Jordan & Ralph : Atlantic Beach, NC

Meet Jordan and Ralph! These two have a crazy-romantic bliss about them that’s an absolute treat to be around. From our first time talking to them on the phone, we got a sense of their fun-loving spirits and just knew that their day would be a cinematic dream come true!

Jordan is originally from Morehead City, North Carolina and followed a job out to California, but what she found there was even better… Ralph, the love of her life! The two brought their California-meets-Carolina love story together at The Dunes Club in breathtaking Atlantic Beach, which neighbors Jordan’s hometown on the North Carolina coast, a place that is precious to her and full of family meaning and memories. From a pool party in the morning to dancing at midnight, Jordan and Ralph stamped this magnificent shindig with their own enthusiastic energy and original style. Friends and family from all over came to celebrate, and even Ralph’s parents, who couldn’t be there physically, were able to watch all the fun via FaceTime live-streaming. The love and connections shared by everyone just overflowed and made this occasion something incredibly emotional and heartwarming to capture!

And the party? Well, it was pretty much wedding film gold. Ralph is part of VOX DJs of Manhattan Beach, California and it was so awesome that his partners, MC KC Campbell and Rob (aka DJ Solution) came out to be a part of the celebration. They got the party started with an upbeat, intricately planned bridal party grand entrance before Spare Change took the stage to play an epic show! Along with the band’s mind-blowing performance, dazzling stage lights and glowsticks-a-plenty, everyone packed the dance floor and partied like legends. And the party didn’t stop. Seriously. After Spare Change played their last song, DJ Solution returned for a late night session. Have you ever been at a party where EVERYONE danced ALL night long? Well this was it. Magical.

Jordan and Ralph, your love is a dream and we are so grateful to have witnessed it. We’ve never seen a couple so excited to get married and we had a blast meeting and filming you two. We wish you many new adventures, from this coast to the next. May your love continue to be an inspiration to everyone you meet along the way!

Julia & Brandon : Wake Forest, NC

Happy 2016! We figured we’d start our year by sharing one of our best wedding films from 2015, and another one of favorites! Some weddings you just stand back and watch everyone drinking in how intoxicatingly wonderful true love is… this was definitely one of those weddings.

Julia and Brandon were married at The Sutherland, a breathtaking eighteenth century estate located in the historic town of Wake Forest, North Carolina. The property boasts the most beautiful trees and gardens, a grand mansion used as a bridal suite, a charming cottage for the groom’s party, and a stunning pavilion with an epic ceiling. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect location for Julia and Brandon’s spectacular day!

In our first moments filming them opening their gifts from one another, we could tell that Julia and Brandon have just about the deepest love a couple can have. They adore each other and it definitely shows. To see not only their love, but the love that their family and friends have for them, was remarkable. Julia’s bond with her father and brother brought tears to our eyes. Theirs is a family deeply connected to their faith and truly savoring each moment they get to spend with one another.

Throughout the day there were so many unforgettable moments that we captured, from Julia and her bridesmaids watching the rain from the balcony, to Julia’s first look with her dad and brother, to Brandon’s reaction to seeing Julia for the first time down the aisle in her gorgeous 12-layer gown, to the enchanting first dances, to the touching speeches given by Julia’s father, brother and best friend. Then this happened… Julia’s dad got out his electric guitar and accompanied by a harmonica player and Julia’s brother singing along, the three performed a hilarious rendition of “The House Is Rockin”. Such an awesome surprise for Julia and Brandon’s special day! And after an incredible evening with everyone they love gathered ‘round and heartfelt moments rolling out every-which-way, Julia and Brandon stole away under a magnificent lit up oak tree to drink it all in. Then they ran through a path of sparklers to their getaway car – a perfect finish to a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Julia and Brandon, you two are just as beautiful as your wedding day. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to capture these amazing memories on your most intimate of days. We feel blessed to have been a part of it all, and wish you a lifetime of happiness and everlasting love!
