family! 

We started our adventure by traveling up to Louisville, MS to Legion State Park, where the wedding was being held the next day. We stayed in a little rustic cabin that sat overlooking the lake. The next morning we woke up early to get a shot of the fog rolling across the water- definitely worth it. When we arrived at the cottage where the bridal party was getting ready, Rebekah shared a special first look with her father followed by her groom, Alex. We got to go around and explore some of the park for their portraits- such a peaceful place.

The ceremony took place near the cottage in a little field surrounded by big, beautiful pine trees. The couple’s family and close friends gathered for this intimate celebration as leaves were quietly falling in the background- a perfect fall wedding. Before exchanging their vows, Alex and Rebekah asked their guests to actively participate in a "blessing of the rings" by passing around their set of wedding bands so each person could personally touch the rings and say a quick prayer for their marriage. Another reason why this was so special was because all four sets of grandparents were able to attend the wedding. As you find out in the film, the wedding was officiated by Alex's grandfather who shared heartfelt words during the ceremony. After the ceremony, everyone gathered for a beautifully decorated, brunch reception at the lodge. The bride and groom exited through a tunnel of flower petals on their departure. It was a beautiful day!!

Happy Father's Day!

For all of those walks down the aisle, dances under the lights, tears held back, words of wisdom shared, or memories held in our hearts- time spent with our fathers will forever be treasured.

It is a joy to capture these priceless moments for each family!

We hope everyone had a blessed Father’s Day,
- Ashley & RD

Happy Mother's Day!

This is dedicated to all the moms who planned every detail, cried happy tears, buttoned-up dresses, adjusted ties, and danced the night away. You are so appreciated, and your love doesn't go unnoticed on your son or daughter's wedding day.

Often times for weddings, the mother of either the bride or groom is the first person we meet. They are the unseen heroes of the wedding day- making sure every detail is just right and taking care of everyone around them. 

We’ve put together some of our favorite “momma moments” to celebrate this special week. We feel so privileged to document such an important day for these families. From giving a heartwarming speech to holding an umbrella over the bride and groom while they dance in the rain, these are truly priceless memories!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Marie + Andrew {Wedding} - Decatur, MS

It's not every day you get to film a wedding at a castle! Our latest wedding highlight video was filmed in Decatur, MS at Pierce Castle. One of our early wedding videos from 2016 was also filmed here.

Andrew and Marie were married just before Christmas so everything was decorated for the holiday festivities! We enjoyed filming both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day. On Friday, we stayed overnight in Philadelphia, MS which is nearby. This venue is only a few hours away from our home, but we still love to travel- we have several destination weddings coming up this year! 

There were many classic winter elements that gave the castle such a special touch. Each guest received a personalized Christmas ornament! And it was nice to have hot chocolate on this chilly day (cold even for Mississippi!).

The ceremony was located on the front patio under string lights and was officiated by the bride's father and the groom's grandfather. Both families were so welcoming all throughout the weekend. It's always a pleasure to be the wedding videographers at Pierce Castle!
