Sometimes you are just so busy running a business, you forget to run your business, you know? That must be what happened here because we have only posted two weddings from our 2017 season...but we have done quite a few more. For some reason, this one sticks out in my mind. Maybe because I shot this one by myself (something typically Jared does). But probably the reason is, I loved this family. I loved this wedding. I had a great time being a fly on the wall and watching all the joy shared. Best wishes to the happy couple!
Back in Stillwater and it feels soooo good! We had a blast at this one, and it was great to be back around our old stomp'n grounds. Thank you to Meggan of Truly You Photography for recommending us! We always have such a blast spending the day with Meggan and Jenna, and this day was no exception. Not to mention Kylie and Colin were so laid back and fun!
I particularly love the moment when her bridesmaids see her dress. And, the dancing! Oh the dancing! No one two-steps like those AGRs!
Well, I had intended to post this last week, but that was before our family came down with some gnarly cold. Everyone was coughing and no one was sleeping. And, poor Jared, who had the shortest bought of it, got to play nurse-maid to everyone else. Anyway, one week and about 40 clorox wipes later, here we are.
Thank you again to Lauren and Matt! We soooo enjoyed working with you and your family! We wish you the best in all you do! May you have a long, happy marriage!
Seize the 'good stuff,'
Did you know Carpe Diem films proposals?!?? Well, we do! And, it is sooooo much fun! I love the planning, the surprise. The letter from Aaron to Elie's father, well....it will choke anyone up. We are so excited to be a part of this fun, adorable couple's upcoming nuptials in Dallas! And, it's right around the corner. So, in honor of all those Valentines proposals and all the love in the air this weekend... enjoy. - Lauren
As Jared and I were putting the finishing touches on Lauren and Matt's wedding video last night (I know, I know...it is a criminal offense to not watch the Superbowl... but, we are just not in to football. We did watch the final episode of The Knick, season 2...and... AH-MAZING...but, I digress), I was reminded how sweet and sincere their our story was.
I hope they look back on this video from time to time and are reminded of who they were when they got married...all the hope and joy and purpose and anticipation the beginning of a marriage brings.
What a totally fun couple this was! Seriously, check out their awesome dance moves. The stars aligned to give this couple the perfect cool weather day in December! What luck! And, it was so fun to see so many of our past brides at this wedding. It is the highest compliment when our clients refer us to their friends. Thank you, thank you. It means the world to us.
When we meet with clients, we often are met with questions about what else is included in their wedding package outside of the ceremony and the highlight reels we publish on this website and our social media accounts. We always have the same answer, "Anything we think you might want to watch again." You want something on film, tell us! And we will film it.
It is so hard in those meetings to list the 'bonus features,' for your wedding, because I have no idea what your wedding day will hold. And, neither will you. Here is a great example of a surprise performance by a guest at the wedding. And, he nailed it. Without further ado...
Tulsa, Here we come! I tell you what, we just had the BEST time with this group! (Even though they were actively rooting against my OSU Cowboys-wink-I guess we will forgive them). And, I just cannot say enough about this beautiful new venue and its lovely owners. Everyone go check it out at http://www.spainranch.com/ .
Megan and Nathan, thank you for all the laughs and fun times at your wedding (and while editing your awesome honeymoon footage-- part two to come later). We truly enjoyed it!
