Collynn & Josh : Clinton, NC
We’ve gone way too long without sharing any films! Today we wanted to share with you one of the sweetest and most charming couples we have ever worked with… meet Collynn and Josh! Their wedding weekend was nothing short of perfect. There was so much love and warmth in each moment, and we adored our time getting to know them and their precious families.
To kick off the celebration, Josh’s family hosted a beautiful rehearsal dinner party at Collynn’s family home in Clinton, North Carolina. Guests gathered for a lovely dinner, heartwarming speeches, the most amazing hound dog groom’s cake, lots of fun dancing, and great music by the Martin Davis Band. It was awesome to see everyone come together to share in all the excitement with Collynn and Josh for their big day ahead!
From the beginning of the day filming their preparations, to the end of the night when they rode off to start their new lives together, Collynn and Josh’s deep commitment to their families, faith and each other was apparent. Collynn and her sister missed their grandfather deeply throughout the day, but kept his memory and all of the special times they shared together close to their hearts. Children also played an important role in Collynn and Josh’s day. Collynn works as a teacher at a preschool she runs with her mom, and had a special relationship with the flower girl and ring bearer, whom she has known and taught their entire lives. Josh’s identical twin brother, Jordan also had an important role delivering Collynn and Josh’s gifts and letters to one another. Josh’s gift to Collynn included a beautiful cross necklace engraved with their wedding date and a family heirloom from his grandmother, which Collynn lovingly attached to her bouquet. Collynn’s gift for Josh was a watercolor painting of his family’s property, which impressed not only him but all the groomsmen. Rowan Baptist, where the ceremony took place, was also the same church where Collynn’s parents were married, so every detail was connected to the couple’s rich family heritage!
The ceremony was one of the most special we have ever witnessed. Every moment was orchestrated around the unique celebration of Collynn and Josh with the most important people beside them. The pastor was even a graduate of Collynn’s family preschool! His message, about the importance of growing together as a couple, was wise beyond his years and a sound reminder of what is truly important in a marriage. Close friends shared bible readings, prayers and songs as Collynn and Josh made their commitments to one another. After their kiss, the couple joined the bridal party aboard a classic trolley headed for the reception back at Collynn’s family home!
The evening was complete with elegant decor, fine dining, and an electrifying musical performance by the Blackwater Rhythm and Blues Band. Dancing under a sky full of stars, this night couldn’t have been any more romantic! Good times were had by all and at the end, Collynn and Josh rode away on antique Buick road car in absolute style!
Collynn and Josh, we were honored to have had this opportunity to capture your spectacular wedding weekend! We pray that each time you watch your film, it will bring you back to this time in your lives and remind you of all the feelings and memories you shared together. We wish you the best life and a marriage legacy that will be passed down for many generations to come. God Bless!
