Lindy + Jared // Biloxi, MS Wedding

In April we traveled to Biloxi, MS for the beautiful wedding of Lindy and Jared! The groom and groomsmen prepped for the day at the new Margaritaville Resort while the bride and bridesmaids got ready at the venue, upstairs at the Slavonian Lodge. Lindy was assisted with her dress by her mom, and she also had a really sweet First Look with her dad! It was perfect weather the entire day, which helped set the scene for the bride and groom's special First Look under the beautiful oak trees. The way Jared looked at Lindy as he saw her in the wedding dress for the first time was priceless!

The ceremony was held in the large ballroom at the lodge. The bride and groom's families were seated in front of the stage. Other guests were seated at beautifully decorated tables detailed with fresh flowers already set for the reception. Lindy was escorted into the ballroom by her father up the aisle and by her groom up the stairs to the stage. The couple exchanged vows and rings underneath a gorgeous arch of flowers. We also thought it was cute when the ring bearer pulled a little Rubix cube out of his pocket to play with while on stage! After their vows were sealed with a kiss, the chairs where the family had been seated were moved aside to make room for the dance floor while the bridal party took pictures outside. 

We loved how many flowers were around the room and their cool globe used as a guest sign-in! Everything was decorated in a really sophisticated grand style; from one of the largest cakes we've seen to the amazing ice sculpture, it was really something to see! After finishing up some pictures for the photographers and drone shots for us, the couple was announced as they re-entered the reception. Jared shared a sweet dance with his bride Lindy, as well as his mother. Then Lindy and her father started to what at first seemed like a "normal" father/ daughter dance. In the middle of the song, the music started to skip as if something had gone wrong with the DJ's equipment. Everyone was looking around trying to figure it out when all of the sudden a new song came on while Lindy and her father started dancing in sync! They had rehearsed this dance all along that featured a medley of hip-hop, disco, country line dancing, and the twist- such a special memory with her dad! They ended the dance by pulling in other family and bridal party members to join them on the dance floor. Everyone was having so much fun, and we loved how full their dance floor stayed almost the entire evening! One of our favorite shots is of Lindy's grandparents dancing together, and you can see Lindy and Jared to the left of them dancing together as well. We ended our time at the reception by grabbing a few shots of the couple's traditional money dance with their guests, the awesome vintage car they rented, and of course a beautiful sparkler exit at the front of the lodge.

We are very grateful for both families, the wedding party, and the awesome team of vendors for helping to make this wedding day go so smoothly and beautifully! We really enjoyed working alongside the talented photographers, Mark and Jeff!

We had a lot of fun shooting and editing this wedding video! RD captured some breathtaking drone shots of the beach as well as the venue that are featured all throughout the film. But we also had a "blooper" (aka crash!) that we have shared below for a good laugh! (The drone was not damaged thankfully)

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!

Emily + Blake {Wedding} - Natchez, MS

Happy Spring! 

We are almost finished with our busy editing season and will soon move into wedding season again! Our latest wedding we are now able to share with you was set at a venue you may recognize from another film of ours - The Auburn Antebellum Home in Natchez, MS. It was such a pleasure to be part of Emily and Blake's wedding! The groom's reaction as his bride walked up the aisle was priceless. The weather and lighting was perfect during the late afternoon ceremony. The reception was held mainly in the back courtyard, beautifully decorated tables and lights strung across the entire area. Just as the couple was announced by the DJ and entered for their first dance, it started to rain. Ironically, their song was the Adele version of "To Make You Feel My Love" and these are the first lines:

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

They continued to dance in the rain until it picked up and started to really pour. Just when we thought they would have to come inside and finish after the rain passed, the mother of the bride and a bridesmaid came running to the couple's side with umbrellas in hand. They stood in the rain just to hold the umbrellas over the bride and groom so they could finish their first dance - we thought that was so sweet!

The rain eventually cleared out and all of the guests were able to enjoy the dance floor. The bride and bridesmaids also had been practicing all day for a surprise choreographed dance that they later performed at the reception! We are so glad to have been able to film another Natchez wedding!

Jordan + PJ {Wedding} - Hattiesburg, MS

Happy Thursday!

Back in late October, we had the pleasure of working with the Bakery Building in Hattiesburg, MS for two weekends in a row. Right across the street from the train station, it has become one of the most popular venues for weddings in the city, and understandably so! The vintage industrial character of this building is unmatched with its original hardwood floors, metal beams on the ceiling, and exposed brick walls. According to their website: "Originally built in 1927, The Bakery Building served as a full-scale bakery for many years. Over time and through changes in ownership (and several hurricanes), the building fell into disrepair. In 2003 an ambitious project began to restore the building, expose the inherent beauty and character of the space, and repurpose it for life today." 

Jordan & PJ discovered our work just one month before their wedding day and decided they had to book us! We are so excited that they did- their wedding video is such a sweet one. The letters they read to one another during their First Look were so heartfelt and authentic. Probably the most emotional part of the day was the Father-Daughter First Look. The reaction of Jordan's dad seeing her as a bride for the first time was absolutely priceless. We also loved how fun their Father/ Daughter and Mother/Son dances were at the reception. Jordan and her dad danced to "You've Got a Friend in Me" from the Disney movie, Toy Story (you can see in the video that before the dance, her dad is wearing a Woody cowboy hat.) We loved working with their families and team of vendors on this beautiful wedding day in Hattiesburg!

Bethanie + Jairus {Wedding} - Fort Ashby, WV

In the middle of October, we had the privilege of filming for our Maryland side of the family! We traveled to Fort Ashby, WV for the beautiful wedding of our cousin Jairus, and his bride Bethanie. The elegant ceremony and fun-filled reception were both held at Brookdale Farms. We loved getting to capture all of these priceless moments for our family, and in the future, we are planning to edit a 'blooper' film together for them! On Christmas day while visiting everyone in Maryland, we were able to show this film on the big screen so nearly all of our family could watch it for the first time together. Everything about this wedding was beautiful - we really love to travel, and we hope to have more weddings up this way in 2018!
