Off the cuff – Getting unveiled in Wilmington

A few weeks back, Wilmington Weddings and Events asked us to film a bridal mixer. It all took place at a posh, yet intimate venue called The Loft on Front.

We had a blast meeting some friendly couples and working alongside some very talented vendors.

Here’s the film we put together!

Enjoy!

Josh and Lindsey. Club at Hillbrook Highlight Film

Our last wedding of 2013 was definitely one to talk about!  Josh & Lindsey are an amazingly sweet couple.  So many details went into their big day, all led by superstar wedding planner Jennifer Hartman of Heart 2 Heart Occasions.  We delivered their Feature Film to them and then reworked the edit a bit to create this wonderful highlight film for them.   I could talk forever about the details of their wedding day, but it’s just easier to show you their highlight film.  We hope you enjoy!

Off the cuff – ‘Tis the season to be the Reason

Every year around this time, I reflect back on what means the most in life.  It is not planned,  it just happens.  While it may be cold out, with dirty snow on the ground, and gray muck on the cars, it’s also the time to take in how grateful we are to have the time to spend with our loved ones!  This year, on a personal level, my wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in Punta Cana.  I trained and ran my first 5K.  My son started Second grade and my daughter, Kindergarten!  We traveled to the mountains of Tennessee and also to the beach.  We had teeth lost and enjoyed dance recitals, soccer, Tae Kwon Do, baseball, swimming lessons and gymnastics and sushi, yes lots of sushi.  We honored my dad on the 1-year anniversary of his passing by spreading his ashes on his favorite lake where he loved to fish.  Lastly, my brother and his wife finally moved back home from Las Vegas, after being there 17 years.  We are still looking for the teeth!  Needless to say, we created a lot of memories from this year.

On a professional level, we said goodbye to our company Attention to Detail Wedding Films, and gave life to Cuff & Veil Wedding Films

My couples that were married this year were all super cool to work with!  I have been inspired by their love for each other and that really helps us put together an inspiring film.  We worked with many new vendors this year and it was a joy to work alongside so many professionals.  We had  some Friday weddings, and even a few Sunday weddings, which was a welcomed change.  My team & I pulled off an amazing feat (not really, but I think so!)! We 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 with me and next time I’ll be wearing ice packs!

My last wedding of 2013 was at the beautiful Hillbrook Country Club, 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 so stayed tuned!

A few weeks ago, I took my wife and kids to see Christmas lights.  Now these aren’t just ordinary Christmas lights, these lights were magical!  They synchronized to the music and changed colors.  It was almost like being at a Trans-Siberian Orchestra show on a much smaller budget minus the pyro!  As my children sang along to Frosty the Snowman, with smiles on their faces, I quietly observed the lights twinkle in my childrens’ eyes.  While holding my wife’s hand, it was that moment that I relived all of these memories of this year.  I remained silent and took it in, with a smile on my face and tear in my eye.

That moment froze in time as I reflected for those few seconds, but I also took a moment to look forward at the many more memories being created with family & friends.  I cherish these times.  I hope you all do the same.  Whether it’s Christmas, or any special holiday that you celebrate, may you create awesome memories with the ones you love.

Make it Magical & Be Merry!

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.
