Handcrafted gets Handpicked!

So, how cool is this?

We were chosen to participate in the Handpicked | A Different Kind of Bridal Event.

It’s true!  We are so stoked to be a part of this non-traditional bridal event, along with teaming up with so many awesome vendors.  All headed up by the ever so sweet and talented Baci Designer.2013Handpicked_Badge

What is it, you ask?  If you have ever been to a bridal show before…  Think the exact opposite!

Let’s do a side by side comparison:

Typical Bridal Show:

– Expect masses of people.  I compare it to herding cattle!

– Little or no time to talk to the the vendor(s) you are thinking about hiring for one of the biggest days of your lives!

– Endless supplies of “stuff” from vendors you’ll NEVER remember!

– Maybe you’ll get cake.

We would love to see YOU there!

Off the cuff – 2013, A recap, but looking forward to 2014

My couples that were married this year were all super cool to work with!  I have been inspired by their love of each other and that really helps us put together a great film.  There were many vendors that we worked with this year and it was a joy to work alongside so many professionals.

This year, we had  some Friday weddings, and even a few Sunday weddings, which was a welcome change.  I pulled off an amazing feat (Not really, but I think so!), my team and I shot three weddings in two consecutive days.  It was a bit crazy, and trust me, I had a hard time getting out of bed Monday morning, but I enjoyed every minute of it!  Would I do it again..?  Of course, but I would make sure I have some extra Ibuprofen and wearable ice packs on hand!

My last wedding of 2013 was at the beautiful Hillbrook Country Club, and we had a great time celebrating with Josh & Lindsey, plus they had an AMAZING S’mores Bar!.  We hope to have their film ready to view soon.
