Evie + John | Branson wedding film {Missouri wedding videographers}

We often hear stories of relationships that began with a setup (including our own), but Evie and John’s has a twist. Want the details? Well I guess you’ll just have to watch their film! :-) These two kept us laughing and smiling all day long, and they managed to keep the rain away too. They had a gorgeous ceremony on the lawn at Big Cedar Lodge, followed by great party inside. We had a fabulous weekend at Big Cedar, and are so happy they asked us to be a part of their big day.

Jocelyn + Ryan | Tulsa wedding film {Oklahoma wedding videographers}

Getting to know Jocelyn and Ryan before their wedding was a blast because they are always so upbeat, happy and excited… and their big day was no exception. They were all smiles and full of life, and ready to have a blast with their family and friends. They had a beautiful ceremony at one of Tulsa’s classic cathedrals, Trinity Episcopal, followed by a fun reception at The Silo where guests who wanted to party could hit the dance floor, and those who wanted to relax could chill out on the patio on this beautiful night.

Dayton + Matt | Tulsa wedding film {Oklahoma wedding videographers}

Dayton had a sort of calm, nervous energy about her on her wedding day… yeah yeah it’s a contradiction I know ;-)… and you couldn’t help but have the building excitement rub off on you a bit. Matt, meanwhile, seemed as cool as a cucumber… but I think I saw him get a tad antsy as he waited to see his bride for the first time. They were so excited for their “first look,” and after that they were chill, ready to get married, and party the night away.

Abbey + Hunter | Edmond wedding film {Oklahoma wedding videographers}

Abbey and Hunter had such a sweet and beautiful wedding day. They didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony, but still wanted to read the special notes they’d written, and we love moments like that. Their ceremony was followed by a stunning backyard reception, surrounded by horses and nature. Cocktail hour was spent under the trees, with old windows and doors hung as floating tables. And even when storms came through, the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of this bunch.

Vanessa + Ryan | Tulsa wedding film {Oklahoma wedding videographers}

We decided to do a little something different with the opening to Vanessa & Ryan’s wedding highlight. They both work at Disney, as do a number of their friends and wedding guests. Since they put a bit of Disney flare into their wedding day by way of music, we did the same with their film. Vanessa wanted to look like a princess, and I think she nailed it. They had a classic, elegant wedding at The Mayo Hotel, with their ceremony on the steps of the Grand Hall and their reception in the Crystal Ballroom. And let’s not forget the fun at their rehearsal dinner at the Summit Club. One of my favorite parts of any wedding weekend is hearing friends and family share stories about the couple, and this was no exception.

Morgan + Brian | Marco Island, Florida wedding {Destination wedding videographers}

Let’s start with the obvious… the setting. Marco Island was a gorgeous place for a destination wedding and I wish we’d had more time to explore the area. But even more beautiful than the scenery were the people involved in Morgan and Brian’s wedding. They wanted to have a small beach wedding with their closest friends and family, and I must say I think it was a fabulous idea. The entire weekend was very relaxed and intimate, and we learned so much about this wonderful couple at their rehearsal dinner. We loved sitting outside by the water, watching the sun set, as one after the other, each person shared how kind and giving and full of the love of Christ these two are. We hope you can feel it too.

Debbie + Chris | Russellville wedding film {Arkansas wedding videographers}

The running joke the weekend of Debbie and Chris’ wedding was the “wink, wink” Debbie would give anytime she spoke of the “violinist.” I recall Grace (one of our fabulous associate shooters) turning to me and asking, “Okay, what’s the deal with the ‘violinist’?” The answer… there wasn’t one. Apparently the one thing Chris always wanted for his wedding was a bagpipe player, but because they were keeping things small (fewer than 40 guests including wedding party) he knew they wouldn’t do that. Leave it to Debbie to hire a bagpipe player, and to keep it a secret until the ceremony began. Chris definitely got choked up, but we’re sure that’s not the only reason why. :-) They held their ceremony at the absolutely beautiful Subiaco Abbey, and for their reception they had a lovely intimate dinner at the Russellville Country Club. We may have worked all day, but they truly made us feel like guests, and we loved spending the day with them.

Brooke + Brett | Kansas City wedding film {Missouri wedding videographers}

One of my favorite moments from Brooke and Brett’s wedding was when one of the guys described Brooke as being like “a really cool brother with long hair.” I loved this because, in a funny way, it said a lot about this entire group. Each person there was like “one of the guys.” It was a giant group of great pals all around, who love their friends, family, and a good party. And speaking of a great party, this gang knows how to do it right. The ceremony was beautiful, the guests (including some of our former couples) were so fun, and the party was rockin’. Thanks Brooke and Brett for having us up to KC for your amazing wedding weekend!

Halie + Andrew | Tulsa wedding film {Oklahoma wedding videographers}

I don’t believe I’ve ever been around a group who could go from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other so fast and so often. One minute the tears were flowing, and then next minute they were jumping up and down… literally. And I LOVE that about this bride and groom, and their families too. Halie and Andrew were so happy, so fun, so sweet, and so very much in love. We had some other PenWeddings brides and grooms at the wedding, which always adds to the fun for us. It was an absolutely beautiful day… perfect for an outdoor ceremony (as long as you didn’t mind the crazy wind). And the party was a total blast. One of the cutest things about these two is the fact that Andrew’s last name is Haile… and he married Halie… and their families had fun with that little fact for sure.

Callie + Jake | Tulsa wedding film {Oklahoma wedding videographers}

You don’t have to be around Callie for long before you’ll find yourself smiling from ear to ear or busting out laughing about something. One friend described her as, “weird, in a good way.” Both she and Jake are loving, easy-going, and incredibly fun to be around. Making their wedding even more fun for us was the fact that we already knew their family (having shot Callie’s sister’s and cousin’s weddings) and a number of our other couples were guests. We saw so many friendly and familiar faces, especially when they all took to the crazy-packed dance floor, designed to feel like an amazing night club. Our most favorite moment of the day was when Callie asked if she could run to Jake for their first look. And of course we can’t ignore the amazing cake and stunning decor. This day was filled with so much energy, we hope you can feel it too.

And as a bonus, we’re including the video of Callie’s fun bridal portrait session in this post too. Edmonson Weddings did a fabulous job with the photos.
