Nashville Wedding Video | Country Music Hall of Fame | Lauren + Ryan

Rarely do you meet a couple that has such an impact on you. From the moment I met Ryan and Lauren, I knew they were truly special souls. I knew that this Nashville wedding video would turn out really well. During his interview, Ryan said quite possibly the nicest things about Lauren that I have ever heard. Any girl would die to have their boyfriend or husband say these things about them; and yet if they did, it would still seem forced. However, when Ryan talks like this, he means it, and you know he means it. It’s genuine. Lauren has a huge heart and her love for Ryan is as clear as day. You will also quickly learn of Lauren’s love for Jesus. You soon realize that she lives this life of love day in and day out. I am honored to have had the chance to meet both of them and share in their wedding day. I love how the film turned out. You will laugh at the story telling how they met, and cry when you hear them talk about each other.

It was a cold, windy day in Nashville.  They braved the cold to do their first look at a park just south of the city.  Following this we headed to Scarritt Bennett Center, which is located on Vanderbilt’s campus.  Wightman Chapel is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for their very emotional ceremony. Ryan couldn’t hold it together as Lauren finally came down the aisle. You can see her mouth ‘I love you’ as she is walking towards him. Ryan was a wreck… so sweet to see!

Following the ceremony we went to the reception, which was held at the Country Music Hall of Fame, located in the heart of Nashville.   They were in an amazing space on the top floor with huge windows looking out on the city of Nashville. They had a custom chandelier made with crystals cascading down from its box shape.  Those same crystals trickled down behind the band as they entertained all the guests. They caught the light just right and sparkled in the background as people danced and enjoyed their evening.

I later found out that after everyone had left, Lauren and Ryan gathered all the flowers into the center of the dance floor and sat among them, sharing their first moment in privacy as husband and wife.

John & Melissa – Wedding Film
John and Melissa were a great couple to film. Despite some heavy downpours right after the ceremony... the rain cleared and we had beautiful weather for the rest of the evening. The Rolls Royce was a class choice, and I swear the centerpieces on the head table were taller than John.This is my 3rd wedding film... and the first one that I would consider a complete film. The other two that I had done did not have any of the reception.I would love to hear your feedback! Thanks! Big thanks goes to Josh Stephens -a true professional :) for being my second shooter. Thanks to his slider and 7D we were able to get some slo-mo going and also introduce ...

Wedding Video at SmogShoppe in Southern CA | Maura + Matthew
I had so much fun spending the weekend with Maura and Matthew in Southern California this past August. They are such a kind, enthusiastic, and caring couple and I knew going into it that the day would be special. Their venue, SmogShoppe played a very important part of the day and separated us from the buzz of the city. It is a little oasis in the land of concrete. The Culver Hotel is where everyone stayed and got ready. It is a historic hotel on the west side of Los Angeles. This is the hotel that the entire cast of 'The Wizard of Oz' slept when they were filming that movie. Word on the street is that they had multiple munchkins in each room ...

Ed + Shade
I travelled to Asbury Park in the great State of New Jersey to walk in Bruce Springsteen's steps and capture Ed and Shade's beautiful wedding ceremony at the historic Paramount Theater.   I absolutely love these two. They have such great hearts. I could sense the minute that I met them that they were something special. I love getting to travel for weddings. I feel that I connect with the bride and groom much more when I spend the whole weekend with them, and this was no exception. I'm already trying to figure out how to take them up on their offer to bring my family to Asbury Park for a getaway! I love the way this wedding film turned o ...
