Shyanie + Mark | Austin wedding film ~Texas wedding videographers~

The roller coaster ride of emotions we experienced on Shyanie and Mark’s wedding weekend was pretty crazy. One minute they had us in stitches, the next minute we were reaching for the Kleenex. Their friends and family are so sweet and so welcoming, we can’t thank them enough for their kindness. Their downtown Austin rehearsal dinner, and wedding and reception at the Wild Onion Ranch, felt more like a big family reunion. But you can bet we knew we were at a wedding when Shyanie stepped in to her stunning lace dress, walked down the aisle to a teary-eyed Mark, and they shared their sweet personal vows. Guests ate biscuits, played cornhole, and danced under the stars. It truly was a wonderful weekend.

Hayden + Ben | Tulsa wedding film ~Oklahoma wedding videographers~

For Hayden and Ben, their wedding day was about more than becoming husband and wife. It was about finally getting to truly be together. They’ve been long-distance their entire relationship, and as they put it in their vows, for the first time in over five years they’ll finally get to wake up in the same zip code. They had a fabulous weekend from start to finish… from the rehearsal dinner at the historic Mayo Hotel, to their beautiful ceremony at First United Methodist downtown and gorgeous reception at Southern Hills Country Club. Our friends The Wavetones kept the party rockin’, and it was all topped off with perhaps the most confetti I’ve ever seen on a dance floor. Hayden and Ben, thanks for allowing us to be a part of all the fun.

Meredith + Tate | Charleston, SC wedding film ~destination wedding videographers~

Meredith and Tate are so full of life… so full of personality… and the beauty and fun of Charleston, South Carolina was the perfect choice for their classic yet lively destination wedding. Watching this group bowl was hilarious, and listening to story after story at their rehearsal dinner confirmed what giving, caring, and funny people they are, and showed just how obvious their love is to everyone else. The team at Tara Guerard Soiree put together a flawless day, and Simply Irresistible was so amazing they had people stopping on the sidewalk to watch (no joke). We hope you love this short film of their fabulous weekend.

Jenny + Greg | Tulsa wedding film ~Oklahoma wedding videographers~

The first time I met Jenny, she brought her mom and bridesmaids… and they were a hoot! We seriously could have sat and talked for hours. I knew right away the wedding day would be a blast. Jenny and Greg are so sweet and so fun. Dresser Mansion was the perfect setting for their beautiful, easygoing day. We hope you love their story as much as we do.

Katy + David | Tulsa wedding film ~Oklahoma wedding videographers~

Three things I love about Katy and David’s wedding… 1) The story of how they ended up together after years of being “just friends.” 2) How they made their wedding about honoring the people who mean the most to them. They considered not even having a “typical” wedding and reception, but chose to do one so they could celebrate and recognize the important people in their lives. They even made individual place cards listing positive attributes of each and every person who attended. 3) Their word “resurprise.” Want to know what it means? I guess you’ll just have to watch their film. ūüėČ

Michelle + Kellan | Round Top wedding {Texas wedding videographers}

We fell in love with Michelle and Kellan immediately. These are two of the kindest, most funny people you will ever meet. The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell in Round Top, Texas was the perfect setting for their country chic wedding. It almost felt more like a giant family reunion, and the lawn games, pie bar, and food truck dinner contributed to that relaxed atmosphere. Michelle and Kellan chose to exchange their personal vows privately, and it made for such a special, intimate moment amid all of the festivities. Rick and I are already planning a return trip to Round Top as soon as we can manage it, and I’m thinking¬†‚Ä™#‚Äémichellan‚Ĩ¬†might just have to come along.¬†

Emily + Matthew | Oklahoma City wedding film ~Oklahoma wedding videographers~

We always love weddings where we get to see lots of familiar faces. Emily’s bridesmaid, Dayton, is a former bride of ours so we already knew many of the girls in the wedding party, and they’re such a fun group. Eventures did an amazing job designing this beautiful Gaillardia wedding, and SoulSations put on one heck of a party. And let’s not finish without paying tribute to Matthew’s dance skills… I’m not sure we’ve ever had such an energetic groom. Emily and Matthew, congrats on an amazing day.

Jimmy + Jess | Palm Desert wedding film {Destination wedding videographers}

Talk about one amazing weekend. Palm Desert, California is gorgeous, the wedding at Toscana Country Club was even more stunning, and Jess and Jimmy’s energy is off the charts! We always ask our couples if their first dance will be choreographed. I knew we were in for a fun night when Jess answered with a laugh, “….sort of?” Jess is a pro beach volleyball player and Jimmy is in the NFL, and while they may be serious, hard-working athletes, when they’re together there is and adorable playfulness between them that is too cute for words. …unless– as we learned during their ceremony– those words are being spoken in baby-talk. We had a fabulous time and wish we could do it all over again.

Nicole + Grant | Tulsa wedding film ~Oklahoma wedding videographers~

I love New Year’s Eve weddings, I really do. And this one was extra special because Nicole is one of the event coordinators at The Mayo, but this time we had the privilege of working with her on her OWN wedding. And oh was it a blast! The rehearsal dinner was filled with touching toasts, and funny ones too… usually at Grant’s expense. As for the wedding day itself, it was sweet, fun, and of course stunning. Top it all off with sparklers on the cake and confetti canons at midnight, and you have the perfect day. Nicole and Grant’s story began over a decade ago, and we hope you love their story as much as we do.

Katie + Will | Napa Valley wedding ~Destination wedding videographers~

Katie and Will have quite the story, topped off with quite the wedding week in Napa. FYI, if you don’t already know this, early December is the “rainy season” in Napa Valley. We were greeted by “stormageddon” which knocked out power and caused flooding in San Francisco and all the way up to Napa and surrounding areas. Katie and Will must have a direct line to God, though, because the rain stopped just long enough to get the wedding day in. It was fun and beautiful all around. Want to know their story? I guess you’ll just have to watch their film.
