Celebrating 4 Years of Capturing Love // GBVideo Anniversary

Russell Martin Photography // Ryan + Jen

My handsome business partner just reminded me that today is the 4 year anniversary of our business! We have been capturing life’s beautiful moments for 4 years – just WOW! Four years ago, armed with a Sony Handycam and a Nikon DSLR, we filmed our first wedding ever.

Thank you to Jen and Ryan for trusting us – without you both we wouldn’t be where we are today.

And big thanks to all the vendors from Jen and Ryan’s wedding, who helped us navigate our first wedding! Russell Martin PhotographyKara Winslow – Makeup ArtistCelebrations Catering, + G-nys Entertainment – Gainesville truly has a friendly vendor community which we love!

Happy Anniversary Ryan + Jen!

Treasury on the Plaza Wedding Highlights // Jason + Vonna

Let’s start by saying that the Treasury on the Plaza is one PIMP new wedding venue. Located in the heart of historic downtown St. Augustine, FL, literally right on the main plaza, this historic venue offers so many options for couples. Vonna and Jason had their ceremony here, cocktail hour and reception. They also have a gorgeous bridal suite for brides to get ready in – complete with makeup lights, salon chairs, and beautiful decor. Like truly – one amazing location.

And, the bar is located inside an old bank vault. MIND BLOWN. But, enough about the venue – and more on our gorgeous couple, Jason and Vonna! 

“Jason once said that his favorite thing about Vonna was that she’s not afraid to be herself in front of any other person in the room. And that is my favorite thing about Vonna as well.” – MOH

Jason and Vonna – what can I say? These two were never afraid to be themselves – whether it was dancing down the streets of St. Augustine or doing yoga poses on the lawn of a church. You two deserve all the happiness in the world, and we are so thankful you chose us to capture your day!

Marsh Landing Country Club Wedding Video // Daniel + Hawaii

Daniel + Hawaii // Feature Film from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

“My Son told me when he returned home to Jacksonville, he said ‘Daddy, I’m going to marry that woman.’ He has never told me that in my life. So, I’m just glad that you have found the love of your life.”

The tears were flowing all day long at Hawaii and Daniel’s Wedding – if there were ever two people who were truly meant to be together it would be Hawaii and Daniel. So happy we were there to capture it all! And of course, totally rad to hang out with the photog team, Matt Whytsell Photography!

And we just love what Hawaii had to say when she reviewed us! Here’s a snippet:

They are worth every penny…heck they are worth more pennies!!!! They know how to capture all the important things that you don’t even realize is important! They are prompt, down-to-earth, professional, and just plain nice! You read the contract and say… geez, several months before you get your video—OMG, I see why! I am still so amazed that in that amount of time they were able to create the most heartfelt product for my family all while taking care of their own!!

The best part was when she says “able to create the most heartfelt product for my family all while taking care of their own.” That right there really made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Sure, we def aren’t the fastest videographers to deliver your final product. We don’t rush to have it completed within a week of your wedding. And, after having our son, we were certainly backed up on edits! I do this full time, but I also take care of our son. He’s rambunctious and always manages to catch every cold, and stomach virus that comes our way.

But, in the end, I am always committed to delivering the best final product. I may spent 3 weeks editing a Feature Film – in between all of my mommy duties. And you know, when I’m done I just know it’s right. It’s perfect. And, if I don’t feel it is – I keep working. There has been quite a few films I’ve finished and decided to completely scrap and try a different angle. I never once regretted doing so because the final product ended up better than I ever expected!

We don’t do this because we have to. We do this because we love to. <3

Much Love, GBVideo

Disney Wedding Pavilion Highlights Video // Robert + Brynn

Robert + Brynn // Highlight Reel from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

“Brynn and Robbie were meant to be together, because somehow Brynn sensed this early on and figured out how to crack the Robbie code. And it worked. And here we are today.” – Best Man, referring to Brynn making the first move and giving Robbie her number. Gotta love a girl who takes action!

When Brynn first contacted us to film her July 4th Disney Wedding, I probably let out a tiny scream of excitement. As a native Floridian, I have always had mad love for Disney. So, to have the opportunity to capture a Disney Wedding was beyond anything I could imagne. Def a top 10 Videographer’s bucket list item.

Brynn also hired one of our photographer favs, Ashley McCormick Photography, so we had someone super fly to hang out with. :)
