We kind of knew what to expect from Jen and Colton when they told us they would be drinking shots during the ceremony, but there is so much more to them that we learned throughout our day together and it only made us like them more. They had a smaller attendance and it worked out very well for them. Everyone there wanted to dance! Mostly the kids, but young and old alike were seen out on the floor shaking a leg. That’s what happens when you invite your closest friends and family. The bonds are tighter, the relationships closer, the tears more valuable. Jen and Colton, come back and have another wedding anytime!
We went to a new place we had never shot a wedding before. As a matter of fact, no one had shot one there before! We got to watch the inaugural use of The Barn at Rock Creek in Leland where Bride Lesley and Groom Sten had quite a shindig planned! We’ve never seen such attention to detail in a new venue anywhere. There was all kinds of antique decor which those two had found themselves from all over the east coast. They served the best type of food there is: Southern. There was a falcon involved. There were actually several raptors involved. You’ll have to watch the highlights, it’s too much to explain.
We made the trip out to beautiful Ocean Isle Beach to hang out with Meredith and Luke. Meredith’s parents have a giant, beautiful home out there and we made use of it to get some great shots of Meredith and company getting ready. We went out on the beach and shot footage, where Joy had arranged for some special shell art celebrating the union of the happy couple. The reception was on Pogie’s rooftop, which had a stunning view and also had a great dance floor area with a convenient bar. To get to the dinner service, you just have to go downstairs! Everyone put on cowboy hats late in the evening and danced together to a song called “Deep In The Heart Of Texas.” We’re not from Texas, but we like to get down with people from all over the continental US. Thank you for choosing a beautiful location for us to shoot, and thanks for choosing Brick Street Cinema!
