Chris & Hope’s Wedding Film!

Chris and Hope’s wedding mixed the beauty of tradition and uniqueness.  It was our first wedding of this summer with the ceremony inside a church, Messiah Lutheran.  Several of the most powerful moments of the day happened there as we saw both of their sets of parents worshipping with passionate hearts and contented smiles.  Our favorites, though, were catching Chris looking heavenward and Hope, eyes closed in prayer, and basking in the pleasure of God’s love.  The best part is to have actually caught this on camera too!

Then the uniqueness began as we celebrated their reception at The Fuller House at Bay Arts.  Moved from its original location by barge on Lake Erie in 1984, this historical home has been converted to the most unique ceremony location we have seen this year.  It was adorned with so many little details, chalk signs, nooks and crannies, and twinkly lights!
The miracle of the day was the fact that it rained-and I mean rained-all morning.  The forecast said to expect that rain straight through to the reception.  Well, low and behold, shortly before the arrival of Chris and Hope at the church, it tapered off.  We were able to film them outside at Huntington Beach and in a lovely wildflower field with nary a drop!  
Here are the delightful vendors we had the privilege to work with:

Brad and Lauren’s Photos

This past Saturday we had the honor of filming the wedding of Brad and Lauren.  They were such a sweet couple!  We spent a lot of great time capturing Lauren and her bridesmaids getting ready.  They were so welcoming-even offering us a chance to partake in some much-appreciated Subway sandwiches!

Below are just a few photos from our amazing photography partners at Imagine It Photography.  Stephanie and John do amazing work.  For more photos of Brad and Lauren’s wedding, click here.

Beth and I have our creative juices flowing as we continue to create Brad and Lauren’s wedding film. We’re really liking it!  We’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Will & Morgan’s Wedding Film!

You couldn’t have asked for a more stunning, summer day for a wedding when Will and Morgan got married outdoors with a glistening Lake Erie as a backdrop.  Then we got to catch them on film as they walked the wooded grounds of Camp Luther.  After a stop at the brewery where they met, we headed off to a reception full of surprise choreography, dance antics, and lots of laughter.

Enjoy their wedding film as much as we enjoyed producing it!

A Wedding in a Warehouse?

Looking for a unique location for a wedding?  Our partners at Imagine It Photography shot Liza and Josh’s big day at the Ariel International Center.

According to the official website, “The Ariel International Center, is a historic 68,000
square foot building, located on 3 acres, overseeing the Lake and the Cleveland

Stephanie Uptmor at Imagine It said, “it is full of vintage details and has a rustic feel while still having killer views of downtown Cleveland!”

It’s hard to believe that something as beautiful as this is inside of this old building (below) that all of us have seen while driving I-90!
