Wishing y’all a wonderful Easter! We had a great time celebrating little man’s first Easter. Last year, we were just bringing this sweet little boy home from the hospital. Can’t believe it has been a year. If feels like it’s been 10 years, yet it feels like just yesterday. All you Moms out there will understand what I mean. :)

Easter is extra special this year because my best friend is pregnant! She also had one of the cutest photo announcements I’ve seen in forever. I wouldn’t expect any less from Em. She’s easily one of the most fabulous pregnant ladies I know – and one of the most maj person in my life. (images by Half Wolf Media)

Aren’t these just the most adorable images you have ever seen? Besides all picture of our little man, Tan. Obvs.

Love these two people and so incredibly happy for them I could burst into tears… which I probably will again at some point.

Much Love y’all.

Golden Ocala Wedding Highlights // James + Jessica

I mean… WOW. Look at that dress!?

Jessica’s dress was gorgeous – and PINK! Which totally complimented her personality. Jessica and James’s story of how they met is one of the most unique we’ve heard. Upon meeting James for the first time (before they started dating), Jessica’s Mother said “He’s the one you are going to marry.” It was meant to be between these two, and we couldn’t be more honored to have captured their day.

I know we don’t talk about this often, but we purchase the license to all the songs we use in our videos. James and Jessica’s reel was cut to “Once in a Lifetime” by Landon Austin and licensed through The Music Bed. For more deets on why we license the songs we use, and what this means – check out our articled titled “Why use licensed music?” and get informed!

Much love – GBVideo

Orange Park Hilltop Club Wedding Highlights // Dan + Katie

Dan + Katie // Highlight Reel from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

We love incredibly thoughtful gifts – and Katie sure had one for her groom, Dan. The raw emotion Dan shows while reading Katie’s letter and receiving Katie’s gift to him is intense. You can’t help but tear up! This has quickly become one of my favorite edits. From their first look, to the sweet letters they wrote each other. They make us smile. Dan and Katie 3 Dan and Katie 7 Dan and Keri 4 Dan and Keri 5

Dan and Katie were married at The Hilltop Club in Orange Park, FL. This little gem is so hidden, we would have never known it was there if it wasn’t for Katie and Dan’s wedding!

Once again, we had the opportunity to work alongside Sarah of Sarahdipity Photos. We absolutely love her, she keeps us laughing all day long and is so easy to work with. We also worked with her on Daniel and Elizabeth’s wedding at the River House in St. Augustine.

Dan and Katie – we wish you both the very best. You two were meant for each other. Thank you for choosing GBVideo!

Downtown Jacksonville Wedding Feature Film // Josh + Megan

Josh + Megan // Feature Film from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

Okay, anyone that knows Megan and Josh, obviously know that they know how to throw a party. These two were having non-stop fun on their wedding day. We felt like we were at a traveling party more than a wedding. It was like a breath of fresh air, with these two. They started their day at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Jacksonville (where their reception would be held), and took trolleys from the Hyatt to the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. All the groomsmen were decked out in different color shoes and shades – even the Priest couldn’t ignore their colorful shoes during the ceremony and excellently tied in Josh’s choice of red shoes and how red symbolizes love. Great move!

We’d never shot at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church before and were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful and elaborate the interior was – we wish we had an extra hour just to capture details of the church! We will be shooting there again this summer and can’t wait to spend more time capturing all the beautiful details. :)

Megan and Josh’s reception was a blast. They purchased Guest Well Wishes as an ala carte item from us – and Kyle enjoyed going around during the cocktail hour to capture all their guests. As the night went on, and the more intoxicated the guests became, the funnier the well wishes were. We know Megan and Josh are going to love all the fun stuff their guests said. :)

Megan and Josh – thank you for choosing us to capture your epic party!

Romantic Golden Ocala Wedding // George + Noel Highlights

Friday, December 20th, 2013 at 6:07pm

George + Noel // Highlight Reel from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

George and Noel had some of the sweetest vows we’ve ever heard a couple say to each other. They both wrote their own vows and they were filled with so much love. Even though Noel says they had a rough start with an awkward first date, George’s persistence won out and they went on a second date. Something incredible just clicked with these two as we were there to capture their beautiful and intimate ceremony at  Golden Ocala in Ocala, FL.

And, to top it all off, George built the altar they were married under himself by interweaving branches together (no ties!). Noel’s married a keeper. :)


Congratulations you two! And thank you so much for choosing GBVideo to capture your unforgettable day.
