You’re planning your wedding ceremony, and your officiant asks about your vows. Traditional or personal? Speaking publicly about why you love your partner? In front of everyone? Does that idea thrill you or freak you out? Telling your story your way If the idea of declaring your love gives you goosebumps (in the best way), we can wholeheartedly say that you will never forget taking the time to write down what your partner means to you and then pronouncing them publicly.  We love this example at Chandra and Davon’s wedding at Villa Terrace. This is just the tiniest portion of…

Christmas wedding perfection at Rustic Manor

Snow does not materialize for Christmas on command. Just ask the millions of skiers who eagerly look to the sky each winter. Not a snowflake was in sight when we met Mary and Mike last summer to talk about filming their wedding ceremony at St. Charles Catholic Church and reception at Rustic Manor 1848. The Hoyt Park Beer Garden where we met was drenched in sunshine, but Mary and Mike had snowflakes in their eyes as they described the event they were planning just two days before Christmas. They were even planning some portraits on snowshoes to reflect their love of…

Weddings often bring out the very best in everyone. And why not? It’s a gathering of family and friends to wish two people well on their official start in marriage. Moments big and small. Weddings also often inspires people to grand gestures: meaningful toasts and speeches, sentimental gifts and, yes, sometimes very creative performances. We’ll get to those incredible toasts and gifts in other blog posts, but this missive is all about performances at weddings. And we’re going to start you out with one of our favorites from last year at the wedding of Chandra and Davon. We were so…

We’re in the deep heart of editing season, and it’s giving me wonderful insight on why cinematography and wedding videos are so key to capturing your day fully. When I’m editing a video’s story together, I’m looking for moments — big and small — to not only tell the story of your day but keep your interest. I like to say that video captures these moments in their fullest sense because we have the elements of movement and sound, which add complexity to what your seeing and, as has been proved in research, ignite parts of your brain to tap…

While there were many beautiful and romantic moments on Sarah and Adam’s wedding day in late September, the one that will always linger with us is the fiery sunset that broke through the all-day clouds. It was as if Mother Nature was saying: The love these two share deserves my most glorious colors. And they were awash in the warm hues of golden hour. The day started much earlier at the couples’ church, St. Matthews Evangelical Church in Wauwatosa, in a service that welcomed guests with live piano and cello music. Pastor Matt Kruse offered a heart-warming sermon and blessings, important…

Sometimes, couples pick a wedding date that fits their perfect season. And other times, the date means a whole lot more. In the case of Megan and Justin’s wedding on Sept. 17th, the numbers on the calendar were a link to something that had happened nearly four decades ago: the day Megan’s parents tied the knot and created a marriage that has not only stood the test of time but has been a beacon of stability and love for everyone to see. Who wouldn’t want to share that incredible date? And so it was with Megan and Justin’s big day that…

Laughter and mustaches at Tundra Lodge

When the whole bridal party is given sunglasses with dangling mustaches, you know laughter will be plentiful during this wedding celebration. We’re pretty certain bride Libbi came up with the idea of the ‘stache glasses, but the fact that Colin fully embraced them — even donning them for their grand entrance to the reception at the Tundra Lodge in Green Bay — shows just how in tune these two are with each other. Libbi is an irrepressible beauty, quick with a laugh, dancing to her own song and tender toward those she loves. Collin is a handsome sentinel, a quieter soul who just shakes his…

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Ashley and a boy named Frankie. They were children, really, middle schoolers with silly little crushes on each other. Or so most thought. So when when the world shifted ever so slightly and the girl went away, no one fretted about what had been. The universe, they reckoned, was vast and would help them grow and learn and soak in all that came before them. Years passed. Then, as often happens, the world shifted ever so slightly again. And the girl came back. Their love took flight, fluttering on the wings of a butterfly and…

The wedding party had processed, and it was that frozen moment of anticipation before the bride walked up the aisle at Villa Terrace. All eyes had turned to the doorway, where bride Chandra was about to enter. Then, groom Davon began to softly sing, just as Chandra began walking up the aisle. From the moment I saw you From the moment I looked into your eyes There was something about you I knew, I knew That you were once in a lifetime A treasure near impossible to find And I know how lucky I am to have you Then, the beautiful…

We love the story that about the night Ashley met her husband, John: “At one point – early in the night, Ashley looked over her shoulder and noticed a VERY strong, VERY muscular, VERY handsome man sitting at the bar ALONE. She kept chatting with friends and KEPT glancing over her shoulder to peek at this new eye candy.” Can’t you just hear the emotion in the words? That’s Ashley: exuberant, funny, bold and charming. She’s the perfect foil to her mountain of a man hubby, John, a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army and instructor at Norwich University. John’s far more quiet than his bride,…
