Keith + Michelle // Feature Film from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.
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.

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!
Mandie and Chris are one of our favorite couples ever. They were hilarious, down for anything, and had one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve been to. Every part of their day was filled with so much love and laughter. Just how we like them. :) And, hello? Isn’t Cross Creek Ranch like the BEST venue ever?
Oh yeah, and Mandie is a real life Disney Princess. She spends some of her days at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL playing some of your favorite Disney Princesses, like Ariel and Cinderella. So, she had plenty of experience smiling for the camera, dancing around and twirling for us. Yup, best Bride ever. Love her.
All those pretty lights. Totally in LOVE. Thank you Mandie and Chris for choosing US!
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.
Adore Events // Bride’s Night Out from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.
Every month, Gainesville-based wedding planning company, Adore Events, hosts a “Bride’s Night Out” to connect local brides with the best vendors in Gainesville in a no-pressure environment. The next one will be December 5th from 6:3o-8pm and has a “Bridal GLAM” theme. There will be a great Q&A with local vendors on how to get the perfect bridal look (hair/makeup/styling), and a photographer on hand to capture “before” and “after” shots of each bride.
A few months ago, we attended a Bride’s Night Out and put together a promotional video for the monthly event. It just so happens this was the same night I went into labor with Tanner. So, it’s safe to say, Bride’s Night Out will always hold a special place in my heart. ♥
Hope to see y’all there!
