  • Heather and Rob’s Nocatee Wedding Highlight Reel

    A few weeks ago, during our double header weekend, we captured Heather and Rob’s glam-ed out and totally FABULOUS wedding. I mean… this wedding had it going on. Everything was meticulously done from the crystals on the altar to the butterfly wall (which were each individually cut by the bride!). The details were perfect, just perfect. This was our second wedding testing out our new gear, the indislidermini and our new glidecam. I think it’s safe to say that with lots of practice and creativity, our new gear can turn out some pretty epic shots. Check out their highlight reel below to see what I’m talking about!

    Their wedding was held at Crosswater Hall in Nocatee, FL. Seriously beautiful. We also got to meet the husband and wife team of Wilson Photography (loving all these husband and wife wedding teams!). They were super nice and turned out some beautiful photos of Heather and Rob’s big day.

    Gorgeous, right? Another thing I love about checking out the photos of weddings we’ve done is to check and see if we made it into any of them. If we don’t… SUCCESS! We are doing our job at being out of the way, yet capturing every moment. :)

    This weekend we are finishing up Brandon and Melissa’s Ocala Wedding highlight reel. Can’t wait to share it with y’all. These two are so freakin’ in love. For reals. It just flows out of their glowing faces. As soon as the hubs finishes up the color correction (didn’t know video had to be color corrected? yeah… takes FOREVER), I’ll have it posted.

    This past year has been truly amazing. I absolutely LOVE filming weddings and putting together highlight reels for our clients to share. They are so much fun! I still can’t believe the hubs and I have started our own business. I love it so much! I have to pinch myself to remind myself that “Hey! We are wedding videographers!” So exciting. Thank you all for the support and love through out this past year. It’s incredible. Thank you. :)

  • Wedding of the Week: Meghan:: A True Gator Bride

    Since it is game day here in Gator-ville, I feel the need to post this incredibly Gator Wedding!

    First off I want to say that I absolutely LOVE my readers. I love them even more when they contact me with their seriously awesome Gator Weddings!

    Meghan contacted me a few weeks ago. She’s was a Gator Bride with a ‘Bama lovin’ fiance. Although he didn’t exactly go for the Orange and Blue wedding Meghan desired, they did end up with an incredibly fabulous orange wedding. She also has a super cute blog (that has become by weekly read), Flip Flops & Gator Gear. Check out their love story and wedding pictures below.↓

    Allen and I met at UF 3 years ago. He was raised in Alabama and is a diehard fan, but somehow ended up in the Sunshine State. I like to think he just wanted to go to the school with the better football team. He actually really likes Gator football (how could you not in Gainesville?!), unless they are playing ‘bama. The 2008 SEC Championship Game was a real test of our relationship.

    When we decided to get married, I immediately started pitching the orange and blue color scheme to everyone. No one seemed to appreciate it as much as me. Shocking, I know! We ended up with shades of orange, but I managed to sneak some Gator details in throughout. Allen even wore a blatant Gator orange tie to the wedding…but he didn’t have much of a choice. No worries though, I surprised him with some love for the Crimson Tide as well.

    Our wedding ceremony was at the Orlando LDS Temple and our reception was at Citrus Restaurant in downtown Orlando. Every detail was Gator orange from the place cards to my shoes. My bridesmaids set up a Gator hand-puppet in the bridal suite (so he discretely made his way into several “getting ready” shots) and I wore a half Florida Gator/half Alabama garter. Our guestbook was a football that was hand-painted with a Gator logo on one side and an Alabama logo on the other. I suprised Allen with a groom’s cake in the shape of legendary Alabama coach Bear Bryant’s iconic houndstooth hat. One of the best memories of the evening was when our first dance was wrapping up; in comes Florida mascot Albert the Alligator. He tapped on Allen’s shoulder to cut in on the dance and everyone was so shocked and excited that they were cheering….even those foolish Alabama fans in the room!
