    “I can think of no better companion for my brother, Jonathan, than my sister, Emily.” – Amber, Jonathan’s twin and Emily’s BFF

    We love Gainesville weddings. We rarely have them which makes them that much more special to us. And, what’s a Gainesville wedding without a trip to the stadium to play some football with your bridal party? We love Jonathan and Emily. Even though it rained cats and dogs on their wedding day – they didn’t let it deter them from having a great time.

    Michelle and Keith’s wedding was one filled with lots of personal details, each with a story to tell. We were only too happy (and honored) to be there to capture it all. From Keith’s incredibly thoughtful proposal, to Michelle’s surprise guest for her new husband, a Johnny Cash impersonator. Michelle picked one of our newest packages, the Feature Film, for her wedding and we believe it was the perfect choice. There was so much to capture and so many incredible stories to include, that a Highlight Reel simply would not have done the job.

    We met Matt (along with his team) at a wedding a few years back. He is so incredibly easy to get along with and his team works so well together. As Natalie says, they are like a “well-oiled machine.” Since then, we’ve become great friends. We’ve not only had the chance to work together multiple times at weddings, but we’ve also had a few sessions with Matt (Maternity and Little Man’s 1st Birthday), and we had the honor of capturing Matt proposing to his wife, Natalie.

    So, when Matt came to us with the idea of shooting a promotional video for his business, we were immediately stoked! We shot over the course of 2 days and really worked hard to figure out exactly who Matt was, and why his business is unique.

    We had a great time with Matt, Natalie and James (Matt’s 2nd shooter and Brother-in-Law). Matt’s longtime clients, The Duggers, had some really beautiful words to describe Matt and what he does. They were also very patient while we got all the shots we needed for Matt’s promo.

    If every shoot was as fluid and fun as Matt’s was, we’d say we have the best job in the world.

    Oh yeah, and the little puppy featured is not so little any more! Sampson Whytsell is almost 100lbs! Whew, I feel like we need a “Where are they now” session with Sampson. :)

    And be sure to check out Matt’s website and like him on Facebook!

  • Crosswater Hall Wedding Highlights // Andre + Abby

    Where do I even start with Abby and Andre? These two were married at one of our favorite locations to shoot, Crosswater Hall in Nocatee, FL. We first shot at this location for Heather and Rob’s Wedding, and immediately fell in love. It’s one of the best places in the Nocatee/Jacksonville Area to have your wedding at.

    Okay, so Abby and Andre are super sweet. They wrote their own vows – which we are totally loving this new trend with our couples – and had some incredibly beautiful words to express their love for each other. Andre certainly had us in tears.

    They also know how to have fun – dancing back down their wedding aisle, busting a move at their reception and hosting an incredible 7 (or was it 10?) course dinner. We also had the opportunity to meet Angel of Angel Esparar Photography. She is totally awesome and her work… well, it speaks for itself. :)

     Abby and Andrea, thank you for including us in your day and introducing us to some incredible vendors (and for one of the most delicious wedding dinners EVER).

    Much ♥ to you both.

  • Sweetwater Branch Inn Wedding Highlights // Xiaotie + Yan

    Yan and Xiaotie were married at the beautiful Sweetwater Branch Inn right here in Gainesville, FL. We were immediately struck by what these two had to say about each other. AND they had an orange and blue themed Gator wedding. How cool is that? (images by Verve Studio)

    As you can see, this wasn’t the typical wedding we shot. Yan and Xiaotie actually had two wedding ceremonies on the same day. The first was the prototypical American-style wedding held in the gardens of Sweet Water Branch. Totally beautiful and the officiant, Chad Reed, did an amazing job as usual. Toward the end of the night, there was a traditional Chinese tea ceremony where bride and groom share tea with themselves and serve it to their parents symbolizing their union as one family. We’ve never seen this before but we hope we get the chance to shoot at least a few more in the future–Yan just looked so beautiful in her makeup and dress

    Thank you Xiaotie and Yan for choosing GBVideo (and the wonderful folks at Verve Studio) to capture your day!

    Much ♥
